Isn’t it funny on how when you play mostly acoustic guitar, people immediately think you’re into country music, folk or bluegrass? It seems to be like that with every acoustic guitarist. Yes, most acoustic guitarists out there are into country, folk and bluegrass ’cause that’s what people would expect them to play when they pick up an acoustic guitar but not me, though! I maybe mostly an acoustic guitarist myself but my preferred genre of music is mostly rock n’ roll and metal.
Don’t get me wrong, though… I do like some country, folk and bluegrass but I’m not really all that big on that genre. I do like listening to Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams Sr., Sharon Van Etten and Patty Griffin but that’s about it. I’m not really all that huge on country and folk music.
I do try to get into more country and folk though but rock n’ roll and heavy music is my main genre. Most people seem surprised that I am mostly into rock and metal stuff.
I’ve always been into rock and metal ever since I was a child. When I was a child, I was listening to stuff like Twisted Sister, AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, early Metallica, Jethro Tull, The Clash, Aerosmith, etc. My love for rock n’ roll and metal never stopped.
In high school, I started listening to 90’s grunge, punk, some death metal, and hardcore.
These days I’m trying to focus on electric guitar more than acoustic, though. It’s hard to switch to electric ’cause I’m so used to playing acoustic guitar over the years.
While I do listen to all sorts of music, rock and metal would always be my main genres. I’ve always had a love for rock n’ roll and it’s the kind of music I wanna play myself if I ever get my own band going. I wished I picked up the guitar as a child but I didn’t pick up the guitar until the age of 18 after my first guitar instructor first introduced me to Led Zeppelin and Joe Satriani.
I do listen to a little bit of everything else like some blues, jazz, pop & rap but rock & metal will always be my no. 1. I just love hearing music with great guitar playing. My love for rock and metal will never die. I’ll never grow out of it!!! \m/
