The genre extensively comprises of soothing drumbeats, soft bass lines and self indulgent yet emotional solos using the electric guitar.Musicians in almost all of the above genres experiment a lot with instruments such as the electric piano (Children of Bodom), saxophone (Pink Floyd), harmonica (Pearl Jam).Rock music however has been a staple of many generations during the 20th century and its sub genres have now become significant enough to stand on their own.
even though sub genres come and go, rock will forever remain a force to reckon with in the music industry.
If you ask most teens what their favorite style of music is, you will probably hear country the least. Most people think that is weird, but I was raised listening to country music. Most country songs tell stories that almost everyone can understand.
Most teens my age are into hard rock, metal, pop, hip-hop, etc.
Although I play in a country band, my musical tastes are very eclectic.
Most people stereotype country songs as talking about drinking, divorce, mammas, and dogs. Country is derived from the root of all modern music, the Blues. They sang of their pain, anger, toils, hardships, and frustrations. After the turn of the century Blues branched out into two categories, Delta Blues and Chicago Blues.
The Delta Blues were the acoustic, soulful blues that the slaves sang just a few decades earlier.Music and its classification are variedly based on the scales and instruments employed in the composition of a piece.With most instruments (such as guitar) being more and more regularly used in almost all genres, it has become ever more difficult to assign a musical piece to a single strict category.In the end however, it’s the regular guitar arranged for some other instrument or with a unique sound along with a bass guitar and drum kit which is the staple set of instruments for all.Preferences in lyrics vary from fantasy (Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath) to political issues (Pearl Jam), death and its variations (Slayer, Metallica) to apathy (Pink Floyd, Nirvana) and there are many crossovers in between as well. My favorite musical styles are country, blues, and classic rock. I like these genres, however I enjoy more mellow styles.Groups such as Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam emerged as the main players and representatives of the youth of that generation.To this day, Pearl Jam is the only group that still survives from the major four of the grunge movement and after much experimentation has returned to its grunge roots.Grunge music initially started as an underground movement in the late 80’s and arly 90’s.Nirvana’s breakthrough single ‘Smells like teen spirit’ however broke all norms and propelled the genre to mainstream.
