    If you be yourself it's easier to remember what you're supposed to do!

    This what my good friend and a hell of a player calls "a train wreck"

    We have a friend that used to host a yearly jam on Labor Day. Way out in the country. Oh about beer:30 there were about 6 guitar players on stage, along with keyboards and a rhythm section. EVERYBODY playing full out, and over the top of each other. We were standing in the crowd, and he leans in and says what a train wreck.

    If you've been there you know who you are.

    I hadn't heard "Stevie Ray Vaughnabe" before...made me chortle. But, I have to say, for a dude to come out rockin' a blonde wig and take on some KWS licks he has to be able to laugh at himself a little. Someone with a genuine, self-deprecating sense of humor can't be all bad. At least, I keep reassuring myself that it's true... :)

    Must have been the case cause most of the songs were lumps, strolls and boxes. Really basic grooves.

    kelnet, I am with you. I thought I conveyed this in the latter part of my post. Yes, most of the working pros I know care little to none about these things and even less about putting people down for it. They usually look beyond the surface and offer support and encouragement. Looking for the right equipment and stage clothes is fun, and is no one's business except the person using and wearing it. There is another conversation I feel inside of our exchange about who the working pros are, and what working pro means. To me, they support themselves on music only, not from an alternate source of income. They are usually found where there is a consistent good wage to be made... which is usually not any sort of place that elitists would want to be seen. In demand wedding bands, corporate event bands, solo acts in tourist areas, etc... More later, got to get to this evening's gig.

    I live in Potomac now but the Tan Pants meme originated due to an incident that happened when I lived in Ellicott City.

    yeah it's getting so you can hardly stand your fellow vanity musicians, out in the subdivisions, to hear you guys talk.

    glad I live in a college town; everyone in the musician circles is broke and no one can afford to be a gear snob

    My last amp cost me 40 some dollars

    It's called a fiddle, son. Muddy invented electricity!

    How about:

    If you complain about how employees at Lowes and Home Dpoe are clueless - about what kind of plywood Erik John Stone uses for his petals - you maybe a Blooze Daddy

    As for spelling blues as blooze they're different genres.

    Rev Gary Davis or BB King were blues artists

    The clowns we're talking about are blooze artists:)

    And for those who have their nickers in a twist, these folks show up in all walks of life in all activities. They have been this way since they were old enough to determine what objects were more "valuable" than others. These are the guitar strain of the guys, who give your Dunlop driver, Wilson raquet or the old Mossberg you use for trap the side eye/roll, sniff at the bottle of wine you brought as a hostess gift, and make a snide comment about your new ride, or tell you "those are the wrong wiper arms" when they check out your old faithful at a Saturday afternoon "run what you brung" show. They refuse to drink the "Adjunct Lager" you provide at a informal cook out. They are the adult version of the insufferable ass you knew in high school that talked down your stereo, and sneered at your latest acquisition or achievement no mater what it was. They are a boil on the butt of those who show up at a jam or OM and just want to play a few tunes, have a Bud and shoot some pool. They deserve a ribbing because they dampen the mood of any gathering like wet burlap.

    Sure, there's lots of clues and generalizations.


    But, a TRUE bonafide A#1 Blooze Daddy follows one very important harmonic rule unique to the breed...Never actually go to the V

    For, anyone who goes to the V is trying to play the blues, different bag.

    ;)

    Maybe this is mean, but you know you're a blooze daddy...

    ... if you're Joe Bonamassa!

    Ouch lol, Joe seems like a nice guy and and the gear thing well, it's just bizarre. I somehow totally missed the "Joe Train" until I caught a special on PBS a few years back, my initial thought was he looked like the investment banker that I used to coch rec league lacrosse with, they both have "The Hair". But Joe seems to be cool (he is friends w/ Bernie Marsden..who lets him play "The Beast", so he must be..) I'm sure his lifestyle is aspirational for many a BD but I believe he is OK.

    I'd like to think so. Any one who respects the greats like that should be decent, but... I just can't stand the fake rock-blues and the preening stage presence. Maybe I'm stupid, but I think it's distasteful and egotistical.
