Music And The Music Of Music

- At an early age my father would always play music in his car of CD’s and his iPod. He’d play anything from Kraftwerk to The Cars we would almost never listen to the radio. At the time the music meant nothing to me I didn 't feel it or understand it it kind of was just another ambiance. However one day when he was taking me to school and the song “Cowboys from hell” by Pantera came on and at that moment my musical interest sparked.

People Who Do Not Like Country Music

- “My life’s been a country song; it’s been the words when I couldn’t find ‘em. A friend when I’ve been alone. It’s been the toast to remember, the strength for moving on...” — Chris Cagle.

Music Has Changed My Life

- Music has always been a big part of my life. Music is not just a bunch of melodies, rhythms, and vibrant sounds. It is a comfort to me. The lyrics of a song challenge my intellect and the rhythms and beats affect my emotions. Music understands me when people don’t. At times it takes me back to an event in my life or even in history. Both consciously and subconsciously my mind remembers the emotions that are attached to a certain song. It can make me feel on top of the world or the complete opposite; music can change the atmosphere and also set the mood....   [tags: Reggae, Bob Marley, Bass guitar]

Bob Dylan 's All Along The Watchtower

- Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower” has a song structure that is composed of an introduction, verse one, instrumental interlude, verse two, instrumental interlude, verse three, instrumental interlude, and outro.1 Jimi Hendrix clearly follows this structure when he covers the song.2 Dylan’s heavy reliance on the reedy sharp sounds of the harmonica combined with the soft mystical strumming of the acoustic guitar can be interpreted as a journey of desolation through oppression. Although Hendrix does not modify the syntagmatic structure of the song, he does alter the paradigmatic elements in order to convert it from a folk rock song to a psychedelic song....   [tags: Heavy metal music, Rock music, Bass guitar]

Exploring Trendy Underground Music Genres
