How to take up a musical genre [such as Country & Western] and make DECENT music!
THE FOLLOWING IS A PUBLIC SERVICE STATEMENT FROM THE GUY WHO PUT IT HERE -
Well, I guess it helps a lot to get really high, preferably on good weed, in the company of true friends.
Take a drink, if you want.
Have a few instruments around and encourage the people who can, to play them.
Probably a good idea to have a recording device switched on, lest you forget something wonderful you may come up with.
With any luck, in some magical moments, you might come up with something like these people did:
The Fraternity of Man: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N0IjBgyFoE
The Holy Modal Rounders: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4qkGf3q7gA
The Byrds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLF9v2NcOo8
Roger McGuinn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5R4XnKBQ67w
If it doesn't happen, know that's OK.
Maybe watch the movie 'Easy Rider' for the 10th time for inspiration or just for wonderful inspired entertainment and some meaningful stuff.
And get high again.
