LavatoryLoveMachine;96795 said:Thats a pretty big problem I find in these discussions. What makes you a great guitarist? Technical skill, or musical sensitivity? Definitely, when one is a great musician, that counts more than being a great instrumentalist. I mean, one can play the instrument great, but be completely incompetent in writing interesting music. These discussions never make this point clear.
