ACOUSTIC Music, Anyone?

No matter your skills or interests, there's a way for you to participate in the creation and manifestation of Black Rock City, both at the event and year-round.

Aw
I don't jam with people much, I'm more of a record on my computer and show no-one type. But I'd love to acoustic jam with some people if they have a spare guitar around.
I'd invest in a I-don't-care guitar but I'm traveling across the country and back and need to travel light.
Peace, love, intellectual stimulation, and good times!

I'm bringing more or less the gear for a small band - guitar, keyboard, electronic drum kit*, amp, mixer, mics. I don't play anything myself but I plan to haul the gear around in a wagon looking for people willing to jam. I'm calling it "band on the run" 'cause that's how old I am. Got a thread on it over here http://eplaya.burningman.com/viewtopic.php?t=29504

*The "electronic drum kit" is one of those all in one yamaha types - not real high end but probably good enough for the purpose. Keyboard is old cheap casio. Amp is a Roland street, mixer is behringer - all battery operated. Guitar is a strat knockoff. I'll probably bring a digitech multi effects pedal too.

I'd definitely mess around if no one else was.

Hi everyone.

This year will be my first BM experience and was really excited by how many people are interested in playing some music.

I have a quick question. Above all other instruments I am a bassist. Will any camps offering a place to play music have a bass for use? I am bringing an acoustic 6-string, but don't want to bring my acoustic bass (it's large and expensive).

So...anyone bringing a bass?

Anyone coming this year who plays Irish traditional music?

I play (and make) the Uilleann (Irish) pipes. I'm bringing my C-set of pipes for sure, maybe my concert pitch set as well. Will have my penny whistles and bodhran drum also.

I play mostly English dance tunes (Morris / ECD), but I also play a bunch of Irish and Scottish. I tend not to be able to play at Irish Dance speeds, which is why I don't play at the Ceilidhs, but I can bang out a tune or two. I'll be bringing my Manjo (or Banjolin if you prefer), and probably a bodhran (rhymes with Moron, eh?) and a bunch of bones.

Ironically enough, I'll be staying in Hushville, so no jamming at my place!

I shall make Celtic or medeival music welcome at Barbarian Camp. (3:00 and Fossil.)
Fancy a taste of Tullamore Dew? Play me a jig, reel, estampie or pavane!

The pipes may have trouble behaving in the dry heat I am sad to say.

The more I read about Barbarian camp, the more I think I will find myself there.

I would suggest that you look for yourself in the area where you lost yourself. Just more of the common sense that us Civilized Bastards have.
