Hi all,
   Eureka, I feel like Sir Isaac Newton being hit by the falling apple. “John Henry” is the song that is played with no chord changes and only a few flatted and raised notes for that bluesy flavor. This song should be played early in our set because of its symmetry and simplicity. I can start it off but can someone else bring the words? Like Jerry Ford, I can’t sing and pick at the same time and due to a memory problem, I frequently fine myself in the middle of a lyric  or thought and my mind...............

    For all you banjo fanatics out there, Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn will be featured in a FREE concert at Castle Clinton on Thursday May 29th at 7 PM.
Pick up tickets starting at 5 PM.  Check out web site for more details and other summer events at

See you on the 9th.

Subject: [banjo-56] New Meeting: Bluegrass Slow Jam

Announcing a new meeting for NYC BLUEGRASS SLOW JAM (for Adv beginners and Int players)!

What: Bluegrass Slow Jam

When: Monday, June 9, 7:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Who should come: You should attend this meetup if you play: banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro or bass.   Singers welcome.  This is a SLOW JAM -- meant for advanced beginning and intermediate players.

Why: If you're a fairly new player and really want to play with other people, this is the meetup for you.   Most of the folks that are part of this meetup are new to jamming and it is very exciting to be playing in a group for the first time.

Meeting Description: This Meetup happens EVERY SECOND and FOURTH MONDAY OF THE MONTH

For the next meeting, think about learning some or all of these songs:

Banjo in the Hollow
Cripple Creek
Cluck Old Hen
Worried Man Blues
John Hardy
Wildwood Flower
Skip to my Lou
Will the Circle Be Unbroken
Old Joe Clark
Banjo in the Hollow
This Little Light of Mine
Hot Corn Cold Corn
Cumberland Gap
Goin' down that Road Feeling Bad
Don't this Road Look Rough and Rocky
Litttle Darlin' Pal of Mind
Soldier's Joy
Long Black Veil
Angel Band

If you have other songs that you want to share, make sure they're simple.  And it would be icing on the cake if you could photocopy the song with the chords and pass it out to others in the group.   We started at 4 people for the first meeting, then went to six for the second meeting and then went to 22 for the fourth meeting.  Lots of people have been inquiring about this meetup -- a big happy surprise to me.    This is the only public slow jam in NYC!
