    3. any book, article, tweet, post, speech that we may read or hear,
    4. any movie or TV show that we may watch,
    5. any play that we may attend,
    6. any sporting event that we may witness,
    7. any musical performance that we may attend or hear.


    We see how many, many countries on earth squelch this speech, yet we remain undettered. When people start to tell us that we can't speak freely, we remember our founding and how it was earned.

    Here's the real ethic, the only natural ethic, the only ethic that works:
    If any person/persons perform or express themselves in the public square - especially for pay or promotion - then they need to be prepared to discover that they and/or their presentations are not necessarily loved and accepted by all. If that notion is too traumatic for them to accept, then they need to stay home - for their own mental and physical well being.
    .

    Looks like you just can't help your narcissistic "specialness". Why shouldn't an artist be allowed to defend his/her innovations or interpretations? That last line of yours is nothing but an empty threat, and you're getting really boring.

    Yep, luv youse guys too.

    I’m just happy that I introduced Jim, Jeff and perhaps others to David Russell and the Assad Brothers, and that makes me feel good.

    I would further say that when the top concertizing classical guitarists come through your town or city - go see them! I have found that friends and family alike have always thoroughly enjoyed the evening whether they loved pop, prog rock or whatever. None of them knew the performers or the music but appreciated great music and performances. Given that everybody here is a music and guitar lover in particular, I’m even more confident that you’d enjoy it.

    Cheers!

    For the record, Lobo,
    I like Christian. He is a serious person, a certified musician, and, at times, has a good sense of humor/wit--albeit, British. His posts, musical and intellectual, reflect his experience/relationship/vision to JGF. I have watched several of his videos and have "liked" some of them. He is a "working musician" and that has great merit ,for me, since it places him in a different category that many on this forum and reflects my own life until Covid.

    I think my sense of humour is rather appalling, but it keeps me amused if no-one else.

    Sure it is .. and any other JG.be thread (one of my favorites is the Eleonara Strino one). Our creedo is "All good music has already been written and performed. What you're showing us here is shite and pales to what came before"

    Hi, Lobo,
    I think you're finally experiencing a spiritual epiphany . . . savor the moment!

    Hi, Lobo,
    You are a classic idealist and I hope you have, at least, 40 years of life left! For me, I live one day at a time.
