What’s your take on modern genres of music? Things like Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer Trio, etc. People who have immensely studied music.

What about electric instruments? Electric guitar, electric bass, synthesizer.

 

What’s your opinion about these things?

Personally, I like the modern music as well. The sounds and production that are being produced are really inspiring. Then again, I am in my mid 20’s so I do have a biased outlook on this topic.

Modern music is pretty good. But, I really wish people still played classical music, and I wish there was more of a market for jazz. Most of my friends(I’m thirteen years old)have no idea who people like Rafael Mendez, Art Blakey, or even Wynton Marsalis are! That’s why I try to integrate listening to modern music with listening to classical and jazz music to “Broaden my vocabulary” in music. But that’s my opinion tell me what you think.
