Why join? Membership is free - once you are a registered member you will receive emails from the SOUP Steering Committee about events, workshops and important news. You can also join the SOUP FaceBook page to inner-act with other Wednesday evening jam enthusiasts. The FaceBook page is public, not a closed group.
Songs At the jam sessions, leaders and strummers use the SOUP Songbook to help the group develop a foundation of songs which we can sing and strum with confidence. We try to balance the introduction and teaching of new songs with the pure enjoyment of flipping through a book with over 150 plus familiar songs. New songs are often tested at the Wednesday night jam sessions even though they are not part of the official Songbook. Remember, nothing is stopping you from finding songs on YouTube and playing along.
Songs are added to the official Songbook only after they have been tested at the Wednesday night jam sessions for a period of time and after they've been reworked to make sure they follow the formatting protocol for our Songbook. It's not as simple as just adding a song-- there are literally hours spent on one song to format, test and finalize a song for the Songbook.
