I keep finding myself in situations where young people are showing me what passes for Talented Young Musicians these days. Some shmuck with a baby face and a guitar who neither plays or sings well at all and is doing overdubbed recordings of stuff he didn't write.

"That isn't talent, it's marketing. This is talent"

They look at me like I have something alien growing outta my head alien

The 70's were good to music fans.

You gotta admit, the flood of excellent guitarists and artists that came out of Great Britain in the late 60's through the 70's was impressive and an impossible thing to follow. Page, Beck, Clapton, Trower, Frampton, Gilmour, Blackmore, Iommi, etc... There musta been something in the water back then Wink

Yeah, It's just a shame I didn't drink much of it back then.

The real talent now a days never gets discovered.

Why have the fat guy, the pencil thin boob less lass, or the half blind black guy sing when we can just auto-tune the hotties?


There's still talent out there, quite a bit, you just have to find it.

Love all this stuff as posted above. Including and especially Robin Trower. Part and parcel of my influences and inspirations.

Making music with just your axe, fingers, and guts. No tricky studio stuff or overdubs.

Good stuff!

Cool



Cheers,
RR

Hell at least overdubs was legitimate studio work. With actual music being added to music.

Now they just sing (sort of) into a mic and the computer spits the sound of angels out of the speaker. That's one of the things I like about programs like The Voice™. I'm not dumb enough to belief there's no some occasional trickery but for the most part you hear singers singing.
