Emerging From Winter's Grasp!
On this day: 1957 - Johnny Cash made his first network TV appearance, on CBS' "Jackie Gleason Show." ; 1976 - The Beatles turned down an offer of $30 million to play together again on the same stage; 1981 - Styx released the album "Paradise Theater." BRING: Acoustic guitar (or mandolin, ukulele, banjo, or just your voice), music stand, tuner, capo, extra strings (just in case), and 12-15 copies of lyrics/chords sheets for 2 songs of your choice. All participants are required to bring guitar tabs for 2 songs; not sure how use, our message board to ask for help. 7:00PM-ish - We try to have the room open for early arrivals. 7:30 - 9:15PM - Our usual group play. Choose songs with simpler chords that will be fairly easy for the group to play (and won't require a lot explanation). Otherwise, your songs - your choice. 9:15 - 9:30PM - Time for anyone who wishes to perform a song for the group. You don't have to be a pro or a great singer. If you are working on a song (original or cover) and want to try it out, here's your chance. Strictly voluntary but it's a great low-key, supportive environment for the experienced and novice to perform. 9:30 - 10:30PM - After we pack up our gear and straighten up the room, those interested can adjourn to Larchmont Tavern a few doors down for some socializing.

Needs a location


What we're about

A home for all acoustic players, singers, and people who like to play unplugged in general. While all levels are welcome, we are an Intermediate to Advanced group.

We currently have two main alternating Meetups:

- One is a "Chord jam" where we all play and sing the same song at once, and the experts get a chance to solo.

- The other is a "Performance Night" where we each take turns playing a song solo or with a friend. These are usually blues, rags, bluegrass, country or also folk/modern, depending.

While the name says "guitar", this group is acoustic in general. There's always room for bass, mandolin, harmonica, tambourine/shakers, keyboards, and so on. Also singers are always welcomed even if you don't play an instrument!

Please check the "Learn more about this Meetup Group" link just below for more details and we hope to see you soon!
