If you could have one genre of guitar playing come back into the same popularity it had when it was famous what would it be. I know there is alot more but i listed the obvious things so have at it.

98% of teens have been around or have had alcohol. Put this in your sig if you like bagels.
Hmm. I'd say Power Metal is my favorite for guitar, but as for music in general, I'd say something along the lines of Goth-New Wave- Alt-Rock, like The Cure's Pornography, Disentigration and The Head On the Door.
I'm back, you douchebags.

too bad grunge was a scene basically and not a sound.

i'd make it exactly like the 80s for eternity.

alternative was great and the mainstream was decent.
Southern Rock, to have bands like the Allman brothers, and Skynard back would be awesome.

Yeah, I'd love to live in the 80's. Everything about it. The Music rocked balls. The Shredding, The Creativity, New Wave etc. I love ereything about it.

In guess out of the choice delta blues, but I like music in the other genres as well.

Therefore your argument is rubbish, as well as being full of profanity and anti-Semitic. Are you Mel gibson, by any chance?
None of those options, so I chose Heavy Metal which I also enjoy.

I play mostly virtuouso music, such as Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, Friedman, Becker, Petrucci etc.

I can see it now. "Dark Thrones and Black People".

I pretty much wank something small and sleek.


As much as everyone enjoys rocking out to a bit of Def Leppard and Bon Jovi, I would kill myself if I had to listen to it all the time. I voted for Neoclassical basically because I have no idea where progressive/power metal would fit.

PM La Qotsa if you want to join. No emotion? Pah!
I said Psychodelic.

Mainly because it revolutionized music, and it was really like the 20th century's Renaissance. It was a big artistic jump and ultimately led to some of the greatest genres we know today, whether it was similar or completely different from the genre.

Plus, the Jam band would make a comeback, and, hopefully, more virtuosos.
