I don’t think it is less cool I just think that with more choice of ways to make a sound in music it has created new sounds and musical genres and possibly clouded the view on guitarists but it is still very cool you just have a bit more competition right!
Think about this, all around today are loads of massive music shops the size of hyperstores, far more of and bigger than we ever had in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s and all have walls and walls of guitars. If it wasn’t cool to play guitar these guys wouldn’t be selling them on such a massive scale and they’ll all be falling like flies but that isn’t happening.
Another thing is that today more royalties are paid out to ageing rockstars than any other area of music. Now these acts are all pretty well guitar driven and their gigs are not just full of ageing rock fans either, there are kids and grandkids of these ageing fans really zoned into this stuff that weren't even born when some of these guys should have died the first time around. But they are all here, alive and kicking with plenty of life in them yet. And so has the Guitar! Be Cool – ROCK ON!!
