After replying to this, something messed up and now i have to write the whole thing again...arrrg!!!! ok here it goes.
First of all, take a breath and ease up guy!
Maybe you missed what i said. I didn't say anything about classical music did I? I think not. Bach is an excellent tool to use to not only further your musical/bass playing skills but also to appreciate the work of genius. Agree or disagree with that if you will. Secondly, "Rockin" doesn't sum up everything i'm about does it?? I try to keep a broad mind with music. I like everything (except mtv pop, rap, and most country music) but everything else gets thumbs up
from me. Here i've written an equation of what i think about tribute bands. TRIBUTE BAND=LIMITEDNESS. Now you say exploring the music of one or two bands will stretch you out in many ways. I agree. It will. But not nearly as much as a person who reaches to the far corners of the musical spectrum, and tries playing a little bit of everything. Why use one or two when you could use hundreds of talented people's ideas. Try this: listen to everyone you can and then take the best of what you like. There are more musicians out there than two. Lastly, of course i'm looking at the "glitz" of my view of tribute bands. Thats why i wrote this. I thought i'd compare my view to others' views. shrug
sorry if i offended you but keep in mind you may be misunderstanding me.. :)
