How do you cope with the drunk session player?
I play whistle, when I can, at a regular session. One particular person (not there every week) plays guitar in his own inimatable style very loud and in a completely different rhythm to, well, just about everything, There is one particular hornpipe that I played once that he took an instant liking to and now insists I play whenever he is there but I am sure it sounds terrible. I am not the leader of this session, far from it, but noone says anything to this guy. Is he really a wonderful guitarist in disguise? Has he been a great player gone gaga? I get the impression that this guy drinks a lot but has serious muso friends. My god this is sounding like the mafia! Should I say something or keep stum.Am I being a PrimeDonut? I know I’m not the best cookie in the box
but should somebody be saying something ? Is there any nice/kind way of telling someone to shut the f*"** up ?
