I was just wandering why there is no dedicated prog thread....
???
Why is it mixed with 80s and shred?
Anyone who wants to try and start a dedicated prog forum an join the group in my sig, but I still dunno why UG didnt make one...

Because then we would have to have forums for every single subgenre, which is not going to happen.

Yeah i guess it would be kind of stupid to have a forum for like-

Death Metal
Black Metal
Metalcore
Rock
Poprock
Rap
Pop
Metalcore
PowerMetal
Prog

etc...

I think Myung-trucci actually meant why does it have toe be 80s Rock, Shred & Progressive? Why not 70s Rock, 80s Rock and Shred? Or 80s Rock, Rock and Roll & 90s Rock? I believe the REAL answer you are searching for is: Aliens. Blame it on the aliens.
Guess what scale this song is in and I'll give you an eCookie.

I can answer that question for you. They all share the interest of technical guitar playing. Remember, this is a prog GUITAR forum not a prog music forum ;-)

You could make a case for each genre or subgenre here. It's this way, nobody's really bothered by it since it works, done.
A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died. Hakuin answered 'How am I supposed to know?'
'How do you not know? You're a Zen master!' exclaimed the samurai.
'Yes, but not a dead one,' Hakuin answered.
