I used to be the guy who’s whole range of musical taste went from Linking Park to Limp Bizkit I was a young angsty teen and payed more attention to the music videos on Mtv than the Music itself so when i watched that flying whale in the apocalyptic CGI world of In the end i had found my favorite band. But one day the way i listened to music changed completely that was the day i decided to learn how to play the guitar I started with the basic boring stuff, learning notes, scales, etc… but my main objective was to play like the bands I loved so i learned to read guitar tabs little by little I learned how to distinguish each instrument from a band playing and that’s when it hit me playing the songs from those bands was really easy easy… and kind of boring i noticed they were all very similar to each other and i needed something more interesting, i needed new musical role models to look up to So i started researching who were the best guitarist in the world and that’s how i found out about the classics like Hendrix, Jimmi Page and Eric Clapton But i also found out about virtuosos like Petrucci, Satriani and eeeh… “Yngwie Malmsteen”? this guy: I think this is the perfect time to tell you that I’m not good at playing guitar at all but that’s not the point The point is, that learning to play the guitar taught me how to really appreciate music and I think that’s true with any musical instrument it makes you recognize talent no matter the music genre and that helps opening up your music taste You might not like pop music, but you got to admit John Mayer is an amazing guitarist and Adele has an incredible voice And don’t get me wrong, i still listen to old school Linkin Park from time to time but i also learned to enjoy some Fiona Apple Lukas Graham and even Mark Anthony, stuff i wouldn’t even touched 10 years ago By the way, my current favorite band is Tool, just so you know.
