Country/Classic Rock user friendly software

Out of all the software mentioned in the most user friendly post, which would be most suited for country/classic rock, and contain the most options for natural sounding drums, patterns , instruments e.t.c.

what kind of software are you looking for? There is no special DAW for any genre and if you need sounds then looking at loops and sample libraries are your best bet.

A DAW is (more or less) not bound to any style. For drum plug-ins I would suggest looking at EZ Drummer. They have expansion packs for both classic rock and country.

Ableton Live, and Tracktion were mentioned in a previous topic that were very user friendly. Would either of these require an additional purchase of software to acheive the ability to produce country/classic rock styles?
The reason I ask, is that when I visit tutorial websites, the demos always seem to involve hip hop and/or electronica types of examples. I'd like to get one that will serve a wide variety of needs without additional purchases. Am I dreaming, or is this possible within a user friendly format.
I'm new at this and will be asking questions that may not make sense. Feel free to set me straight. I'm trying to figure out which software will serve my needs without making me jump through economic and learning curve hoops.

Do you have a computer already? Mac or PC?

It sounds like you want to keep stuff very simple, which is totally understandable. If you are running Mac, and are going to MOSTLY be doing AUDIO recording, then why go much farther than running Garageband with a nice audio interface?

Oh, and I second checking out Toontracks EZ Drummer w/ the Nashville expansion pack. I do believe that would get you in the country sound pretty easily!

i have a new dell 2gb with vista. Yes i want to keep it as simple as possible until I get some experience and confidence. It would be nice to "nail it" in one package for now, and that's where I need the advice.

Can you recommend me a good hammer for making gazebos?

Most of the hammers I see for sale look like they'd be better suited for building decks, or possibly, garden beds.
