    Hard Jazz or Prog Rock or anything funky that showcases poor musical etiquette while inciting curiosity.

    You pays, I plays...

    But if I pick it up to mess around, jangly Americana, English blues, punky/thrashy/indie.

    For some reason, whenever I pick up a guitar, it tends to give me something like Piedmont Blues.

    I actually got the Tele to play stone country.

    But, in its case late at night, it dreams of jazz.

    Even the Esquire wants to sound like a piano if you give it a chance and dial in the amp for the bridge pickup.
    Clarity, brilliance, touch sensitivity, honesty, and the ability to snarl like a tenor when pushed...

    There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind.
