    Along these lines though, have you ever met someone that is "full of it" but still better than you.

    I personally prefer the spoken/rapped word to that saturated country sound.

    At least these performers have a concept of space, and aren't going to leave you tone deaf after the performance.

    The consonants, are musical too, but this thread isn't about beat boxing or high hats or the word "to".

    This is why people HATE theory. Why do we still call it theory if it has been proven to work and withstood the test of time? Proof? You offer none regarding successful players. This maybe yet another incarnation of Moshe/Morris/Brian12121212121212! Maybe you should've explained FIRST what the immediate negative is. The way I understand it is people are afraid to change cause they don't want to fail. Therefore they fail to change and thus fail to grow. Maybe you were afraid of your own theory so you clouded it in educational gobledeegook! ROFLROFL:

    Yo SmoothOperator, I'm really happy for you, I'ma let you finish, but....

    And that's about enough of THAT.

    I guess I'm just not quite sure what you mean about "that saturated country sound." This is aside from the fact that the singers and players in country music are extraordinary musicians - REAL musicians, who do indeed have a concept of space, as well as rhythm, melody, harmony, technique, etc.

    Whew, I've sat in and jammed with a lot of country players and some are REALLY good:
    I don't know how to do better than Johnny Cash or Chet Atkins.

    I'll give you Chet Atkins, but Johnny Cash? My Dad said that they used to call him "3-Chord Cash." He may have eventually developed into a solid guitar player, but I've never understood him to be anything out of the ordinary.

    But on the other hand:

    Brad Paisley
    Earl Scruggs
    Roy Clark
    Ricky Scaggs
    Glen Campbell (Member of the legendary Wrecking Crew before he went solo)
    Les Paul (I mean seriously - THE man behind the guitar)
    Etc - that's just for guitar or banjo, and keep in mind, I'm not grabbing at any names from country, but rather the ones who were regarded for their virtuosic musicianship.

    Right, and it isn't about anything else either!

    OP wrote what we used to call "double talk."
