List out the live music concerts you have attended or any other way you listen to actual instruments
Its a very broad question. What are you specifically looking for? Music genres, artists, reviews? For instance I attended a live concert of LL Cool J and it was horrible but I rather like his studio albums. Same with Eric Clapton. On the other hand I prefered to listen to Kunnakudi live but his albums pretty much suck wrt quality recordings.
I always hear people talking about their equipments but never about live music
But the finest sound is easily in small, good venues. Thermal and a Quarter used to do shows at this eco-village called Trans-Indus (off Kanakpura road, in Bangalore), and the sound they got together with Acoustic Control was fabulous.
