Seriously. I've heard my share of "Sure, I'd love to's!" about all kinds of things. Community projects, pick-up games, helping coach Little League teams, you name it. I get that humans are talented b.s.-ers. But why does music seem to generate the biggest number of empty promises to jam, play, work out a song, learn a part, show up for rehearsal, tune the damn guitar before the song starts, not give up at the first frustration level, etc.? Are musicians more prone to big ambitions undermined by lousy work habits/an inability to keep one's word than other people are--or does music matter so much that you just notice these human flaws more when it comes to music-related promises and proclamations? Or both, or something else?
