About the Virtual Open Mic:
- Due to concerns about public gatherings with the coronavirus situation, our Monthly Open Mics have gone online with Zoom.
- Everyone is Welcome: Audience and performers of all levels: beginner to professional: all are warmly received and encouraged.
- Acoustic Only: Finger picking nylon string styles (leave the Les Paul in its case). Soloists and ensembles of any combination. We occasionally welcome other instruments such as violin, flute, ukulele, etc.
- Maximum Time per Performer: 10 minutes
- Host: Melody Kingman, President, South Bay Guitar Society
- Playing Order: In the order submitted using the above form (First come, first to perform, except that those under 18 can go first if desired).
- Setup Recommendation for Performers:
- An external microphone (such as a Zoom USB digital microphone) is recommended for improved sound quality, though not required. The Zoom H1n works very well as an example. However, if that is not in your budget, we understand; the microphone in your computer or mobile device will work just fine.
- We recommend that you ensure that you have the latest version of Zoom by starting the Zoom app, go to the Zoom / Check for Updates menu item and run the update or go to Download Zoom Update.
- Finally, we recommend that you turn on Original Sound while you are performing and turn if off when not performing.
