I could say positive and negative things about just about every genre!
Things I don't like, that are not exclusive to Blues (but sometimes inherent in it) are:
- Too long of a solo.
- Too many solos.
- Non-stellar solo.
- (There's a theme there.)
- Overly repetitious.
- Too long of a tune.
- Too bitter lyrics.
- Too many Blues tunes at once.
I've composed Blues tunes, and loved it!
And I love what has been done to some Blues songs, such as some of early Led Zeppelin.
But it seems to me that a lot of folks would enjoy Blues more if it were in smaller doses.
As far as color of skin, or size of body, or whatever, well, unless there's a fantastic-sounding venue (great quality, not too loud), since I usually prefer studio recordings to live sound, I may not even know what the person looks like. I listen to music for music. If I like the tune, I do; if I don't, I don't. And then there's the mood I am in.
I appreciate nearly every genre. I can enjoy or even love tunes from most. But, like most people, I do have my personal preferences. And there are few or no genres that I would say that I hate. There may be things about it that I dislike or hate, but usually (if not always) not the whole genre itself.
Maybe we can start a new genre, and call it – I don't know – Yellows! LOL, where we sing about happier stuff, to help balance out our own blues. Cheers & Blues!
