    Cynical version: because it’s an order of magnitude easier to become a mediocre guitar player than it is to become a mediocre horn player, and electronics came along and let a mediocre guitar player have the volume and range of sounds of a whole band of horn players. Economics: lower barrier to entry, earlier return on investment.

    There are other forces, notably abandonment of the steam engine’s human-scale rhythms in favor of the roar of IC and jets, but economics rules again as the main impulse.
