I apologize if this has been posted elsewhere (couldn't find it on here), but I had to share this: I know this guy claims to be joking (and if the responses are any indication, most people don't seem too amused), but his attitude seems to be reflective of real animosity I've seen towards ERGs mainly outside of SS.org. I'm baffled by how people are so closed off to the possibilities these instruments present, much less how many of them seem almost personally affronted by their very existence. Has anyone else noticed a certain amount of contempt? It seems like people always want to excuse anything new as a "fad." I know the 7 string was viewed that way for a long time, and probably still is by some, but it's clearly here to stay. Has anyone here had firsthand experience with bias against their ERGs?
