Question:Why are like 85% of users on UG blues/classic rock enthusiasts?

#1
Just wondering.
Is it because once you start playing guitar, you suddenly decide that the blues/classic rock is the coolest stuff to play on guitar, so you start becoming interested in the blues/classic rock? Or is it that learning guitar is so much more appealing to to blues/classic rock than, say, Metallica or Slayer fans?
Or a combination of both?

For those unable to comprehend sarcasm, see

And i know I'm going to get a bunch of people saying that they aren't, in fact, metalheads, and that they love (insert bland generic band title like greenday). I know, you're 14 and you want to be in a huge successful punk rock band, and you want it to be a trio, and you want to be the lead singer/guitarist, and you want to make funny jokes on stage, and you make songs that sound strikingly similar to blink-182 and greenday and you're proud of it.

I have something to say to you - grow up.

Anyways, i know there are users who aren't into metal, i said most, not all. If you still disagree, check out the bands and artist categories and see how many users are viewing which categories. Theres like 45 in the 2 metal sections, and like 7 in the classic rock section.

BTW: Who else thinks its ridiculous that there is 2 metal sections and only one classic rock section. As if The Beatles and AC/DC should be in the same category, but then metal needs 2 sections. Metal could be discussed in one thread, everyone says the same thing anyways.

I know im going to get flamed, because, as I said earlier, 85% of UG users are metalheads, and are going to be all like, "you asshole, metal is so hardcore and complicated, it kicks your musics ass, you dick" and "you suck", and maybe even an intelligent comment or two.

And I dont hate metal, I just hate alot of metal music. I think there is great metal, but not alot of it.

EDIT: Just because you play fast, doesn't make you a good guitarist. Speed isn't the only thing a good guitarist needs.

Wait, so the total of all UG users is 185%...
What the hell does this mean?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Yea, Sublime is a great band. You have an Underoath icon, so I think your opinion doesn't matter.

Well Blues and Rock use a lot of different techniques in playing more so than ska, punk of heavy metal. Blues teaches you to do a variety of things well as well as speed and rock is pretty much blues with added elements. I think that's why the majority of guitarists play mostly rock/blues.

Me personally I like a little of everything, though I don't play well.
