Event Description

New Venue and New Time and bring your lunch

The next Carolinas Box Guitar Club meeting, #42, will be Saturday, July 6, 2019 from 10:00 am to 2:00+ pm in the horse barn at Scoggins Farm, 7209 Concord Rd Hwy, Monroe, NC. On 601, the Farm is about 0.4 mile south of the intersection of Hiway 601 and 218 and is about 7 miles from I485 on 218. It's very easy to find with a big "Scoggins Farm" sign beside 601. Everyone will need to bring their own lunch and drinks.

We will continue having our monthly meeting at least 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 36 on our email list.

For July 6,

We will have a short demo on "Building your own Box for your guitar".

We will talk about four rhythm elements that change the sound of your picked or strummed notes.

We will also review the 7th chord "Box" or pattern for picking an arpeggio rhythm instead of strumming chords.

Also, we'll all perform our Counting Song and do some jamming.

Bring your new cool music equipment or projects for show and tell. As usual, we will discuss individual building and playing issues. I hope several of the Blues Jam musicians will attend to help with our jamming. Bring a small amp, a few watts, for your electric instruments.

So far, our "Carolinas Box Guitar Club Jam" songs include:
Before You Accuse Me, by Bo Diddley or Eric Clapton
Stormy Monday by T. Bone Walker.
The Sky is Crying by Elmore James.
I Almost Lost My Mind by Albert King.
Little Red Rooster by Willie Dixon.

All will use the three chord, 12-bar Blues chord structure. So far, we are playing in the keys of "G", "A", "B", "C" or "D".

We hope to have a video camera to record our jam for the members that couldn't attend and for our personal quality control.

This should be another exciting meeting.
See you there!

Fred
