Classic Rock music is very popular and a favorite with those who grew up listening to it and those who have listened to it since they were young. It was once a very popular style mostly defined by rock radio formats in the early 1970’s, growing out of AOR, Album Oriented Rock (or AOR for short), a more traditional style of music which had been around for many decades prior to that.
Although there was a time when people dismissed it as “silly” or even “old fashioned,” with time and the progression of technology and with a more modern musical taste, Classic Rock music is becoming a popular choice. It is no longer defined mainly by a music genre. It has now expanded to include a whole host of styles and genres that can be heard today.
Some people think that classic rock music is old, and boring, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Some of today’s popular artists were influenced by rock music at one point in their careers, and they also continue to play and perform similar styles.
Rock music is something that you can learn to play. Many kids who are interested in playing guitar learn some basic chords and patterns when they are young and then they can move on to more advanced music styles later in life. As children they may not be aware of this but they do learn the basics and once they become teenagers, they can learn more advanced skills and develop them further.
The music genre is very versatile, especially if you play a variety of instruments. It is very easy to make music if you are a beginner and it doesn’t take a lot of experience to get a little better and learn more advanced techniques. Learning how to play guitar or any instrument takes dedication and time, but it does not take much at all. Even those with experience can use the experience to improve themselves.
Classic rock music is something that is loved by everyone in some way shape or form. Whether you are an old fan or just looking for an alternative to what you listen to today, there is something for everyone. Even those who don’t like rock music don’t really dislike classic music and would enjoy some of it if they knew where to look.
If you have never listened to rock music before, you may be a bit intimidated. However, if you know a few basic chords or basic rhythms then you should find it easy and fun to learn some basic guitar and music theory.
Remember, if you have ever seen any of the classic rock movies then you probably knew something about the music genre and may want to check them out sometime. You may be pleasantly surprised at what you discover.
