Thread Name: BS: Why aren't most Mudcatters musicians
Subject: RE: BS: Why aren't most Mudcatters musicians
MMario: thanks forn the "Look at the dates" comment; I was about to ask if Little Hawk was a 'newbie', what chance for the rest of us!
However, in response to the initial troll. How to define a musician? I can (just about) play a penny whistle. I can, if required pick out a melody (preferably in 'C') on a piano). My sole claim is that I think I'm a musician, with 'Voice' as my instrument.
Of course, if half the effort which went into responding to trolls was expended on DTStudies, or lyrics or origins threads, we might make more headway.
But to quote R A Heinlein (IIRC) when told that 90% of SF was crap. "90% of everything is crap!" it is still woth going through for that last 10%.
