Good day fellows,

Here's the thing: I started with heavy metal guitars until I got bored of the uniform sonority and the theatrality of the genre. Then I really wanted a good, versatile guitar, which became the American Deluxe Telecaster. I wanted to play twinkly emo and pop-punk with it..

But then I went to college last year (it's funny how taste reflects your maturity) to study musicology. I became acquainted with Classical music and gradually fell in love. I was deeply moved by the rich sound and subliminality. Sadly: I didn't play guitar at all that year, also because I stopped taking lessons (after 7 years), and the band quit.

Now I fear that I might lose my interest in the sometimes raw sound of the guitar. But I payed much bones for it, I was/am pretty ok at it (people still see me as a guitarist) and the guitar always meant something for me in harder times. Although playing might fig. take me back to that..

So I rechecked some good telecaster guitarists (Ed Bickert, John Scofield, Roy Buchanan etc.) and for some weird reason it's mainly interesting (although honestly) to me -currently- on an intellectual level: 'how does the guitarist make things work'...
All with all, I like listening to the music, but I'm not sure if I love it already

My question I want to pose is: is there a good chance that I will feel emotion and spirituality from this music after I give myself the chance to immerse myself in the style (which I did with classical music) and practice the art, instead of just listening (idem)? Will I learn to re-appreciate the tone of the guitar as well (although I still enjoy the motority of playing the instrument)?

Be happy to hear anything from you

Cheers from Holland

Im sorry, I just don't see how you could argue that hardcore isn't metal. That just seems arrogant to me.

Yes, its its own kind of metal, but its still metal.
