I play most anything. I guess most of my playing turns into something like folk/blues. Strangely I don't play the stuff I spent my life listing to. Weird how that happens. :D

My solo work: Classical Guitar - music of Bach, Dowland, Vivaldi, Brouwer, film themes and so on.

My band work: Swing, jazz, pop standards - music of Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, show songs and so on.

The solo work gets more bookings - restaurants, weddings and family events.

Rock n Roll, Disco, Big Band Swing, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, Country & Western, Mambo, Merengue, Samba, Calypso, Soca, Reggae, Beach Music, Motown, Classic Oldies, Doo Wop, New Age, Hip Hop, Bubble Gum, Broadway, and one Opera Song

I play music for a living and that means whatever I think will please my audience I'll try to learn. The two things I don't do are Heavy Metal and Rap - I'm a middle aged guy and I play to a middle-aged to elderly audience most of the time.

When we play in church we play contemporary christian. At benifits or out on the street it is gospel blues.

Let me add from my experience that learning to both appreciate and play different kinds of music will more than likely help you play better in your chosen field.

Many of the country music stars and session players in Nashville are quite accomplished jazz musicians as well as excellent Nashville-Pop musicians.

Classical music themes from Bach, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Gliere and others infiltrate rock music, because many rock musicians listen to and play the classics as well.

Music is music, and the more different kinds you learn, the better musician you will be. So get out of your comfort zone, listen to everything, and learn how to play many different styles of music. You'll be glad you did.

Ha ha ..... I do play the stuff I've spent my life listening to. Classic Rock mostly but on the heavier side.

Light classic rock, pop. I'm a lazy cowboy-chords rhythm player, so any song I like that fits into those parameters is fair game.

It is difficult to answer when one does not understand the question.

I am a child of the 60's/70's so the music I play as well as my playing style is rooted in that era of rock, folk, country, pop and jazz. As some of you professional musicians have wisely noted, it is most beneficial to keep a broad mindset.

Pretty much everything these days... Started with metal, then to prog, classical, then to fusion, jazz, blues pretty hard, singer songwriter, dabbles in country, into world music, back to metal, harder into blues, straight rock... round and round it goes!

Well,
What's in a name?
Metal!
Btw, I have been playing for 25 years, yep, I'm old,
BUT.....One of the heaviest, most brutal bands I have Ever heard is /(was?) called Mortification, and it was Christian, which is fine with me. Black Sabbath, Cliff Burton era Metallica, Led Zeppelin, even some REO Speedwagon once in a while!
Just sayin.. 8)
