Re: [ARSCLIST] Recording rates for musicians.
Which part? I was just kidding about the great country tunes. I was
serious about the musicianship of great blue grass and jazz musicians
being on a par with classically trained musicians. I known all types
from my time in college, and _all_ the guys I know who are in bands
(country, rock) don't work as hard as the guys I know that play in

That brings to mind a truly great song that surely will go down the

with you. I'd place great jazz and blue grass musicians on a pedestal
with great classically trained musicians. Many "popular" and "folk"
musicians don't have "chops". They are creative. Yes, you are
correct that there is an elitism to "classical" music and musicians,
but they work a hell of a lot harder than most popular musicians. I
think that's why the boys (and girls) don't get stoned before playing
Le Sacre or Zarathustra.
