But he could still play, and to watch it, I had to sit through 5 minutes of BORING music.
The band had big video screens behind them, and were playing for a huge crowd, but I couldn't help thinking to myself, "Why would anyone pay to watch this concert?"
Oh, the guys were technically proficient and all, and the music was ok . . .
But it was BORING!
It was a slow song, and all it was was a guy doing scales on a kinda standard sounding progression.
Why even bother?
This kinda music just sounds like a personal practice for a lead player.
When would it ever end, and the actual music start?
Apparently a lot of people are really interested in simple-simple "nothing music," nowadays . . .
My question is this: have you people also found this to be true?
That is - music played really well - but waaay below your interest level?
