    Depending on the circumstances, I can get into any of those genres and other genres not even listed.

    Overall, I would guess that drummers have the most diverse preferences because rhythm is a crucial element of nearly all styles of music.

      Yes I agree, I also like a lot of genres that because of space limitations I could not list. But try to think about the ones you always prefer over others. I prefer rock mostly whenver I turn my ipod on the first song I listen to is a rock song (of any trend)

            Hey Bejewled One: didn't know you were a goth rock fan. I need to be in just the right mood for industrial and I'm guessing my goth preferences are pretty focused (I'm a huge Rasputina fan).

              It must be a jewel (or price sticker) thing. That's also the problem with all the rock and metal flavors...how do you define them? Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Rob Zombie (all of whom I love)...Industrial? Prog Metal?

              BTW, you need to add a Blues category and I'm not talking R&B...I mean the BLUES! And reggae...dat's cool stuff mon!

                Rammstein is goth? Heh heh, not the first band that came to my mind when thinking of the genre.

                Industrial metal, yeah. I have a feeling I'm gonna like this thread.

                  Blues definitely needs to be added.

                  Funny how no country votes have yet to appear.

                    I think I'll have to rephrase to "I thought I liked Goth"

                      I'd vote for goth. and for Rammstein. But not for Rammstein AS goth...but blues and reggae/ska...and R&B is probably going to confuse people, do you mean R&B from our generation, or R&B of their generation, which is totally different and not even related kind of thing...

                        The electronics are a hidden secret in the country market. They have been using electronic pads for 25 years to get a solid cross stick sound at concert volume, but nobody wants to admit it. There is so much fad in the music business. I remember when you had to play a Tele through a Peavy amp or they would laugh you out of a country bar. Same with Les Pauls and Strats through a Marshal or Fender if you were in a rock band. Never mind what sounds best, just be cool! I like music that is good and tastefull, I really don't care about the label.

                          Well my banner makes it fairly clear, but you do need to add Blues for sure, though my preference is Blues Rock (Pat Travers etc).
                          Voted Metal Rock and Prog so far!

                            FB's got a great point about metal. All the local metal bands are screamo/death/thrash types and it's the most godawful crap I've ever sat thru.

                            Now, two bands I'm just getting into, Epica and Kamelot, are metal but obviously very different. Our band's covered two Nightwish songs and are working on a third and we likes us our Lacuna Coil (see a trend here? We like metal front by babes with awesome voices). Not to mention all the "classic" metal (Ack****, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath and a bazillion others).

                              That's quite good to know actually. Makes me feel better about assigning a pad for cross stick instead of trying to get reliable rim action on a snare. Actually, that's a trick I learned from a fellow local edrummer who gigs regularly with two guys with a lot of professional experience in Nashville.
