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.
