actually use the phrase "close enough for jam" or is that just me being odd?

'Close enough for jazz', I thought? As in musicians tuning up - not needing to be concert pitch, just 'close enough'.

Do you mean jam as in Bob Marley or jam as in strawberry?

I dunno - knowing me I may have deliberately "adjusted" my use of the phrase years back.

I also use "close enough for jazz"; also on occasion "close enough for folk" as it's pretty similar in folk music!

I've also heard a folk musician refer to it as "close enough for country", i.e. C&W music.
