    Ok I promised I'd try and sort out another jam for the UK and European guys before the big Antwerp event, so here it is.

    Put it in your diaries - 21st March 2020. I'm sticking with this date because of other commitments either side, I hope you can make it.

    For those who've never attended, do a search for Euroguestock and you can see some video evidence of previous ones. We tend to organise by creating a "song list" that we'd like to cover, and attendees put their names up to play parts. Then we also have a few blue-style jams, and others (at the last one in Paris Superstition was the base of a fun jam). Hopefully someone will kick off a google sheet shortly so we can start building the list.

    Players
    --------
    ALL are welcome, no matter what level. This is an inclusive, supportive event and it's just for fun. If you've never played with other musicians before, come along and see what happens - you may just want to watch for the first time, but we'll find something you can play on. It's also a great way to get to try some other gear; most people are happy to let you have a go with their stuff. At previous jams we've also had impromptu teaching sessions and guitar maintenance/restringing!

    Showoffs and misery guts need not apply. On the other hand we are always in need of singers, drummers and bass players, so invite your non-strat talk mates too.

    Gear
    -----
    I'll arrange with the studio for a drum kit, PA, bass amp and a couple of guitar amps. You are welcome to bring your own amps, mics, whatever. If we manage to get a keyboard player to join us I can try and get a keyboard too.

    Venue
    -------
    I'll try and book Mill Hill Studios - https://www.millhillmusiccomplex.co.uk/product-category/studio/rehearsal/ as soon as I have an idea of how many people are likely to attend. It's a bit basic, but there's an attached coffee shop when you need to get away from the noise (sorry, music) and it's very convenient train-wise for our European friends.

    Dinner afterwards will probably be at El Vaquero, a nearby Argentinian restaurant that we enjoyed last time.

    PLEASE POST TO THIS THREAD as soon as you know you can make it or can't, so I have an idea of the numbers.

    Calling on all the regulars, and a few of the others on the forum - please spread the word and let's have a good one!

    Yes, but there was no mention of misery kidneys or misery spleens. You’ll be fine! :thumb:

    I definitely can't make it. I have to keep my powder dry, I'm hoping for Antwerp for later in the year.

    Unfortunately, my tinnitus has become so bad, I dare not provoke it by playing at band volumes. The only gigs I go to now are comedy, and even then, I carry ear protectors. :(

    I'll happily edit video/mix sound after the event, if you want me to.

    Count me in. I've booked a hotel room for Sat night and will get train ticket at the end of the month.

    Stu, we've vetted you, you're ok. :thumb:Simon, I'm so sorry that your tinnitus deprives us of your company.:(

    Have already flagged to Marc, Caro and Claire.

    It's still very much fingers crossed for that one. So many unexpected things to do in the meantime.
