May Jam Camp: More Electric Blues

Plugging in and playing the blues is shaping up to be the direction for the next several jam camp sessions. We are meeting this month on two Saturdays, the 17th and the 24th, at 11AM. The session on 5/17 is full, but there’s still one open slot on the 24th.

On the playlist this time: John Lee Hooker’s Boogie Chillen, Sweet Home Chicago (usually associated with players like Buddy Guy, but actually a Robert Johnson tune), and Albert King’s Born Under A Bad Sign. As always, there are song sheets to help you get ready. This time, I made a complete transcription of Bad Sign so we can get it right; it’s trickier than people think. We’re not slack.

More general details and the all-important Jam Rules can be found in the “Jam Camp” section here on my website. Check it out and come  play!
