Playing a lot of Rocksmith has got me listening to guitar, and music in general, in a more nuanced way. Now some guitarists I wasn't interested in sound great to me, and my listening preferences have opened up to new genres.
One guitarist I never really enjoyed was The Edge from U2, but now I have a lot of respect for what he does. A new genre I've always kinda sorta enjoyed that I'm really loving now is the Chicago Blues, and a new guitarist I discovered in that genre is Guitar Shorty, who I highly recommend.
Anyone else experience changes in their musical preferences since picking up Rocksmith (or just learning an instrument, I guess)?
