Guitar Jam

It's my experience that in the end, life lessons and guitar lessons begin to blur in all sorts of interesting ways. (Brad Paisley, Diary of a Player: How My Musical Heroes Made a Guitar Man Out of Me)
Guitarists get together for an hour once a month to swap techniques, fingerings, styles, and pick up some tips by playing with someone else as opposed to playing alone, etc. Anyone with a guitar is invited, whether they play well or just a beginner who wants to try and come learn something. It doesn't matter whether you want to play a liturgy or not. Popular songs and warm-up and improvisation exercises are explored as well as songs for Mass. The emphasis is simply to encourage more and better guitar playing in a self-run master class type setting, where you can help each other. The monthly jam is 3:30 - 4:30 
PM in the Marian Center on the last Saturday of the month. (Sometimes it's moved up a week if the last Saturday falls on a holiday weekend. Check the calendar before you come!)
