Re: Your preferred music genres?
I like listening to and playing rock, classic rock, old school prog, indie, metal, some hip hop, and jazz. As far as metal goes, I tend to gravitate more to the super technical stuff that makes most peoples' ears bleed and brains turn to mush (Blotted Science anyone?).
I'm a sucker for music that grooves real hard in odd and varying time signatures, like King Crimson and the Mars Volta.
