I started this night to give people the opportunity to get together and have fun playing some great tunes. More often than not, people get into playing an instrument but then don’t have the chance or the confidence to become part of something bigger. This is a real shame – part of the joy of playing music is in the shared experience.
The session is very relaxed. I hand out lyric and chord sheets which you can keep. We have a quick chat about how to play the song and then have a go. Sometimes it goes better than others, sometimes we play them twice, then we move on to the next one. We generally get through 12 to 15 tunes a session and I always try to include a couple of new ones.
All standards welcome from beginners to pros. It doesn’t matter if you have been playing for years or have just learnt your first three chords. It’s great practice and a different experience to playing at home on your own!
