I will be heading home from NY Sunday.I'll tune in when I get home and if a time slot is open I may even jump in for a few.

LOL - Oh trust me - this will turn into a StreetJelly fiddle-party during the fill-in slots - there is no doubt about it - we'll all be around....

Hello there folks.

I am helping out with my grand children in the afternoon.  Always a chance I could play a little tune or two.

I am behind in reading.  Is there a song set.. I vaguely recall there being some set of not a challenging songs.  Or can we pop in with our usual sets? 

Sorry I totally "old lady" brained on this one as far as the details.

🙂

Pierre put together some easy arrangements of songs to encourage people to take part, but I don't think there's any rules about what you play.

I've just put together a list of stuff I can play reasonably well. I'm even going to chuck in a couple of tunes on the flute to try to stretch my limited repertoire to fill the time slot.

@coolpinkone No rule on what songs, we're just trying to stick to beginner "first year" stuff, whatever we consider that to be. I have a list of stuff I'm planning to play that will at most take me 10 minutes, lol, so I see myself playing my normal stuff after that unless I can manage to chat A LOT, hahaha.

For everyone... Updated show schedules:

Show Schedules in *EST: (will be updated as people schedule)
 
*if you are logged into StreetJelly show times on the website will show in your time zone. Click this link for the calendar: http://www.streetjelly.com/calendar
**Please title shows "Fiddlerman Amateur Hour-XX Min" so we know how many minutes you plan to play. Suggested schedule time for 1 song is 10 minutes 🙂 **

Thanks, @Fred ! 🙂 There are chat boxes open for each show, so make sure to say hi and ask questions if you have any 🙂 Most of us playing are all at various levels of beginning, but can help each other out 🙂

We have 2:00 reservations for my mother-in-laws 91st birthday, so I'm afraid that I'm going to miss many of the shows. frown

But I'll log on as soon as I am able to catch what I can. I'm going to bring headphones with me and try to listen in the car through my phone as we drive home. Good luck everyone and have fun!

I will definitely participate in the next one!

I've been having problems with my internet connection for the last few days - it keeps cutting out. Apparently there's a problem at the exchange which they promised to fix by Friday, but it's still happening today.

I'm going for it on SJ, but if I suddenly disappear, you'll know what happened!

Okay, today is the first time I ever HEARD of StreetJelly.com, but I can see it and stream it on my computer. So I'll watch all of you while you pretend to be newbies again! No, I am not going to quickly figure out a video setup and broadcast myself with a bag over my head playing only the open strings!!!

Have fun!

@Jim Dunleavy No worries 🙂 We're understanding of technical difficulties 😀 

@SemiNun Glad you're going to come watch 🙂 I'll feel like a newbie for sure while I do my show. I've been brushing up on the first tunes I learned but not sure how I'll sound playing them, haha 🙂 It had been a while since I've played any of them, some I even forgot that I had learned them, but sure enough, I have my homework dates written on them, haha!

Feel free to ask questions if you have any 🙂

Ah, sadly, I just read about this 🙁 And since my mum is currently heading to bed, she'd probably kill me if I started playing. But I'll happily take part if you decide to organise another Amateur Hour 🙂 I think, it's a great idea!

On a slightly related note: questions about what I am doing wrong go in the 'Learning to play'-section, right? I just don't want to post in the wrong forum.

I thoroughly enjoy seeing, listening chatting with everyone tonight.

Thank you very much, someday when I can play well enough I will be on the other end of the feed as well.

I tip my hat to all of you!

@Mailprion No worries, we have other events through the year 🙂 Will post them once they are decided on 🙂 And yes, that would be the right forum to post 😀

@Fred Thanks for tuning in! 😀

 

hats_offAnd thanks everyone who tuned in, and those who played 😀 Glad we had some new players, and some just new to StreetJelly!cheerleaderclap

I think we had a great turnout for the event 😀 All my annoying people advertising for weeks worked, haha! dancinbunnydancing

  Yes - thank you all for either being in the audience or playing - excellent - and although we have a regular "open day" with the Strings on Sundays event - that doesn't always mean that's the only time we'll go on to StreetJelly.  Anyone can schedule a show for any time - so  - to at least have the chance of catching one of our members - remember to add them as favourites in your SJ account - them you get mailed (a) when they schedule a show, and (b) when they go live....   

  It is GREAT to see and hear the new players !   Cool !   Well done each and every one of you ! clapclapclapclapclap

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Yes, thanks to all who took part and watched. I thoroughly enjoyed both playing and watching. We must do it again! 🙂

And thankfully my internet connection behaved itself!

Yes, and if you tuned in yesterday and forgot to add anyone you can still add them 😀  Here are the links to all the players pages from yesterday 🙂 :

And thank you Billy for helping me out with the event, and for helping keep it going filling in gaps 😀 We kept it going between bites of food and coffee, haha 😀 coffee2
