Thread Name: Phrasing and Willie Nelson
Subject: RE: Phrasing and Willie Nelson
I admire Willie's songwriting, and enjoy his singing on many numbers. For my taste, however, his more expressive and unconventional phrasing on some songs is a real chore to listen to. I find it so hard to follow--just listening--that it distracts me and lessens the enjoyment of the song.
