FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ARE KIDS ALLOWED?
Yup. Those ages 10 + up. We have a robust t(w)een community!
WHAT IF I DON’T PLAY GUITAR?
Don’t play? Two options: 1) take this opportunity to learn a few chords 2) come to hang, witness, and have a good time. You might even find yourself singing!
WILL I BE OKAY PLAYING WITH OTHER GUITARISTS WHO MIGHT BE BETTER THAN ME?
Guitarists, feel free to come with no practice at all, as the chords and lyrics will be projected on site. However, if you’d like to download the charts in advance, they will be available on our website a couple weeks before the event.
ANYTHING SPECIAL I SHOULD BRING?
If you’re a guitarist, please remember to bring an acoustic guitar and a strap, plus a soft case to avoid the pesky case-check line.
