GUEST,Willie-O BS: A singer's complaint (41) RE: BS: A singer's complaint 18 Jul 00

And oh, yeah, there's another maxim I live and die by:

In any audience, for any performer (ANY performer), there will be people that like your singing and/or playing, and people that don't. IT DOESN'T MATTER. You might learn something that you could improve on from the latter, but it's just as likely that your natural sound is just not to their taste and they don't even know why.

If there are people listening at all, at least one of them likes you, and that's who you play for. (Even if it's you!)

I discovered a long time ago that most people consider me a good instrumentalist, but my singing voice is not appreciated by all. I think it's improved over the years, as I have found a "home repertoire" that suits my vocal chords. It still doesn't appeal to everyone, and I am fine with that. I don't like everyone elses' singing either, even if I admire their technical ability.
