Ok thanks to your advice (and especially JeronKoles') we have now got sub-genres in the metal section of the VIDEO LESSONS page.

The next section we would like to tackle is "Rock & Pop" - which is even more messier then the metal section was...

How do you think we should split it up? What makes most sense? Which sub-genres?

Thanks for helping! smile.gif

I'll try to add a few sub-genre's

  • British Invasion
  • EMO
  • Glam Rock
  • New Wave
  • Pop Punk
  • Power Pop
  • Surf Rock
  • Synth Pop
Here's a good example of how it evolved

I don't know..
I think your list is a bit overkill, Skennington. smile.gif

The problem is that genres overlap..

Blues rock
Hard rock (metal and rock)
Punk rock
Progressive rock
Rockabilly
Pop rock
Folk rock
Grunge
...

It was easier with metal, because that's a sub-genre of rock. wink.gif

I think this is realy hard to split into sections. There are many rock sub-genres but in the end it's all rock. I think it will be more confusing to search using tens of sub genres than just simple category Rock (all kinds).

However I can name you some sub-genres

Industrial rock
Indie Rock
Heavy rock
Melodic rock
Hard rock
Classic rock
Progressive rock
Psychedelic rock
Punk rock
Pop rock
Acid rock
Country rock
Electronic rock
Experimental rock
Neoclassical rock
Symphonic rock

etc...

Yeah, I agree with Emir that lots of categories makes it confusing.
I would go as simple as possible, keeping only the "umbrella" categories (since most of what has been cited are actually sub genres of these)

Hard rock
Pop rock
Ballad
Others

Gus' suggestion seems to be the tidiest, in my opinion smile.gif Maybe just add "Punk" in there?

By the way, will this mean there might be sub-genres in the "Blues and Country" section as well? Cus' those two genres are as far apart as moon and sun, in my humble opinion tongue.gif

In this case every style has many subsections. Jazz can be fussion jazz, be-bop/swing, gypsy jazz, acid jazz... If this is the point of this topic then let's give subsection names for each style.

thanks Ian, I think that as we haven't got too much punk and grunge we can pu them together, for example...
I think Gus list is also good one.

My vote is for simplicity of the matter, so members could find anything they like, and also that categories actually be filled. Juan gave a good suggestion, but Gus also made it very simple.

I could recommend a category, it's time related:

'50 rock
'60 rock
'70 rock
'80 rock
'90 rock
rock after 2000

So far I see Gus list + Punk as the best option, but then again that might be because I'm not really "genre" savvy... so I prefer it simple.

Gus' list is simple, and boils down to three: rock, pop, punk.

This is difficult ! laugh.gif

As guitarists, what sections do we like to have?

Classic.
Progressive.
Alternative.
Blues.
Grunge.

Bleh. tongue.gif

And what about fusion punk ? huh.gif

The only thing we need is to sort the lessons a bit, so that people can find the lessons they like.

I think it's a great idea to get it more ordered. I think that some lists are prety long, that won't work, they'll just overlap. maybe this is good:
Classic rock (60 70 80 rock)
Hard Rock
Ballads
Pop Rock
Bluesy rock
The rest

EDIT: I saw this has already been done on the metal and "in the style of" lessons. In the style of has a list, but not with all the artists. How can we get the full list?

EDIT2: where did the band class page on the main page went to?? It should be there! Same for the Blog button, I lost it tongue.gif
