No challenge jams are currently scheduled.

Maybe you have passed the beginner or intermediate stage and are up for a challenge...this is the jam for you!  We learn more difficult pieces of music, play in parts, learn interesting and uncommon chords, fingerpick and just about whatever you would like to learn, this jam will take you to the next level in no time.
