|you could always have no genres, and just styles of songs so songs are not limited by genres,|
uptempo. fun. heavy, soft. light. ambient. catchy. etc. then whatever the genre you just enter what you think best applies to the song.

|If enough individual categories are listed then "All" can be done away with|
Rock, Metal, etc. should all be their own categories
Not rock but not anything else (still might be Other)
Reggae might be broken down into:
and (what I call) White Boy Reggae or Honky Island (I understand that you might not want to call it that but...)
Jazz could be broken down into:
Classic style and Smooth
Classical might broken down into:
Small group-trios, quartets, chamber, etc.

|hierarchical may work. I think I`d rather skip one I don`t like than miss one I didn`t hear because it was not my specified genre|

|You raise a good point Swivelable! If we make the genres too specific then it`s hard to discover new music in other genres. However allowing multiple selections is a bit tricky (from both a programming point of view and a complexity of the site point of view).|
It almost needs to be hierarchical so you can choose the genres as they are now or click to drill down further.
Hmmmmmm. I need to have a good think about this!

|Here’s how I divide my soundcloud playlists|
Harder Rock (Incl Indie)
Melodic Rock (Mainly cause the Rock plylist by itself was too long. Incl alternative)
City (Beats - electronic and HipHop)
Orchestral (Usually instrumental incl ambient, electronic & classical)
World (I place reggae & funk here)

Sone tunes fit in multiple categories
My two albums are acoustic, but not folk or singer/songer. They are really rock, but neither hard or necessarily melodic.
They work in my acoustic playlist because the other ones I include are also mostly aggressive. Generally I have to categorize them as indie rock.
So classifying a posted song can be tricky the more the genres are defined.
Right now I appreciate the “Rock, Metal, Blues, Indie & Punk” category for listening because it gives me a variety. It still means I miss other genres; the more granular it becomes the less interesting it is.
=-> =-> What I would love to see is a check box for categories that I want to hear when using the ‘Next button’ so I can get a nice mix of my favorite styles while ignoring types that don’t move me.

|I would like EDM split a bit into Techno , house , bass (to cover d&b , neurofunk and heavier elements) :)|
|31 July 2017 01:18|
|Just saw this post. I vote for Ambient, Piano/Ambient or something along these lines.|

|EDM is an affront to most european producers. House, Techno and Trance would be better. You could get real nitty gritty with this (Tech House, Minimal Tech, electro House, Psy Trance etc.) but House, Techno and Trance cover the vast majority of genres and sub genres.|

|Well, I think some of the electronica is instrumental, and some has vocal, be it only spoken word, or in some cases , a a vocal melody. Shouldn`t electronica and instrumentals be together?|

|Tristyn kind of hit it on the head too|
|26 July 2017 08:01|
|Singer Songwriter encompasses much of my stuff.|
or Folk Or Folk Alternative
Country might be a good category too.

|I like that EDM (for example) encompasses alot of different styles. After all, this site is all about discovery. Both being discovered and discovering new music.... I like a bit of Anarchy in the system :-)|

|Might it work to have the same set of subdivisions to each main heading, if it was broad enough? `Instrumental`, `Alternative`, `Easy Listening`, `Heavy` and `Ambient`, for example? I know you can suggest better . . . . .|

|Wouldn`t punk go in rock with heavy metal etc |
|25 July 2017 16:07|
|I have to have "Punk" just for my own benefit and I think we need "World" too.|
|25 July 2017 15:41|
|I would just have these |
Blues and jazz
