This is so true, and also why I find a lot of their playing more interesting than someone that has been “trained” in classical guitar method and techniques. For instance, w Hendrix, he’d throw in Wes Montgomery licks out of nowhere in a psychodelic fuzzy guitar solo, and it’d just work bc the tonalities and phrasing matched up w the changes even though it had nothing to do w “blues” music. I’ve always enjoyed putting a piece of sheet music written by Hendrix and a piece written by Page or Knopfler next to each other. Even just barely scanning the pages you can see immense differences in approach....it’s conjecture on my part, but I have always assigned that vast difference to musical education level (or lack thereof) and it’s fascinating to compare, to me, bc I’m a nerd. Lol.
