Try (Just a Little Bit Harder)

You don't have a very high score, but the test is a challenging one. It's possible that you may already listen to and enjoy lots of good music, but may simply not recognize musicians by face. Regardless, it's always good to listen to new music by artists that are unfamiliar to you and to seek out greater musical variety. You may be pleasantly surprised by what you discover!

 

In actuality, all of the people in the quiz are musicians. Don't feel too bad, though. Even if you are knowledgeable about music, it is often easy to confuse musicians for hobos.

 

 

Here is the list of musicians and in the order in which they appear:

 

  1. Andre Williams

  2. Will Oldham, a.k.a. Bonnie Prince Billy

  3. Art Garfunkel

  4. Ben Bridwell (from Band of Horses, Carissa's Wierd)

  5. Bob Seger

  6. Cat Stevens

  7. Daniel Higgs (from Lungfish)

  8. Devendra Banhart

  9. John Fahey

 10. Jad Fair
