Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Does this really have to come to personal attacks?

Regarding Dylan's guitar/harmonica playing: They're a lot like his voice, I guess; they aren't for everybody. I mean, music's all subjective. Personally I like Dylan's guitar playing. Most of the time it's not fancy, but it does what it needs to do, and he can play some really good stuff. His first album is one of my favorites, and he plays some great blues on it. His harmonica playing, while I agree it is not technically perfect and sometimes is borderline off-key, is the reason I play the harmonica and I still like it. It's good enough for me. Heck, I even like his singing.
