1. For this 10th Line Studio Jam Session, we took a short drive in the neighborhood to an old church that belongs to some friends of ours. The property having just been sold, we needed to act quickly before the deeds changed hands. We contacted a few people, and within a week we where sitting in the church, trying to get song down. Everybody had their own version of the song to work off of, but after some chords changes and a few corrections, we where all on the same page. A few drinks and a few jokes later, we got serious and where able to get a good track down, all the while been filmed throughout our adventure. This song has been played and is still being played by hundreds if not thousands of musicians everyday. We thought we could take a crack at getting our version down too. It was an awesome evening and we can't wait to do it again, some other time, some other place, and with some other songs.

  2. With a few hours to kill before heading down to Florida, we contacted Jérémy and took the camera out for a little jam session. Having an old EKO bass pedal on hand, we also brought it along for the ride. This jam was filmed in a little antique shop in Bromont, Quebec, Canada. It probably wasn't the first time these antiques heard this song from the Memphis Jug Band.

  3. When we decide on a musician to invite over for a jam, we try and find a song that he/she hopefully knows or has heard. On this one, we thought wrong. Figuring our invitee was of the late 60's generation, we opted for a song from The Grateful Dead. Little did we know, but his musical influences where nothing close to the Dead and he had never heard Truckin' before. Still, we pulled through and had an awesome time jamming this one out. This was filmed at an artist's studio in an ancient tobacco factory. We loved that place. Full of history and offering up it's own kind of charm.

  4. A common remedy for the wintertime blues is to get together with some friends and strangers and jam out some tunes. That exactly what we did on this winter evening. A song was chosen, musicians where called and we gathered together at an underground art gallery to see what we could do with Darktown Strutters' Ball. Of course we decided to go for the full version of the song, and add little part signed Louie Bluei (Howard Armstrong) for good taste. This is what came out.

  5. After sticking to a few more traditional songs as of late, we opted for something newer, but not quite new. We invited our good friend Rico to come down for this song. Also new to the mix was Dany's Hofner bass, which he purchased about 1 week prior to the shooting. Of course, it was his first time playing the instrument, or any other bass live for that matter. We used 1 microphone for the whole group of us, plugged into a Zoom H4N. Our camera woman was Ève Panneton, working with a Canon 5D Markiii. Between learning to play the song together, drinking a bit of beer and "telling lies" as Rico would put it, we took about 3hrs to do the shoot. This is what came from it. Enjoy!

This channel features the Jam Session videos we produce here at 10th Line Studio. Most of the music played is from an era long passed, although we try to incorporate some newer nuances to the songs. The idea is simple. Find some new musicians who don't all necessarily know each other, gather 'em up for a few hours and see if we can make a song live. The song is chosen about 1 week in advance and everybody learns it on their own. When we do gather to play it, the whole process of learning to play the song with each other is filmed and by the end of about 3 hours, we hope to have something to show for it. Once that is done, we edit all the different bits and pieces of the jam and make a short film of it. Enjoy!!
