Rob Naylor A Different Kind Of Folk Song (83* d) RE: A Different Kind Of Folk Song 13 Dec 16


Mathew: Another generational difference might be the fact that you think I am making this music to have a career or make money.

It is really just something I made for fun and for my friends. It's facetious music for lighthearted, youthful times.


If that's aimed at my comments, then no, I don't think you're making the music to have a career or make money. Perhaps you think I meant that because I suggested that you did a bit of practice and listened to some other "music to be stoned to" for a bit of inspiration?

That wasn't the case. I also said: A lot like some of the stuff people who weren't very musical to start with might have come out with at stoned jam sessions around a campfire at 2am in 1970....virtually unlistenable to by 3rd parties who weren't part of the group of stoned players/ singers.

Fun and facetious music is fine but even if my teenage self had been there and stoned along with you, I'd have found it unlistenable as it stands. Why post the link and specifically ask for critiques if all you're really looking for is validation of your "youthful light-heartedness"? Great, have a bit of a laugh while you're stoned....but accept that unless you were there at the time and part of it, to most people listening/ viewing second-hand, it's going to sound fairly crap, tbh.
