The answer truly is any! …and yes!! Any genre and any style of that genre or sub-genre can be successfully interpreted on the guitar. This fact is what makes the guitar the best musical instrument in the world… well at least to all us guitar players that is. Below are just a few video clip examples taken from a short lecture at an art college in 2013 discussing musical genre and style from a guitarist's point of view.
If you think about it long enough you will find an example of just about every type of music being represented on the guitar. Stop for a moment and try listing them until you run out.
It’s a daunting task really. Off the top of one’s head thinking in roughly chronological order (just to give us a chance) we have:
Early music, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical Period, Romantic era, Contemporary Period moving on to sounds captured on audio recording technology such as folk (a broad overlapping term including music from all over the world some of which are to follow here) Blues, Spiritual/Gospel, Soul, Flamenco, American Country, Western Swing, “Trad” Jazz, Gypsy Jazz, Modern Jazz, Big Band, Reggae, Raggamuffin, Rock and Roll, Rock, Heavy Metal/Metal, Fusion, Salsa, Merengue, Tango, Bossa Nova, Bachata, lets not forget Pop Music as we’ve known it in any guise in any age.
For those who say “ ah... acoustic guitar tabs for House, Techno, EDM, Dub Step” or any electronic based form you can mention? Well the answer is that I have heard/seen great musicians reproduce the emotive feel of such styles with the guitar. It may require some technology to do live like loop stations and special effects but it has been and is being done. Also we have to bear in mind that electronic music is a highly “triggered and controlled” form. Some of what you may think is programmed, however artistically and cleverly has been created using not just a keyboard instrument as the standard controller or other accepted control surfaces such as drum pads or on screen GUI, but actually the humble guitar interfacing with the modern world of technology! In time I hope to have several acoustic guitar TABS for just about anything you can think of.
