The internet - has it ruined music for over a generation?
Not apropos of the thread title but -
I’m reminded of comments attributed to John Lennon: "The biggest crime the Beatles ever committed was bringing rock’n’roll to the middle classes"
Were it not for the mass participation in popular and folk music symbolised by the ubiquitous guitar then most the people disdaining this or that instrument or approach would be too snobbish for trad anyway. They’d all still be playing twee music from the dots as learnt in the lessons that mummy drove them to every week.
