I'm talking about more of the songwriting part. Rather than an open mic night.
At first the whole thing doesn't have to be that concrete. Whatever works everyone.
I liked the idea of a rehearsal room. More freer to do stuff - doing it in a more public place you might have people wondering "WTF are these guys up to".
Well unless someone can provide a rehearsal room that option is t available.
Unless people are willing to contribute a fee per week in order to pay for one.
Who cares what people wander?
At first, I think it would be best to meet up and introduce ourselves and discuss our experiences and offer tips and tricks about songwriting and performing.
I would be surprised if anyone wants to sing the first time we meet.
Any pub would be ideal for an initial meeting, from there, we could plan the next get together and after the 3rd or so meeting, a well structured culture/atmosphere would naturally form.
Does that sound good to anyone?
I like that idea^
Is it okay if I tag along even though I'm not a songwriter? I'm an ASPIRING songwriter, and have struggled to put my thoughts into a song, but would love to get into it.
This sounds like a brilliant idea , if this goes ahead count me in
If you can speak, have a vague idea how to play a note on an instrument - I can show you techniques to create a song. I may not be able to unstruggle your thoughts.
yeah thats a plan.
if folk could mail me what day suits and i can try find a happy medium or if people would prefer that i just arrange a day/time?
Sounds like a plan to meet somewhere first and see what we can come up with regarding where and when to host this
Might I suggest somewhere in town next week? How about Wednesday 22nd Feb at 8pm in The Stags Head? Or any other suggestions welcome, can't really think of another bar right now. We could always meet for coffee!
Only saw your post there marky mark, will PM you
Why private message business.
A group hasn't even formed yet and I'm getting a feeling you've already put yourself in charge.
Next Wednesday at some place like the Stags head would be good. Is 8 too early - I don't want to turn and be hanging around for an hour and half before someone else straggles in.
Though, it can get crowded, and it's 15 quid a pint. Sheebeen Chic (if it's still open) might be a better idea. They might let us go downstairs, which is usually empty.
I'd like to bring my guitar - though I may not even use it -
Though this thing should be relaxed and informal, as I would imagine, people could be nervous about this kind of thing. As long as two or three people turn up, it will be worth doing. I'd like to meet FiveLamps
How about a hands up? I'm going .......But where and when am I going.
In fairness someone needs to organise it, or it'll end up with everyone suggesting different things and nothing gets done!
I'm a maybe
p.s. I do drink, just in case the mod thing throws ye off
I'll PM or publicly post.
I'll be free on Wednesday 22nd of Feb. I'd need to rush myself for 8 but perhaps 8.30 would be better for me so I'll be
there wherever then.
Or a consensus is arrived at quickly. Wednesday night somewhere in the city centre is looking like the consensus.
Somewhere where we can have a chat. This something I've wanted to do for a while and I'm sure others have too. Meet people who have a similar interest. Swap ideas.
You may as well. You could get a lot out of it.
Bring your guitar case - except have it stuffed with a bottle of vodka and few cans of red bull, instead of the banjo.
