Event Description

The next Carolinas Box Guitar Club meeting, #30, will be Saturday, July 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 also have some members working on and playing 6-string guitar and bass, and harmonica.  We currently have 27 on our email list.

Bring 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.

Our "Jam" songs this month will include last month's Before You Accuse Me, in "G" key by Bo Diddley or Eric Clapton and two new songs:  Hoochie Coochie Man by Muddy Waters or Jeff Healey and Stormy Monday by T. Bone Walker.  All will use the 12-bar Blues chord structure and besides our normal "G" key we may try to play one in the key of "A".

We should have a video camera to record our jam for the members that couldn't attend and our education.

This should be another exciting meeting.  The food and service has been great.  Our waitress, Hellen, is also the manager of Big Al's.  It's in our best interest to tip her generously.  As long as we keep her happy, I think we will have a venue for our meetings.

See you there,

Fred
