Hey UG'ers. Here's my first poll in the pit


What's the general trend in playing style? Be it metal? Be it jazz? I'm a blues man myself. Are there music majors or tab junkies or self taught's or all of the above?

Le rock on.

EDIT: Rock and pop are also in the poll, you just cant see them.

Im self-taught, but I use theory and sheet.

I listen to anything I can Chopin, Vampire Weekend, DJ Shadow, and Rory Gallagher. If it sounds good, then it sounds good.

My playing is a mix between Nick Valensi, Nick Zinner, Jeff Beck, and Johnny Marr.

I don't try to write in a style, I just write the music. Its the fans and label's jobs to decide how bad I suck and what genre I am.

What is indie exactly? I always thought that it meant independent music (no major labels), but it seems that it's a genre.

#16
mostly everything, but mostly rock and indie, to be honest your poll sucks, as you've left out major genres
#17
I mostly play metal with guitar, but with my bass is all experimental/prog. rock

& I usually just use tabs to learn everything, but have started trying to work things out by ear

I suppose it's mostly metal, but there are also some punk, classical, rock, blues, and occasionally jazz influences in my playing.

Thrash/hardcore/shred/blues but mainly thrash so I said metal.
Please excuse my godawful username. I was thirteen.
#22
I express my music in whatever I feel at the moment


so shit


tbh, I'd say alternative, acoustic, metal, metalcore, blues and sometimes post-hardcore and death metal

where is sludge? where is post rock? where is hardcore? where is post-hardcore?
my needs, this poll fits not.

I use tabs for guitar since I can't hear chords for shiz.
Bass i try to play by ear.

Mostly metal/rock the last few years but I just got a tele and a fender amp so I am actually learning some clean stuff, jazz, funk and country pickn. Pretty fun, overall I guess I play all of the listed a bit.

i guess the stereotype would be "metal-core". I don't really know or care if they are real genres, but "metal-core/death-core" i guess would be my playing styles.

If you really wanted a successful poll that would please everyone here, there would be like 120 options on there because people don't like to generalize, however you don't even have rock or pop or even and electronic genres. Fail poll is hard fail.

Metal/Blues.
Oh, you wouldn't want an angel watching over
Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch
#31
When it comes to guitar, I mostly just play classical. When it comes to bass, I play punk, hardcore, funk, or whatever I want really.

I find this to be the most accurate assessment of the inadequacies of my poll. I assumed all to be forms of rock, and if pop is what I hear on the radio ala greenday, the poll is better off without it.

Mixed indie, jazz and funk.

I voted Indie because it's kind of close, but my playing tends to be very Post-Rock inspired with bits of Jazz, Blues and Minimalism thrown in. Think Modest Mouse/GY!BE/MONO/dredg.

In spite of all the metal bashing, there sure are a lot of us metalheads.
