But I do find many of them need to broaden their horizons and become more original in their choices as a listhener - there is so much great music past and present to draw on, not just from the United States but from Europe, Scandinavia, Brasil and elsewhere the musical world to become a source of inspiration. Look outside the box and find your own gurus to follow as well as the one or two more fashionable players everyone seems to focus on.
I say find your own favourites and listen with a questioning and analytical ear to get closer to the source!
I've added some links to my YouTube page if you need some inspiration to get your ears started. Do leave some comments there, I'd love to know what you think.
