OK folks, we've had a few forum members sharing their playing live on http://www.streetjelly.com for a number of years - in fact since around August 2014 - (even raw beginners, like myself at the time, took part) but over the last year or so, interest seems to have dwindled.  The StreetJelly platform was originally drawn to our attention by @Barry - good man, and thank you brother - although his own musical journey has now moved on to greater and better things!

Some good time back I started an event called "Strings on Sunday" on SJ and tried to make it clear that, from the title and when I started the thread here, that anyone interested in playing and sharing (generally with forum friends from here - either in the audience or actually taking part), should just "jump in, and advertise their intention to play" on any Sunday, without myself or Mandy or Barry actually having to say "let's have another SoS get-together".

Unfortunately (and well, that's not a criticism - it's just life) - folks can have other demands on their time, even on a Sunday - and without being "gently prodded" by myself or Mandy or Barry - no-one else ever really "ran with it" (and I perfectly understand that) to set up, or propose another Sunday fiddling get-together.  For the shows we did manage to do (hmm, possibly 10 or 12), we usually managed to get between 5 to 10 folks from the forum to join in the audience, and between 3 to 5 of us actually taking part to play a 30 or so minute session - pretty darned good actually when you think about it - and a LOT of fun !!!

Anyway, since "Strings on Sunday" sort of died a death, I'm still keen to do the occasional show - and I've dropped the "Strings on Sunday" show title, and it's just my own show this time round - titled "Freestyle Fiddling" - and I've scheduled it on SJ for 4pm next Sunday - that's MY TIME UK (I suppose that's between 8am and 11am USA depending on your own local timezone over there). Here is how *I* see it as advertised on SJ - but - if YOU go to SJ and look for the event I have scheduled, you will see the time shown in your OWN timezone - and NOT the 4pm as shown in the (UK timezone) image below (clever, eh ??? ) 

Feel free to either join in the audience or EVEN BETTER - TAKE PART - and if you do  care to take part as a player - I plan to play and chat for 30 minutes - so schedule your own SJ show 30 minutes after me in whatever timezone you are.  Once again - unless you are in the UK - the REAL TIME the show is on, is ONLY visible by going to StreetJelly to see the schedule, and will always be shown as a time, local to you, and NOT the time shown in the captured image below which is local to the UK - hope you can join in !  (or at least be in the audience !)

@BillyG 

I would consider it, but I fear posting my own playing online.  I really don't like to record myself, although I do know of its benefits for practice.

That is not a problem at all Pete - I completely understand, and appreciate your interest - besides - you can always join the audience in the chat window without having to broadcast video.  Frankly, the audience participation in the text-chat window can be just as much fun, if not more-so, than most of the playing !!!!!!

Maybe see you there in the chat if  the time fits-in with your own plans  thumbs-up

I should be able to pop in to watch 😀 

Chat participation is part of the fun doing the shows. If it's just quiet, you feel like you're just playing for the air, haha.

Unfortunately, my doc has put me on the bench for a couple of weeks, so I can't take part. But I'll see if I can catch the show on Sunday. thumbs-up

I'd like to get back on StreetJelly at some point. But I've been limited by a shoulder injury starting not long after my one StreetJelly show, and I moved into a new apartment where I still have boxes in my living room after a year, mostly because shoulder pain keeps me from completely unpacking...
