I freely describe my ability as "a handful of chords and a heart full of good wishes"! I 'play' as a form of relaxation, purely for my own enjoyment. I would like to think I have musical tastes that cross pretty much all of the genres and I try to listen to the elements within the music. I think there might actually be more guitar in music now than ever. Even if it has been sampled and added, it had to be played by someone in the first place. I don't think it's going away anytime soon.
edit - Sorry, there are a lot of 'I's in there, it is early here and there hasn't been enough coffee yet!
