I understand the band related context. But since this is Talkbass (where we almost always extrapolate and widen the discussion)and because we are speaking of perhaps the most basic human trait (communication) I wanted to share what is a glaring trend: the public’s tendency to poorly relate to each other despite the insane amount of communication options. I see this communication breakdown as endemic and vitally important in all areas...business, pleasure, familial, etc. (By the way, the service I sell is so specific that we never need to go after business. No real salesmanship needed. You need us or you don’t.) Thanks for the great thread and for your indulgence!
