Hey guys, many of us at the beginning of our journey, and even later on for many as well, struggle for creating or adopting a style of choice, whether its for the band or as a solo guitarist. Im gonna list many styles/genres but mostly for metal, so we can disscuss its characteristics, likes/dislikes, etc. This will help us know more about styles and their characteristics.

some are very popular and recognizable, but i will list them anyways:

Thrash Metal
Death Metal
Black Metal
Progressive Metal
Drone Metal
Power Metal
Symphonic Metal
Speed Metal
Glam/Hair Metal
Melodic Death Metal
Rock N' Roll
Folk Metal
Love Metal
Neoclassical Metal

you can add more if you like, it is interesting to learn more about other genres and what are they about!

So heres the thing, pick a genre and explain it your own words, someone else may add important stuff as well, or you may ask about another genre, its all about learning! biggrin.gif

If this becomes a succesful thread, it might be a great addition to the Wiki!

Progressive metal: Lets see, usually involves complex compositional features such as odd rhythms, odd timsignatures, etc. Songs are usually long and vary a lot from heavy riffs to acoustic interludes. Is similar to neo-classical and makes use of the same scales, modes, chords, etc.
