GUEST,Greycap Folk Club Manners (1109* d) RE: Folk Club Manners 19 Oct 08


Dave McC. So very, very well put.
I can say no more, except, maybeas follows:
Don't go to a folk club to do your practising. We can do without that.
Learn the bloody song by heart, at home, and then, when you are absolutely sure you are ready, do it really well in public.
That'll be great. You will have a great feeling of achievement, well-earned, too.
There is absolutely no shame in not knowing the song by heart.
The problem lies in reading the words off a crib-sheet and not knowing all the chords properly, people don't want to hear you practise on their time, they really, really don't.
I'm talking from 45 years of folk club experience.
