The next Carolinas Box Guitar Club meeting, #27, will be Saturday, Arpil 7, 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, across Albemarle Rd. from the Good Will store and about 200 feet back from Albemarle Rd.
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-string guitar and bass, and harmonica.
Bring a your new music projects or cool equipment for show and tell. As usual we will discuss individual building and playing issues. I think several of the Blues Jam musicians will attend to help with our jamming and we may have a singer.
We should have a video camera at the next meetings to record our jam for the members that couldn't attend. Our sound check before our video recording greatly improved our recording quality. I will bring my Boss GT-1 multi-effects pedal. It's got a large number of amp models and effects options and is a great way to experiment with various effects for less than the cost of two separate pedals.
For the March 3th meeting we had 8 attending. We talked about new builds and equipment and jammed to several songs. Hollis brought along extra guitars for us to try out. We were able to record 6 video songs.
This should be another exciting meeting. The food and service has been great.
See you there,
