Very novice musician (tenor banjo) located in Ashland, VA seeks others with an interest in similar music. Not looking to start a band or anything (not good enough!). Would just like to jam on some tunes and practice music. I'm pretty basic. Interested in Irish/Celtic, New Orleans jazz, folk music, jug band, ragtime, tin-pan-alley, gypsy jazz, novelty songs, country blues, standards. Beginners more than welcome!!! (I'm NOT really into generic classic rock or generic bluegrass).

Any ukulele, bass or accordion players out there?

I also like bands like Grateful Dead, Phish, Dr. Dog, My Morning Jacket, Ween, MGMT, O'death, Camper Van Beethoven...so I wouldn't mind playing some of these tunes as well (on tenor banjo!).

Cheers.

This Folk Music Calendar lists most of the sessions around the Central Virginia area, and there are a number of Irish/Celtic. Email jim.mahone at comcast.net to get on the mailing list. Also check out Richmond Folk Music Society.

thanks. i'm the one who posted the orginal message.
i forgot to put my email address: sixwatergrog (at) gmail.com. best to email me directly if you're interested in playing some tunes.

i know jim mahone - i used to go to a jam he attends. i'm kinda looking for a practice partner - someone either more advanced or also a beginner - with whom I can slowly play tunes without it having to be in a public setting or session format. nothing against that, but i learn tunes from sheet music and tablature. at the public jams tunes are sometimes played too fast and unless you know how to play the tune, as a beginner, there's not much you can do besides listen. i haven't developed the ability to play by ear, or even pick out the chords and fakebooks are frowned upon usually. it would be nice to play in a setting where it's OK to mess up a tune, or disect/talk about it, and practice it over and over again, rather than just whizz through them one after another.

i will check out the richmond folk music facebook. thanks for that link.
