I grew up coming out of the '70s and it seemed like a lot of big bands, Yes, Rush, even Led Zeppelin inspired a lot of guitarists to study classical. I've been back into it heavily now for about a year and a half and although I'll never be a virtuoso, I've learned more about interesting chord voicings, open string juxtopositions, and outside tonal runs that don't sound like jazz that have had much more of an effect on my electric playing than anything in the last 25 years. These composers, like Villa Lobos, Rodrigo, Barrios seemed to have much more imagination in what a guitar can do that I don't know what. A lot of the music wasn't even written by guitarists, which seems to have opened up its possibilities. It's also very satisfying to play a complete set up music by yourself. Am I the only one enjoying this? So, why aren't more of us studying classical guitar? Is it that the rock music we listen to nowadays doesn't inspire the recent generations to explore that direction?
