"Acoustic Song Circle" this Sunday afternoon in Fort Worth

"Acoustic Song Circle" at The Corporate Image, this Sunday at 2:00.  5418 Brentwood Stair Road in Fort Worth.  Bring your guitar and 3 chords, or just show up and listen and drink a few.  It's a fun time!

(The gent who is 2nd from the right in the gray T-shirt is our infamous Dr. Ralph.  Dr. Ralph can play his Democrat rear end off, BTW.) 

Here's how it works.  Somebody starts a song.  The people who know the song play along with whoever is taking the lead on it.  The people who DON'T know the song play along with whoever is taking the lead on it.  Sometimes harmonicas are brought into the equation.  No fake British accents are allowed. 

Other people take turns soloing over the chords every now and then. 

This is me, trying really hard to remember the lyrics to something. 

We're doing this every Sunday afternoon until football blows up the Sunday afternoon time slot.  Hope you can make it this weekend !!

Used acoustic. Take someone with you who knows what he's doing. Then take 6 months of lessons. I bet you'll get it.

Looks like too much fun TWS. I tried finding the quote, but came up empty. I believe it was Jimmy Page that once was asked about what it was like jammin' with a bunch of other guitarists at the same time. (As I totally butcher his quote) He said something to the effect of, "you can have 10 keyboards playing at the same time and it sounds like maybe 2, or 10 harmonicas at the same time and it sounds like 3 or 4, but you can have 10 guitars playing at the same time and you can hear 10 guitars, and that's what I like about it." My apologies to anyone that reads this comment, and especially I apologize to Jimmy Page for the butcher-job I just did on a brilliant quote. It's so true. I love jammin' with a bunch of different people with different styles and tastes. I learn something new every time.

TWS- I thought I saw you on the news this morning and had to post about it when I got to work. Hope you don't mind, I was just trying to be funny. Sometimes what I think is funny isn't even worth a chuckle to someone else. If you would rather I keep my stupid comedy routines to myself and keep you out of them, let me know and I'll take it down. I was bored off my ass at work today. I was actually hoping people would be coming by here and offering you their support, donations, etc leaving you wondering WTF???

Anyways, let me know brother. The last thing I meant by it was to insult or offend. I'm 99% sure it will roll right off your back and give you a laugh, but there's that 1% that's been bugging me since I posted it.

Warning - I'm putting new strings on the beast-of-a-12-string. It hasn't been restrung since the Clinton administration.
