    Default Does the music you listen to reflect the music you make??

    k, so lately I've been rocking out to such metal bands As I Killed the Prom Queen, The Red Shore, all that remains, it dies today, bullet for my valentine, bleeding through and so on and so forth, the funny thing is that i don't really dig playing this genre of music. I have a woody for metal, but I'd rather play a ballad on my acoustic b4 ripping a face melting riff on my battle axe, even more of a stranger thing is that I openly criticize acoustic oriented music, yet thats more or less the only music i enjoy to play,....sooo..does the music you dig reflect in the music you create?

    I listen to everything from Eagles to Slayer.

    Listening to Eagles gave me the skills to develop dynamics and listening to metal gave me power, stamina and speed control.

    i know this is an old thread but the topic is really good.

    i listen to all sorts of music but i don't necessarily sound like the music i listen to because i'm intentionally trying to sound like something that has already been done.

    however, i think all the music i listen to definitely influences me lyrically and musically on a subconscious level perhaps?

    When I play my music, I try to have my own sound and style but play similar to my rock/metal influences - this is because I adore what they play, it's in tirbute to them.
