  • Thanks to all for a fantastic day today was a lot of fun and great to be there learning, playing and being in such a supportive environment.

    Great to put faces to names and to meet such a lovely bunch of people!

    Yay...it happened! As well as echoing the thanks to the organisers and "house band" (well done guys, that was excellent work!) I would like to thank those who helped me practice on the day and those who I played with.
    Cheers all.  Brilliant day.

  • Great day.  Good to catch up with those I've met before, and to meet those I haven't.  

    Everyone saw play did really well, from the experienced to the anxious.  Hope everyone else got something from the day.

    Thanks to all those involved in the organisation, including those not present.

  • @octatonic was blooming awesome, twas watching him that made me realise I want to spend more time and effort drumming..

    and I have forgot his name, playing the PRS in the jam room, really enjoyed his calm and methodical persona.

    was great putting more faces to usernames.. and I am chuffed to bits I got up and sang Pretty Vacant
    I thought your rendition of Pretty Vacant was bloody marvellous! Well done

    Great day! Well done to everyone that took part, and especially those that organised the day.

    Was good to meet you all, and finally put some faces to names. Was disappointed in my personal performance, but at the same time was inspired by some truly great players that have shown me today what time, patience and a hell of a lot of practice can help me achieve.
    I hope to be able to come to many more jam days.
    My wife looked at my t-shirt and just went 'oh...right' :) 

    Thanks again everyone.

  • Should we let these threads sink and start a new "post jam" thread for the photos/vids/general congratulations to all for a great day?

    Just an idea to make it easier for everyone to view it rather than hunting in these mammoth threads.

    That's quite a good idea, actually. 

    @TTony - I'll start a post Jam thread and you can let the others sink so @ThorpyFX 's post gets some proper air time

    Don't put so much pressure on yourself Nick, you did absolutely fine mate and it's a difficult thing to do! I'm absolutely certain I sounded fairly horrendous front of house both playing and singing and definitely made plenty of mistakes despite only doing relatively simple rhythm parts. Absolutely loved the experience though, can't wait to get better and do it again!

    Thanks for the guitar stand and was great to meet you and so many other genuinely nice people. Fab day!

    Nobody should feel disappointed - the audience loved it.

  • I can't only echo the comments of the other 'inexperienced jammers' I had a blast - thanks all!!

  • I'm sitting here in my campsite in Northumberland reading about you guys having an amazing time. I'm also having an awesome time looking in one of the only Dark Skies areas of England but I'm slightly jealous of you all.

    Bring on the Northern jam!

    After much consideration, I'm bringing the Tele partcaster fitted with a set of @Alegree Cirrostratus pickups - I'm guessing few folks will have heard Alex's pickups yet and they are great IMHO.

    I *could* (if there is space in the car) bring the Jazzmaster (GSPBases body, paint by Rich, Mascis neck, Mojo pickups, Mastery bridge/trem) if there is any interest to anyone who'd like to have a play around with an offset.

    Let me know... :-)
    Hope they went down well :)
    Thanks for the representation.

    Sadly at last minute, the Tele stayed home due to bad rattles after changing the strings and no time to sort...

    Nah, we have him tramodol..

    It was actually more likely that we didn't have to stop and restart many songs at all... in fact, I was staggered by the quality right across the board. Some songs could have been gigged as-was and would have been judged to be perfectly acceptable in most scenarios..

    The version of Comfortably - at the end of the day when everyone was exhausted - was particularly stunning, IMHO.

    That and the early play of Foxy Lady, @bigjon bought the energy to the frontman role
    Nobody is guaranteed tomorrow.....

    I'm gutted I missed it in the end, unavoidable sadly, but it seems like it was a great success.
    Thanks to all those who put the time in, @Bridgehouse I'm particular.

    Videos..?

    aord43 said:
    Not sure who's responsible for the video but, per pre-jam discussion regarding permission/veto, I am fine with video of my performances being released, if the others are OK with it. That's Mustang Sally #2 and Sunshine of Your Love #2.
    @digitalscream - I believe his intention is to chop the video up and distribute to those playing, who can then choose to keep, destroy etc. 

    @digitalscream - how about we (as in, mainly you)

    1. Chop the video up into the individual songs
    2. Sync the sound
    3. Upload to our YT channel in private mode
    4. Create a new - temp - section here, accessible only to those who played on any of the tracks
    5. Publish a link to the tracks in that section (thread per song perhaps)
    6. Collate the release approvals in each thread
    7. Release to the wide open world
    If you're happy doing 1, 2 & 3, I'll deal with 4, 5, 6 & 7

    ??
    Sounds like a good plan.

    Fair warning to everyone - I've got 32GB of video and 8GB of audio to go through, and I'm decorating the lounge this week. It might be a week or two before it's all ready to go.

    I'll probably end up tweaking the audio a reasonable amount too (probably just compression and EQ), but I'll also keep an ear out for any amusing/embarrassing conversations held near the mics... ;)

  • @TTony - I think this thread can sink now (sob!) as we have the other chat sticky thread for the photos and vids..

    Don't worry folks, there will be plenty more sticky threads about upcoming jams in the future ;)
