OK guys, here's the fun part. Know the difference between Mississippi
blues,Kansas City blues, Chicago blues, and New York City blues?
Know the difference between early 17th century Italian Baroque, late
17th century German Baroque, early 18th century Italian Baroque, etc.?
Get what I'm saying?
Of course you do, you are very smart guys! There are all kinds of
general stylistic things, and all kinds of individual stylistic
things. Tons of stuff to learn, more than any one person can absorb.
So - listen, read, study, play a lot. It's a nice way to kill time.
