On a recent tab I found it says (falsetto) A, G
is that some sort of progression from a to the g?
Thanks for any help

It's the high part of your voice, when you're no longer in your normal range, you go into a higher sounding range, almost girly.

A falsetto is like a note that is higher than your normal voice range, like just a really high note you can hit like when you're... I dunno squealing or something haha
Just basically a high note you can't get to in your comfortable vocal range

Think Rob Halford when he goes really high.

Rob Halford sometimes and Phil Anselmo do falsetto.

You had me in a panic. For a second I thought google was down...but it turns out you're just lazy.

Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

But the question says he found the notation on a tab... not a vocal score or a lyric sheet.

Mislabeled, perhaps? Can you post a link to this tab so we can see it?

It's when you stop singing in your normal chest range and go into high notes, singing from the throat.

If its referring to guitar I'd guess it either means harmonics or improv - I'm sure I read something about improv being called 'false music' historically, or something like that....don't quote me on that though, I'm just guessing.

it's a type of sexual positon.


no, really, it's the part where Elliott says "on on and Ooooohoonnnn" in the bridge part http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2sfwky4RqQ. He uses falsetto there. If you try and make a girl's voice (assuming you are a guy) that is falsetto.

Holy.... read the question, folks. It's found in a guitar tab, not a vocal score or lyric sheet.

Falsetto is basically throat voice as opposed to chest voice which is the "normal" voice. That high girly voice guys have is falsetto(when you scream like a girl, you use falsetto), some artists use it for songs (Only one that comes to mind right now is Muse, he does it a LOT)

This is a VOCAL thingy. If this is listed on some guitar tab, the tabber is either a moron, tabbed both vocals and guitar, or forgot how harmonics are called (in a messed up totally false way you could look at falsetto as the vocal instrument's harmonics)

There's nothing girly about reaching higher notes.

Sure there is. Just like there's something masculine about hitting the bass notes in a barbershop quartet.

Maybe it was just a note to indicate the part of the song. Like "here are the chords behind the falsetto part."

or maybe... people dont know guitar vocabulary, and thought it was a harmonic?
