I would guess that if you were to pick one instrument for Dallas the guitar would the first on your mind. The image of cowboy boots and long rimmed hats is almost certainly a factor to why. In the performance arena there are many large venues in the city that almost certainly center around the "Gee-tar". The sound of the guitar just blends in well with the sounds of this diverse city in Texas.
What are your favorite places in Dallas for some great tunes? I would love to hear what music in this city really drives it home for you.
