Dave T Accompanying another musician (75* d) RE: Accompanying another musician 03 Feb 02


Whenever I accompany someone else I remind myself that my job is to make them sound better, to try to enhance the feeling/mood they're creating, not to make myself heard. If that means not playing through certain sections that's what I try to do. It's definitely not how many notes one can play, "it's the spaces between them that count". I've always admired Jack Lawrence (a great picker on his own) backing up Doc Watson. Also, Dennis Cahill on guitar backing up Martin Hayes on fiddle is extraordinary.
