^^ In jazz and whatnot when you trade solos it's called "trading fours" (or eights, or twos, or ones, or tens, or w/e) because it's often one person solos over four measures then the next person takes four, and etc. etc.

But if you are clueless as to measures or if you're not doing it by measure, you could just call it...trading off, I guess.

i think the ideology behind what justin yap is referring to is considered a 'call and response' type solo or a 'question and answer' it's a really good basic way to compose or improv a solo and is used by lots of musicians and can be used by just one person, not necessarily 2.

A "duel" or "call and answer."

Hard Tail-Fixed Bridge, no whammy bar

Tremolo-A rapid fluctuation in volume. This is used a lot in surf music. Many people refer to their whammy bars as tremolo bars. This is misleading. The Bar changes pitch, not volume. You should call the bar a vibrato bar or a whammy bar, or even simply bar.

what are eights?


There are 4 quarter notes in a 4/4 bar, there are 2 8th notes in a quarter note.
So when you tap your foot, 1 2 3 4. For 8th notes you would go.

1 and 2 and 3 and 4.

The 1,2,3,4 is still landing in the exact same spots, but your picking notes in between them.

Lol and here's a correct definition -

Chops

1. Ability to play an instrument. To have great chops is to be technically or stylistically profient on a musical instrument.

2. This term also has a double meaning. If a drummer is said to "have chops" or "be working on his chops," it refers to technical abilities, such as speed, dexterity, the ability to play lots of notes in fills, etc. No particular style is involved: Jazz, rock, or any other type of drummers might have "chops." If a drummer is said to be playing with a lot of chops, that means that he is playing a fairly busy part, with a lot of notes. ...

It's not really the muscles, but the skill involved in general.

#1 is dead on. #2...I don't know about drums so I can't add anything but the term chops was first coined by the Jazz guys. They would play the melody of the song and then the members of the band would get a chance to do a break...or an improve on their instrument. Their skill on their instrument was evaluataed as chops. That was a good answer Dude...help me out with this. I want to understand it and where can I get it in terms of theory about the cage system? Anyone? I had this music teacher that was going to teach me but all he really did was show off how well he could play the guitar. He wasn't that good and he was a dickhead. Another thing...what is the rule of thirds? Thanks

^ jazz guys did start the chops thing. It comes from your literal "chops" on your face - which became very well developed when one played enough jazz saxophone/trumpet/general wind or brass.

Sustain?
It's when you play a note and it lasts a long time. A note with a lot of sustain will last a long time and sound clear (Santana). A note with little sustain will fade out quickly.

There are no set guidelines, but I use riff to describe a rhythm passage and lick to describe a lead passage.

Riff-"Walk This Way"
Lick-The part of "Sweet Child" where the solo gets a little nastier.

good answer dude, and Nautaflcl...go find a book with licks in it you dumb fu-k. Lady Madona, Purple Haze, Pretty Woman...all these are licks. A lick is a musical phrase that is universally accepted by the masses as being the sh-t. Lick this you dumb sh-t!

semitones are 1 fret between each note. like on the low E string, the first fret is F. the second is the semitone, F#, then the third is G. two frets are tones, while 1 fret is a semitone.

This thread is a good idea, I'll add a few!

Feedback -
The hum you get when a string vibrates for a while, the note stops and then you get this OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sound that lasts forever until you touch the string. This sound is typically achived by standing right in front of your amplifier (with your guitar facing it) with high gain. This sound can be a very useful tool once you figure it all out, but can be very annoying to listeners who hear this screaching noise for a long time. I'm not TOO sure on how the science of this works, but I can guess that the note goes out of your amp, and then your pickups pickup its own noise, and this happens repeatedly; ultimately giving you a humming sound.


its actualy in technical terms when the sound coming from your amp loops throught the guitar and comes out the amp again

the answer you got for semitones is right on...one fret is equal to one half-step or one semitone. "flat" refers to lowering a note one semitone..C to B (which is Cb enharmonically-just another name the note goes by). "sharp" is raising a note one semitone..C to C# (or Db). the best definition i can give for music theory is that it is the study of the roles notes, intervals, scales, key sigs, time sigs, etc. play in composing music, and explains why some things work well together & some don't.

you're doing yourself a huge favor if you learn theory. it has cleared up so many things i didn't understand previously.
