Subject: RE: Advice re. House Concerts
IMHO excelence in performance is not necessary. Performance is necessary. Currently the problem is not enough performance and not enough playing by people overall. Over professionalization has played a role in bringing this about. Yes - you do have to spend time to get really good. but do you have to be really good? I dont think so. Nice but not essential.

If you are a good listener and knoweledgable in the genre you will be able to benefit from any rendition of a tune. Take a look at my pages and some very good quotes on the topic.

It is better to have a tune played poorly than none at all.
