I have noticed that the basic music genres seem to have evolved into a infinite number of new sub-genre.
Why do I find this annoying? Well, mainly because I don't use playlists. So, I select my entire music collection and play tracks randomly, which is good in some ways because I listen to a wide range of music at each sitting.
But sometimes I'm in the mood for, say, rock. However, there are so many types of rock that filtering by genre proves to be a bit tricky e.g.
So, I'd like to reclassify my entire collection to a maximum of 10 ancestor genres. My guess at these are....
Rap & Hip Hop
Do you think I've got this right? I'd be grateful for any comments/ideas before I take the plunge and modify the tags on my entire collection.
