Anticipation Study

Post by foal30 » Sun Feb 05, 2012 7:46 pm

this came around from a discussion I had with a musician who was struggling to get the feel of a tune. He has good rhythm his problem was not 'feeling' the chord change that feel on a beat that was not the white people's favorite , 1 or 3.

I write these out , hopefully they make some sense. One of the many, many benefits of reading music and learning their is seemingly complex things can be solved or understood quicker.

these two tunes are not very similar yet they use the same 'anticipation' of the 1 beat to create a tension or rhythmic kick.

Listening to some salsa will get that anticipation happening too. When I do a jazz gig, I'm always looking for a drummer who will anticipate the one every time the top of the chart comes around. This gives a lot of movement and impetus to the tune, plus is a hip tool.
BTW: Ya left off the tails of the 1/8th notes in the B7 bar of Dont Stop Believing. :)

it seems to be a common thing of '90s rock, like grungy music too.

I got a scanner so I'll try and get something up on here each week to ponder or laugh at.

Marty you should do this too. slightly hinting. :D

I been missing out on stuff here,thanks foal,i look at music charts a little different than i ever used to 12 months ago,i am trying to learn to read after 20 years of playing,but still trying to shake off that need to hear it before i fully understand and play it, which is fundamentally wrong i know,but still determined to learn to read,and progressing thankfully, albeit slowly.

magic band the Whigs fo sure

don't know how I missed them when they were actually current.

Chris, slowly is good. Deep practice is the go, not rip , tear and bust. even 20 minutes a day will make a huge impact in your playing and also your ability to listen to music.

Probably because Nirvana was overshadowing everything close to "different" rock back then.
I personally thin Dulli is a genius. I kept stealing the album Gentlemen (on tape) off my flatmate. The interplay between the guitars and the drums and bass blew me away, it really helped me musically.

Cheers for that, I even went out and bought a keyboard to help me understand chord composition and see things more black and white so to speak.Enjoying it.

keys are good and yes 'seeing' the chord lay out or construct is helpful

they were a good band for sure. a nice mix of seemingly disparate influences too.
I'll probably end up buying all their records.
