Wellllllllll, there are a few ways that you can look at both free playing
'if this was a keyboard, would you be listening to it?' questions.
I have listened to a lot of both, and have played a lot of both, and I
both have value for there instructional value alone. Now you know a bunch
things that you can do on guitar. Now I can make some wacked out sounds,
effects save a little distortion, my fingers, and a pick.
Consider them a theory class.
Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately
explained by stupidity.
