Happy New Year Everyone,
Hope you all had a great holiday week. We will be starting off the new year with a new tune called Siege of Ennis (suggested by Richard). Here's a link to a recording - https://groups.google.com/d/topic/slowsession/lH1Q-hLX0TY/discussion
Again, this is a session geared towards learning musicians. Some of us play with sheet music, but you're encouraged to (try) pick it up by ear as well. There's not many rules, so feel free to play at a slower pace or choose an unknown tune/song. Just make sure you know the entire tune (so others can learn from you).
On a related note, if you want to start playing at a faster pace, you should head over to Dempsey's (61 2nd Avenue) on Tuesday nights (8pm onwards). Great musicians, friendly atmosphere, big space and beer!
