Well thank you Curteye. I just need to let you know…I’m not chronologically young. I’ll be 60, started playing around 1959 when I was 6. My “youngness” comes from the inexperience but new discovery of the current status of music recording. I find it exciting to be able to do the newer things in music that I was taught is only done with either multi-track recorders and several musicians playing " instruments" or live on a stage or pit…but that was HOW it was done, no other options.
So. Set in my ways is sort of my motto. I think my bias comes from my knowing so many great players. I hate to make it sound like bragging as it is not the way i do things but since we’re here open to world scrutiny.WHat the heck…my musical history goes a long way. Being exposed to some great artists not only as a fan and being there as it happened but thru family. My youth was spent with some guitar greats. I was always so inspired and driven. I was heavily controlled ( lets say…guided) as a kid and was rarely allowed to follow my interests. My guardian had very different career paths pre-determined despite my resistance and genetics.
To see someone sit down and tap keys is admirable and the results are good but to watch someone play melodic runs on a guitar neck, piano keyboard or blow a horn, for me, is such a different talent…maybe it’s more depth of soul ? I’m not sure yet as I never thought about it until typing this sentence. I realize anyone might dispute talents. So maybe that’s not the word
Shoot Getting a little too intense, well hope you get the idea. Maybe it just stubbornness
