Not that jam nights are a contest, and I know that there are many posts regarding jam night etiquette but....... How do you really succeed or at least "look good"? Learn loads of songs (but you can't learn them all)? loads of riffs? Should you just wade in and screw up, or go as a spectator to check it out? Maybe nothing matters. I see one guy who is always at jams. 20% of his notes are off but he plays loads of them and everyone thinks he's great. Am I expecting too much of myself?
