Today's Music has Many Genres
Music today lacks the souring guitar solos of the 70s, but it still has the 90s influenced acoustic touch which makes it possible for an amateur to play most of the music on piano or guitar. There is huge variety of style and genre within mainstream Pop right now, and all are getting air time in a mish mash. Each decade of style since the 60s is represented in the sounds of today’s music. One observation that surprised me, though, is the lack of identifiable blues. It was only in the Country music, not the rock that I could hear echoes of the blues.
