An Invitation from The Reading Circle

The Reading Circle, an initiative and ongoing commitment of participants from the Introduction To The Guitar Circle with RF held in 2021, has announced its sixth series:

You are invited to join the virtual Reading Circle focused on The Guitar Circle book by Robert Fripp. With Series 1 through 5 completed we are continuing with Series 6, which is open to any who wish to participate. Read on!

In this sixth Reading Circle series, we will be covering Dear Disgruntled Crafty to Chapter 7 over ten weekly meetings. We are fortunate to have the support of Guitar Circle staff, and hope to welcome some guest attendees.

Who is organizing this?
Bob Antia, Catherine Johnson, and Darren Henderson.

Who is invited?
This invitation is being posted in GC Facebook groups and sent to those who participated in the previous Reading Circle, along with those who attended the Guitar Circle events in Glen Cove. Importantly this reading group is open to anyone who wishes to join. (If you aren’t a previous participant in the RC, or have never attended a Guitar Circle event, please mention this when emailing us.)

New to The Reading Circle
This book doesn’t necessarily need to be read in order, so please jump right in with us. If you have any questions, the group will assist. 

When will we meet?
The group will have weekly one hour Zoom meetings on Saturdays at the U.S. times of 2:00 PM EST / 1:00 CST / 11:00 AM PST — beginning on January 6th 2024 and going through to March 9th.

What will be covered?
We will be reading from the section titled Dear Disgruntled Crafty through to Chapter 7 (pages 325 to 424), with further plans to be decided once this series is completed.

What is asked from you?
Availability, participation, and goodwill. In their own time each participant is asked to read between nine and eleven pages each week, which we’ll then meet to discuss as a group. We ask that you commit to this for the ten-week period to the best of your ability.

If you haven’t done so already, you are asked to purchase The Guitar Circle Book by Robert Fripp, available here:

Burning Shed (U.K.):
(If this presents a financial hardship for you, please let us know.)

How do I sign-up?
Please send an email to so that we can add you to the participant’s list, and send you Zoom meeting information (replies will only go to the organizers).

• Please include your preferred email address and whether you wish to share your email address with other participants or not.
• If this is your first Guitar Circle-related experience, please mention this in your email.

Previous participant in The Reading Circle?
Even if you were part of the prior series, please note we ask that you sign-up anew for Series 6.

We would love for you to join us!

Warmest wishes,

Bob, Catherine, and Darren
