I was just wondering:

How many UG'ers actually DO NOT play Metal?

It seems that most people who play (that I know) hate metal before they start playing guitar and after a few months of playing, they fall in love. I'm not saying that I don't think metal has any merit, I am just wondering who here actually doesn't play metal.

No metal at all for me.

I only play acoustic nowadays. Not even picked up my electric in about 6 months.

I never cared much for metal. The speed is too much for my guitar skills and I prefer other types of music more.

I'm more of a blues/classic rock player

I don't.

But not to be special like some people.

I play/write lots of metal, but im also heavy into blues, jazz, country, american roots etc.
#17
That's all I used to play but I've completely stopped with all of that and I'm focusing solely on jazz now. It's much more captivating.

I play whatever sounds good to me at that moment.

Sometimes I play blues, most of the time I rock, sometimes I play metal. I even play classical, and I've been known to dabble in sort of techno-like stuff. I don't limit anything I play.

I play metal, but don't limit myself to it.

Metal more often than not sucks, but unfortunately so does a lot of music....
Does being successful truly make you a sell out? Can't you do your own original music and be successful because of it?

Who thinks they are special because they don't play metal?

Occasionally. I play it to improve my speed and dexterity, mostly. Or if I'm feeling particularly aggressive.

I play metal, but not "cuz it's tech". When I play metal, it's to loosen up and play something primitive.
#28
Occasionaly, Metal's such a unique and amazing genre, that I couldn't possibly avoid it.
#29
I'm the opposite... I originally picked up the guitar planning on playing tech-death and black metal.

Now, I usually only write and play acoustic fingerpicked/percussive stuff (like Andy McKee but not as awesome)
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.
