presented by Canberra Blues Society
This is the last Workshop for the year, so we’ll celebrate in style with treats on the tables, a Xmas Raffle & a CBS member lucky door prize. We’ll also be farewelling Rick Bamford who has run the Workshops for around 6 years.
The Canberra Blues Society runs Blues Jam Workshops to assist interested musicians to develop their skills and gain experience in playing the blues in a band situation.
Held on the 1st Wed each month, except January, at The Harmonie German Club and presented in a format similar to but more intimate than the monthly Blues Jams.
The workshops are not intended to show you how to play your instrument, but they may give you a better understanding about how blues music is structured and how you can communicate this to the other members of your band.
The workshop jams aim to create a comfortable, non-threatening environment where less confident musicians and singers can perform in a band situation. Advice and mentoring will be provided by our house band featuring a selection of our finest players.
Participants need only bring their instruments. A PA system and back-line, including a drum kit, two guitar amps, keyboard and a bass rig are provided.
We try to make sure that all participants get a chance to have a play on material they feel comfortable with.
Three songs are chosen each month, which are sent out via email to participants to practice before the workshop. The charts are also posted on the Facebook Workshop Group.
If you know of any budding blues players who may be interested, please send them an invite.
