Rick Fielding Pete Seeger's Banjo virtuosity (133* d) RE: Pete Seeger's Banjo virtuosity 19 Jul 03


Martin....sorry, and I mean this. There really aren't any purists in this thread. They stick to the unaccompanied ballad threads. As Amos pointed out, a couple of your comments got my (and I assume other's) dander up. All of us seem to be "middle of the road" trad/commercial folkies, who've sung for the love, AND the livliehood. Nobody's dumped on the "striped shirters" the way you've dumped on what you perceive us to be.

One Good thing....we've got a shit more posts than normal, and I like that.

It's NOT worth getting in a BIG snit over, and we all appreciate your giving your background....it helps in any kind of testy discussion. I'm four years your senior and still love pickin the banjo Scruggs style AND Seeger style, and truth to tell, I think I would have enjoyed the Chad Mitchells as well. A lot more than the Kingston Trio probably........but I love Art Theime too.

Anyway, sorry for bein' a bit sarcastic.....I do that occasionally.

Rick

DECKMAN!!! I got the book. (Goofing Off Suite, transcribed by Billy Faier) You are a gem! Long live Mudcat!
