Pick 2 choices if you wish. Curious to see what music decades were most influential to you as a player. Many of us gravitate towards a time in our early years of playing or maybe when music most impacted us as individuals. Many times that's when we were younger. For me, the 90's is it. Lot's of people complain that the 90's "ruined" music and guitar in general. Lessening emphasis on the "guitar hero" and solos. I feel kinda the opposite. I think it put the "song" itself back to the spotlight. I prefer more solo serving the song, than a "hey, look at my awesomeness while the rest of MY band stays and hammers on 1 note". To me the songs felt more "real". Bands wrote on a more personal level again. Coming out of the 80's it was a breath of fresh air. The 80's seemed to get to be all about image in a good chunk of popular music. I feel like guitar tones started getting better, less processed and a little more raw again. I began writing my own music somewhere around 1990. So that, in part, probably shaped me. I like things from all era's and there's always outliers. I feel like new era's often start out new and cool then get homogenized and boring. I'm turning older and more curmudgeon like, where I find it harder to like new music. I was curious where the members here were at.
