    Wow, this is very interesting journal.
    I couldn’t judge some songs.
    To be honest, I don’t mind song’s genres.
    When I listen to music, I always feel that “like”, “doesn’t like” or “nothing special”.
    They are only three.
    I learnt that songs can be divided into 14 genres! Thanks!! 🙂

      Hi Emico, Glad you found it interesting. There are even more than these 14 genres they’ve picked out, so certainly something to consider when listening – and playing. Sometimes it’s fun to take a well-known tune and play it in a completely different style! Jeanette

        Hi Jeanette,
        Yes, they are basically 14 genres, not just them.
        I remember that I was very surprised and pleasant when I listened to “Play Bach” for the first time.
        Thank you! 🙂
