Wayne Krantz

 I read an interview with the guitarist Wayne Krantz recently, and he said there are 4 essential elements of music;  Melody, Harmony, Rhythm, and Sound (or Tone). Nothing new about that, but he went on to say that every musician has an ability or particular strength in one of these areas. It doesn't mean they don't have abilities in the other 3, but rather they create or get their inspiration through one. I thought of many of the musicians I've worked with and listened to and I tend to agree with his view. He said his strength was Rhythm and you can hear that in his playing. He is a very rhythmic player, interesting phrases, grooves etc. I find it interesting to think of these concepts to better understand myself as a player. Mine? Rhythm.
