The assignment for the month was to present new songs that had contrasting sections. Welcome to new attendee Andrew.
It was a very open-ended assignment for the month: Just “Write and present a song.”
A great night of sharing songs. No constructive critiques this month; just entertainment.
The assignment for the month was to present new songs in alternate tunings.
The September 2023 meeting! The theme to include in new songs this month was to mention any sense (like smell or sound).
We made it in person! After nearly 3.5 years of Zoom-only meetings, this was our first attempt to gather at a member’s home; the previous in-person meeting was way back in February 2020. The host thought maybe only 3 people would show up (summers have traditionally low attendance, and several regular members have moved away from the Greater Toronto Area). But! We ended up being a robust group of 10. The evening went late and everyone seemed to enjoy it in its entirety. In September, we will return to Zoom, and then try another in-person meeting in October. Contact us if you wish to join either; all are welcome.
The theme for songs this month was minimalism. Next month August will be the first in-person meeting in over 3 years! Message us for more info if you wish to attend in Toronto 2nd Friday of August.
Some surprisingly pretty songs came out of this month’s optional exercise, which was simply, “Include a riff in your song.”
As usual, we shared our songs live and gave one-another positive and constructive feedback.
The optional assignment was to write and present a song entitled, “I Didn’t Know That.” As usual, we provided compliments and constructive criticism following each offering. Message us if you ever wish to join.
