Most musicians adapt fairly rapidly to new instrument interfaces - as long as they're logical and consistent in operation.
I would amend that to say "Most younger/incredibly creative musicians..." as, believe it or not though I'm sure you're aware, musicians can be a downright stodgy bunch when something newfangled comes along that "all the kids are using" even when it's "logical and consistent" (yours truly guilty as charged).
Darn kids, always changing the game before I'm done playing...
Neither incredibly talented or young I'd say.
In my experience, most musicians can learn and adapt to just about anything - even though I know many who choose not to.
In my case, I hate popping and slapping on bass. I strongly dislike the sound. So I generally refuse to play a bass that way - even though I did make it a point to be able to play the 'slap style' in order to prove
I could if I wanted to.
I still have enough snark
in me that I sometimes enjoy those occasions when a young bass 'slapper' takes issue with my opinion and sarcastically suggests I feel that way because I can't do it. That's when I'll rip through a 3-minute Flea/Wooten/Miller-inspired bit of bass wanking without breaking a sweat, and then just arch an eyebrow. Next I'll run through a classic Bach or jazz-type walking bass line and ask them if they can also play that way too... (Mustn't allow the little sods to generation gap us, right? Bwahahahahaha!)
I think most bona fide musicians I've known feel the same way. It's not so much we can't
as we often choose not to
- because we don't care for the "new" sound or style.
