Subject: RE: virtuosity and traditional music
Sorry for the blank post. That was me---my hand spasmed and posted that on it's own. Part of my malady these days...

From my point of view, it was always the story within a song that was uppermost. I saught mightily to make the tale my reason for singing the song. Any instrumental virtuosity I attained was to PUSH the story to the fore.
