Marje Throwing away the crutch.... (184* d) RE: Throwing away the crutch.... 01 Jun 13

Or how about reading the lyrics from a CD cover? That way you don't even have to prepare a crib-sheet or write out the words, you just grab a CD as you leave home. And then you stumble over the words because you can't see them properly, and also because you haven't bothered to work out how the syllables fit to the rhythm of the tune.

I agree it's not quite as bad as iPads and smartphones being used to generate lyrics. But probably even worse than this is messing around with smartphones checking your e-mails when it's not your turn to sing, or (at a session) where it's a tunes or song you happen not to be joining in with. Just plain bad manners, it seems to me. If you want to check your e-mails or Facebook, go away and do it somewhere else.

Then again, it might be permissible if the performer is reading the wodrs from a CD cover...

Grumble, grumble, mutter mutter ...
