I wonder why Carrie doesn't play the guitar that much while performing? Is she afraid tI break a fingernail? I know she knows how to play one but she rarely uses it. Lambert uses hers all the time but why doesn't Carrie?
Well Miranda's songs are basic, Carrie's songs are much more difficult and complex.. that's why I guess.
Or maybe she just doesn't want to...
Are they more complex musically, or just vocally. Sort of sounds like a your fan bias is showing, and not really any back up to that.
Like others have said Carrie is a vocalist, not so much an instrumentalist. Show probably learned guitar in a pinch, not as a passion.
I don't expect Carrie to play guitar a lot just like I don't expect Miranda to be Carrie performance wise. She will do it once in while. Its not Carrie usual performance style. That's okay. Miranda and Carrie are different artists. They both have complex songs in their own ways. World would be boring place if everyone was the same. I like Carrie and Miranda for their own artistic styles.
What makes them more musically complex?
The instrumentation? The originality? The combinations of sounds? Carrie's songs always sound different from any other country singers, she put a lot of efforts to create new sounds, that is obvious!
Miranda's songs in the other hand sounds like any other country songs, there is nothing innovative on her sound. It's not a bad thing though, it's just her style.
