Here's a tree I've been working on by doing a little research online. I'm trying to keep things 3 branches or less. (I can see how this whole genre thing could get very unwieldy!) Any suggestions or comments would be GREATLY appreciated as some genres I am completely unfamiliar with. Also if you can see something I've obviously left out, please let me know. Thanks!
