I initially started writing my own "jam session etiquette guide" but when I searched the web I found a few similar guides, with two in particular that stuck out as being excellent.
- The first is authored by Grant "King" Koeller, who is a contributor to the Sax on the Web Saxophone Discussion Forum.
- The second is authored by Marc-André Séguin of Jazz Guitar Lessons.net, a stunningly great resources for jazz musicians and guitarists specifically. Marc-André has really done an amazing job of building this site over the years.
Although they mostly make common sense, I strongly recommend that you read and understand this etiquette guide in its entirety before participating in jam sessions.
