|2. Dual bass pedals that hit the bass drum for deathly fast beats. Drummer uses both feet.|
3. When you strum one or two strings at a time on the guitar and position your lower palm down near the base of the strings, gives it a muffed sound.
7. Thrash is just "wreck everything around you" speed metal, punk influenced. Death Metal has a distinctly evil sound, not necessarily fast.
10. Check out Dream Theater. If youre "into" what youre asking about on this list, get Akeldama by The Faceless.
For the other definitions you can probably could find exactly what youre looking for on www.urbandictionary.com
|1-very rapid 8th/16th note drum pattern played at high beats per minute|
2-rapid bass drum beats played on 2 bass pedals
3-muting a note on the string to diminish its natural length/volume by resting your palm on the string while playing the note
4-multiple time signatures being used at once
5-depends on the use of the term, but the 'tonality' of a piece is what key the piece is in
6-what's a comping?
7-just listen to them, it's not hard to tell the difference
10-uhh Immolation-Put My Hand in the Fire has one phrase that's in 13/8 that gets repeated a few times
|Oh for comping, I wanted examples of some really good comping, in jazz (is there other comping?). For tonality, I meant like saxophone, when something has an "overtone" or "undertone." |
and I'm guessing modal jazz is jazz played in certain modes
|one of my fave metallica songs Blackened has a little used time signature on the primary riff and is quite cool - 7/4 timing - although otherwise the song is pretty much just 4/4 which is totally standard. |
|for an example of double bass you can go to my profile and watch my newest blog. it's me drumming and i do some double bass toward the end.|
|for 10- check out Opeth's "Master's Apprentice"|
|Thanks a lot everyone. I really want to take a jazz theory class, but with a double major I'm not sure if I'll have the time. Sputnik will have to do...haha.|
|10-Meshuggah-any song on any album|
|Double Bass could also be an upright bass in the orchestra, but you're probably talking about the drum pedals.|
Palm muting is, like previously stated, when you muffle the sound on a guitar by resting your palm lightly against the strings by the bridge.
Polyrhythm is just the overlapping of at least two independent rhythm lines.
I don't know what context you mean by tonality but it's essentially the foundation upon which music (scales, keys and the like) is built upon. I guess.
Modal jazz is, like previously stated, essentially jazz with modes.
I don't know what you mean by multiphonic but I would assume it's something to do with instruments capable of creating more than one pitch at a time.
And "weird" time signatures are subjective. It's not so much time signatures that offer variation in expected rhythms but things like syncopation or polyrhythms or progressions in the signatures themselves that are usually more interesting.
I dunno, hope that helps.
|^^how's this list a fail...it's the most interesting one ive read in awhile.....tired of FUCKING SHUFFLE LISTS!!!!|
|"Polyrhythm is just the overlapping of at least two independent rhythm lines."|
I'm pretty sure that's a counterpoint, not a polyrhythm. Could be wrong.
|Nevermind, you're right. I just remembered a polyrhythm example I was shown that happened to be with multiple time signatures.|
|6. Duke Ellington, Oscar Peterson, and Count Basie are always good pianists to check out. If you want some good guitar comping, Freddie Green would be a good place to start.|
