Just looking at a couple of threads and things made me start to smile (although the smile could still be the after effects of alcohol from Pontins!) Just wondered....... how many players are (for want of a better word) snobs? In banding, I have heard lots of players name drop, section/band drop and even solo dropping is done! (ie I can play this - you can't) When it is done directly to me I get annoyed and find myself even joining the bandwagon (?!) and name dropping back! Do players in the Championship Section think that 4th Section players are less capable? Do they look down on them? Would you as a Championship player mind if a 4th Section player came and sat next to you and guested? If you were in a 4th Section band, do you think that players in the above sections are too big for their boots and need taking down a peg or ten? Do people feel judged by the bands they play or have played for? Do you think someone is not a good player because they can't play solos well/cant triple tongue/cant play? :twisted: My own opinion is you have some fantastic players in lower sections who are ex-Championship players and you have some really poor players in Championship bands too..... I also think that there are indeed some 'snobs' out there and it winds me up even if I like them! :lol: I also think the majority of higher section bandsmen I know have no issues with the lower sections.... Anyway, over to you - thoughts please!
