Thread Name: Using a music stand
Subject: RE: Using a music stand
Depends on the gig! (I'm with you Sorch)

The folk 'genre' does tend frown on them - most learn music by ear (or lots anyway). Performance can be different without them -depands on what why wher and how!

Me - I've got classical roots and was taught never to learn music but to use the dots and the notes therin to blah de blah de blah!!! so I'm open to anything! I use one for Barn dance Celidh Gigs often.

I play better without dots but can't get my head round it - my music teacher left some legacy then.

Also NOTE even with dots don't play drunk - After new years eve - don't even take instruments :-) or should it be :-(
