Songlist (12th Feb 2019)

Now we’ve had our first jam and we’ve got a better idea of everyone’s abilities, we’re going to try arranging upcoming jams into two sessions, with a break to restock drinks and have a chat in the middle.

The sessions will be as follows:

  • 1st Session: A set list of easy songs aimed more at beginners (see below)
  • 2nd Session: An open session with no fixed list and songs that are a bit more challenging, call out to request a song or send us a request beforehand
