Well I guess this might be a purely subjective topic, but it has always been said by some that when it comes to guitar oriented music, nothing tops the "glory days" of the late 70s to the early 90s. Admittedly, when you listen to music from these time periods there is an unmistakable sound that captivates you in a way that is seldom experienced today. The intricate guitar work and infectious melodies of that time gave rise to many of the guitarist that have influenced many of us today. This isn't to say that guitar oriented music today can't do the same, but it seems to be a rare occurrence when you find music or even a guitar player that really stands out today. What do you think? While there are obvious exceptions today, has guitar oriented music gotten better over the years? Or has it generally gotten less creative?
