Inaugural Session: Open Jam

All styles welcome. Classic Rock, Folk, Blues, Country, Bluegrass etc. This group is for guitar players looking to get together and jam in a laid-back, supportive environment. We are primarily about acoustic guitar but if you want to bring in another stringed instrument or an electric at low volume, feel free. We will go around in a circle and everyone will pick a song to play or pass. As we develop we may theme sessions on a style, ie. Classic Rock night, Blues, Folk etc. We ask that you have basic chord knowledge, as this is not meant to be a beginners lesson group. However, you need not be an advanced player - the more the merrier! Maybe we will do some beginner groups down the line. I hope to see you all.

    Andy, RE possible Hillsborough County location: I talked with "Alex" at Paragon Music @ 2119 Hillsborough Avenue West who said they would likely be able to host this group. If interested, call (813)[masked] and ask for Dick Rumore the owner. The place is very cool and very friendly.

    I had every intention of being there, had my guitar in the car before work but just couldn't make the time change work. Hopefully I can make it next week. (Is it going to happen again next week?)

    If there are any people who just want to get together on a weekend or something, hit me back. Maybe we can meet in a park or something.

    Hey, I just figured out how to change the attending count!

    February 25, 2014

  • Andy

    Please update your RSVP if you cannot make it. Telling us here in the message board is nice but you are still part of the attending count and I have no way to alter that. Thanks.

  • bill

    I will be there where in the store will we have it?

    February 24, 2014

    • Andy

      In the large room in the back of the store. Just ask the person at the front, they should know about the meetup.

      February 24, 2014

  • Lisa

    I'm still going to try to make it. Hopefully it will go on til 8. I'll try to be there by 7.

    February 21, 2014

    • Andy

      It would probably go on beyond 8 if they didn't have to close the store.

    Andy,
    Sorry can't make it on Tuesday. Most other days I'm okay.

    February 20, 2014

  • Lisa

    Damn! Can't make the time change due to work. Please post if next time can be later.

    February 20, 2014

  • Andy

    Please note time change to 6pm, they close at 8pm.

    February 20, 2014

  • Andy

    Because of the threat of rain, I needed to find an indoor facility and the best one I could find, without a fee, is Sam Ash Music in Clearwater. They had something going on Monday so I rescheduled us to Tuesday. It is close to the Tampa and St Pete bridges, so I hope everyone can still make it. If you can't please update your RSVP. Thanks for hanging in there.

    February 20, 2014

  • Andy

    Sorry for the delay, but I am waiting on another member to confirm if we can use an indoor facility for Monday night. All I have now is an outdoor location (the pool area in my complex) and the forecast says maybe rain. If any member has access to centrally located indoor locations for this or future jams, please let me know.

    February 19, 2014

  • Elaine G.

    Same here. I will be there. Just need to know where at the timing. really ready for it. Elaine

    February 17, 2014

    • Andy

      I had an outdoor location in N St Pete but the long range forecast looks rainy and am working on something indoors. Will post as soon as it's confirmed.

    I work at a church in St. Pete. Could possibly host a meetup. Sunday afternoons work for me.

    February 14, 2014

    I might be able to come up with a location. Let me know if you want me to investigate.

    February 13, 2014

    Hopefully the group will grow to have multiple sessions around town. I will open it up to anyone being able to host one at their home or other venue.

    February 12, 2014

    As to weekends, Sunday afternoons ( 2-7ish) are best for me. I look forward to meeting folks!

    February 12, 2014
