Thread Name: Using a music stand
Subject: RE: Using a music stand
Bunch of snobs.

I have a pretty good memory for chords and lyrics, so I've never felt the need to use a music stand on stage - but so what if I did? If someone needs to jog their memory once in a while, but pulls off a good performance while doing so, why should any of us care?

There are some people who just can't memorize things. They still have a right to perform without suffering ridicule, scorn, or some arsehole burning their lyrics.

I thought folkies were supposed to be tolerant.
