10 years running.
June 23rd and Sept 8th.
As per tradition, it's the same as always and shall be ..
A week Saturday before the Canada Day long weekend and then again a week Saturday after the Labour Day long weekend.
Great times had by all in the past.
From beginner to semi-pro and those of us who think we know how to play guitar.
Nice country drive to Elora.

For directions, please PM me.



Look for this marker.



There will be extra parking next door.

The beauty about these jams is that there are no rules.
However .. the past few jams have gotten a little bit too loud.
Please contain yourselves and keep your volumes down.
Lean your amps back if possible. Remember, your ankles don't have ears.
Also, if you do plan to bring pedals, try to limit them to essentials.
The floor tends to become a tripping hazard.
Smoking outside the barn only.

Life is crazy busy right now for my two boys. I think I will have to take the train.

I think I will take it to Guelph. Would someone be willing and able to pick me up from the station?

The countdown begins! I am really excited. I live for this.

Carrots and apples for the horses. I bet the little colt has grown into a magnificent mare. Can’t remember the colts name.

Anticipation! Now my motors running. Coffee

acoustic jam often takes place somewhere at a distance from the sound pressure levels
Last Sept they were on the front porch of the house.

GO trains don't go as far as Guelph on weekends. You can call to verify. 1-888-438-6646
I do believe that VIA does though (from Union Station).
As @greco mentioned, hopefully, someone your way will offer a ride?

I have to work on the 23rd but will try to come out at night.

Is there a wattage limit? Rephrase, can there be a wattage limit? I’ve brought 18/20W Marshalls & have been drowned out. If volumes are at a reasonable level, you should be telling me to turn down.

I'm probably going to bring my Tone King, which is 45W, but it does have an attenuator.

If there's going to be a wattage limit then I'm hooped. I only own one amp. I did build an attenuator for it so I have no problems keeping the volume low. :)

I tend to bring SS. That easy for me to get a nice sound at low volume.
I once brought my Ironhorse and had that set at 15w.
It was more than loud enough at 1/3 volume.
Mind you, it was probably due to my f-clone cab with the side ports that helped.

As I stated before, your ankles don't have ears.
There sometimes tends to be up to 5 guitarists playing at one time.
This makes the space tight and you wind up standing right in front of your amp, which you can't hear.
So .. one person turns up which causes his neighbour to do the same because now he can't hear himself.
Halfway through a song, everyone's turned up a notch or two.
Meanwhile, everyone standing FOH are being blasted.
The drums barely come through along with vocals.
Gerry tries to compensate by turning them up before squealing feedback kicks in.

Remedy; tilt back your amp so that you can hear it.
Or do like @Hamstrung and get a wireless so that you can play from outside the barn. lol.

Gentlemen, and lady, we need to make an effort to make this jam enjoyable for all.

I did the tilt thing at last fall and it made a world of difference. I had another commitment that evening so I never set up to play until after 9:00 pm. The crowd was thinning bu then but we managed to get good volume levels for us playing the "late shift". I'm going to build a little angle stand for this June. :)
