Quote from: Dewt on January 20, 2020, 01:37:28 PMI forgot to mention the Strong Songs podcast. It will take stone cold classic pop songs and analyse the shit out of them, as well as passionately talking about why the songs are great. Imagine NoSleep's post above extended to an entire song, with clips.It's the perfect podcast for me, somebody who has a reasonable musical education but no practical real practical application of it outside of casually playing instruments.
Quote from: idunnosomename on December 31, 2019, 09:17:50 PMa middle eight is the different bit in the middle, also called a bridge. usually it is vocal and seperate from the solo break.
Quote from: El Unicornio, mang on April 10, 2020, 01:20:51 PMIt always irritated me that the middle 8 is also called the bridge, I always thought the bridge would be a better name for the part that goes between the verse and chorus on some songs (the "bridge" between the two) but learned the name for that is the "pre-chorus"
Quote from: jake thunder on January 15, 2020, 01:53:14 PMI am detecting a slight increase in harmonic sophistication in some current pop music. Wouldn't be surprised if the preponderance of these YouTube vids has an effect on future music. Good stuff. Learning a bit of music theory shouldn't be limited to musicians.
Quote from: Shoulders?-Stomach! on April 10, 2020, 02:15:26 PMDo you not feel a certain cynicism and hollowness at its core though?
QuoteAt this first meeting I brought John a string quartet. He looked at it a long time and then said, 'How did you make this?' I thought of my constant quarrels with (Stefan) Wolpe, and how just a week before, after showing a composition of mine to Milton Babbitt and answering his questions as intelligently as I could, he said to me, 'Morton, I don't understand a word you're saying.' And so, in a very weak voice I answered John, 'I don't know how I made it.' The response to this was startling. John jumped up and down, and with a kind of high monkey squeal, screeched, 'Isn't that marvelous. Isn't that wonderful. It's so beautiful, and he doesn't know how he made it.' Quite frankly, I sometimes wonder how my music would have turned out if John had not given me those early permissions to have confidence in my instincts.
Quote from: NoSleep on March 03, 2020, 01:51:09 PMYeah, Rick Beato is knowledgeable and many of his videos are informative, but a blow by blow account of any song, or a "top 20 greatest intros, drum fills, guitar solos, etc", is a fairly pointless exercise (aside from being clickbait) compared to his videos on modes and symmetrical scales, or how computers have screwed rock music, and why audiences have abandoned rock music. I wish he'd focus less on rock, actually, and let us see more of his jazz roots, but that's also not clickbaity enough for him.

(clap-clap) (clap)Four beats (the 1, 2, 3, 4 bit) and four bars (there are four lines, then the phrase repeats).Middle 8:(If you're listening to a song that's got quite a standard structure) the middle 8 is basically that bit that happens about two thirds of the way through the song that isn't the verse or the chorus. (In songs that have vocals, it's often instrumental.)

Quote from: Marner and Me on June 06, 2020, 10:37:10 AMThat is one of the few things I hate about music. For something that is meant to be free expressionism and a do what you want attitude to it. Music is so formulated. If you don't play an instrument in the right way or make a song in the right way, it doesn't sound 'right' to people.
Quote from: Twit 2 on June 06, 2020, 11:57:14 PMI can't watch more than 30 seconds off him and his affected, smug drawl. Beato is great, though: not up himself, just a genuine, humble enthusiastic guy.

Quote from: earl_sleek on June 07, 2020, 12:40:29 PMIf we're talking smug, I can't fucking stand that grinning twit Jacob Collier. His music is shit as well, though all the other Youtube musos seem to love him.
Quote from: earl_sleek on January 05, 2021, 03:28:54 PMThanks for posting that - I think you're right that Duke doesn't get the attention he deserves, and as a jazz newb I'm looking forward to watching the vid.
