Anyone heard of guitarist "cutiing heads". Read some folks mention music is not a competiotion and should not be, etc, etc. I agree 100 percent. Read some folks mention bands, music and bar fights. I dont like this either. Unfortunately, alcohol brings out the worst in many.
Anyway, about competition. There are some places down South, mostly very small towns in Northern Louisiana and allot of Mississippi, where there is the occassional "cutting heads" show. Where bands, or mostly guitarist, compete to see who the crowd votes is the better gutarist. I dont know any guitarist who agrees with music being a competition, they just want the nice cash prize the winner gets. They also know the the winner may not truly be the better gutarist, just more popular. These places are real dives... some with the chicken wire stage fronts and all. Great places to hear the real delta blues. The cutting head shows get good sometimes also. I played a few for the money, But it is hard to get out of there without avoiding words, much less a fight, or getting gear stolen. All said the music played is seriously good most of the times.
Anyone else thinks that rock paper scissors is a game of good judgement and strategy, or am I just paranoid?
Love for all human beings is like listening to any kind of music. You just don't care.
