I appreciate @bpaluzzi 's input quite a bit.Oh, absolutely! I wasn't responding to you -- your post made sense. I was responding to the person calling us out for not mentioning "swing". Because modern rock music is definitely known for how much it swings
I've been trying to avoid this conversation, but it keeps coming at me one way or the other, so I'm just going to come out and say it:
No one wants to take away your ride.
I get it that rides are somewhat of a sacred cow around here, but some responses to this post have been pretty visceral, defensive, and just not cool.
In my case, it's been two gigs in a row where the artist is asking for things to be played a certain way. I don't think my feelings about any particular piece of equipment are worth losing the artist's confidence in my abilities to interpret their music they way they see fit. It's not my music, so waxing philosophical about my sound sounds petty.
There. Have at it again.
