I've thought about this a while back. I finally decided that my definition of a musician is one who can take his/her instrutment/s of choice and play most any style, with most anyone, anytime. I guess as example, a studio musician, who has to play different styles w/ different people, all the time. They have it all down technically, if they also have feeling in it, so much the better. This don't mean i think they're better at making music. I seen alot of people w/ less technical skills than I (if that's possible), and make more "music" than any 3 folks. And if this makes sense, good, if not, sorry 'bout that!!!
