Re: What's most/least important in music
The rare Caddy thread!
In addition to the obvious, (feel, timbre, melody etc.) I go for the human emotion aspect of music. When I feel the song pinpoints and conveys a basic human emotion, it's a winner to me no matter how dissonant or rhythmless or uncatchy.
Of course to have the human emotion aspect of music combined w/ technical facility, a great timbre, and a seasoned, mature musical feel, I pretty much wet my pants.
