Bedubya To Play What You Like or What They Want. (35) RE: To Play What You Like or What They Want. 11 Apr 01


Little Neo

The only song my father ever wants to hear me play on guitar is "Freight Train". The only one my mother ever wants is Marty Robbins' "El Paso". Other than that it wouldn't matter to them if I played like Tony Rice or Elmer Fudd. Family is family, not an audience.

On the other hand, if you play much with other people you will eventually find yourself at some 3:OOAM jam session where someone you thought played nothing but Donnegal fiddle tunes will decide to do "Under the Boardwalk" and you will not only know how to play it, but it will be a truly serendipitous experience and you will be all the richer for it.

Play anything. It's all good!
