Big Al Whittle The current state of folk music in UK (2105* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 14 Nov 19

well true enough - but you don't learn the craft in five minutes. you have to go about making an idiot and bore of yourself, and stick at it - to find out what YOU can do. you start off copying others - but if your heroes are any good - you find that you can't do what they do - because you're not them. But hopefully by doing something you learn what are your strengths.

everyone starts somewhere.

Out of the hundreds of guitar lessons I gave - only two got to the point where they achieved international recognition. But scores went on to become proficient guitarists.

Some poor sods are never much cop, but they've enjoyed themselves a bit. Isn't that some sort of achievement for them? Happiness...isn't that worthwhile? I think next to that, the meaning of fplksong is very small beer.
