Robb, I agree -

I think ANYONE who plays (harmonica, for instance) could discern between
CONTEXTUALLY great tone & s**t tone.
And, I mean the tone the artist produces with his instrument - not what the
producer &/or engineer does to his SOUND.
Maybe we'd have a difference of opinion about great & super-great, or shades
of goodness or awfulness, but really - can't we at least differentiate
between GOOD & BAD?
