This coming Tuesday, May 12th we will have our next NSAI Charlotte meeting. As always, it will be held from 7:00 til 9:30 pm at The Well, at 220 Main Street in Pineville.
This month we are very excited to have Mike Alicke presenting a lesson on chord progressions for songwriters. Mike is a Berklee College of Music graduate and award-winning singer/songwriter/guitarist (2012 Summit Showcase Songwriter of the Year, and Nominated 2013 Songwriter of the Year by The Charlotte Music Awards) with many years of performing, touring and recording experience. He is an amazing guitarist. Mike says that he plans to “spend some time showing how to shake up the normal cowboy chords and then show how to move on to more advanced forms, progressions, inversions, tunings, etc. I will move at the class pace and won’t bog them down with too much jargon.” Mike will perform some of his original songs using some of the chord progressions he has taught us. It promises to be a very educational and fun lesson. Bring your guitar so you can follow along.
At the end of the meeting there will be time for song critiques, so bring any song you are working on or have finished and twenty copies of the lyrics. Also, please feel free to bring guests to any and all meetings. You can always count on us providing snacks, coffee and water.
Our goal is for us to go home having learned something, shared some music, been heard, and feeling better than when we arrived each month. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday evening!
Steve, Misty, Fiona & Bobby
