PeadarOfPortsmouth Versions of songs, and etiquette (67* d) RE: Versions of songs, and etiquette 20 Nov 07

Jeri, I didn't mean to give the impression that Friday crowd was anything but encouraging. As I said, they have been very generous regarding songs and very few have been territorial.

Actually, I don't think I've ever had someone say "that's mine." What has been said is "you may not want to that one because so-and-so does it." The motive is not selfish protectionism, but rather awareness. Out of respect, I will either talk to so-and-so OR at least not do it when they are there.

Some of my favorite conversations with Tom, Linn, Jeff, Bruce, are after a session and I say "I'm thinking of doing this song." I LOVE their input. Not only do I learn about a song's "availability" in the session, but they have steered me to recordings and versions of songs other than the ones I've got that I may want to consider. (Plus the history lesson of the song that Tom can usually offer.)

For a newbie such as myself, that's part of the joy.

And, BTW, I'd wouldn't dream of touching your "Fire Down Below" without asking first. (double entendre intended)   ;-)
