Multi tapping all over the neck wasn't around in Buddy Holly's day.
And that's a good thing I think.
It gives us something else to listen to
and be inspired by, so that we don't all
end up doing all of the same things
and approaching music the same exact way
all the time. And there's alot of stuff inbetween
Buddy Holly and the stuff happening today
so we can all go in alot of different directions. I mean
there's alot available. We don't all have to all make
music with the exact same cookie cutter approach.
There's nothing wrong with being a slowhand or
a fasthand or a moderate-hand. As long as it
sounds good then who cares. Good singers
have value too, and I don't think alot of them
are able to sing over alot metal or guitar music where
the guitar is setting the finger speed record
all the time, at every opportunity.
It might happen sometimes, but it shouldn't
be EXPECTED every time. It's just unrealistic.
Which is something that alot of teenagers
probably aren't really thinking about. We
all want the most slamming music all the time
when we're younger, but miss alot of cool
stuff because of that hot rod gunslinger attitude.
Mellow can be damn cool too. Variety rules.
Cookie cutters don't really cut it. It's like
too much of one spice. It spoils the whole meal.
