American Pie Guitar Flash Mob Event

Athens Ohio guitarists! Please join me and my students for a GUITAR FLASH MOB!

On Saturday January 28 we will be treating the Market on State to a surprise performance of Don McLean’s “American Pie” and we need as many guitarists as possible to play and sing on each chorus. Please come and help us out – it will be a blast!

If you want to participate, here’s all you need to do:

1. Be willing to play and sing! You will have the opportunity to join in six times.
2. Have a guitar (preferably acoustic) with a guitar strap.
3. Learn the VERY EASY and FUN chorus to American Pie. (Scroll down for music.)
4. Meet us at 10:15am to tune and rehearse the song once or twice.
5. Performance will happen at 11:00am.

PLEASE let me know if you are planning on participating so I know how many people to expect. You can join the event here or contact me via:

Listen to the original recording on YouTube:

We will meet to rehearse promptly at 10:15am in the old Shoebilee location in the Market on State. It is the large vacant store near the indoor playground area at the Tractor Supply Co. end of the mall.

At the rehearsal I will ask for your attention. We will tune up, talk through the performance and then play through the entire song one or two times tops. At 11:00am we will perform in the center of the mall.

The Athens Farmer’s Market and WATH/WXTQ Healthy Living Expo will also be going on so we should have a good audience!
