    Did we manage to incorporate the shower break into the schedule? 

    Can't image mountains of bags needed, would said bags fit in minibus/transport for check in after Saturday studio time?

    72h worth of shower in 1 spray that, he just needs a quick squirt before he leaves on Saturday morning and he's good for the weekend :)

    What's the point? Beer and junk food in the evening mean it's paint stripper farts by morning regardless, let's face it.

    Sunday's session is all in solo booths, right?

    I'm not on the pull (as a married man) but I'm having a shower first!

    @darthed1981 I've been mistaken for a lady twice in recent years. I'm thinking a bit of a grungey look might be necessary protection lest those rough northern types try to do unmentionable things to me

    As well as unmentionable, there'll be unintelligible things. They speak proper funny round here!

    I recommend a spare pair of pants in your gig bag (fnarr) - just in case the Hudders Grannies rip yours off in a post gig ageing sex pest frenzy of knob n balls action.

    Thought the rule for pulling out was a 15 page powerpoint presentation that everyone then has to agree to?

    Shame though :/

    Having spent the week listening to the southern jam recordings its reminded me again what an amazing day I had.  I can't make the party but have followed the thread and it seems that following last weekend's idiot of the week winner and the struggle to fill places that @TTony and @Bridgehouse are feeling like they are puttng in blood sweat and tears on others behalfs to make the events and it may be too much for them.

    The southern jam was amazing, held together and organised by the two of them with @poopot who has also spent his week organising the tracks since, almost losing an eye in the process!.

    It may be that the numbers were slow in agreeing for the party due to holiday season or it may seem too big for people who lack confidence or a million other reasons but please don't lose faith with putting these things together.  I will be at any southern jams I can get to or midlands or anywhere I can get to and back in a day.  I think having now seen the before during and after that participants may have to get more involved with helping to carry some load and we may have to pay a bit more per head as a very wise accountant once told me that if you charge nothing for something people will think it will be worth nothing.

    But a massive thanks for putting this stuff on and please keep em coming.

    I was just looking at the Soundcloud playlist from the January Jam - and was delighted to see the song I played on had been listened to 46 times.

    It then occurred to me that I’ve probably listened to it 45 times....

    Ive listened to all the jam recordings - the ones I played on for feedback on how it sounded, the others to hear how others have approached the song (especially the solos) , and to see if I’d want to play that at future songs. I learnt Come Together on guitar (rhythm and lead) and vocals as I loved the Hudds version.

    I'm working on my "Champagne Supernova" a bit, will be able to play all the little riffs and fills because someone else is singing!

    Any experts on Ace of Spades?  I was looking at some tab (I know tab is evil etc) and was wondering if rhythm on that track can be the power chords (so I'll bring my "metal" guitar tuned to drop D) or if it is considered the riff?

    I've done this as well. I've not been happy with my lead playing for a while. My problem is that I don't know a local great lead player. So listening to the jams gives me things to work on, especially hearing others play a song  I've just played.

    Second shout out to anyone with some Graphic Design skills? 

    The club would like a poster and flier to put out advertising our mini gig. 

    Pretty please?

    To @slacker and @markblagdon do you have "idols" you are working towards, or looking to find your own lead playing styles as you go? 

    I'm just curious, myself, there are certain players I'd like to make music like (Bernard Butler, Graham Coxon, James Dean Bradfield, Johnny Marr, Johnny Greenwood, Noel Gallagher etc,) but I always find myself looking at their lead lines tabbed out and noodling around them, to probably quite unimpressive effect!

    It's like there is a box, and you are gradually trying to unlock the box, you get one catch loose then keep trying the same thing on the other catches and they get a bit loose, but others dont budge at all!

    very succinctly put. For me the shreddy sweep picking catch is seized solid. At quad I tried to get away from slide guitar, at water rats I embraced it. 

    The other thing I embraced was that I'm a jack of all trades so I tried some vocals this time.

    're idols its anyone whose competent but not out there, so jimi is not an influence even though I thought his Monterey gig video one of the best live performances ever by anyone.

    It's about developing as a musician and I think that you and Mark are very useful in any band because you can sing and play more than root position chords.you could front a 3 piece or add a keyboard or another guitar.

    Far from an expert on Ace of Spades, but the blagger's version I learnt for home amusement is a mixture of fills and power chords/barres but focussing on the low three strings.

    Tab isn't evil at all. When you've got limited time it's a good starting point. What I normally do is find two or three tabs that have different takes on a song (annoying when you just find the same one in 10 different sites!) and then play along with that whilst also listening to the song. Doing that often means then making minor adjustments (I hesitate to say corrections, but my ears aren't hearing what the tab person heard ) to get something that sounds right to me.

    For example, for the acoustic part to ITGWO I've nicked the chords from online for speed, but decided to play some bits of it a bit differently (adding in the bass notes on the Am section) and taking out some random unnecessary/wrong bits from the chorus.  It means I can now do what I need to for ITGWO after a couple of runs through, rather than spending all damn week listening to it, when I don't have time (and I know transcribing it for myself would make me better, but … go hybrid, that's what I say )

    Edit: and for my money, you don't need to worry about drop-D for Ace of Spades, either. Unless you're playing it in a weird key.
