Summer’s Gone But The Blues Are Still Here, Check Out These Excellent Opportunities To Plug In And Jam: a blog on finding a place to play the guitar over the summer.

Ever since I was a kid, one of my dreams was to have that cool rock and roll life. You know, playing in front of thousands of people while they screamed and cheered me on. Then I grew up and realized that I didn’t have any talent, but it doesn’t mean that I haven’t stopped looking for opportunities to show off my lack of skill!

But even if you are like me – not good enough to play with other people – there are still plenty of places to plug in your axe and let loose.

The Pacific Northwest is a great place for music lovers. There are so many opportunities out there to perform or hear live music that it can be hard to keep track of them all. Now that summer has finally arrived (at least according to the calendar), it is time to start thinking about where you can go this season to play your guitar or drums, or just listen.

As we move into the fall, our thoughts turn to colors and leaves and warmer clothing. But let’s not forget the blues. The music that is. If you are a musician looking for a place to play or just an enthusiast who wants to be around great musicians and hear some amazing music, check out these opportunities in the area:

1. The Greenfield Blues Society hosts jam sessions every Wednesday at 8 p.m. at the Landmark Tavern on Main Street in Greenfield. Players of all levels are welcome to sit in with local musicians, enjoy a few hours of great music, and maybe eat some fries too! Be sure to bring your gear and maybe get there early for a few drinks as it may get crowded later in the evening.

2. Every Friday night from 9 p.m. until midnight, you can find a group of excellent musicians hosting an open blues jam at the Captain’s Galley on Route 2A in Bernardston, MA. The Captain’s Galley is a very family friendly restaurant that offers excellent food, drink and service along with live entertainment most evenings. This particular event features various

Sometimes the best way to find a place to play is to ask. If you live in a small town, chances are that someone knows someone else with a guitar. If you live in a big city, there are probably students at your school who play.

Another option that is often overlooked but is nonetheless important is to check out the local library. Many libraries have books that can teach you how to play particular songs on the guitar. Some even have books that can teach you how to play an entire genre of music (e.g., blues).

The last option is probably the most obvious: call your local music store or visit them online. While many stores will be closed over the summer months, there are always a few open for business. You may want to call ahead of time and see if they have any special deals for new customers or ask about their return policy (if you don’t like it, return it!).

When I was a kid I wanted to learn to play guitar. My first time at the local music store in my town, I was so excited I could barely contain myself. I spent hours looking at all the different guitars and trying them out.

I left that day with an acoustic guitar, a tuner, a capo, and a chord book. When I got home, I set up my guitar on the stand, tuned it, and tried to figure out how to play it.

It didn’t work.

I tried for about two months to learn how to play but couldn’t get anywhere. Eventually, my mom took me back to the music store where she had purchased my guitar, and asked for help.

They suggested that we look for a beginner electric guitar instead of a beginner acoustic guitar because they were easier to play. So we bought a cheap Fender Stratocaster knockoff and plugged it into my dad’s old Fender Twin Reverb amp.

The next day when I got home from school, I picked up my new electric guitar and turned on the amp. It was loud! The sound of the distorted amp through the speakers reverberated in our living room and made me feel like Jimi Hendrix himself

If you can get your hands on a copy of the October issue of Guitar World magazine, check out the review of a new Ibanez guitar, called the ArtCore AS73. If you’re looking for a great starter guitar, then this is definitely one to consider.

What’s great about this guitar is that it has a solid-wood top, which is something that doesn’t come standard on most beginner guitars. The ArtCore AS73 also has a mahogany body and neck, from which its warm tones emanate. The AS73 also features two Standard Classic Elite humbucking pickups, which will help your sound reach its full potential without making too much noise or sounding too distorted. You can read more about these pickups at [Ibanez](

The next thing to consider is whether or not you want to buy an amp along with your guitar. An amp is not necessary if you’re just starting out, but it certainly makes things easier if you do decide to get one. If you’re going to buy an amp, I would recommend either a Fender Frontman 15G or a Behringer V-Amp 2 (both of which are around $100), but there are many options
