Thread Name: Chorus songs for ballad singers
Subject: RE: Chorus songs for ballad singers
"If you don't want people joining in on folk music, sing in the bloody shower or all alone in your living room."
Bump - all solo singing banished forever in one fell swoop - wouldn't theis be called "folk-policing" if it was made by "a finger-in-the-ear purist?"
There is another type of arrognce with joining in - on choruses.
Walter Pardon (then approaching 70), was forced to give up singing0 two of his favourite songs in public because of insensitive audiences taking up the chorus at a different pace tht he had chosen; he described it as being like restarting the song at the beginning of each verse" - listen to what the bloody singer is doing!!!
I sometimes think some people come to clubs to listen to themselves - rather like Greg B judging by his arrogance
