GUITAR: classic vs metal

What would you rather hear? What would you rather play? Metal or classic? Or what about them being combined! I play both and love them but I can't decide what's better.

Well if you are asking what is "better", both type of music are not the same so you cannot compare those. Both have their own distinctive qualities in terms of musicality, mood, tempo, time signatures, etc. For me, I'd play both! Both will contribute to you being a musician and playing lots of different other genres will expand your musical bounderies. So I say that you play both and experiment with different types of music. :)

I don't know much about metal music but all i know is i'm a music lover but not hard rock songs. I like slow rock ,classical songs and especially love songs. I like all love songs because it's nice to hear them very relaxing and meaningful . Most songs that i like are from the 80's or 70's. I only like a few songs from these days because most of it don't have serious meaning and the way it sings is not so touching and heart-lifting like the songs from older days. If somebody hear songs from the older times, they can relate or connect that to some events in their lives either sad, happy or lonely.

I'd primarily say metal because I am much more into screaming guitars however after saying that a lot of folk and gothic metal bands incorporate classical and melodic pieces into their songs. An example might be elvenking, finntroll, korpiklaani or nightwish. There are loads of bands out there that merge the two.

I listen to a wide range of music. I play guitar as well and listen mostly to metal (particularly fusions like symphonic, folk, and jazz metal). If I was forced to choose, I would definitely have to go with classical guitar as it is much more soothing. "Metal" guitar is mostly shred, which is enjoyable but has relatively no meaning.
