It can now be revealed.

What: Open stage/mic jamboree chiefsplanet all day entertainment get-together party funk-tango thing.

Where: Neighbor's Landing, 2935 State Highway TT, Sunrise Beach, MO

When: Feb. 23 2008. Start time TBD by # of committed jammers.

Who: Obviously any and all planeteers, jammers or not. Whole bands will be able to perform together, so bring your bandmembers. I am not going to spend any more time typing who descriptions, so if I have forgotten you, consider yourself included as welcome.

All standard jam session etiquette should be followed. If you don't know, ask somebody.

And shake-dancers, we'll need lots and lots of shake-dancers.

Why: To keep from wanting to.

In the interest of maintaining the Neighbor's Landing non-violent atmosphere, all Chiefs Planet disputes will be resolved in a Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament.

I have some venues in mind ranging from small club w/stage to outdoors w/plenty of camping.

It would be incredibly groovy to know how up front many jammers will attend. Four jammers would work well in the small club for one evening. 84 or so jammers would require the outdoor place for a weekend, you know, "planetstock".

I hope there is alot of interest as well, Mr. FAX. I think if we take care of bidness properly, the shake-dancers will fall right into place.

I like that idea, too. As an exercise, I have been on a side trip with the fender this year and learning all of SRV's stuff, Mr. Dinny Blues. Do you guys play anything by him?

FAX

Dinny Blues
12-19-2007, 02:37 PM
Our SRV tune is Pride And Joy.

We do ALOT of Freddie King. Albert and BB Kings, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Jimmy Rogers, Jimmy Witherspoon, Jimmy McCracklin, T-Bone Walker, Little Walter, Muddy Waters and a whole bunch of other dead guys I can't think of right now.

Old R&R - Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Elvis, there is actually a Beatles song (Slow Down) that we occasionally do. (I just now realized that, a Beatles song, wiggy...)

Anyway if we have up to a dozen or so jammers, I think one evening indoors would work. I could line up something that size in Jan or Feb pretty easily, unless we are talking multiple Marshall stacks. I'm sure I could find a club that would let us do that and turn it up, but sane db levels are easier to sell to a club owner. My budget is such that I'd rather have a club owner sell some drinks to let us jam than rent a hall somewhere. (Which can be an option if number of jammers warrants)

There is no sound like a doghouse. I now have the intro to Rickie Lee's "Easy Money" looping in my brain. I would assume you are used to hauling both, but if you're only bringing one, it's the doghouse.


waaaaaiiiiiiit.... that was a trick question, right?

Are you working regular? Kirk and I have been on an unsuccessful 25 year search for the right bass player. Our winters are slow but from mid-march to mid-november we are going to be monsterously busy. The summertime audiences here at the lake are some of the most beautiful I've seen.

Anyone is more than welcome (presence requested, actually) to make the scene whether you play an instrument or not. And as far as I'm concerned any skilled player that is unable to play competently and professionally with an unskilled player is not actually all that skilled, and is an uncouth uppity besides.

Oh, you mean a harpsichord. I had you figured for a piccolo player.

I'm no Ann Landers, but a couple of things you might consider:

1. You will need to bring your harpsichord with you. There is no "house" harpsichord. All other well-seasoned harpsichordists will obviously be bringing theirs. When we set up, all the harpsichordists will get together and decide which harpsichord will be set up for all players to use since a harpsichord is just like having sex with a kangaroo.

2. Simultaneously picking your nose and scratching your ass IS NOT an acceptable display of ambidexterity or limb independence.

I think the harpsichord thing is someone just having fun. But if it isn't, and someone actually does bring a harpsichord, there is a sliding glass door at the end of the stage. If we remove the stationary panel, we should be able to bring it in without removing its legs.

I'm hoping lack of thread participationhas more to do with the holidays than anything else. If this thread were stickied, I'm afraid the Planet would be overpopulated with kittens. Perhaps a shameless bump vigil is in order.

you should be able to google chuck berry or basic blues patterns then the scales best used to improvise with them unfortunatly i try this and i still sound like a 4th grader on speed

I've never even heard of this place.

