Lonesome Fiddler - your definition sounds like the Music of Bill Monroe to me! (or maybe Duke Ellington)

Earworm -- Listeners of all persuasions can be surly, closed-minded & defensive of their preferred genre. If you knew how much static I'd get from my hippie rocker college roommates when we did you-get-the-next-choice record-playing sessions. There'd be an hour or so of Grateful Dead/Joe Cocker/It's a Beautiful Day with me poking my head into the love fest with a movement from a Beethoven Piano Sonata. The groans were palpable. The groans got still worse from my roommates when, in my final quarter, I discovered punk rock.

It doesn't help matters that, in contrast to a painting or sculpture, it takes time for a musical selection to unfold. It can take several hours to suffer through a Wagner opera or Grateful Dead jam. It only takes a second to glance at a Jackson Pollock.

Doug -- yeah, genre-typing can drive a fella/gal crazy.

"There's only two kinds of Music." I am in league with whoever said this. To take it a stride farther. I don't think any particular type/style should be put on a pedistal. Same goes for a particular instrument.

Why not get out your old piano books and play stuff from there. Or if you don't have them anymore I'm sure you can find them or similar used on Amazon or wherever.
