it's hard to write about my own musical taste in a small blurb. i like so much that i'll try and talk about what i don't like. here goes.....i don't like bad music. most every genre has it's bad apples. and then there are some genres that are just plain bad. actually, i will try and list as many musical styles that i like as i can. here goes, onto the computer as they come out of my mind: classical, baroque, classic jazz, cuban, hip hop, underground hip hop, indie rock, some emo, classic rock, folk, contemporary rock, reggae, dancehall, blues, all sorts of latin music, flamenco, some trance. the list could go on, but really, after a certain point, the genres will get too specific for me to feel i should bother. i suppose the ones i listen to the most are classic rock, jazz, indie rock, reggae and hip hop. not necessarily in that order. well, maybe in that order. it's hard to pinpoint all of this because music for me is all about how i'm feeling. and we all know that the human is a fickle animal. all in all i feel i have a well rounded appreciation of music. i'm not sure how i got it. perhaps the question would point to a larger picture of who my influences were (and how many) as i grew up.
