Music Taste Evolution

There are so many Genre and Subgenre of music. But do we really stick to the same type of music?

I’m one of those 90’s kids who grew up listening to rock, alternative, metal and other headbanging genre. That is Korn, Slipknot, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach, Screamo bands and the likes. It was in my Highschool days that I started to play musical instruments with their influences, and I’m grateful to them.

It was in my college days I began to listen and discover some of the older music (I’m so fed-up of what we call now mainstream music), though, I’m familiar with other songs because my father used to play it in cassette back in the day. It was a little similar to my favorite genre, but Slow-Rock. Thanks to the internet I can browse more music without buying it first (smirks). The bands; Scorpions, Toto, Chicago, Eagles, America, Air Supply and other famous bands and known R&B classics in that era made me matured in playing instruments. I even started to enjoy listening Jazz and Blues. The technicalities are so different from the music what I grew up.

And at the present, though I’m still listening to my favorite genre, I don’t know what happen to me, but now I like listening to new music (of course with some exceptions). I guess I’ve matured in musicianship, expanding music vocabulary and to play effectively in any genre.

How about you? Do you stick to your favorite genre of music? Or you also like to discover and explore new/older music?

I grew up in the Beatles era. I never liked classical music then but these days I am beginning to appreciate it more. I always liked folk tunes, especially Welsh ones (I grew up there) and Scottish and Irish.

Try classical and opera. They MAY give you a new perspective. For instance, Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun

and the blind Andrea Bocelli's Nessun Dorma

Yeah, also the Beatles, they were classic. I always hear them on radio on my childhood.
