buddhuu Finger in Ear - what's all that about? (68* d) RE: Finger in Ear - what's all that about? 24 Jun 10

I'm assuming that all of the last three "Guests" were Geoff. Apologies to him if I'm mistaken.

Well, as the term "have a go" is verbatim the wording I used above, I'll assume that your response was, at least in part, to my post.

You, sir, may kiss my bottom. You assume that you know the contexts in which we all participate/perform. We are not all denizens of anal, elitist folk clubs. Some of us provide informal, relaxed, INCLUSIVE pub sessions aimed at building and reinforcing community values through music and fun. Some of us welcome people at all levels of ability and encourage them to participate and to develop.

But just because it's primarily for the craic and the camaraderie doesn't mean that we don't do our best. If my best is assisted by sticking a finger in my ear then I will do just that - while raising a finger on the other hand in your direction.

What's more, how dare you insult good singers by implying that their performance is of less worth than that of an instrumentalist? I'm an instrumental musician more than a singer, but even I find that offensive. I have been moved to tears by singers (in a good way) on many occasions. Instrumentalists rarely, if ever, have managed the same. In what way is a singer in any way a lesser being than some jumped up Yngwie Malmsteen analogue with more chops than heart?

Nah, up yours, pal.

To innocent bystanders, I apologise for lapsing back into robust mode.
