Re: Basic intro (OT)

Music for me is most profound and enjoyable when it communicates
emotively and intuitively, so that's my ideal.  Not necessarily
'deep' or 'complex', simple, light and subtle is fine.  I just
saw a cajun band last night.  Simple music, upbeat,
lighthearted, but it struck a chord in me and changed my mood
dramatically that evening.  Right now I'm listening to Steve
Tibbetts.  Music, nummy.
