Creating User Types

Hi, i'm trying to put together a site to be resource for bands/musicians in my area, listing music shops, venues and other things in the area.

Elgg seems pretty cool so far (have been playing for a few days now) but i wanted to know if there is a way to add user types similar to myspace where they have band accounts, personal accounts and film accounts.   as i would want shop accounts, venue accounts, promoter accounts, etc.

Any tips at all would be great

Btw, i'm not good with php or anything, i'm a musician who thinks this kinda thing would be really helpful, so i'm trying to do it...
