GUEST,Scoville Origins: How derivative is too derivative? (23) RE: Origins: How derivative is too derivative? 07 Oct 06

Not quite sure what you're asking, but I always get irritated when people get to the point of trying to recreate exactly even the lead-in chatter, whoops, etc. (common in old-time music) that appeared on the "original" recording from which they learned a song. I mean, learning somebody's good version of a song is one thing, but if I want to hear how the Skillet Lickers did it, I'll go listen to the Skillet Lickers, not so-and-so's cloned recording.
