Musical instruments open up the creativity while producing a beautiful melody. The guitar is an insturment that speaks another language because it communicates to people without saying a single word through rythme. For instance, a lot of cultures use guitars to show happiness in their story telling. The guitar made history for Blues and Rock in Roll because without the guitar a lot of music scenes would not exist. Culturally the guitar is seen as a positive symoble it allows people to express their feelings with one another in a unique way.
The album also went on to be number twenty-one on the list of best selling studio albums of all time. The first track is “Let It Rock”. This song was written by Richie Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi. This song is up tempo and, like most songs on this record, has interesting sound that comes from the use of the keyboard. The song starts out with a keyboard solo, and then the other instruments join in harmony establishing the beat and tempo.
Pop Star Image and Influence of Video The pop star image has been growing ever since the start of Michael Jackson’s career in the 70s. Michael has made a tremendous impact on the careers of many of the big named pop stars of today. Pop stars throughout the years have also had a huge effect on the media and how the media portrays them to the general public. Currently pop music has approximately 60% of the top fifty songs, according to billboard magazine. This is a trend that has been increasing since Jackson started.
Amazing how so many genres can be mixed into one piece of music. This is done by layering tracks when making music. Though this is by no means a formula for righting prog music an example without getting to much into music theory would be having light, airy, jazzy, exotic clean chords, and chord structures. These are normally panned into the background making it sound distant with added echo and reverb. Next there would be a very djenty, rhythmic guitar and bass patterns riff/ pattern going on usually panned to your left and right soundscape.
There are many that feel that the fact that the lead was a bisexual changed the quality of their music. I don?t believe that. Queen was Queen, no matter what, they were good. There is a reason that they had nineteen albums, eight gold and six platinum, they played quality music. I am glad there music is still appreciated around the world today.
The key signature is D major containing F Sharp and C Sharp this is important because F comes between beats 2 and 3 during the chorus, this is recognized as offbeat syncopation. It was impressing to find the use of a coda. The coda is commonly found in classical music but can be seen on other genres of music. The connection that is seen through the elements of music was a remarkable observation for me. Bob Marley pioneered the development of reggae, a highly syncopated musical style that take influences from horn parts of American rhythm and Blues as well as funky electric bass guitars that embodies a Caribbean beat at the same time.
Also newspaper articles (Polly). A lot of Kurt's solos during the “Bleach” album era was described by Butch Vig as “Kurt, Strangling his guitar”. On his more popular songs on “In Utero” and “Nevermind” albums they are more pop influenced and not as heavy and some even following the melody. Nirvana's songs differ in dynamics. Going from quiet, slightly distorted or clean to loud and heavy distortion.
The Beatles were known to be one of the most influential bands of all time. In the years 1960 to 1970 they ventured into discovering a wide range of sounds and styles. What was unique about such a group was that they exceeded the boundaries of a normal boy band. Their impact on popular culture has created an open path for many when pursuing in the music industry. In this period releasing music that did not fit your image could be perceived either way.
The name ‘rock and roll’ was identified by Alan Freed, a radio disc jockey that introduced rhythm and blues to the mainstream public, and altered it for the rock and roll. “What Freed certainly knew but few whites were unaware of at the time was that the term (rock and roll) was widely used in black music as a euphemism for sex” (R&RG, 20). Concepts of rhythm and clues such as “complex rhythms and call-out response” and “blending work of both joys and sorrows in the South” were taken black American heritage (R&RG, 23). These styles of music were set to anglo-style songs and thus produced a new style of music. This new style of music set the stage for some of the most influential musicians of youth in this time.
The group then picks up the pace with "Streams Of Consciousness" which features a much more up beat feel, making me want to tap my foot. Redman again takes the solo with an extremely fast pace, using the full range of the tenor sax. The thing I enjoyed most about this tune was the electric guitar solo toward the end. The laid back sound gives a big contrast to the up beat feel of the song. The remainder of the CD seems to have the feel of one of the first three songs, adding a little variety with some blues sound, a little call and response, and some stop time rhythm.
