This is for musicians mostly, but people who just like music are more than welcome to reply... When you listen to music do you tend to switch focus on different instruments at different times? I play guitar in my 'band' but in the past few years I have become more educated in other instruments (specifically bass, percussion, keyboard) and once in a while I get in moods where I focus on one intrument more than others. I was in a really big bass mood for almost a year, and it made it hard to try and decipher guitar chords. Then in the past few days, I got in a really big drum craze. I've played the drums on occasion but am not even close to the ability of the bands I listen to. But I still phases the other instruments out for the most part and now it sounds weird!
