So this is just how I've been feeling about a lot of the current online guitarists, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying anyone is bad/crap, I mean I'm one of these kinds of players as well It just seems whenever I see someone making a solo album or a band releases an album/song they almost all sound the same generic Plini/Polyphia progy djent thing. Besides some of the older most notable current players like Rick Graham, Martin Miller, Andy James, Angel Vivaldi etc no one seems to really stand out now, like they all watched the same star licks videos or something. I used to get excited about seeing all these new guitarists coming out with songs or YT vids maybe 4-5 years ago, but now it is almost like everyone is a 0-0-0-0 "insert random tap lick" 0-0-0-0-0-0 whilst using a fret wrap kind of player. I grew up listening to players who all had their own style like Greg Howe,Vinnie Moore, Malmsteen, Batio etc, even when you had clones they at least had something unique as well, someone like a Chris Impellitteri etc. This has me wondering, is guitar, or I should say instrumental guitar, becoming stagnant?
