Event Description

Hollis brought his most recent build to our last meeting.  Included a photo for your enjoyment.

The next Carolinas Box Guitar Club meeting, #31, will be Saturday, August 4, 2018 from 11:00 am to 2:00+ pm at Big Al's Pub & Grubberia, 9306 Albemarle Road, Charlotte, NC 28227, USA, 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 29 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.


Besides our previous three songs noted above, we will add The Sky is Crying by Elmore James.  We will play it in a 12-bar blues chord structure.  We will also try and play at least one of our songs in the Key of "B".

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, Elaine, is also the manager of Big Al's [Opps I had her name wrong before].  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

Lefty

Only had one piece of wood long enough, so placed it vertically. Feels good in your hand.
