As far as the guitarists' talents are concerned, I commend them for their abilities. But there is a lot of music that was popular during the baroque, classical, and romantic periods that people don`t recognize or appreciate today. You know why? Because it`s too intricate. It`s too complex. They can`t rap about high school on top of it. They can`t shred a solo on guitar on top of the inversions and augmentations. I would be impressed by that. I`m not going to keep on about my musical inclination. I know I`m talented, if you knew me, you`d agree. I don`t need to argue over the internet to prove my talents.
re:Sephrenia I`m glad the music moved you, but I don`t understand what you`re saying in the second comment. I think it`s supposed to be offensive, but I just can`t tell. Also, if I were to grace you with a rendition, you`d probably be so ridiculously gobsmacked, you`d die.

re:btpanther39 I apologize for spelling canon wrong. But I still hate this song. It's not like the first time I heard this piece, I suddenly chose to hate it. No, actually, I have listened to this piece for 18 years. I have been forced to play it for 15 years. I used to actually love this piece. But you have no clue how annoying this song gets after the first 40 or so times. And honestly, the reason that a LOT of people TODAY like this piece is because of it`s simplicity. There is nothing spectacular about this song. And people try to make it better by modernizing it. It really doesn`t help. It`s still the same 7 chords, except they`re now stealing them from a dead guy. Also it`s a very common chord progression. People recognize it from current songs and immediately identify with it. I have no clue as to why you think "In the club" is a good comparison to classical music. I think that it just reflects your actual musical tastes. But I agree. It would not have been popular
