Living in the sticks I've always had to be crazy versatile to play in any bands that play live. My home town is only about 12,000 people and it's an insane mix of University kids, rednecks, blue collar rockers, and Portlandia style hipsters.
I've been playing in a straight up hair metal cover band on and off for years that's starting back up again. Lately I've been playing with a "standards" style classic rock band and on Thursday I was invited to play with a hard rock / metal group that I guess would be best described as "bro" metal.
Each band has material that I love and some that I don't but it's really the people in each band that keeps me going. I have a great time with all three groups of guys and there's very little bullshit or drama.
I think the strangest thing is the sounds coming from my practice room each night. My wife gets a bit of stylistic whip-lash. Last night I was working on a Killswitch Engage song, followed by Bon Jovi, followed by a tune by CCR. Each in a different tuning on a different guitar with a completely different amp rig on the Axe Fx II.
Anybody else stretch this far out or I am just the crazy one?
Not at all man. I play as many different genres as I feel like as often as I can. Playing one style gets monumentally boring, and learning about different styles makes you a better guitarist anyway if you apply why you learn to your own playing. More power to you, brotha!
