The art of the instruments. This is when musicians actually played real instruments. When the guitar player hit the stage with that opening shredding chord and sets the drummer for the breakdown drum roll, you hear the bass player pounding away at the round wound bass strings in synchronicity with the drummer. That is what used to make the rhythm section of a band in my day. Flawless vocals accompanying the mix to complete the perfect elements of a hit song. But what happened to the great musicians in todays society? We have seemed to lost an original amazing talent, and replaced it with studio generated instruments that have a body but not a true soul.The studio musician is indeed a dying breed, and its up to us to keep the sound of a true and real instrument alive for everyone to hear, for the next upcoming generation musician who can then study and understand the true art of the instruments.
