Default A poll for an essay I am planning(what draws you towards a certain band)

I have to write an essay on what the "best" musical instrument is. I will focus mainly on rock, punk and metal bands ranging anywhere from 60's to present day. A very vague topic in my opinion as no guidelines are given following this. So my idea is to head towards:

What instrument draws you or gets your interest(generally) or the first instrument you listen for when listening to a new track or band?

Very vague i know.

yup most people would say guitar is easiest to write songs on and such. Plus it simply gets more attention than any other instrument from most people. A lot of classic songs are classic just because of what the guitar is doing, and not really any other instruments.

Funnily (is that word?) enough, bass. Usually when the right type of bass is there (a strong driving bassline that isn't extravagant), the song has a nice structure to it.

No one instrument can convince me to listen to a band. It's about the overall sound from the band itself.

It's no one sound for me either. It's always the whole sound that gets me interested.

Guitar and Bass. i listen to not only if the guitarist can play, but if the bassist is actually trying to play an instrument and not just f*cking around. i hate it when i can't hear the bass in the songs

I'd say the guitar as its so versitle as there are not many other instruments that can used along with the voice alone to allow one person to make music. As well as its place combined with other instruments.
