Meeting – Sat. April 13th

Finally! Sorry, I’m late posting this Saturday’s Song list. Hopefully you’ll have time to practice these songs beforehand.

We are going to try something new and if it works we may continue. We are going to plan to give more time for performances. Just ten more minutes. Thanks in advance for your patience and hopefully this will give ample time to hear more from you talented Pluckin’ Strummers.

9:00am – Free 45 minute Group Lesson Session. I’ll do my best to get there by 9 and assist anyone needing any extra help. If no one needs attention then we’ll review the arrangements to be covered in the second half.

Howdy everyone! It’s Tuesday and I’ve finally picked this Saturday’s song list. My sincere apologies for the delay.

Our last meeting was really great. Many dedicated regulars and several new faces made it a special gathering.

Some of you may notice that I’m really trying to choose songs we haven’t done in the past and yes, they are slightly more difficult but they can be played when you review the chords and give them a little practice. I had a blast playing these during my selection process.

A huge thank you to Gene and Cory for keeping it rolling.

I’m posting this a little late and I apologize. It’s gonna take me a little bit to get back in the swing of things. It wasn’t easy picking songs but I think this will work.

Here is the list of songs chose by Gene. I’m sure everyone will help Gene and Cory get through the meetings in January without a hitch. The recommended donation is only $5.00 for this meeting and the one on the 26th, and that all the proceeds will go to the venue.

I will surely miss you all but I’ll be back for our February meetings.

Just to make sure there is ample time to prepare we will have our 8 Year Anniversary Meeting Spectacular on the 23rd of February. Don’t miss this meeting! It’s gonna be an awesome gathering with lots of fabulous giveaways and a special guest or two! Woohoo!
