Playing guitar by the Rhine: any guitar enthusiasts / rock lovers in Basel? :)

Hi guys!
My name is Mary, I come from France, am 28 and have lived in Basel for 2 and a half years now. I love (rock)music and play (folk/classic) guitar. I was actually wondering if there were other guitar enthusiasts out there in Basel, because I would find it great to just meet up together by the Rhine (or anywhere else outside) when the weather is ok, play and / or sing together. Im not a great guitar player nore am the best at playing arpeggios but am doing ok with pretty much any chord. And I have actually found out that some of the best songs have only 4 or 5 chords (but more are of course welcome too!)
I can play any quiete simple thing as long as I have the tabs and practice a little, all depending on the difficulty of the song of course. So we don’t necessarily have to play things we already know and could as well look up for a song's tabs on the internet and then play it together or so, or we could teach each other new stuff.
My music repertoire includes some Nirvana (of course hehe), some Velvet Underground, some Johnny Cash (but can't sing those of Johnny Cash for some reason ), and other classics like House of a rising sun, Help by the Beatles, the cover song of As I went out one morning (Bob Dylan) by Mira Billotte, Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix, Nine Cats by Porcupine Tree (one of my favorite bands) and so on. I wish I could play many many more things!
Do you like rock music as well and enjoy playing your guitar? Would love to hear from you (please send me a PM) and lets arrange something!
Mary

I'm currently working with one of our clients in Basel, so during the week I'm here.
I can bring and play my guitar, I'll leave the voice to good singers!

Just let me know if you want to organize something.
