Event Description

The next Carolinas Box Guitar Club meeting, #25, will be Saturday, February 3, 2018 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at Big Al's Pub & Grubberia, 9306 Albemarle Road Charlotte, NC 28227 704-567-2333. It's behind Rite Aid At The Corner Of Harrisburg and Albemarle Roads. It is 100 feet back from Albemarle Rd and across Albemarle Rd. from the Good Will store.

If the venue doesn't have a prior reservation, 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/or play the 12-bar Blues on their 3 or 4-string, fret-less, electric, box guitars. We currently have 25 on our email list. We also have some members working on and playing 6-strings and harmonica.

Bring a your new projects or cool equipment for show and tell. As usual we will discuss individual building and playing issues. Again, I'm bringing my 2 string, fret-less, CBG bass and the bass amp. I think several of the Blues Jam musicians will attend to help with our jamming.

We should have a video camera at the next meetings to record our jam for the members that couldn't attend.

For the January 6th meeting we had 9 show up. We had new builds and jammed to several songs. i even played my 2 string bass and Steve performed his first public solo. We had so much fun that even though we had two movie cameras, we neglected to get any videos. I think we need a video person.

This should be another exciting meeting in the new location. The food has been good.

See you there,

Fred
