New Blues Jam.

Recommended Posts

Two weeks to go!  Time to finish the neck re-set on your '59 ES330, or do the caps on the blackface Deluxe Reverb- the one, without which, your tone is forever in disguise.  ;)

Alternatively, you could just plug your Squier Strat into one of my selection of non-vintage, but loud combos....and give the regulars a few songs.  Extra points for obscurity and singing in tune.  Deductions, if your pedal board is bigger than a tweed guitar case!

13th at 3pm.  Daviot has only one bar- you can't miss it!    Be there- or be rectangular.  :)

Already got my gear looked out and raring to go for this Sunday. Full backline all ready for you, bring your instrument and/or songs along and have a great time jamming. Last one was a belter, let's make this one even better. It's got to be a good omen, Flaneur found his capo!

I have a Mojo Hand, thanks..... but if you have any surplus John the Conqueror Root you don't want- I'm in the market.  :D

Ahh, but is your Mojo actually working? I'm looking for a Gypsy woman to give me some advice at the moment. Looking forward to Sunday.

I always assumed a Devil Woman was just and Evil Woman....in the key of D. ;)

A Black Magic Woman will make you go blind!

Is this the same Gypsy Woman that used to tell your Mother?

Next Jam is on March 26th, starting at 3. 

On February 4th, 1932, Tampa Red recorded 'You can't get that stuff no more'.  Wonderful song though that is, I have to tell you that - 85 years later- you still can get that stuff......and you will, if you come to the jam.  :)

The first lunchtime radio show for field workers in the American south, was broadcast on November 21st, 1941.  Sonny Boy Williamson 2 and Robert Lockwood Junior were the hosts.  Now it's the longest-running daily radio show in US history..........

Yesterday's show started with a Sonny Boy tune- 'Fattening frogs for snakes'- which is a favourite of Ab-Mus correspondent Trikelops.  At the last count, he had performed this song in public on 3,481 occasions.

It would be nice if the Smiddy Blues Jam became a 76 year fixture in the local music scene.  The next edition begins at 3pm on May 28th.  Come along and have some fun.  You'll be able to tell your grandkids you were in at the start.;)

It will be 3,482 times on the 28th Flanuer. Sadly, I doubt if I'll still be around in 76 years time, think I'm lucky to have made it this far.

Looking forward to the 28th for sure. Hoping for another great day and plenty of good music.

Well yesterday was a blinder, best jam so far in my humble opinion. Some of the regulars were no-shows but despite that there was a lot of terrific music played and not a single ego was to be witnessed. Two other really good bass players turned up too, so at least I got a break this time. Looking forward to the next one already.

The next Smiddy Blues jam will be held on July 30th, at 2pm.

Please note that this is an hour earlier than the previous start time.   Every performer who shows up will play....and we need the extra hour, to fit you all in.  :cool:

The jam is on Sunday.  The more of you show up to play, the less the audience have to listen to me.  It's called a win-win.......

Things I have learned from organising a musical event, volume 4........

1.  Good things are worth waiting for.  You can stop looking at your watch, now......

2.  All those buttons, sliders and knobs on a mixing desk have functions, apparently.

3.  Many of life's questions can be answered with a loud amp and a wah-wah pedal.

4.  When you sing in a different key to the usual ones, strange and unpleasant things can happen.

Oh yeah..... this isn't a New Jam, any more.  It's a bi-monthly Participatory Event.  Or something......;)

Bi-monthly? Is that twice a month now? I need to get to this, haven't managed yet.

Nah, it's still every two months....but yes, you should come out.  :)

Now what I need is a driver.  If  could drink the Taylor's, whilst organising the running order, it would be a perfect way to spend an afternoon.

Strange and wondrous sighting at the last Smiddy bi-monthly doofer......

AbMus favourite, Country stalwart and unrecognised offspring of Mary Ford and Chet Atkins- Bigsby, was spotted in a spanky rendition of some North Texas blues.  The well-known Shadovian (new word) wiggle stick enthusiast would clearly be welcome in any roadhouse between Fort Worth and El Paso, on this showing.  Is this the way to Amarillo?  Err, no, actually.  You needed to throw a right at Abilene and take Highway 83.......

Next Smiddy jam is on September the 24th

You may have heard the rumour that Buddy Guy will be making a brief guest appearance.  George and I have  had a good chuckle about that (I call him George).

There are just no secrets in the modern world.  Although I don't know whether or not you are coming along, to get a selfie with George......
