It's weird to think that for thousands of years the only music you heard was what the one guy who lived down the road could play on his mandolin or whatever.
@Quixote171 me, getting just furious: learn a new drum beat darvus
@Quixote171 "I heard another guy play a nice melody so I'm just going to steal it and write new lyrics" -dawn of time to 1900ish
Caveman: "Thank fuck for MP3's if Kevin played the first 2 bars of freebrid one more time I would have exploded"
same for written materials in some ages. people so rarely look to how much has changed
@Quixote171 there was often more than one person who could play though. In many cultures, ability to play an instrument made it easier to arrange a beneficial marriage.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
