GUITAR CLUB
« on: December 10, 2016, 01:47:22 PM »
Hi Folks, for sometime the idea of a guitar club has been floating around my addled brain. I imagine a place where players from beginners onwards can get together in a nice atmosphere, drink a beer or two and talk about guitar stuff. There would be a couple of amps and guitars available so you could show off your latest licks, show us your guitars and pedals etc. Maybe an occasional masterclass from some of our gifted local players. Perhaps a couple of folks could have a short jam together.

Well, this has now become a reality. I've found a local pub that will let me have their very nice upstairs room for no cost. I've started to generate interest on Facebook. I'm looking at starting in the new year and doing it on alternate Tuesdays from 7pm to 10pm.

What do you guys think ? I would very much appreciate your thoughts and suggestions about how to run this thing, the sort of content you would like to see etc.

For anyone local I'm based in Brighton, East Sx.

Awesome!

Unfortunately, I am a few thousand miles away. :(

Same here.  I think it's a great idea.  I've had some of the NY BK'ers round the house for beers and guitars in the past, but this sounds great in a pub. 
So many pickups, so little time

That does sound like a really good idea. I'm London based, but Brighton isn't too far. I could perhaps visit sometimes.

Nice one gwEM. I'm getting some positive responses but it's early days and most people seem to be infected with pre-Christmas apathy i.e. 'Let's get Christmas out of the way'. I think most people actually dread Christmas and are vibrating with the tension of thinking about family get-togethers, work parties, travel (no trains in the South East) and the horrendous cost  of the whole, sorry exercise.

I love playing guitar so much but sadly, now I just don't have time for it at all because I am a student and all the time I have I need to spend on writing countless assignments. At least I can use studymoose.com from time to time, it makes things much easier.
