Default Which genre is harder to play

Which genera is harder to play? Weather you be a drummer of guitarist what do you find the most difficult?

Me personally i find jazz to be the hardest, especially if your a guitarist..or basset..drummer for that matter. The reason why is because you are going to have to be able to improvise...

all depends on the person.

i started doing nothing but straight improv about 10 years ago. improvising is ALL i do now (guitar, bass, and very rarely drums) but i don't think anyone would really call my music 'jazz'. improvisation is also a big part of any style, especially stuff like bluegrass. classical and pop are probably the only ones that wouldn't have many elements of improvisation - it's oddly sad to consider this.

as far as the basics go, they're all about the same. if you can sing and dance to it then you should be able to play it with a little practice.

I'm sorry to be the douche in the thread but this is just bugging me. The word is "genre". "Genera" means something else.

See I just thought it was Spanish for "genre" which explains my answer.

You could've split up "Rock" in Prog, Punk etc.
