More about jammin with the fellows

Posted by banjodad on Sunday, September 28, 2008

So, the jamming with the fellows has changed somewhat. We have been meeting the second Tuesday of the month at a little bar here about. We have a couple of regulars that show up, who belong to a band. We have from time to time had various associates and other members of this same band come along. We also get a banjo picker and his mandolin picker brother from another band. It is beautiful when they play a duet.

Last time we had a couple of members of the “public” join us. It was a first. One was not too bad. He had his own guitar and was willing to sing one to join us. The other proved to be a little more difficult to deal with. He didn’t have his own instrument and proceeded to “tune” each one of mine he put his hands on. I think we will have to set some ground rules. For example: no instrument no pickin’, and to join the group you have a song.

One of my good partners has moved back to the States and is now jamming every night. He was the first person I found to play with here and is a fine fellow as well as a good picker. Jim Greer is his name if you are in Southern Virginia you might run into him.

I agree with the no instrument, no pickin'.  I wouldn't let anyone touch my Stelling and if they started tuning it and messing around with it -- I'd probably gently but firmly take it away from them (not that I'd give it to them in the first place).

That's just rude!   It would like a house guest re-arranging your furniture!

I don't even tune an instrument in a music store without asking permission...although they are usually more than happy to have someone tune their instruments. Keeping all those stringed instruments in a store tuned takes a lot of time.
