    Default What Is More "Complicated?" Classical Music or Jazz?

    This is just a question I have had for a while and was wondering if anyone here may have the answer. What is a more complicated form of music? Classical music or Jazz? I am a classical music listener, and my best friend is a Jazz listener, and we had a debate about which is more complicated, and neither of us know too much about the forms.

    I find that they are both complicated in different ways. Classical is more complex in terms of the composition aspect, while jazz is more complicated with the performing.

    Both genres are actually extremely simple.

    well define complex?

    Both genres have their moments of structural, rythmic, harmonical etc. complexity, and moments of simplicity.

    When I say complex I mean by a more "different" and "hard to understand" structure. Idk if that makes any sense, lol

    Oh well stick around and interact in these forums long enough and you 'll come to understand.

    But I personally see both Jazz and Classical equally sharing in complexity.

    Hey, JoeGreen, I think you're a pretty fair person -- pretty balanced as I perceive. I appreciate that very much, my friend!
