I am meeting someone I meet on Craigslist to jam with tomorrow, get coffee and hit some records stores to get to know each other and see if out music tasted match… yeah it sounds like a date >_< haha

I never play with another guitarist before and it sounds like he hasn’t either.

What should I bring other than my guitar?
What should I expect from it?
What should I keep in mind?

Anything that will help me on my next step on my guitar quest

Thanks

Just talk and jam. If you guys have similar tastes you should get along real well. My first jam sessions with people are always pretty simple things, but we can get an idea if we can fit together well. You both have to be able to follow and lead (playing the parts that is, not in terms of lead or rhythm). I've been with some guitarists that are phenomenal by themselves, but when they try to play with someone they can't keep in time with them and its just a mess.

So basically just chill out and have a good time and see what happens.

The key thing is to relax and have a good time. A lot of times, if you haven't played around people a lot, it's easy to be nervous, or put to much emphasis on showing them that you know what you're doing. So..if you do feel nervous, etc, remind yourself that it's no big deal, and try to just relax and enjoy yourself.
