Sessions-The truth for those willing to face it.
I am growing weary of threads here relating to limiting guitars and bodhrans.
Weary because within the first three posts it degenerates into "I was at a session, 3 bodhrans/guitars and two of those were dreadful".
Now imagine you were at a session and there were three fiddles. Imagine two of those were dreadful. Would you be submitting a thread suggesting fiddles should be limited to one a session? You can insert pipes/flute or whatever instead of fiddle.
Try and answer honestly.
In short, bad PLAYERS are the main problem, not the instrument. As I said in the guitar thread, 6 guitars and one fiddle would not be much fun.
However imagine time again. There are about twenty people playing at a session. Three guitars, all top class, brilliant backing just as you prefer, and two absolutely fantastic bodhran players, playing just the way you like it. Fifteen other melody players, giving it dixie. In short a session resembling an orchestra. Great music flowing and mighty craic.
Would you enjoy that scenario? Again, try and answer truthfully.
