Joan Song Circle Etiquette for Dummies (74* d) RE: Song Circle Etiquette for Dummies 23 Apr 00

Funny that The Book seems to be used all the time in some places and not at all in others. A rule might be set forth that participants need to know at least ONE song by heart. I guess people are terrified they might forget the words...and who among us hasn't...if they aren't there to read? The dependence on having The Book reminds me of some sort of church service: "Will the congregation turn to page 47 for the singing of (your favorite song here)." Great to have access to a collection of good songs in one little book (nevermind some word/tune discrepancies)--a good starting place for a newcomer, but for Pete's sake, start by learning just one of them (then another, etc.)!

Besides, it looks really strange to watch a circle of tops-of-heads; faces buried in the pages. Joan