BTW, from your other thread I have a question about this quote.



Ummmm, while I like blues, I'm much more of a modern rock/metal player. I wouldn't even know how to play old traditional blues and/or Chuck Berry style. Sure, I can kind of learn stuff on the fly sometimes. But it might not sound too great for a little while. ;) My question is do your friends who show up and jam already know some cover tunes that you play? I have learned many songs over the years but forgot how to play most of them. I get into a frenzy of learning a song or 3 or 4 at times and then forget about them. The band I used to be in was all original rock tunes.

I'll post an address when I get it.

The blues, IMO, is a simple, basic, raw form of music. Its most basic form is 3 chords, 12 bars, LESS IS MORE. If applied properly, that should get you through 75% of most blues gigs. Count it off, get the feel, jump in and hold on the best you can.

To me, blues drumming is very simple. Just have a catalogue of appropriate beats, select one, determine tempo, lock it down repetitive 'til ya got them suckas hip-mo-tized.

I suggest all the Freddie King you can get your hands on. There are several good albums. Eric Clapton plays 2nd guitar for Freddie on one of them, I think it was Texas Cannonball, but I'm not sure. My Feeling For The Blues is another good one.

I'm not suggesting learning Freddie covers. But I beleive there are more guitar players that have borrowed Freddie's licks than even know it.

If you are a fan of SRV, have you heard very much of Albert King?

I hear a huge Albert King influence in Stevie's playing. Especially that double string bend thing. I don't know what to call it, but I know it when I hear it. When I worked with Babe Martin, he used it alot.

Well first off, Mr. BigRedChief, I don't know where "Party Cove" is. Second off, I didn't realize that 2/23 was the middle of winter ... will it be icy? Third off, I would love to come to Arrowhead ... it's one of my greatest dreams ... maybe next year. Fourth off, we're talking about jamming. I'm the kind of person who will jam anytime, anywhere.

Drew and Lisa are the Neighbor's Landing owners, but are real fine folks in spite of it. Not all bar owners are like Bob at The Country Bunker, just most of them.

Drew makes some excellent baby backs, and Lisa's kitchen has several specialties. Her home-made potato chips are to die foah.

It would be reasonably groovy to get an idea of how many players will attend so we can set a start time.

It gets fiddled with a lot, and Bob Dole can't play the thing. You can tune it however you'd like.

I wasn't trying to be nosy, or anything.

There are several different tunings guys use. AEA is probably the most common although I've heard them tuned EEB with the strings really loose and slappy. You know, like the sound a fat girl's thighs make when she's making love in the cotton fields on a summer night.

Is the Jam Session still a go? Wondered what was up with it. Anyone have information about who all is going or how many people expected? Is it open to the public as well? More information needed before I make a 100 mile trip to attend.

At this point, I think FAX and Bob Dole are the only two who have shown interest.

If that's all there is, it would be better for them to just come and set in at one of our gigs during the season.

Anyone and everyone is more than welcome whether they play or not.

The club is open to the public. It is a Bar&Grill kinda joint. I thought it would be a better idea than renting a hall.

Actually, our little orchestra is hosting the monthly Lake Of The Ozarks Blues Society jam session at Neighbor's next Tuesday, the 12th beginning at 7PM.

I figured if there wasn't any more interest by then, I'd just tell yous guys and Drew & Lisa to forget it.

I guess we got about five days.

Maybe we chalk this one up as a nice try, Mr. Dinny Blues. It's too bad, but it sounds as though we need more player peeps.

My suggestion is that we give it another shot sometime in the summer.

This is what I've been thinking. If you were to just show at one of our gigs, you probably get more playing time anyway.

Plus, the atmosphere, scenery and perks are much better in the summertime around here anyway.

Although there could be a ninth inning rally bust out on this thing.

Thanks for the invitation, Mr. Dinny Blues. I'd enjoy that. I've actually been invited to a reunion of one of the college bands I played in. I might have to round up some groupies and put together a midwest tour.
