I am one of the few I know of who listens to an enjoys every genre of music pretty much. I'm always trying to expand my tastes. I have been known to listen to Eminem, Eric Clapton, Good Charlott, Chopin, Billie Holiday, Rage Against the Machine and Koko Taylor in a matter of an hour. Even still, I have favorites within the music I like. I consider myself to be a big Jimi Hendrix fan. I love the sounds to come from the folk-rock scene and love Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson. I am enamoured with the Blues, especially the greats- BB King, Ry Cooder, Jimi Hendrix (he is a bluesman more than a rocker in my book), Muddy Waters and Koko Taylor. I prefer the driving electric Chicago blues. This is not to say though that lately I've been growing and expanding a collection of Billie Holiday. For those of you unfamiliar and who like old jazz, I highly recommend her music. Her voice is quite different from the quintessential voice of Ella Fitzgerald. As a mediocre guitarist myself, I enjoy playing blues and folk riffs and jamming with friends from time to time. Sometimes the sounds and lyrics come out good and other times not, but I find playing is incredibly fun. Of course I pick up something here or there, but I don't take my playing very seriously which is probably why I find it so entertaining. So with all that about me, what do you like for music? I highly doubt anybody here will list something I don't like. The only thing I require about all music is that you respect the tastes of others, especially in the open forum environment. Feel free, however, to snicker at the person going down the road with the 8,000,000 watt stereo system blaring music you find grating.
