Does the guitar group ever meet?  Not sure.  How many active members do really exist?  Love to be there at your next event.  Thanks!

When is the next get together for the guitar group? Please let me know.

Thank You.  Rich Shames

Hi Richard - im not aware of any formal song list; I think it depends on who shows up and what they feel like. I believe that there could be several jams on, but they will be up to speed, not like the slow jams, which are for people just learning. You will be welcome to observe of course. Do what feels natural- it's all in fun. Hope to see you- no worries

What songs will be played?  Can I come to observe?  Is this different then the 2nd and 4th Thursday slow jam?  Hope to see you!

It starts at 7:00 and I am the greeter so I hope to see you there!

What time is the Bluegrass Jam tomorrow 5/25?  Thanks!

Been reading in Acoustic Guitar about "guide tones" and wonder if that's something I'm already doing naturally. Any guidance?

I'm a lousy student who doesn't have the patience for following a pedantic formula and theory. I.E., fret only the 3rd and 7th or the minor 3rd and flatted seventh. I just open up or augment the chords according to how it feels and what sounds interesting (to me).

On DADGAD & standard tuning: (For Irish music) I like them both!
But sometimes I wonder if I am biting off more than I can chew. Is it too much to try to learn two guitar tunings?

I don't have a picture of myself to put here, but I'll be seeing some of you at the Old Time, Bluegrass, and Swing/Jazz jam sessions. My guitar, by the way, is a 1955 Martin D-18...now if I can just learn to flatpick like some of you then I'll just be so happy! Have fun.

Well, I have some guitars. Nice ones, too. But I don't know if that necessarily makes me a "guitarist."

May 2014 Calendar & News

 April reflections: Brian Conway's concert at the Violin Shop was tremendous. I wanted to thank the Violin Shop for hosting the concert. Fred, Brandon and April made it such a nice atmosphere and the sound was perfect! I love listening to Brian's CD's but After seeing a live concert, I realized that he is truly one of the best Irish fiddlers there is in the world! He plays so flawlessly with great technique so musically. I liked it that he talks to…See More
