theFretBoard Jam - goes South - 2nd Jun 2018 **RESERVE LIST OPEN**

**FULL** as of  Weds 2nd Feb. 
Subject to the last couple of people confirming (with payment), the attendee list is now FULL.
However, some people invariably have to drop out between now and the actual event due to all sorts of reasons, so any further "want-to-comes" will be added to the reserve list and then contacted in turn if anyone does have to drop out before the event.
I'd guess that at least the first 5 reserves will end up getting a place, and quite possibly a few more.




With thanks to @poopot and @bridgehouse, there's going to be another FretBoard jam, meet-up, chat'n'stuff session.

Saturday 2nd Jun 2018, 11ish until 5ish.
Water Rat studios  in Woking

We'll have the use of 3 or 4 separate rooms, so plenty of time and space for;
  • the setlist performers - which can all be recorded in studio standard quality
  • a more free form jam / practice area
  • a quiet chat & chill area
We'll be aiming for the same sort of approach that worked so well at the Quad/Leicester, Northampton and Huddersfield/Sasquatch sessions.  

That means;
  • all ability levels welcomed, and encouraged, to get up and play
  • but "on-stage" playing isn't the only  purpose of the day
  • a pre-agreed setlist, with attendees signing up to play whichever part they prefer on each song
  • attendees get to influence the setlist, although organisers say is final (because drummer/bassist/vox need to be sorted too)
  • option to repeat some songs if they're popular so that everyone who wants to, gets to play

The other sessions have been  very well received by those attending, and will be repeated later this year.  

(Actually, there may be a rather special event in late summer - but more on that in another post, on another day  )

There are 25 spaces open for this.  

Cost for The Southern Jam will be £15/hd.  Doesn't seem bad for 6 hours across 3-4 rooms in a pro level studio  with the option of some  proper recordings done too.  Payment is requested when you say "I'm in" (or equivalent) as we need to pay the studios.  

I'll;
  • Add a starting setlist, and update as we firm it up in the next  post on this thread.
  • Maintain an attendee list, and update that in the following post on this thread.  
  • As the attendee list gets filled up, I'll add a reserve list. 
If someone needs to drop out after they've confirmed and paid, they'll be refunded as long as a reserve steps in (and pays).

    This is a proposed "core" setlist, starter-for-10.

    Allright now Free
    Beat it Michael Jackson
    Call me the breeze JJ Cale
    Champagne supernova Oasis
    Comfortably numb Pink Floyd
    Fire Jimi Hendrix
    Fortunate son CCR
    Learning to fly Tom Petty
    Purple rain Prince
    Tush ZZ Top
    White room Cream

    Everyone who signs up to attend - please suggest a couple of tracks that you think would be suitable.    We've found that simpler generally work better, particularly since everything will be played no-rehearsal!

    We'll have a max of 20-odd songs during the day, so  it won't be possible to include all suggestions, but if everyone chucks in a couple of options, we'll try to get a decent spread of styles through the setlist.

    :)

    In due course we'll put have the confirmed list, and people can then volunteer for the various parts that they want to play on each song.  Quite possible to repeat popular songs so that everyone gets to play.

    I will do my usual job of running the Jams and other playing etc on the day, and will no doubt be involved in the pre-Jam setup as well,

    I don’t have quite as much time to do the pre-organising on this one, as I suspect a couple of other events this year will be taking up my time ;)

  • As there are fewer spaces for this one I'm going to hang back for now...as a distinctly northern jammer.. But I'll keep an eye and if it looks like there might be space later on I'll pounce!

    Would love to do bass again on Pretty Vacant - an opportunity to iron out those fckups I made last Saturday. Alas however, I’ll be in on the dog’s holiday, motorhoming in Scotland starting 02/06 - unless I change the itinerary. Hmmmmm.

    Done
    :)

    All the other "I'm ins" will will appear on the confirmed list as soon as my PP confirms payment - just so that it all stays neat & tidy and I don't end up over-booking or whatever.

    PPG please to thefretboard@outlook.com

    ALSO

    Everyone who signs up - please chuck in a couple of suggestions for the song list (see second post in this thread).

    Yes, that venue looks great!

    Have paid

    Can I suggest  Fire - Hendrix, that had a great groove at Hudds, isn’t too complex and I want to learn the solo bits (but does need a good drummer)

    Fire is in the core setlist. Would be rude not to.

    We knew that you were going to suggest it, so put it in already.

    Oh yeah! I must read all the thread before I despirately try to bagsy a place next time  ;)

    Can I request “Hard to Handle” then - I know that on guitar and drums, but need to finess them both and get the solo perfected.

    Are you trying to fix a core set list so you don’t need to learn any new songs  ;)

    Not at all.

    Well, not entirely.
    ;)

    It's also about have a few in the set that we know work well and that people can play (or learn) reasonably easily.  A large part of these sessions is to give those who are less experienced/confident an opportunity to get up and play in (friendly) public,  and those songs seem to have helped that happen in previous sessions.

    Yeah, I understand, having learnt to drum on 10 songs for the Northampton Jam , I can see the benefit in finessing them rather than start from scratch each time.

    The three songs I drummed on in Hudds were better as I’d played them in Northampton.

    Will start learning the core songs in case Im needed to bang stuff.

    Apparently there’s a version of Fortunate Son with a guitar solo in it it, by Joe Lynn Turner, but I can’t find it on Spotify.
