In a city of intense work and play, endless options are presented daily in the search of the perfect after work hang out, extra activities, a life of your own outside the office.For those with a little guitar knowledge, or even proficient at the instrument, a fantastic blend of practice and entertainment has arrived; Happy Hour Guitar has been created and the buzz is building up around the city’s guitar community. Professional adults leave the office eager to hang out with other guitarists and improve their playing while having an amazing time. Here is the scenario. It is 5:31pm–the doors of the elevator shut close and you descend into real life, it is Friday. Instinctively reaching for the tie, loosening up face muscles into a relaxed grin, it is time for a beer. Holding the pick in your pocket you think to yourself: “I’ll play Hotel California even better today”, and the grin widens. “Last week’s practice was so much fun, I wonder if Jessica (is that her name?) will come and jam today?” You pay for your beers at the corner deli and head over to guitar world, what a perfect way to break between work and dinner, it is time for Happy Hour Guitar.You get in your seat, your personalized coaster shows you have six sessions left, a room full of talk, guitar tuning, random rhythms, bottles opening, it is time to get settled. You pick up a guitar and all play a beautiful collective G, it is in tune. The room quietens as the playlist is announced. Lights dim and the first song is cued up. A brief explanation of the chords and strum in the song is welcomed as you reassure confidence brushing up on the Fmaj7 chord. The video is fired up and the synchronized strum frenzy begins, it is time for Guitaraoke. As the first song ends, a cheerful burst of spontaneous applause and laughter emerges, yes, give yourself a hand, it is time to shine.
