A whinge on whinging
I feel as if I can say this here, and maybe someone will agree with me, maybe I will get a lecture from someone too.
But I’ve had enough of these ten commandments, and whinging on about noodlers, and jumping on someone’s case because they said "song" instead of "tune" etc.
I think all these corrections are ok to make sometimes, but it really gets old. 90% of us already know the stupid ettiquette, and really, what’s more annoying to me is hearing what I consider marginal musicians prattle on, about this crap.
To me it’s like hey, I don’t care if someone is new, because they are really interested and are having fun, and so am I, I don’t give a fast f*&K if they make few mistakes, infact I find them much less a kill joy, than some bloated self important half-talent going on about ettiquette.
This doesn’t mean it’s not ok to clue in the clueless, I just would like to encourage perhaps some more creative, and polite, and possibly fun inducing, rather than killing.
Ha…. got that off my chest.
