Harmonica. Don't generally like the sound of it, which is a shame when I listen to Dylan.

Hmmmm, that's weird, it doesn't seem to be on the smilie list thing. Ah well, I'll know for next time though, cheers!

I don't really understand prejudice against a particular instrument. To me, just like any other facet of music, anything can be effective if it's used well. It's sort of epitomized by the harmonica thing: if you don't care for Dylan's particular brand of ham-handed playing (which is somewhat understandable), there're still guys like Charlie Musselwhite, Little Walter, and hell, Stevie Wonder who play with genuine proficiency and make it sound like a million bucks.

This is actually a very fair comment. I like Stevie Wonder and Little Walter when they play harmonica. Something about the way Dylan does it, that makes it sound so grating and abrasive at times.


Also, congratulations on becoming staff, Cody!

Even Dylan isn't always abrasive. You find "Sara" grating?

No, I don't, it's quite nice in that song, that's a good example.

I don't dislike the harmonica in every instance and there are clearly examples where it's nice and works well in songs. But, to generalise, I don't really enjoy Dylan's use of harmonica. Though I'll admit that I probably shouldn't have spoke in such absolute terms earlier in the thread.
