Subject: RE: BBC TV Guitar Series
IB, I really don't want to get into a long altercation about this, but it wasn't your championing of Derek Bailey per se that made my hackles rise, it was your statement that he was "one of the FEW guitarists" whose playing made any real sense to you.

I am literally unable to count the number of guitarists I have heard whose playing makes real sense to me, but it must run into three figures, easily, and trust me, I am not easily, if ever, fooled by guitar players, I can spot a poser and a charlatan at 100 paces.

But you have seen only a FEW guitarists whose playing made real sense to you (among them Derek Bailey, ffs ) so do forgive me if I think that you are being just a tad elitist.
