Tony, trust me, that was NOT directed at YOU. But if I'm being honest, I can't say it was ENTIRELY metaphorical either.

I was lucky enough to recognize my mediocrity early and smart enough to move on to another career . Just because you make a living at something doesn't automatically mean you're good at it. I've had some pretty lousy carpenters, plumbers, and electricians in my day. The guy that wired my father-in-law's house, electrocuted himself on the job. Unfortunately, there aren't quite enough similar 'thin the herd' probabilities in the music field. But, as long as we keep propping up those that don't deserve the accolades, the music industry will continue to be polluted with talentless so-called 'pro's' posing as legitimate musicians and entertainers. JMO, of course.

Tony, as weird as this may sound to you, my wife actually played accordion as a child, so maybe my feelings are just misdirected .

As far as talent is concerned, to paraphrase Henry Miller, 'you can't define it but you recognize it when you see it'.



chas

PS: We (She) had a gigantic old Silvertone accordion (imported from Italy but sold by Sears) in a homongous thick leather case lined with red felt (or something fuzzy??). After sitting for years, we opened it one day to find that the bellows had dry-rotted. That was excuse enough for me to toss it in the trash. It actually looked like it may have been a nice (read expensive) instrument. Kind of sorry I did that now, it probably could have been repaired.

Chas,

I am crap at spelling and crap at choosing Keyboards. I am honest enough and I know my place in life now.

Well, apparently I am as well. I just noticed that in my post criticizing your spelling, I misspelled "definately" (definitely). Glad I picked it up before Taike or Ian did (or maybe they were just to polite to point it out). I guess the pot should never call the kettle uh, dark-hued.
