    The difference between people who get to that level and normal people is not just the devotion of getting there its also the artist characteristics youre born with, your ability to hear in perfect pitch and the ability to visualize things. Not all people can paint like Leonardo Da Vinci just by practicing enought..

    This is a very important skill for first of all finding new things to fix in your music, but also for learning how not be a perfectionist when it comes to your music. I have finally after 7 years of making my own music started to learn how to listen to it objectively, as someone else's product, and it has been the most benefitting thing for my music ever.

    Great tips on approaches for studying orchestration., asking an instrumentalist about their instrument can be a very informative way of learning from an expert. A creative way to gain practical experience is to orchestrate the same musical passage 3 different ways, - - with a small ensemble arrange, a full orchestral version and an arrangement for a mid sized band. This is an excellent way to compare instrumentation techniques and sounds.

    The Meanings and facts of Sampling and Replayed Sample in Music Sampling is reusing a specific portion of another’s sound recording. The amount used varies; from as little as merely integrating another’s unique drum combinations or guitar rift into a song, to utilizing the entire chorus or a complete verse from a song. This action, in simplest terms, can be viewed as merely “copying” and “pasting” a portion of another’s existing sound recording into your new work. Samples may comprise rhythm, melody, speech, or other sounds. They are usually integrated using hardware (samplers) or software such as digital audio workstations. sampling can be summed up as the exploiting of recorded audio in a new composition and recording, often with differences from the original recording. The original sample may or may not be recognisable, depending on the artists’ intention to either pay homage to the sample or to entirely recontextualize it. Replayed Sample refers to using a melody-or portions of a melody (often with modified lyrics)-from a previously recorded song but re-recording the melody instead of sampling it. Interpolation is often used when the artist or label who owns the piece of music declines to license the sample, or if licensing the piece of music is considered too costly also called interpolation So that’s the meanings and facts of Sampling and Replayed Sample in Music

    Seems a bit strange to be able to own a single note/tone, it's almost a building block of nature and likely recreated thousands of times unintentionally. There must be a grey line here. For instance, if I take a sliver of a second (0.02 seconds) to create a sound of my own, doesn't anyone really own that or did I misunderstand?

  • jinjxmusic
    jinjxmusic Month ago

    Thank you so much. I've been playing guitar for so many years and have gotten in the habit of using mainly the "middle four" strings. I will play the straight chords and invert them though I believed playing in this way was more beautiful because it utilizes one of the bass notes. I recently went to a jazz camp and was quickly and politely challenged on that. A great teacher said: "So, I know you play solo so using your low A and low E work great with that. But for ensemble work, I'd like to challenge you to use your top four strings with a focus on the 3rd and 7th chords." It's sent me back to the drawing board in a way and watching this chord puzzle has me smiling ear to ear. Thanks or giving us the tools.
