    Metal in my band, but I have a tendancy to just play whatever. If I had a "me" band, it'd end up some sort of amalgamation of everything on the list...

    Until recently, I played a lot of metal and hard rock stuff. I started writing my own stuff, which I often describe as having a bluesy or a punk/surf feel to it (if that makes any sense).

    I must be getting old, cuz I sure can't 'bang like I used to! :(

    One of these days I will record some tunes with my band, put them up for you all to hear and ask you what the heck you would call it. Because I have no idea what it is... but it's fun to play!

    Lets see:

    in school i play jazz
    Phat phunktion is funk, hip-hop, r&b, pop(?)
    bon pantalon is jazz, rock, hip-hop
    ryan meisel quartet is jazz, funk, hip-hop
    tim whalen electric group is fusion

    and i'm a jazz whore too.

    i used to play in the UW symphony too, but that sucked so i quit :D (although my chops are suffering BIG TIME because of it)

  9. My stuff is anything from Easy Listening to Metal. Gee, it's nice to be a solo artist :D

    I play to earn some money (have to make a living), and I pay my studies with it.

    Where I live you can't do much shows and earn at the sime time some money with it if you don't play weddings, (big)partys,

    So we play the music the audiency wants: top 40 and pop.
    (it's like playing the music your parents like)
    To be honest: this is playing for fun and money, not for the music, but hell..I have a good time.
  11. I play a lot of gospel, jazz, fusion, and bebop.

    Well, I play in a country band, but I'm really a rocker at heart. Played in rock bands for 20 years before the country thing. Country is great, though. I have a lot more respect for it now than I did when I just played rock. As a general rule (please don't flame me with all the exceptions), todays country is more challenging to play than todays rock, which really says a lot about todays rock....
  13. I play rock, alternative and I like to do an improvised 12 bar blues for practise. Usually sounds horrible. :D

    Looking at the poll resuts, there is an amazing variety with a few people in every category - except Country!! :D

    Maybe this should be kept in mind by the people who seem to think we should all like one thing - that is SlipKnit or Korn etc. - and that we should all hate certain music ...so far you would only be safe in the assumption we don't like Country! ;)

    So far we can anly be safe in the assumption that we don't PLAY Country! :p

    See, I don't play trance, or jazz, or pop, or classical pieces, but I do listen to it!

    Actually, I reckon there are a fair number who play Country, but it is just so "un-liked" by bass players that they won't admit it on a board like this! :D
  17. Isn't that the format where we can take all but one string off our basses and still be able to play any song published?

    It is obvious that you have never actually played country. It is stereotyped as root/fifth only on bass, but these days that is only a small portion of country. There are a lot of challenging bass lines in country these days. I know that you were joking, but some people might take you seriously...

    Sorry - there were 0 ticks for Country, when I posted and one has only just appeared! I guess you went back and ticked it! ;)
