Subject: RE: Higher percentage musicians 1900 v 2000
I found what PoppaGator said kinda painful, not because I took it as mean or offensive, but because of my own situation. I'm a non-singer, bad enough in the shower, so paralyzed in front of an audience that you wouldn't want to hear what happens. And I lack the finger dexterity to play; it takes a long struggle to type something readable here. My age and experience says these things aren't apt to change.
I am, however, blessed with a better half who sings beautifully; she plays a little piano, but isn't about to accompany herself on stage.
I can write a decent lyric, imagine a decent melody, pick it out with one finger on piano, and put things together in a computer program.
Some of my songs lend themselves fine to acapella, in which case we're home free. But some of them want accompaniment. I can work up a CD with the computer, and in some settings that is fine. But in other settings that is met with grudging acceptance at best. Feedback, guys?
