    OK, trying to link from imgur:-



    This is what Ive got so far - let me know of additions, omissions or changes. We can confirm which songs are going to the final list once we've got the drum, bass and vocal slots filled.  

    I'll do bass on basket case, but @Alnico doesn't seem to want any bass on fallen in love with... (otherwise I could do that too..)
    Wierd, Or did he think you were suggesting he played bass as well - sort of one man band stylee....
    That's exactly what He thought !!!

    @bridgehouse of course I want YOU playing Bass.
    The way you worded it I thought you meant me.

    Sorry.
    I have been a bit out of tune with life the last couple of weeks so my apologies for not reading the question properly.

    Yes, please play bass on the Buzzcocks track.

    Also, Can you put me in as Rhythm Guitar on Basket Case as well as vocals.

    Just a thought, but should / could there be one song that is developed during the day so everyone plays at the end - or is that a bit meh?

    Anything by The Quo should be easy

  • I'm having a mini crisis. I think the last song I played through in full was I'm Eighteen by Alice Cooper, roughly 3 months ago. Struggling to think of a song to play or sing as my rhythm playing seems shot to bits which is what endless noodling has done to me. Time to knuckle down.....   
    Nobody is guaranteed tomorrow.....

    Hi @spark 240 What Quo songs were you thinking. it perhaps needs to have some layers to get as many involved as possible... If someone is up for some slide and those more experienced up for the coaching, we could try something like Freebird maybe???

    Nothing in particular, just think they are dead easy, I recall me a my mates all doing Caroline, rocking all over, down down...etc....I'm not fussed just a thought..

    Happy to have a go at some Lizzy someday also.

    I also suggested Take Me Out, which hasn't made the list yet.

  • This is still, for me, as much about learning from those more experienced, so happy to have a go at some Quo and Take Me Out to improve technique.

    Yeah I don't think we're planning to reproduce the records as such!
    Rockin' all over the world is a great feel-good song.  I remember them doing it at Knebworth about <mumble> years ago. (1990 actually). The festival ended in style with David Gilmore standing on the edge of the stage playing in the rain.

  • How about "Champagne Supernova" by Oasis?

    Several advantages of it...

    1.  It is quite easy to play.
    2.  It has about ten tracks of guitar on it for most of it's length, so you can get away with three or even four guitars.
    3.  The solo provides great opportunities for people to do a bit of pentatonic jamming.

    Just a thought, it's gone a bit quiet in here and thought I'd jump in!

    Also - if we are tuning down a semitone for "Basket Case" - how about a Suede track?  I can't think of any that are easy to play well unfortunately though...

    'Take me out' isn't an easy song to pull off in a Jam.
    That stompy feel it's got isn't easy to replicate and there's a lot going on in that song.

    It also needs singing with a ton of theatrics in the vocal or it'll just sound like an X Factor Fail.

    Not trying to knock the song, as it goes it's not a bad song but it's not one I'd attempt unrehearsed with a thrown together Jam session band.

    'Champagne Supernova' isn't a bad song to try.
    Good points made about it too Ed.

    I'd be up for Champagne Supernova, great chords for wigging out over - I'd even volunteer to sing it if needed... been a while since I have and all that, but...

    I don't think all the Suede stuff was down a semitone in the early days. This is pretty simple to play, as Bernie will show you:

    Substitute "Anyone" for "Everyone".

    That sounds awesome.

  • Quick Update

    Attendees - think we can cope with this many - assume they're will be a few drop outs before the event.

    Can people confirm what they play/ will bring equipment wise. We have two rooms:-

    Carter room - 33m^2 - main song room

    Blackstar room 26 m^2 - quieter stuff

    Song List - I think proposals will get confirmed when we have a singer and drummer sorted for each (I need a singer and drummer for my two proposed songs!!). Otherwise on the possible list until we get those signed up, may have missed a few - its difficult to tell if people are definitely wanting to play something or just throwing suggestions out for others to comment on.

    Let me know what Ive missed either "song proposed" or "signed up for" wise.

    In terms of equipment - quite happy to drag the Hot Rod Deluxe down and the M13. The M13 could be useful as its a bonehead simple piece of kit to get lots of different sounds out of - plus has a tuner in it.

    @markblagdon
    Put me down as definitely going.

    I've made more progress in one week than I thought I would in one month.
    I've only picked up the guitar a few times and I've got the flat I've been left in, to completely renovate, change and make my own and I can't really set anything up until it's all done,......but I'm on my way back to my feet now.

    I'll do my best to get in shape for December and whatever happens, I'll definitely be there for this one, no matter how I feel.
    If I can remember how to play by then it'll be a little better / worse, depending on how the stars align that day.

    Oh, and the 4 songs I'm down for are easily enough for me.

    I'll happily jump in and help others but without trying to over face myself, those 4 will do just fine.

  • Depending on what others bring I'll bring my Katana 50 along.  Should be plenty loud enough for the volumes we reached at the Leicester jam, and by all accounts can get over a drummer, be fun to try, never gets off the half watt setting at home.

    Happy to noodle along or play chords on Champagne Supernova, there are two solos hidden away in the solo bit, the first bit which is Noel and a second bit Paul Weller played that is buried in overdubs.

    Can easily extend that to as many bars as people like to jam over if we need to.

    Ha- yes I'm familiar with that video, what's the betting Brett does NOT remember what he was doing in 1992?!

    I actually find that quite inspirational, love Bernard.

    I'd play Why Does It Always Rain on Me? with you, give the acoustic amp bit of my Katana a try!

    I'd be happy to strum a bit to any of those.  At lease the first two.  Rain on me might be a bit more tricky.
