GUEST,Paul slow/learning sessions (55* d) slow/learning sesions 24 May 06

I am asking dose anyone have any experience of running or attending a session that is played at slower speeds, maybe even learning some tunes together. I don't know even if such a thing already happens. I started to go to sessions about a year ago and found it difficult to start playing in public, even if I knew and could play a tune being play it was all ways to first for me. Last weekend at the end of an Irish session two or three of us grouped around and played a few tunes slower to encourage some of the less confident players.
That got me thinking that maybe a regular session or workshop type event out of the public eye/ear might be something there could be some call for. I thought the format could include things like.
        Tunes played at slower pace
        Agreed play list
        Learning new tunes
        Tunes played two or three times
        Taking turns sharing tunes
Any thoughts, experiences or ideas.
