Re: Before I go, The Cajun Nashville System in a Nutshell
It’s not much of a “Cajun Nashville system” if it makes no musical sense. The Nashville system is based on song key.
Yep. The “True Cajun Musician” knows most keys and chord changes, 99% of the time. I’d like to think I’m in that number. I’ve spent countless hours walking into a jam of professional players and amateurs alike all immediately knowing the key and chords with knowing the accordion key.
The topic of preservation seems to be a big deal for you. Why not show other people the gifts of this music? I know for a fact the musicians that I have shown this music to have learned it with great pride and respect for the culture and the music. Sometimes, it pays to be able to explain music across all cultural and musical barriers. (Aka, the Nashville number system).
That’s just my two cents. Not meaning to start any fuss Grwezy, this is a discussion group, right? Didn’t mean to ruffle your feathers.
