Central Florida Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitar Song Circle

Musicians gather monthly on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 P.M. til 8:30 P.M. in the community room of the Winter Park Public Library  (460 E. New England Ave. Winter Park, FL 32789 for the Central Florida Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitar Song Circle. The public is invited to stop in and enjoy the music. I stopped in to sketch. This was a relaxing evening in which each musician in turn would perform a piece and other musicians could join in if the mood was right.

Any person interested in acoustic fingerstyle guitar is welcome no players can attend if they wish to listen and bring any friends along. All levels of players can join in because everyone will be exposed to many styles and levels of skills. The circle is very casual. They sit in a circle and share one at a time.

The group recently established some guidelines. By default, if it is your turn to play, then others in the circle are welcome to join in and play with you, as long as they don't drown you out. If you do not wish to have accompaniment that is OK, but you must tell people this before you start playing.

For me this was a relaxing, casual sketch opportunity. I did two sketches on this evening and it would be nice to return to do more. Everyone is literally seating in a large circle as if around a large camp fire and each song sets the mood for the next. Check the groups Facebook group page for the next song circle.
