I was talking with my kids (16, 18, 21, & 23) today about fusing different genres and different styles of music. They told me I am more like an abstract artists (which I took as a compliment). Conversation then turned to the car radio, xm pop station, and I thought that must was more background for theatrical entertainment. The music really, in my opinion, was not an art form. My kids agreed. On the pole I intentionally did not offer both as most of us would say both. I'm curios about the amount of TBers that view their playing as more of a service they provide or more of an art.
