I'd like to know how many people out there listen to live music, and if you think this affects how you judge recorded music?

I apologize for the short list of genres, but the poll only has 10 choices. And "world" is kind of a catch all for African, Rai, Fado, Flamenco, Gamelon, etc,

I listen to live music 1-3 times a week, mostly Rock though some R&B, Jazz and Folk. I'm not a musician or a singer, but I do frequently record live music.

How about you?

Moderation: Moved to "Polls".

The bigger problem with your genre list is that it's mutually exclusive - you used radio buttons instead of checkboxes. You need to let people make multiple selections.

I listen to live music at least once a week and there is NO genre that dominates! I listen to classical, folk, jazz, blues, bluegrass, etc, etc., with the emphasis on the etc!

And on top of that "genre's" are stupid anyway!

Last Friday I attended a Bela Fleck concert in Lowell, Massachusetts. What genre is Bela Fleck? Classical? "Best Classical Crossover Album" Grammy for his 2001 Sony Classical album Perpetual Motion with works by Scarlatti, Bach, Debussy, Chopin. Also, Best Instrumental Arrangement - Claude Debussy's "Doctor Gradus Ad Parnassum" in 2001. Or maybe you think he's pop, because he won a Grammy for best Pop instrumental for Sinister Minister. Would you prefer Country? - He won a Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance (with Asleep at the Wheel) in 1995. He also won Grammy's in best Contemporary Jazz Album in 2001 and again this year!

Music is music and genre's don't mean squat. I'm in the process of writing a review of Rhapsody for my music blog, and while I really like their service in general the fact that you have to guess what genre they've put a particular artist in, to narrow your search down from a huge universe, is a pain.
