If you play very thechnical metal core (stuff like August Burns Red and Between The Buried And Me) can u pretty much play any type of rock easily? This does not include finger style. Thx

if you had those skills down you probably would be able to play most types of metal fairly well
but it doesnt necessarily translate across to other styles

No. If it's a style you're not familiar with then you need to learn it.

Well I would say if you can play BTBAM then you probably have the technique to play most types of music but whether you can from a theory point of view or not is a whole other matter.

I think it is a matter of feel.

Anyone can play the blues, but, do you have the feel for it to sound truly good.

Angus and Malcom are great examples-simple set ups, simple songs, yet they get their own sound because of how they play and treat their instruments, i.e., their feel.

Generally, if you can play well with one style of music, you can play at least decently with another one after you learn the rhythym and techniques. My girlfriend used to only play classical, but after I taught her how to play metal she adapted quite quickly.
