Rude boy. A message to you
What is the most appropriate response to a non trad musician, who you look up to, when they make rude derragatory remarks about our music such as it is "simple 8 measure folk tunes!" ??????????
My first reaction was a bicycle kick to the head but as a master of self discipline, I fell suddenly silent like a deer in the head lights
The truth is, this musician could spend 20 years studying flourishes, rolls and quads etc, and he would just begin to chip the iceberg of our music. Worse yet, is his words, that fall on young ears.
How does one frame an appropriate response that isn’t over reactive and full of broken mustard bottles and tattered wigs?
