A core group of musicians (the “Set List” Band) has been working on tunes from a regular monthly song list. Each song practice is about playing and teaching jam session. Here, you can develop the art of soloing, as well as “call and response,” and extended jam improvisation.
Organizer Paul W inspires the creative energies for the group. Mr. Sid is the Song-leader that keeps our songs on track. None of the musicians play solos or vocals louder then anyone one else. We practice each song several times to tighten our group harmony and practice improvisation skills.
NOTE: YOU MUST BE ABLE TO PLAY THE MELODY FOR ALL THE WARM-UP SONGS ON OUR LIST TO ATTEND!
This Jam Session is a good fit for musicians with at least one year of jam session experience (three years experience would make the extended solos easier for you to play). *
Format: We will practice our blues and rock songs at least two times each. We will also work on improvisation techniques… to enhance the ability of each musician to listen to the other players. (1) Nail the melody (2) Tighten up the group sound. (3) Follow the drummer (4) look for signals from other players (5) Singer or Song-leader selects the solos and the call & response (6) add riffs & musical phrases (7) Drummer raises and lowers the volume to highlight each instrument.
