It is an attitude (sadly) I've come across before (though I hasten to add it's from a minority)
Thing is, if the posts are that boring and unimportant.... the log out button's quite a useful tool. In the meantime the rest of us can get on with passing and receiving bits of information so useless that they will no doubt inhibit our playing and musicianship further.
Sorry, but this needed to be said!
I certainly didn't mean to suggest that because people were in top section bands that they think players from lower sections (using terms lightly) don't know what they are talking about when questions are raised about playing techniques.
Its not that I find posts boring and unimportant, just wanted to rasie an issue that I thought myself was important.
It's good to see the topic being discussed and to see the mixture of responses, but please remember its meaning.
No, YOU didn't intend or mean that, but I wasn't the only one to misconstrue the threads' meaning. It went from 'helpful suggestions' to 'masterclasses' to 'boring'. It's what I reacted, with the benefit of hindsight, too rashly against, as I've already admitted.
