Just curious to see what other styles of music you guys dig...not counting any metal or rock.

Can you give us some artist examples? That would probably lead to more discussion.

I can't think of anything on my iPod that is not at least loosely "Rock" in some way...

Little bit o' blues (SRV, John Mayall, Kenny Wayne Sheppard, etc.)
A handfull of jazz artists (Miles, Coltrane, Monk)
Some early Sinatra (jazz? big band swing?)
Some swing (retro & old-timey, Louis Prima, BBVD, Brian Setzer)
Johnny Cash (not really a country fan, but John's the Man)

There might be an odd disc or 2 of other genres, but for the most part, my 1700+ disc collection is primarily rock, hard rock and metal based.

big band swing was really just a sub-genre of "Jazz", so either works.

MG, I think what you're missing are some jazz guitarists, to bridge that gap between your blues collection and your jazz discs.

Wes Mongomery, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell (my favorite), Barney Kessel, Joe Pass, etc.

Thanks for sharing guys!

I love the 50s. I'm sure you dig Otis Rush, Buddy Guy, Freddie King, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown and John Lee Hooker too right SD?

I like a lot of Latin music, especially from Cuba and the surrounding areas. Mongo Santamaria is bad ass. Latin Jazz is another. I like a couple of 80s Country dudes as well b/c they remind me of my ol' man...

Quote :
Kenny Burrell (my favorite),

I have Midnight Blue, based on your recommendation. I'll probably invest in more of his stuff at some point because it's just so damn good.

I'm trying not to go too crazy delving into the jazz genre because I just don't have the time or money to get too involved.

I have a lot of stuff that's not "Hard" Rock...but still would, IMO, fall somewhere loosely under "Rock" (like the thread title suggests).

But, if forced to list some bands:

Duran Duran
Sarah McLachlan
Iron & Wine
Jack Savoretti
She & Him
Willie Nelson (I have his 50's demo collection...amazing)

It's a good thing that I've been following his blog for a while and downloaded it when it was available.

I am in search of a Gilberto Gil album that features a cover version of "Can't Find My Way Home" on it.

I used to have it but it was lost awhile back,
