I play almost exclusively at church. I'm not into going to bars. The only other group close by is an open jam session for bluegrass. They don't meet often or regular and they meet at a church anyway.
By joining my Sunday morning church band I get to play every week and if I mess up everyone is still smiling and encouraging.
Where do you find to play?
BTW... I'm in central Ohio if anyone wants to get together or knows of a group to have fun.
