    Hey all,

    I'm really not sure if this will work out of not, but I was thinking about organizing a get together in a rehearsal space somewhere. Hamilton perhaps, or maybe Mississauga. (Ontario, Canada).

    Hang out for a few hours, play some tunes, have a drink or two.
    Low key, all skill levels (since I'm crap!); more a chance to meet and play with a few other people, not a MLP All Star Band type event.

    We could pick some tunes on the night, make a list beforehand, or just make up some 12-bar improv stuff. Whatever works.

    Would also need drummer, bass guitarist, and maybe even a vocalist!

    Again, a low key event, not a show case type event.

    If you are interested please shoot me a PM. I was thinking Hamilton at the end of March, maybe a thursday or friday evening thing, but flexible. Haven't put much thought into the mechanics, just throwing it out there to see if there is interest.

    Hey guys,

    Sorry for dropping the ball on this one. Re-org at work, and other commitments made it a bit more problematic than it should have been to organize.

    But I found a venue:
    Lou's Music Online : Hamilton Ontario New and Used Musical Instruments, Consignments, PA Rentals, Soundcheck Rehearsal Studios and equipment repairs

    Queenston Rd, E Hamilton.

    I was thinking Wednesday 27th of May or Friday June 5th.

    PM me if interested. $20 per hour, split between us. I'll cover the first hour myself since I'm not having to travel far.

    I would be cool with that, Hamilton is only about 20-30mins from me, Friday would work best, but I wouldnt be there until the evening since I have work on weekdays.

    Skill: beginner/intermediate, I can riff along and pick up things, but Im not good at imrpovisation or soloing really.
    Musical Styles: Same as NGG, except probably minus AC/DC :laugh2:
    Other instruments: I have a tambourine? and a kazoo :laugh2:

    Is this a private meeting or can any hack attend??:D I was looking for info on the Philly guitar show and stumbled in here just now. Kind of strange and serendipitous. Hamilton works for me, considering I live here!:naughty:

    October 24th may work for me. I'd have to run it by my even planner.

    Cheers Peter.
