Well, considering that the L has been a wee bit stale for the past 1 1/2 years with posts being down, I don’t see why. And just because members? have dropped out
doesn’t mean that much. It is a time of the year when people get busy with other things. Plus the question arrises: ‘were they actually contributing?’ OR were they guests.

The only problem I have with this subject is that I know several people who can elucidate on and on about positions, modes, scales, structures. Mixolodian, Fridgedaireian,
Acrophobian, etc., but they can’t play. I mean, ok, yeah, they can play but they don’t ‘have it’. In an effort to not be too uncharitable I hesitate to use the word boring, so I
will try bland. Sometimes I think players pay too much attention to the hole and not the donut.
