My name is Stephen. I am the St. Petersburg Acoustic Guitar & Instruments Group. Meetup organizer.
I began this group in June of 2018 after playing in a weekly meetup in NC for 1.5 years and wanted to continue to Learn & Share with other experienced and beginner guitarists.
We offer Learn & Share Acoustic Guitar Meetups (RSVP ONLY as space is limited.) :
Every Tuesday @ American Legion Post 14 - (“CASH ONLY” BAR)
Sign up at this link: https://www.meetup.com/Saint-Petersburg-Acoustic-Guitar-Instruments-Meetup/events/
RSVP is required for musicians (you) and your guests as space is limited. (Please cancel your RSVP if you are not able to attend.)
The goal of this Meetup is to be a place where you can:
1) Play and sing with other guitarists and musicians
2) Share songs you like, or wrote, and show us how to play
3) Learn new songs and expand your repertoire
4) Offer playing tips to others, and learn new tips
5) Appreciate and encourage fellow players
6) Gain confidence in your playing/singing
7) "Showboating" has its place but--it's not here.
To join us, you should:
1) Have a guitar and capo, or other acceptable instrument
2) Be open to most kinds of music (but no classical or rap)
3) Bring 12 copies of lyrics/chords for songs you want to play - I have handouts of several popular songs you can also use
4) Be able to play at least basic chords, e.g. A, Am, C, D, E, Em F, G
5) Show appreciation and encouragement for others' efforts
We take turns leading songs, but we are a No-Pressure Meet-Up, and you can Play or Pass on your turn. No one expects perfection. Do your songs your way and no need to sound like any recording – just have fun with it ! We welcome acoustic guitar players, non-amplified acoustic instruments, vocalists, non-drum-kit percussionists, wood flutists, etc. who want to learn from others and share what they know.
We look forward to meeting you.
