Thanks and lets have some fun...
We will be moving to TV soon. My husband is an old guitar player and ready to get started playing again. Played in a band in high school. Let me know where and when you will be getting together. He would love to get involved.

Boogie jr, I've been to your Beatlemaniacs club, I'm looking for something simpler to play. Anyone have a list of songs to be played?

Not sure I can make it this Saturday, this is my first time here at TOTV so it's short notice. But I'd love to come to the next one...if there is a next one. What is everyone bringing? Amps? Effects pedals? It's going to be a noisy place!
You can always go to the acoustic guitar club on Thursday mornings at Paradise. It does tend to be very heavily country influenced but you can bring some simple chord sheets of whatever songs you want to do. When it comes your turn just pass them out. I've done several rock songs there. If you want to get together on some rock songs and do them as a duet I would be interested in doing that.

Sounds interesting! What's the format? Will there be chord or lead sheets?

Well the first format was...Lets have fun.. play easy stuff (3 or 4 chord progressions) and just get the rust off.. That is still the basic format.. for now it's still evolving..
Lets get folks who haven't played in a while a chance to play..to meet other musicians in the area and to "knock some rust off " so to speak.. The last time we played at Bradenton in April we had some great folks there and we had a good time and it was fun to play again. I've lived here for almost 4 years and I finally broke the keys out again and I had a blast although rusty. That is the purpose of this get together.. everyone can come out and play. At the last gathering we just went with the flow. so to speak and let everyone do what they do best musically. This time though(and I hate to make rules) it will be a little easier if you have a song that you want to play please bring a few chord sheets for the song. Chordie.com is usually a good reference.
So please .. Show up .. bring your wives or siginifigant others.. and what you want to wet your whistle with.. and lets knock that rust off together for a few hours. BTW we have the room for 3 hours which between set up and knock down leaves us about 2hrs to play so the closer to 3 that you can get there the better... Thanks... Dan

I love TOTV. I am always learning new things from the fantastic members on it.
Dan, THANKS SO MUCH. I just went to this site, picked up my old guitar and played for two hours, all off of the site. By the way, I only know a few chords and have not played in YEARS, but had a ball. Wish I was up there to join you all. Have a great time.

With all this music talk I am so tempted to pick up an inexpensive keyboard and try to get my fingers in shape. I played for six months and haven't touched the instrument in over 40 years and when I did play I wasn't very good. I'd try a guitar but with a broken pinkie finger and left hand that is permanently bent at a 90 degree angle, it might be hard to play anything too complicated.
