    Suppose non of those titles float your boat and you just want to jam? What then?
    I'll jam with you if you want to rock.

    There are easy songs we can teach and use as a base.
    Me too - I'm hoping I get half an hour this time round to jam in another room - usually I'm stuck organising the main room

    @Bridgehouse yes I'd lurve to bring the archtop, but I'd also like to bring a solid and maybe some toys (FX). Would be willing to bring archtop + SG and no toys to minimise weight, so long as there are lots of overdrives to cascade one into the other! Subject to @TTony being alright with that (once upon a time we thought we might travel together: I could still be up for that even though I initially baulked at such an early start)
    "Working" software has only unobserved bugs. (Parroty Error: Pieces of Nine! Pieces of Nine!)
    Seriously: If you value it, take/fetch it yourself

    R U up for trying a few home-brewed (but favourite) chord progressions? Can send charts ...

    I'm bringing my Helix - you can stack a whole heap of overdrives. Most people will bring some stuff and I'm sure if you ask then someone will bring suitable FX for use ;)

    I certainly would be if you've got thoughts on a bass line progression to go with them - or we can work through them on the day!

    I'll have a pop at vox on Supernova. It sounded OK when I howled it in the car on the way to Woking. I haven't sung live (in front of peep) since 1986 though...


    so about 9 years before it was released then ...impressive!  
    Last set I sung live was Kayleigh into She Sells Sanctuary and finishing with Walking on Sunshine. 

    Better?
    Sorry , I misread your post on my phone that you last sung ‘Supernova in ‘86 ! 
    No offence meant , honest guv!

    by all means send but I can't promise if they need much time/effort to learn.

    Whilst I appreciate all the work that’s going into the weekend in question, can you clarify whether the set list is final or whether there’s going to be some changes or additions.
    BTW - I added Take It Easy in - I hope you'll pick a guitar slot on it
    Sadly, I was on the cusp of taking a rain check because of the song choices on offer  s ... but now Take it Easy has been confirmed ... put me down for rhythm  :)

    However, this is on the proviso that someone else is enthusiastic enough to take up lead and vocals, since this song's a bit pointless if it's just drums, bass and a single guitar.

    Am planning to attend on the Saturday.

    I've also offered to do guitar on that one today. The list just insn't up to date - that's all. I think it'll be too high a register for me to attempt signing (unless we want to do Barry White sings the Eagles), but will have a go when I'm alone and not in danger of ridicule from the wife and kids...

    What other songs WOULD you want to play? I'm sure there's wiggle room to loose one and add another...

    Yeah, there’s always wriggle room as the songs get picked or not and we end up with a couple that fall away

    I'd love to sing Take It Easy if that's still available. 

    Electric guitar and vocals on Boulevard please. 

    Thanks to @McToot for rhythm duties on Boulevard, I think we've got everything we need guitar-wise on that now. We should conflab between ourselves which parts we should play. Exciting.

    @LuttiS @pmbomb and myself have been messaging on "Never Gonna Leave" so @LuttiS will play bass, @pmbomb and myself will play guitar and I'll take vocals as well (as long as no-one else wants sing it).

    @McToot ;

    Am happy if you want to take rhythm on Take it Easy. But as I said earlier, the song needs a lead guitar and vocals as well. And talking of vocals, I note @modellista has agreed to warble* for the assembled hordes.

    * Russian for "sing his heart out"

    Calling out for volunteer to do lead guitar on Take it Easy ....

    Have a go yourself @fandango - get the scale and a few phases right and the rest can be adapted to your ability. That’s what I’ve been doing at the jams, and it has gradually improved my playing and also made me less nervous as you realise you don’t need to play a note perfect version.

    You're right. However it's not the notes that bother me, or being nervous. It's the speed. My fingers just can't place the notes quick enough.  :s

    Something to work on ....

    You don't need to play it note for note. If something is too quick then simplify it. As long as you get the general melody you're looking for, on a song like that it will sound great. That song is all about the general vibe, not virtuosity.

    If you're struggling, spend a little time with one of the other guys beforehand in another room and show them what you've got. Anyone would be more than happy to help you out. It's a very supportive environment.

    You could even just play the melody of the song. Many songs do that. Just look at Smells Like Teen Spirit. The guitar solo is just the vocal line.

    Im drumming on this and its just at the top end of what speed I can currently comfortably play, if you want to slow it down slightly so you can try a solo, Im happy to do so/

    word. grab a couple of the hooks, play in key, start and finish on time, job done! (that's what I do anyway!). the punters are happy regardless. if they want the Eagles, go see the Eagles!

    Tom, just sign yourself up for an electric song or two. There are plenty of places. There are other rooms around as well where people jam on electric.

    So folk can jam without performing and also it's just a case of putting your name down?
