It's not fair!!

Does growing up in the culture of specific style of music give you an unfair advantage?

Come check out Jonathan's new lesson,"KennyWayne Shepherd Phrasing". Kenny Wayne Shepard grew up in the backyard of blues of Louisiana and already has a soaring career as a blues guitarist.

Definitely. No one can play like those Cuban trobadores. But maybe on an instrument it's not that unfair because you can still work your way towards somewhere near the original players.

Now singing is really another thing. I guess also because of physiological reasons.

Also Paul Gilbert has double size fingers so that's not fair. But, Shawn Lane had small hands, so. biggrin.gif

Just as unfair as Africans growing up in a society ruined by western capitalism

If I remember correctly Olivier Messiaen spent many years in the far east listening to Eastern instruments and non-Western notions of music, particularly Javanese and Hindu. Because of this he moved away from Western composition and scales and introduced micro tonality, poly-rhythm, Eastern instrumentation, etc in to his works.

Another example of breaking away from a musical cultural heritage would be John McLaughlin who broke from Western scales etc by studying Indian ragas etc.

Although people usually say you can work your way through anything, and that can indeed be true in general sense, I say, there is certainly genetics and other factors involved in musicality of humans. I would certainly play different if I was born in Louisiana than in Serbia biggrin.gif

Yes I think so too. Its like with football or anything. When we are young environment has great influence on our future. If we are exposed to certain style of music for generations we are more likely to have it in the "genes". Whether we want it or not - sometimes we can't escape from this influence. Sometimes its a good thing and sometimes isn't.

Unfair? No. But of course there is a difference in culture. If you have a mind that wants to play something else than you find all around you, the mind would want difference no matter where you grow up. If you grow up in India wanting to play Swedish traditional music, you would not want to play Swedish traditional music if you grew up in Sweden. Its the exoticness that draws you inn.
Everything that you like is the result of the environment that you grew up in, and if you love something, then that is the best thing in the world. There are too many people that doesn't love anything at all. But it is up to you to divulge into it by getting to wherever on the planet you have to go to be able to divulge into it. If you grew up in that area, you might not find it interesting at all. So I would be grateful for enjoying it. smile.gif
Besides, if you are playing blues, then growing up in, say an himalayan village with a population of 200, might just give you the unique perspective on the genre that you need to become an interesting player. It would be much tougher for the mainstream Louisiana blues player to bring something new to the table, having grown up with the music he likes all around him. He wouldnt search for exoticness no matter where he grew up.
