WE'RE HAVING ANOTHER ON-LINE BUG PyJAMa Jam using Zoom! Join us in our kitchen!
It's FREE and you don't need to be any good. This is the kind of BUG you WANT to catch!
No stinkin' virus is going to keep us down! Don your favourite pyjamas or loungewear, grab a snack, a drink (how about takeout/delivery from the Clocktower Brew Pub), your spouse, kids, pets, and sign in on Zoom.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 15 - Meet & greet 7:45 pm, singing starts at 8:00
WHERE: right in your own home, in your favourite loungewear or pyjamas
THE PDF SONGBOOK AND CHORD CHART FOR THE NIGHT ARE POSTED BELOW - #1 ENTRY ON THE SONG LIST. The songs in the PDF songbook are in the order of play. This time around we'll be displaying the songsheets on your screens and our wonderful Ellen will be scrolling through for all of you. On your own screen, you can resize the songsheet window to take up most of the screen, or if you've got a big screen (we plugged our computer into our TV for Zoom this week) you can resize the songsheet so that you can see more people. Those settings are entirely up to you! You may want to print out the Chord Chart if you're unfamiliar with some of the chords, as you may not always be able to see the chord boxes on the screen. I'll take a poll after to see whether participants prefer seeing the songsheet on the screen, or whether they'd rather handle their own songsheet and see people singing on the screen.
IF YOU CAN'T JOIN US LIVE for whatever reason, no worries! We'll be recording the jam, so that you can play along with us anytime! Be sure to plug an external speaker into your computer to listen so that you'll hear the uBass and get the full effect! In the recording, no one's names appear on the screens! We'll upload the jam video and songbook we use for the evening on our JAM VIDEOS & SONGBOOKS page.
HOW DO I JOIN IN?
First, all you have to do is download ZOOM - it's free: https://zoom.us
MANY, MANY THANKS to Ellen Dickson and Ian Taylor for encouraging Mark and I to try this out, and for being the Zoom wizards behind the screens for this jam!
