Re: [Harp-L] Players don't participate

Hmmm.  There could be a number of reasons.  One might be that they have been playing a 
lot in their own band and they just felt like drinking a beer, listening to some music and not 
participating.  I have done that numerous times.  Sometimes you just need a break from 
playing out...especially if you already play out a lot.  He or she might be looking for a 
particular player for a band they are putting together and a jam is a good place to go for 
that.  Or, if they are a good player that REGULARLY attends a jam but doesn't bring an 
instrument or participates they might be one of those unfortunate musicians of the world 
that has an " I'm above all this"  attitude which would make them unpleasant to be around 
and in that case you don't want them playing anyway.
