Instrument players get that sort of thing too....

I'm quoting myself here from a thread on The

(Sessions Euphemisms)

"That's a nice mandolin.."
(A lovely instrument but your playing is crap)

"I know a different setting for the tune you've just played"
(You're playing it all wrong)

"That's quite a loud fiddle"
(You're playing bum notes and I can hear them"

"Have you been playing for a long time?"
(You're obviously a beginner. What are you doing here?"

"How did you find about this session?"
(As above)

"I never remember the names of the tunes"
(The last thing I want is someone like yourself murdering a good tune "from the dots")
