Tala (music) A tala is a regular, repeating rhythmic phrase, particularly as rendered on a percussive instrument with an ebb and flow of various intonations represented as a theka, a sequence of drum-syllables or bol. Indian classical music, both northern and southern, has complex, all-embracing rules for the elaboration of possible patterns and each such pattern has its own name, though in practice a few talas are very common while others are rare. The most common instrument for keeping rhythm in Hindustani music is the tabla, while in Carnatic music it is the mridangam (also transliterated as mridang). Examples of bol, notation and additive counting in Hindustani classical music The first beat of any tala, called sam (pronounced as the English word 'sum' and meaning even or equal, archaically meaning nil) is always the most important and heavily emphasised.

Folk music of Ireland Traditional music sessions are commonplace in public houses throughout Ireland The folk music of Ireland (also known as Irish traditional music, Irish trad, Irish folk music, and other variants) is the generic term for music that has been created in various genres in Ireland. Irish traditional music has survived more strongly against the forces of cinema, radio and the mass media than the indigenous folk music of most European countries. This was possibly due to the fact that the country was not a geographical battleground in either of the two world wars.[citation needed] Another potential factor was that the economy was largely agricultural, where oral tradition usually thrives[citation needed]. From the end of the second world war until the late fifties folk music was held in low regard.

The Black Page The Chacarera is a groove from northeast Argentina, especially Santiago del Estero. It was originally played with an instrument called the Bombo leguero that is made of wood and leather and is between 13 to 18 inches in diameter.

Drum Notation Guide Measures & Bar Lines Music is written on a music staff, which features five parallel horizontal lines. The first thing you’ll see written on the staff is the clef; the drum/percussion clef looks like a vertical rectangle and is used with non-pitched percussion instruments. With non-pitched percussion instruments like a drum set, notes written on different spaces and lines indicate that drum, bass drum, or cymbal. The staff is separated into individual measures (or bars) of music with thin vertical lines called bar lines. The number of beats in each measure is determined by the time signature.

Making Music asked Kertz to shed some light on the symptoms, treatments, and preventive measures.

How To Record and Mix Drums- Recording & Mixing Drums for Studio & Live Sound Drums are one of the most complicated instruments to record; not only do they take a lot of skill on both the part of the drummer and the recording engineer to get right, but they take up a lot of space and use a lot of resources to record. In this guide, we'll cover the basics of recording drums in your studio. . If you're a Pro Tools user, you may like my more detailed tutorial on mixing drums in Pro Tools! For this tutorial, I'll be using a Yamaha Recording Custom drum kit with a kick, snare, single rack tom, floor tom, and cymbals. Because most home studios are limited on their inputs and microphone selection, I'll be limited to using only 6 commonly available microphones on the entire drum kit.

Miking for Recording - Drumdojo - By Drummers For Drummers Before we get to actually using microphones in the studio, we need to look at what makes microphones different.
