Right and Wrong
I was told by benhall1 that because I had learned a tune from sheet music I was playing it wrong, and if I had the audacity to change a single note I was playing the tune even more wrong.
This got me to thinking, Is there only one "correct" way to play a tune? If so, who gets to decide which version is the "correct" one?
I have actually been to a few sessions and and I never saw two people playing exactly the same version of a tune, so were they all playing "incorrect" versions, or was one of the players right and everyone else wrong?
And finally, if sheet music is flawed by nature and everyone I know plays a different version, just how should I go about finding the "correct" version?
