    How Many Music Genres Are There?

    How many different styles of music exist? Here's the list of Every Musical Genre Ever.

    The answer, as of today, is 541 and growing

    They left out Larryesque from the list!

    Pretty soon there will be a Band In A Box template for all 541.

    Then we can expect many more Garritan libraries to accommodate all of these!

    Garritan General MIDI Collection should handle a good bit of them at least.

    *goes back to writing articles on Wikipedia about the Garritan Libraries*

    Gary, is it okay if I quote content from garritan.com and this forum in the articles? You just managed to explain a few things better than me.
