I listened to a radio interview with Harry Connick, Jr. One of the questions is about classical, popular, jazz difficulties for himself, that is.

Jazz improvisation and playing in a jazz group doing the same...most difficult.

Every form of music requires talent. Often, the simplest of songs need a LOT of talent to make them work. There's nowhere to hide when performing a simple song.

Sure some degree of talent makes enjoyable music, but there are many talented musicians and vocalists that make the most insipid pop music. I like my music to have some (for lack of better words) heart and passion in it even if it is less polished.

I think that generally some of the older genre musicians had less distractions and more practice and the instruments and style influences were more diverse.

But at the top of almost every genre it gets pretty competitive with one-another talent wise.

Here's a blues guitarist fingerpicking an acoustic guitar as part of a rock & roll band's performance:


Flamenco version of a popular heavy metal song:


Classical guitar version of another popular heavy metal song:


Saxophone cover of a medieval era song:



. . . . now, what was your question again?

In any period of history there are fields that are more open to creative genius and other fields where all the genius work has been done and all that's left is assembly line work.

Every morning before getting up, I listen to a boy band song, rap music(sic), or a dance around the stage to make up for no musical talent Britany Spears type ditty.

Figure the day can't get any worse and I rise ready for anything life can throw at me! (except for flats....I hate flats.)

Then, I listen to Anneke. And I wonder if you weren't right all along.

Then

Duff Mckagan said words to the extent of you gotta live to make great metal. And I think he's right. My opinion is that metal is basically by and for people who know what it means to live life, in a way that folks who love soft just to be soft NPR sort of music cannot understand.

But most talented? Not really.

Hear hear


But if it's polished instrumentally and real in passion too it can also be a showcase for the best of what describes that genre
