    Yep I'm in - happy to sing/play Champagne Supernova, help out on Comfy with @Alnico  and I'll have a think about other tracks.

    Also I'm happy to drag the Hot Rod Deluxe and M13 down for everyone to use.
    Never Ever Bloody Anything Ever.

    Just a quick reminder to @markblagdon, @bridgehouse, @Octatonic, @Flink_Poyd, @Alnico, @TTBZ, @mike_l
    @spark240, @strumjoughlamps, @Pablo, @aord43, @darthed1981, @TADodger, @impman, @adampeter, @thorpyfx

    Let us know if you are still interested in the Jam on Dec 3rd, and what instruments you want to play on what songs.

    Im planning 3 x 30 mins slots of proper songs mixed with 3x30 min sets of jam along songs. I will probably have to play drums (unless we have other volunteers) so will need some notice to get the songs structure learnt.


    Yes mate still in....will advise on songs asap

    Yes, I'm very much still in. I've been contemplating, if not adequately practicing,  Ever fallen in love and Basket case, for the 'proper' songs.

    But, can i suggest that some of us non gigging people might like a pre 'proper' song session to rehearse with the more experienced in the group to actually learn something, or, possibly a rehearsed group song at some point in the day perhaps..
    • What would help is if we get an idea of the experience level of who's going - as per the Leicester Jam? That way we could work out who from the experienced camp, could do what.
    • It's fine if we don't have loads of songs. There's plenty of room for learning AND then jamming what we've learnt but I have a feeling there are enough songs out there to cope.
    • If Octatonic isn't going and we only have one experienced Drummer so far, we should be looking for another one ASAP because, without one, it will sound terrible. Strummy or not. 
    • Who's doing lyrics and song sheets or are we all doing our own?
    • Do we have keys this time?
    • How many vocalists/backing vocalists do we have?
    • Does the studio provide Mics as well as stands or only part of that? Same question about drums, what's provided?
    • What kit are we bringing, mainly thinking about backline here? There's no point having 25 big valve amps turn up when we only need 4 BUT that said we do want people to bring *some* variation of nice amps so if we make this a thing like we did for Leicester we can at least know roughly what we're getting.

    There'll be more to ask, more to think about and more to do but answers to that lot and the info therein will give @markblagdon , @TTony , @Bridgehouse and I something to get stuck into.

    Also noted that @TTony is organising the song sheet, which is awesome.

    These things always work best when there's general enthusiasm all 'round from everyone so let's keep this simmering and make it the best we can?

    We MUST find a backup drummer ASAP !!!
    It's a real shame James isn't about but maybe if someone can reach him, he'd do it? Worth asking?

    I'm down for 4 Songs

    Ever Fallen in Love - Guitar
    Basket Case - Guitar and Vocals
    Jolene (Ray Lamontagne) - Guitar and Vocals
    Comfortably Numb - Guitar and RW Vocals (DG Vocal by @impmann )

    I *Think* that's right but happy to wiggle if needed.

     @markblagdon ......that's almost 30 minutes there.
    I don't mind or care if you want to chop that up or run it as a 30-minute slot, I'm happy with either. In reality, I would do that in one go anyway and on stage, the equipment changes in between songs would have to be coped with anyway so it's no big deal for me. Everything is saved on patches on the GT100 so a change without swapping guitar - seconds. A change WITH swapping the guitar - maybe 60 seconds inc tuning.

    I'm bringing my Pro Strat, Ibanez UV777BK (7 String), My Boss GT100 and I'm looking for a clean valve amp to plug into when I get there.

    Good points there @Alnico .

    Id put myself as maybe BEG+ if we use the same system as Leicester.  I've not been playing much recently.

    I'll bring my Katana but it's more for practise than backline if people are bringing big sexy valve jobs!

  • Thank for the updates all- its good to hear there’s a keen core who’ll help make this a success.

    There is drum kit (no cymbals- I’ll bring those), mics and bass amps provided. We just need to bring guitars and amps.

    Ive been PMd by octatonic, and he’s not coming, so we need another drummer if possible - I think @strumjoughlamps plays, but he’s not confirmed if he wants to yet . I’ve asked my drum tutor if he knows anyone, but no ones come forward yet.

    There’s no keyboard player yet-does anyone know one?

    I’ve been tracking people’s responses on kit,songs and experience in a googlesheet, I’m happy to let people have access to it, otherwise I’ve been posting images showing status on here. @ttony  Is there a way to embed tables for listing songs, attendees, etc, or is a link to an imgur image the only way?

    Agreed here, a quick run through rather than everyone jumping in could help a big chunk.

    @horse - interested in playing keys on a more informal jam session? I reckon probably more like 4 or 5 tunes this time and a lot more informal?

    Now. A song list? I reckon me and @Alnico could kickstart that.

    Typical bloody guitarist.

    All us bassists look the same to you, eh @Alnico?

    The easiest way (for you) is the embedded image.

    I can use my admin powers to do that without needing to use imgur though, which makes it a bit quicker / easier.  Thats what I was going to use post #2 for - keep it all easy to find in the thread.

  • just looked at postcode, Leicester side of Northampton and pretty much one road so should be not too bad..

    what time is it from-to?

    I can manage to drum, I quite easily now one after the other get through Under Pressure, Eye of the Tiger and Jump, but I would struggle but then would also be happy to help if I could.

    I'm not going to be around that weekend I'm afraid mate. Tunes mentioned sound less keyboardy anyhow I reckon, so enjoy the extra room in the frequency range :-)

    I *Thought* that you meant you and me "Kickstart" the list like we did last time and I *meant* that Tony collates that into one of those super-dooper-list-things, like he did last time.

    I'm still in. Is there any interest in playing any of these?

    Since You've Been Gone
    More Than A Feeling
    I Believe In A Thing Called Love
    Alive

    I'd put myself as a beginner. The rhythm parts of the above should be ok. I can probably manage the lead on the first three, bit the Alive solo would be out of reach,

    Cool, cheers Mark. Just so we're clear, we're both talking abut the Pearl Jam song, right?

    Assuming we are, do we need to wait for drums/bass/vocals to be sorted (I can't sing)? Or shall we PM each other and divvy up the parts and see what happens?

    Oh, and thanks for the kind words, but I'm not sure if playing with me will be an honour!  ;)
