What Style do you play?

Okay guys. What style of guitar/music do you mostly play. Maybe it has changed over the years or have to just stuck to mainly one genre? I tried to include a wide range of styles in the poll. These were off the top of my head so apologies if I missed yours out. In case I have please vote 'other' and specify what it is. Multiple votes are possible here as well!!

P.s I had to put Thrash/Doom/Death in together. There are now way too many subgenres of the metal scene.

I mostly play NeoClassical stuff. Been into this genre since 1984. I don't really like the term 'Shred'. That along with mainstream rock for me.

Re: What Style do you play?

Sorry, I had to choose a few. Mainstream, Instrumental and other.

No punk option?

I suppose this isn't really a punk type forum.

Re: What Style do you play?

Sorry man, no Punk option. You can only have 15 different poll choices. If I had to fit in every style and subgenre there would be 100's of choices. I've just realised that I forgot to put Prog rock in!! Gonna get flamed for that!!

Re: What Style do you play?

I play metal, classic rock, some alternative, and alittle instrumental. I dont play much instrumental purely because I suck to bad to play most of the Vai/Satch stuff. As far as "metal"? Thats a really broad term. When you say metal it could mean alot of stuff. Some people I know consider really old sabbeth and priest metal while other only consider bands like mastadon or killswitch. I play thrash metal, old school metal,and some hair metal.

Re: What Style do you play?

I'm missing
-rock 'n roll (50s)
-hard rock (GnR, VH)
-psychedelic rock (Jimi, Doors, Floyd)
-grunge (PJ, AIC)
-alternative rock (RATM, Living Colour)
and prog (rock&metal)

numetal seems to be missing as well, even though I wouldn't have voted for it.

Re: What Style do you play?

Guys I only could pick 15 options for the poll. I tried to make it as general as I could. There is no way I could have included every style/genre/subgenre in it. That's why the 'Other' option is there. Cheers!!!
