And or are you interested in learning any new types of music? I, myself, personally, have experimented, to a certain degree of success in many styles of music. Nothing satisfies my soul quite as much as just rocking out.

I've done Ragtime, Dixieland, jazz standards( I don't consider myself a jazz guitar player thank you) really bad classical. I got really good at playing a fast bluegrass chicken pickin style with pedal steel guitar riffs when I played in a country band playing Ricky Skaggs music for a long time. I have dabbled in some heavy metal music. I like that okay but it's definitely not my favorite. Everybody's got the blues I've done my share that. I'm a balladeer in that I have done that too but not too much of a level of success with that. I have done what I considered to be a fairly good Frank Zappa imitation, whatever style it is that he played.

My best loved music that I am most adept at seems to be blues-based rock on the heavier side. When I rock out on that I like to think I sound like a combination of Eric Clapton and Lindsey Buckingham with a mishmash of other influences.
I have recordings to backup everything I've said here. 270 of them.

Always interested in new types.

I tend to gravitate towards the blues and blues based rock when I play tho. I can play other styles obviously, but the blues feels natural to me

I'm not sure tbh. If I did, it would be a slow project just because I've got a lot on my plate atm. But I'm always down to trade ideas and record some music with some cool people!

Pretty much the same here. Moreso with my bass playing, but over the past few years that I've been playing guitar a lot more, I'm copying styles less and less.

i play a lot of different music.

i write a lot of rock/blues

but i have always enjoyed learning heavy metal and punk songs the most.
Anything from cannibal corpse to sepultura to cradle of filth to Tool, deftones, chevelle...
all the way to ramones, misfits, etc to very "post punk/post rock" like The Cure.

i think diversity is the key we're all searching for in our playing

I just bought my first bass guitar yesterday and spent the day playing Blink, Nirvana, Iron Maiden and Metallica riffs.

If i'm playing a 'type' of music on my guitar then I guess it would be a lot of indie folk shit on my classical guitar

I try to play a variety of styles, but I'm probably best at classical at the moment. I'm playing a gig next week and my setlist includes songs by Pink Floyd, Elliot Smith, Nickelback, Michael Jackson, Between The Buried and Me, John Mayer, classical and jazz pieces, and some others.


It's both a gift and a curse. I kind of wish I could focus more on one type of playing and get really good at that, but also I'm just not satisfied playing the same things over and over.

i play mostly 70s style hard rock/metal and blues/blues rock. working on a bit of country to please the mrs. i'm open to other styles but would most likely try to find ways to incorporate them into what i'm playing now.

I am a scatterbrain also. Not all rock 'n roll is totally based in blues but even the most melodic rock and roll has elements of blues in it. It's hard to find a rock 'n roll song that doesn't have a blues idiom in it somewhere So I know what I am, rock 'n roll guitarist who can't resist trying new things. If you learn some jazz stuff you can make your kick ass rock 'n roll sound a little bit more interesting I think. I also like melodic pop rock because it's fun to improvise a melody over it when it comes time to do a solo. The Beatles, the most melodic rock band in history has elements of blues in over half of the songs if not more. Probably much more.

My band play alt-rock/prog stuff but whenever I pick up a guitar on my own its pretty much just country stuff I play, or I max the reverb and make the house sound like a spaghetti western.
