I'm going digress slightly and be overly picky here - I really don't think any offense was meant - but...
Several posts refer to "Singers" separate from "Musicians".
Wouldn't it be more accurate to say "Singers" and "Instrumentalists"? (Or maybe "Players" - after a few rounds I may stumble over 5-syllable words). After all, whoever is making music is a Musician. Right?
Do you think maybe the practice of referring to instrumentalists as Musicians and to vocalists as Singers could propogate some (perhaps unconscious) feelings that singers are somehow second-class citizens, below the "real" Musicians? Is that a thought-pattern you (any of y'all) want to foster & grow?
Just food for thought. Not accusing anybody of anything.
