Default Re: Canning a guitar player

Is it wrong to laugh at tales of singer songwriters who forget their own lyrics? Or about a soft-hearted musician getting an upset failed auditioner up the duff? hahaha. The things people do ...

Agree with tea and sympathy bestowed on DED ... I would have been sooo spitting chips.

Larry, as a dabbler I know those issues with authenticity like the guitarist had. There's a school of thought that if it's a twelve-bar or a slow 6/8, then it's blues :)

Not that there's anything wrong with bastardised blues, which can sound great in its own right (eg. Zep) but specialist blues players are their own breed like hardcore players of jazz, ragtime, folk, Afro-Cuban, metal, etc. Only the very most talented dabblers gain admission ...
