Are the musicians before us better? Are the artists before us better? Who's to say?

Better questions are..has the best song already been written? the best painting already created?

Sure, now we have more tools and low barrier to entry, that should only increase the likelihood of the best talent coming in to this field. I'm excited to see what can be created as a result.

A lot of people do say the musicians of years before were better. I think it's more likely that the ones we still remember today were the best of their time, and that the best of our time will be remembered the same way by future generations.
