Guidelines for Hot Club Djamming With Ninjam V1

  • Once ready to start the tune, all participants turn on Xmit on the Ninjam channel, and turn off Xmit on the Voice Chat channel.
  • The rhythm starter will give a two bar count-in on the last two bars of the chorus (bars 31 and 32 for a 32 bar pattern, bars 15 and 16 for a 16 bar pattern).
  • The head player will play the head, followed by the agreed upon form. Or the current lead player could call out “Go ” a couple of bars before they complete their lead. Remember that they will hear that one whole chorus later so the current lead won’t hear the next lead start until two choruses later.
  • Just before the head starts, the head player may announce “Back to the head”. After the head has been played, everyone stop playing. There may be up to two choruses of rhythm choruses heard by some participants.
  • Switch back to Voice Chat mode and turn off Ninjam mode after the tune is over in order to converse.
