Following the pattern of our last blues jam, we will sign up on a list of popular blues tunes. The spreadsheet is open and editable to all (as long as you have Google Sheets), and here is the link: CLICK HERE
For those folks who are used to leading a set, We'd like to ask you to still step up and be "Song Leaders", and for those newer members and musicians who might just be finding their chops, please don't feel intimidated to sign up for a song or two, or four.... you won't be pressured to play a Stevie Ray solo or a blistering harp or keyboard lead if you're not there yet! But you can't get better if you don't play!
Since this is an experiment, PLEASE OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING ETIQUETTE:
1) Please limit yourself to 4 (FOUR) songs to begin with - there may be the opportunity to play more if space on the spreadsheet allows as we get closer to the jam;
2) Please don't "stack the deck" by putting your usual bandmates on all of your songs - there's also a social aspect to this to promote interaction between people who don't often get to play together.
3) PLEASE DO NOT ERASE ANYONE'S NAME WHO HAS SIGNED UP FOR A SONG YOU WANTED TO PLAY - if they were there first, let it be (Can't believew we even need to say that, but nothing surprises us anymore! LOL!)
4) Don't take your self so seriously -- HAVE FUN! That is the point, right? :)
We'll shoot out another email a few days before the event, and if there are any spots on any of the songs that need to be filled, FIRST COME FIRST SERVED!! (Within reason of course, Mr. Clapton...)
At the risk of being inundated.... please let me know if you have any questions!
