This is exactly why I am not currently in a band. And why I'm
beginning to hate blues jams. Why is it that guitarists all believe
a harp is for that one jam between the second and third verse and
should otherwise shut up. Where's the guitar player that would only
play 20% of the time? I'm totally convinced that if I ever get the
right band together there will be NO GUITAR AT ALL! ('ceppin a'course
a bass). Gimme harp, bass, drums and rub board (or percussion).
But people just stare at you if you suggest a band with no guitar.

Guitar is the IBM-PC/MS-DOS of music.
