How come nobody does jams anymore? Besides me nobody has run a standard jam in a couple months at least. Wigrock has been doing the pass the ball and I have been running mix jams and that is it. The last jam I set up didn't even get enough people and is sort of running out of steam it seems.

Did people get bored with them or what? What gives?

Yeah, I don't really like the battles. Of course, I always loose really badly.

Hey there!

been looking for a jam for quite some time now as well.
Now where i'm finally feeling confident to participate theres nothing there ^^.

Well I came along some nice sounding rhythms the last few weeks; if just the guitar is enuff to start something (?) i'd post it here to maybe start a jam.

Greetings!

Anybody can start and produce a jam. I've done a dozen or so....but lately I've started a new job where I am on the road all the time...so while I can log on and post, I can't work on jams very much. Also I need some good BT's to starts a jam and don't have time to make any....so that's always a problem.

In about 2 weeks....my personal schedule will be cleared a bit (I hope) and I'll throw out a couple of jams for June...like the old days.

Yeah - I think the battles have stolen the steam from the Jams - kind of a bummer really. I'm not much into the battles either. I prefer to collaborate and produce something fun and unique. I havent hosted a jam in quite a while - perhaps I should get off my lazy ass and do one. In fact I think I will search my BT collection for something inspiring and see what I come up with.

I have already checked it out bro - nothing personal, but that BT just didnt inspire me. Don't worry though Ill be hosting a jam soon.

AND - I was thinking of something that might stir up some interest too - maybe it's already been done - I dont know. How about "Jam Battles"? It would be the best of both worlds - a jam where people collaborate on a common tune, and then once its posted a poll is set up to determine the winning soloist from within the jam. How about that idea?

Just my .02.....

NP RJ....many times I hear a BT and don't have anything that comes to mind. You can set up a jam and attach a poll to the finished product and get votes......might get people going.....they seem to like the battle section a lot.
