Our vocabulary has so far begun to define terms related to distribution, recording, streaming, and more, but we have yet to address what might be the most useful set for musicians – in terms of actual music. Music theory can sometimes seem confusing and complicated, so we’ve taken some of its important words and tried to keep things as simple as possible. Understanding these terms well will help you share your own ideas with other musicians, or choose what fellow players, producers, and managers are putting together.
Bits and Bars / Measurements: The unit of measurement in a beat music is the rhythmic unit. A measure or bar is a part of a piece of music that contains a certain number of bits, depending on the signature during the piece, which looks like a fraction. The number below indicates a specific type of note; The number above specifies how many notes are in each measurement. For example, at 4/4, there are four quarter-note bits per measure, at 3/4, there are three quarter-note bits per measure, and so on.
Cord: A chord occurs when more than one melody is played. For example, to play a G key word on the piano, you need a G key (original, in this case), a B key (the third note on the G key), and a D key (press) the fifth note on the G key. When these notes sound at once, it makes the G key sound. There are many types of chords, and the example above is not a formula for all of them. But if you play multiple notes on your instrument at the same time, you play one.
Fucking: A choda is a finishing part of a piece of music, and usually different from what came before. It is independent of the structure of the verse, chorus and bridge that make up the rest of the song. You know the last part You don’t answer You don’t answerOf “The chain“When it calms down for a short moment, and then comes the cool lightning line, and then the band is completely loose? That’s a fuck.
Crescendo: A crescent is simply a progressive increase in volume. To get back to the chowder example of “The Chain” – the chowder start of the song, which gradually goes from very quiet to very loud volume, is also a great example of a chrysanthemum. This is a useful word for whipping if you need to clearly describe how you want to create intensity in a part of a song – or even a whole song.
Harmony: An analogy is when multiple melodies from multiple sources come together, in a pleasing way. When you play all the notes on a chord, you are creating a kind of harmony. The shaking of notes on the guitar can create a harmony; The orchestra of instruments playing together creates a harmony; And two or more voices can sing together to create a harmony. Dolly Parton And Kenny Rogers Run a master class in the last example “Islands in the stream. ”
Flat / Sharp: Semitone (or half-step) movement between flat and sharp pitch. Flat means “low pitch by a semitone,” while sharp means “high pitch by a semitone.” For example, a C flat is a C half-step downhill pitch. Often, you will hear a musician comment as sharp or flat. What they mean is that they hit a note outside of the key they were supposed to perform. But many keys are sharp and flat C Major and A minor keys are the only ones.
Key: Key refers to the major or minor scale where a part of the music works, and thus, the notes contained within it. A composer can choose to use “accidental” – flat or sharp notes outside the overall key of the song, which is applied only to the bar where they are marked.
Major / Minor: Perhaps the most important difference between the main and small keys is that the main keys are usually swollen and the small keys usually have a depression for them. You can hear this difference in an example as small as a distinct vowel – a main chord sounds quite different from a small chord. The main keys use the main scale and the small keys use the small size scale, which is determined by their half and full step patterns.
Melody: A melody, in its simplest definition, is a musical legacy that combines pitch and rhythm to create something that brings the audience together – sometimes referred to as a melody. The Beatles They were famous for inventing pop tunes. Rise and fall, bounce, speed, and its pitch Paul McCartneyIn his voice “Eleanor Rigby”All the reasons for the creation of the melody of the voice of the song.
Pitch: Pitch is the frequency of a word – how high or low it is with other words. A high frequency, produced by rapid vibration, creates a high pitch; A low frequency, produced by slow vibrations, creates a low pitch. There are 12 musical instruments on the color scale.
Scale: As mentioned in the description of our main and small keys, the scale is a pattern of half and full steps that create a sequence of notes from 12 pitches. A scale can include any number and combination of these pitches.
Alone: A segment of solo music that is played by a solo composer himself or a small number of accompaniment musicians. Eddie HazelIts amazing guitar performance FuncadelicOf “Porcupine brain, “For example, single.
Weather: The motion of a piece of music is known as its tempo. Tempo can be measured in bits or bpm per minute; Classical music is described by various terms ranging from tempos Too wide From (very slow) andante From (a medium speed) Soon (Very fast).
Timber: Although the pitch can indicate the exact frequency of the sound, many instruments can produce the same pitch. To further describe a word, the quality of its wood is invoked; Timber is also sometimes known as the tone color of words. The sound of a brass wood is much different than that of a reedy one. If you play a C note on a bright piano, it will sound different from a C playing a more dull piano, or an organ, or a bass guitar. And one final note: it’s pronounced Copper-out.
