Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
I disagree with everybody. Dylan plays harp the way he wants to, to get the sound he wants. He's been playing guitar with harp in the rack for fifty or sixty years now; with very little effort, he could play as cleanly as you could wish - it's not that hard. He doesn't want a clean, polished sound. And I don't think he plays "bad" by any means. He plays in a manner that is consistent with and contributes to his overall sound, which is the whole point.
