I have a wide variety of musical tastes that run the gamut from Pop, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Country… anything except Rap. I really can’t stand a “music” genre where you don’t actually play your own instruments but sample someone else’s work instead.
In recent years, I’ve gravitated toward more J-pop and Trance music, but nothing beats a good old-fashioned rock number.
