Proper Jamming

This day course is about jamming together – properly!

Jam nights can be loud and chaotic but generally good fun. Let’s retain the fun element but make it sound great. Learn how to play together in time, allow all players to be heard, count in with confidence, assign different parts, etc. and making a glorious sound that both lifts the spirit and gives you a tool bag to apply to Jams, Open Mic nights or general get-togethers.

What we’ll be covering?

This course will be a day of:

  • Covering some classic songs and delving into ad hoc compositions.
  • Getting players to play together and create some great sounds.
  • Offering opportunities for players to sing, lead a song or take a solo.

The objectives are:

  • To have fun learning some classic songs and how to create a great sound rather than just a noisy one.
  • Incorporate all players with their own parts (acoustic and electric).
  • Explore rhythm, chord choices, the use of silence, listening to others, singing and much more.
  • Provide opportunities for soloing.

Bring along your own songs and we’ll pick and mix with the song list we have lined up.

 

Who’s this course suitable for?

This course is aimed at the Late Beginner to Intermediate levels of acoustic, electric  guitarists and bass players.

The tutor will also offer advice about singing as well and guide bass players. If we have trombones, horns, harmonicas, etc. then these guys will be left to their own devices and we’ll rely on them being able to keep up!

The course isn’t really for raw beginners; that said, most players will pick up some real nuggets from this day.

 

Materials

We’d like to get the group’s input on songs and lead sheets but we’ll have a bunch of classic song lead sheets to hand out or use via a projector. You’ll get these PDFs as we go through the day.

BTW, we recently ran a Jam Essential online course – it covered all the basics you should know or have been exposed to; email for detail if interested.

If anyone wants some video snippets taken during the day we’ll make these available to the group afterwards.

 

Remember

Unlike our online sessions these Day-Only courses can only accommodate limited group numbers – book early to avoid disappointment.

There’s fantastic B&B and dinners at the venue (other places are available in the area as well !). Get in touch directly with the venue once you’ve received the Joining Instructions.
