Those of us that have been around a while are pretty genre generic. Personally, I like anything played from the heart.

I have an iPod playlist of live recordings that includes bluegrass, jazz, blues, country rock, somewhat classical, celtic...the only thing missing is polka! I just haven't found a live Weird Al recording yet. So yes, well played music, depending on my mood.

A friend of mine used to say "I like anything as long as it's extreme". Haven't seen him for a while, so he may be saying it yet.

I asked him if he meant stuff like Suicide, SPK and so on and he replied that he liked ANYTHING that was in any way extreme. Extremely beautiful or sad or joyful or whatever.

I think he's right. Good music is music played woth passion and feeling and spirit. I like that sort of music. I'm not that fussed on styles \:\)

Music should enhance a mood, not incite one.

As I once wisely said to myself... there's comfort in all forms and styles of music given the proper occasion and company.

It takes years to appreciate what this means and perhaps it was my father who got me started early by playing almost everything throughout the house. (in the '60s our house was wired completely with a PA system)

Favourite?
I love to drive and music that somehow gets me flying down an open stretch of empty road at 100mph+ gets me very high!
Rock On!

Well, yes. But for some music you'd have search very far and wide indeed before you found the right occasion and company.

So it's a lot easier to accept that for all practical purposes, some music's simply... crap.

Did I happen to mention that I live a rather sheltered life and Bar Mitzvahs, Swahili funerals, and square dance festivals aren't typically on my card. (I'm rarely invited )

This helps considerably \:D

Mmhhhh... yes. I've always lived a pretty sheltered life too.

Never owned one of those Thomas Organs with the light up keys, fer instance, so I missed the chance to find the right place and company to give myself over to a home organ rendition of "Born Free". Oh, well... if the Hindus are right, I'll get another shot at it. But only if I'm very bad to musicians. ;\)

While I'd generally classify myself as a roots rocker, I listen to a wide variety of music, so it's probably easier to name the styles I generally don't care for (although, even within these musical genres, there are individual tracks that I either like or don't mind):

- Rap/Hip Hop

- Electronica/Electronic Dance Music

- Disco

- Joan Baez-type Folk

The Pipes! Think about that will ya.

Is is an instrument or instrument of destruction.
I don't see George W. rolling in to Scotland but I'll tell ya...
It's not a beautiful thing they got going there.

And there's only one song for the damn thing. 1 bloody song and everyone has to mess up the arrangement and give it a new name!

....oh I know somebody's going to be offended... just wait, just wait Danny boy, just wait

I like a very wide range of music. I'm not a fan of most country music (Although I acknowledge the talent), bubble gum 50's stuff, speed/death/thrash/ metal(Once again, I realize the talent in the drummers and the guitar players).

I also can not stand any of the "music" that is piled into the rap, hip hop, gangster, dance, house, emo, blaaa, blaaa, blaaa stuff. Not my cup of tea.

It may seem limiting, but this really leaves hundreds of other styles that I really enjoy. My CD collection ranges from Yo Yo Ma to Metalica, from John Williams to Blind Faith and Frank Sinatra to Led Zeppelin.

I enjoy Classical, Jazz, Classic Rock, Blues, Folk, Big Band and may others.

Here's to good music and how it can make us feel.

I LOVE the pipes, it's a sound that really puts something in the blood. It's a bit like licking a battery but more intense. \:\)

Here in Milan, we get bagpipers at Christmas. They play in duos with guys that play the shawm , which is like a primitive oboe. It's quite a tradition.

Lickin' a battery!

Man it's like droppin' a toaster in yer tub fer christ sakes.
I've seen peoples teeth literally fall out of their head when pipers walk by.
It's why they put them up in front of the the guys with rifles.

Honestly I appreciate them I do. But only on November 11th some time before noon of each year.

I'm sure there's a time and place for everything and it just might be your luck or peril that you're there at that specific time.

I love the pipes they can make my blood boil, or move me to tears, depending on what's being played on those 9 notes.

I love well played guitar driven music, be it blues, jazz, rock, bluegrass, and even exceptionally well done country, although I rarely find myself drawn there.

Buddy Guy, Jimi, SRV, Clapton, George Benson, Joe Pass, Robben Ford, Steve Vai, Satch, Bugs Henderson, Danny Gatton, Roy Buchanan, BB, Albert, and Freddie King, Luther Allison, Santana, Mel Brown, Gatemouth, Lenny Breau, Jeff Healey, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Mick Taylor, and Johnny Winter are representative of artists I aspire to play like someday.
