I don't think you can have a linear order for music genres, take a look at the scene from school of rock where jack black is at the board drawing it out.

I don't really understand. Are you going to do this in chronological order or something?

If you are, remember that ska came before reggae.

Let me tell you now, this will not work. Many genres can take influences from multiple genres. Metal, for example, can have traits of blues, classical, hardcore, rap and techno, and that's only counting stuff I have personally heard! Punk is often fused with other genres as well, and I'm sure techno and rap would be too.

Every genre can be as closely related to another genre as the artist wants it to be.

Where did the term 'ska' come from anyway?

I'm tempted to think it has something to do with skateboarding... Lots of skaters listen to ska.
#17
Generally,I agree with most things on the list but as someone else said,a genre can be influenced by many other genres like funk metal,folk metal, rapcore etc.
#18
Please change it so that hardcore never touches metal.

It was really only during the mid Romantic era and onward that composers started to incorporate ethnic musical vernaculars in their classical works. Nationalism and the interest in exoticism surfaced around the mid 1800s and only then did the composers start using folk songs and native music cultures in classical music. But eras before this (Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, early Romantic) did not suggest any folk inspirations.

classical and jazz can't be close to eachother.

Even though the cultures are polarized, jazz based its fundamental use of theory on European classical music.
