Jamming Music Club - G_MAGIC

Music-music-32070905-1440-900

For some reason I don't see many musicians in Guyana.
People certainly like music, but its not like the rest of South America, where if you sit on a street corner for a few hours, 4 musicians will walk by.

I bought a guitar and I have been learning to play, its coming along nicely (almost kicking Eric Clapton's ass ).
I had no idea what I was doing when I bought the guitar, I actually bought a nylon string guitar, classical guitar, but that is not what I play...
I like the Doobie Brothers, AC/DC, Justin Timberlake, Savage Garden, Uncle Kracker, Pharrell Williams, Bill Withers, Bishop Briggs, Cat Stevens and that whole 70's, 80's 90's music scene.
I play that stuff on my guitar of accidental choice.

I got the guitar going, it sounds good, now I'm learning to layer and write music, trying to figure out how it all fits together, that is coming along, but to really get into that, the right thing to do is start Jamming with other musicians.

Its a difficult thing, I think I would fall asleep with classical musicians, matching taste and getting a club going is not so easy... but if you play a musical instrument, saxophone, drums, any instrument or like singing, then chat about what you like here and maybe we can get something going.

Singing is much more difficult than I ever imagined, singing along with a song, and singing just to instruments playing, is two different ball games.
Its not easy making music, but it is simply amazing when it clicks.

So the idea is to play around with musical ideas, layer sounds and see if we can make music.
Few clubs actually make it, its very much about passionate interest and people that click. There are some famous examples like the Cuban Social club, that churned out stars, but they few and far between.

Many people think its about getting a guitar and then you get hot women, its not, its love of the process, if that is the only goal, doubt you going to become a musician, that's just the marketing.
Its actually work, and the magic happens if you get lucky.
Its kind of like comedians, when you meet them in real life, most are super serious people, off stage.

So chat and maybe something emerges... idea is to have some fun trying to make magic.

OK... time to make my name mud, make family hide their heads in shame, and scare the dog...
I've only been playing guitar for 2 years, trying to sing like a frog and write songs for 2 months... as for songs, I just make up the first thing that comes to mind...
Whew!... ok laugh

 

Yeah... need a singer badly... Adele wouldn't take the job.

Keep it up dude. GNI does have a few who are into music, me being one. Since moving north (Canada) I recently hooked up with a large group of players..approx 20 at any given time. There is a sax..a keyboard..a violin..couple djembies (African type drums)...about fifteen guitars, we take turns in singing our choice of tunes.

I have been playing and singing about fifty years.

Hi wish I had started a long time ago, didn't know what I was missing, doodling with feeling... is kind of how I describe it.
How these guys that have never met, sit and jam together is still a mystery to me.
The one thing that has blown me away and now that I look, I see it, is how few musicians actually did it all...
I attached a couple of Torrents for you... one is SCORE and its just a hand full of guys that have made all of Hollywood's music.
HIRED GUNS... also attached is the story of the few dozen guitarists that basically did the whole rock and roll era.
If you look at the web as well, there are millions of Guitarists, but right at the top, miles above everyone else, there are just a handful of amazing guitarists... like this guy... IGOR the Russian
I copy him... maybe in 50 years I'll catch up...
