David Crosby, the vocalist and founding member of both the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, has answered the question of his fan on Twitter and revealed if he has ever been interested in being the lead guitarist or bassist.
The iconic rock and folk musician David Crosby has been taking the questions of his fans on Twitter for some time now. As you may remember, Crosby explained his thoughts about some of the legends in the industry, such as Eric Clapton and Keith Richards back then.
After the most recent question he got from a fan, who asked him what he thinks about being the lead guitarist or bassist in the band, Crosby admitted that almost all guitar players want to be the lead, however, very few of them have the massive amount of talent it takes to play the melody.
David Crosby, who was the rhythm guitarist of The Byrds, said that, for this reason, he has never considered himself good enough to be the lead guitarist of his bands. He added that he is a picker instead.
Here is what was asked to David Crosby:
“Were you ever interested in playing much lead guitar or even bass?”
Crosby responded as:
“Almost all guitar players want to be, wish they could be, lead players. Very few of us have the massive amount of talent it takes to play melody…
I’m not good enough… I’m a picker.”
