As with the evolution of any substance, product or even species, music tastes have changed hugely in the past 70 years. From the methods of production to the instruments being used, few things are the same. Back in the 1950s, musicians relied on physical instruments such as guitars, drums basses and keyboards, whereas now all those instruments can be emulated electronically. Although there is no real reason as to why tastes changed the way they did, they changed, nonetheless. But we can even venture further back, a hundred years before the invention of the guitar and we can see musicians at the time using brass, woodwind and stringed instruments to make orchestral music.
