Free Lesson: Jam Session Strategy

Free Lesson:  Jam Session Strategy

by Steve Eulberg

My mother was right.  Boredom is a choice.

If I am bored in a Jam Session because the other players are playing the tune too fast, or too slow, or too many times (is that even POSSible?) do you know whose job it is to fix that?

MINE.

In this free lesson, Steve offers a suggestion about what do to participate, support the other players AND keep yourself awake and interested in a jam session.

Try it and let us know how it goes for you!

Tips for Jam Survival

Tips for Jam Survival

by Steve Eulberg

The Summer Festival season is fast approaching (can you feel the buzz of excitement in the air?)  Many of us set aside our winter rhythms and venture out to play music with others in new settings: out of doors, at picnics and cookouts, at public parks, at the beach, at festivals, at week-long learning opportunities.

Some of us are also a little anxious about these meetings because we’re not quite certain how we will survive when jamming with other people whom we don’t know!

So here is your opportunity to help!  Send us your best JAM SURVIVAL tips or stories and we’ll publish them on this blog, and/or use them in lessons on DulcimerCrossing.com

Do you have little things you do that help you enjoy a jam?  Learn as much as you can about a new tune?  What are the best tools and tricks that you know of?

You can write me here in the comments or send them to:  steve@owlmountainmusic.com.

Or you can make a video of your tip and upload it to youtube or vimeo and send us the link.

Or you can make an audio recording and upload it to soundcloud and send us the link.
