So even though his experiment didn’t really work – he’s still not a huge fan of CCM – it’s a fun idea to try! Give it a shot yourself, and listen to a song or a genre that you don’t normally like. Can you discover new musical qualities in it?
I might have to give that a try with Nickelback. On second thought, maybe not…
