Re: GuitarPlayer.com's "Which style shows the most promise for evolving the art of guitar playing?"
Hmmmn, given the selections of:
-I'd go with Classically-informed Progressive Jazz-Rock/Country Fusion with an influx of Rhythm 'n' Bluesy Funk 'n' Reggae. (Just what
to do with the ONE vs the AND beats... ?!
Up for the Chuck-stroke!
(Sorry, you who woodshed on Kingston Trio, Joan Baez and Bob Dylan! Especially since you all yelled at Bob for daring to play a Strat... yeah, that's progressive open-mindedness and evolving an art form for ya...
Seriously- I don't think that any one of the provided genres are all that promising "for evolving the art of guitar playing", as each is fairly entrenched in now decades-long traditional definitions with a nearly carved-in-stone vocabulary and characteristic tones.
Now- I'd be GLAD to be mistaken here! Please someone show me to be wrong!
