I believe that the guitar is the most versatile musical instrument, it can cover a lot of music styles/genres. I was wondering what kinds of music you guys play on your guitars? I have an acoustic guitar so I usually play mellow, classical fingerstyle songs, but I also play pop, blues, rock songs and I have fairly good fretting-hand strength/speed when it comes to solos.

Hi musicman6! I see that you have a wide range of genres. I also want to learn to play jazz better (I play a tiny bit of jazz). This is also the first time I've heard of "Tejero". What kind of music is it?

Tejano is actually Tex-mex music, a mixture of spanish music performed by latin Texas artists !

Hi zamakh! Keep playing and practicing and you'll get better! If you want free guitar lessons with videos then I suggest you visit justinguitar.com I learned quite a lot from this site and I recommend the site to every guitar enthusiast even if you're a beginner/intermediate/advanced player. Thanks for responding here too!

I try to play my own music that I have made up but it's hard to always come up with good riffs and what not. I like to play mainly experimental and metal type music but I'm open to basically every style so that way I can play better and have more technique. I'm more of a bass player though but guitar playing is really fun still for me.

Hi jambi462! It's good to know that you are making your own music. I know it's hard to make your own music. When I try to make my own stuff, I never get satisfied with my work! It's really hard especially if you don't have inspiration. I'm recently trying out other styles too like jazz (i like the bass lines). I also love playing the bass, but the guitar is my main instrument.

mostly classic rock (especially Led Zeppelin!) songs from the 70,s...and I choose the songs based on the guitar I pick up...I try to take turns with all my guitars (don't want one to get jealous!) last night I played "Tangerine", Cats In The Cradle", "Love Me Two Times" and "Friends" on my Dean V-Coustic.
