In my lifetime, electric guitar dominated all forms of listenable music, and then it just ate itself. At some point the innovation and creative writing ceased and everybody seems to have gotten caught up in the sound they can make with pickups-pedals-amps and quit actually trying to make music. And post let's say 1997ish music has just become such a corporate formulated McMusic that it's uninspiring and unlistenable. So now I'm seeing a lot of interest in of all things, surf. Why or how is this? Simple - people are having to go back in time to find listenable, inspiring music. The masses have already digested all the classic and southern rock they can, and blues... well, they've consumed blues 100 times over and will continue to. Country, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the same heroes from the 60s are still the heroes of today plus a scant few others that have been added over the years.. but Don Rich/James Burton are still just as focused on as the 3 Kings or Clapton. So now it's surf. A genre forgotten and ignored for decades save for a minute in 1994 thanks to Tarantino. And now I see the blooz dads getting into surf because they finally accepted they will never be SRV I suppose. Not sure what my point is, just thinking outloud about the motives and thought process of people who don't actually feel music, but have the urge to play with a guitar, not play guitar.
