Important: for the purposes of counting how many notes in a chord, we do not count different octaves of a note as different notes. Beyond Triads: Adding a Fourth Note Triads are very common in many forms of classical music, folk, rock and pop but in jazz they are not often used, instead at least one other note is added, usually the 7th note of the scale (but sometimes the 6th), see below in example 1b. Why 6ths? A 6th is an alternative to the major 7th on chords I and IV. The 6th is the melody noteThe root is the melody note Diminished 7 chord N.B.

It was designed by Dave Smith, who now owns his own company and has re-created the Prophet in the 08 incarnation. Moog Slim Phatty

Gypsy Jazz Guitar - Introduction To Arpeggios And Picking One of the things that attracts me to the Gypsy swing style is that it has a systematic technical method. Before I started to play Django style, none of my teachers talked to me about technique or how to improve my sound. I noticed that every guitarist has a different way of playing and I remember myself changing the way I played every few months. Things are different when you learn to play the Gypsy jazz style. Django Reinhardt and all the other gypsy jazz guitarists use the same method of picking, a method called rest stroke picking (other jazz guitarists like Joe Pass use this method as well). In this lesson you will learn: The “rest stroke” picking technique.Minor 9 and diminished arpeggios.How to use these arpeggios over the Minor Swing chord progression. I strongly recommend that you practice the arpeggios slowly in order to master the rest stroke picking technique. Video Rest Stroke Picking Rest stroke picking consists of two important movements: Minor and Diminished Arpeggio Shapes

After mastering, your song should be ready to go public. Keep in mind that mastering goes hand-in-hand with mixing. Right kind of listening environment and good set of monitors are also essential in mastering so that you can properly hear what needs to be improved. Lot of producers and professionals say that mastering should be left to mastering engineers and that you shouldn’t master your songs by yourself if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Статья "Модульные синтезаторы" | Музыкальное Оборудование Дата первой публикации: фев 2009 50 лет в строю. Что такое модульный аналоговый синтезатор? Бросив взгляд назад, можно обнаружить множество ранних электромузыкальных инструментов, оставивших глубокий след в истории. Да, это предки, но все же к ним в большей степени подходит определение "инструмент", а никак не "синтезатор", в силу тембрового однообразия создаваемых ими звуков, что, в общем, вполне соответствовало решаемой ими задаче. Истории известны находки иного рода. Настоящий прорыв в синтезаторостроении произошел только после изобретения транзисторов, которое и стало тем историческим рубежом, после которого начали появляться синтезаторы с уже привычной для нас архитектурой. Часть первая, историческая Харальд Бодэ (Harald Bode) родился в 1909 г. в Гамбурге (Германия). После окончания войны Х.
