Thread Name: Help: Rip-off of Nic Jones song??
Subject: RE: Help: Rip-off of Nic Jones song??
Never try to pick up on a remark somebody made in a casual conversation three years ago (look at the dates): it is likely that the person who made it will not remember what they had in mind. The rest of the thread explains, I think, the difference between adapting traditional material (even when the traditional source of that material is unacknowledged) and copying an arrangement or interpretation created by another.
