But I also think its wrong to look down on others who make music in genres/types we don't personally like. Unfortunately I see it too much (not necessairly here).
Last night at practice for the acoustic 'trio' (the third guy on mando has made only 1 practice out of the last 8 I've been at), I was talking about the short solo set I did Saturday night at a local bar during my friend's show. The defacto trio leader and his brother (bass) had talked about going over there, but they didn't show up. 'Leader' asked what songs I did, I listed them, and after each one (except the last) he said 'hate it'
- I was going to call him out on why he said that, but then figured discretion was better. Confirms with me, though, that I won't stick around with these guys once something better materializes.
The set list I did Saturday (all solo on acoustic):
Tupelo Honey - Van Morrison
Things We Said Today - Beatles
Friend of the Devil - Grateful Dead
Time - Pink Floyd
Signs - 5 Man Electrical Band/Tesla - when I named this one, 'leader' didn't recognize it at first and then said something about Sting covering it
