In any Irish or Scottish session, I'd completely agree—and might be more specific as to where the chords should be deposited.

However, this grouping was described as a "jam" with guitars and other string instruments, most of whom came from a country or folk background. Not your average "session"... But, no matter what the nature of the musical event, such rudeness is way out of line.

Sometimes a situation like that can be an educational opportunity — bagpipes are folk instruments, many of them old-timey ballads came from the same place that bagpipes did, bagpipes come in many types/tunings/volumes/etc. Doesn't sound like the guitar ogre would be up for any education though.

Hashtag sad.

Best wishes.

"Tom's" only mistake is that after he walked out, he should have walked back in with highland pipes! ;-)

Bravo to Tom for showing such class in a bad situation!! I imagine such class was missed by the guitar player. I wonder that others didn't come to Tom's defense but those situations can be touchy and many wouldn't know just how best to involve themselves. Most musicians, especially of the folk tradition, tend to be very kind, accepting and encouraging. I hope the guitar player will heal from whatever ails him.
