Thread Name: To Play What You Like or What They Want.
Subject: RE: To Play What You Like or What They Want.
I thought about what I wrote yesterday and it still feels unsettling. The truth is, I just want to play the old-time music I am studying right now. If folks want to hear me play other stuff, well I'll do the best I can. Rick Fielding gave me a great foundation to figure out basic chord structures for most folk songs. So I will work with what I've been taught. But I am not going to spend much time on it. It does come down to what is important to me......playing for myself or playing for others. I don't know.... I am not a professional. I just want to play my banjo and play the tunes I enjoy.
I guess I'll be waffling with this one for a long time.
