LOL I hear ya. Part of me says to myself "just pick the prettiest, play it and enjoy it, and don't worry about the details."O.K., I'll bite. I can't stand it when people get so ANALytical on shit like this. First off, you are asking a subjective question. Only you can decide what you like, so why are you asking us? Second, if you play in a band setting like you say, by the time you hear it with drums, bass, and whatever else in the mix, it will greatly diminish what your anal ears are hearing anyway. Just me though, lol. Hey, you asked!
But I just can't help myself. I've always been into the details. I want to know the how and why. It's just me wanting to know how things tick. I'm a life long learner so I get a kick out of this stuff.
I appreciate all opinions, which is why I often ask others what they think. It helps my decision making process. Sometimes I need a good kick in the pants too!
