Event Description

Hi Players and Builders,  Please note our normal meeting day has been changed for this month. 

Nov. meeting will be Oct. 28, 2017.

And, the venue has changed.  We will meet at Big Al's Pub and Grubberia, 9306 Albemarle Road Charlotte, NC, USA, 28227 704-567-2333. It's Behind Rite Aid at The Corner Of Harrisburg And Albemarle Roads.

The Carolinas Box Guitar Club meeting #22 will be Saturday October 28, 2017 at 11:00 am at Taxco Mexican Grill [Mint Hill location], 7106 Brighton Park Dr., Mint Hill, NC across the parking lot from the Harris Teeter. We will continue having a monthly meeting on the first Saturday of each month.
Our purpose is to help members develop skills to build and play the 12-bar Blues on their 3-string, fret-less, electric, box guitars. We currently have 23 on our email list. We also have some guys working on and playing 6-strings. Bring a few of your projects for show and tell.
As usual we will discuss individual building and playing issues. Again, for our monthly playing topic, we will use our picking skills to play a shuffle beat for a 12-bar blues chord pattern. We may try and play along with "Hoochie Coochie Man" by Muddy Waters. Since we didn't get it last time, I'm going to talk about string scale, size and tension.
This should be another exciting meeting.
Uncle Fred
