People often say no music is truly original. That’s probably true given songwriters openly cite their musical influences while occasionally suing each other for copyright infringement.
Garrett Dutton, better known as G. Love, understands nobody is reinventing the harmonious wheel.
“Music is not something you can really own,” Dutton said. “The biggest thing is you have to take whatever you learn from wherever you get it from and make it into your own words and your own style. You only need one chord or one string as long as you have something to say.”
