– Never happier than when in a room full of guitars, and people who know how to play them 🙂
I did it! I went to the local folk and blues open singers slash jam night! All by myself! It was awesome! It was packed! The people were so lovely and welcoming and I got to play a couple of songs to a completely quiet group of people and it was so lovely. Heard a whole night full of excellent playing (if only it could be longer or happen every night!) and there was plenty of singing along although I narrowly missed out on the actual jam.
Think this ticks off my “find local musicians” missing piece and also fulfilled the purpose of walking into a place I knew NOBODY and just getting chatting to people, and practising being my real self (she laughs a lot) – I will definitely be going back and it could be a new home for me. Brilliant night.
