  • Playing A Bass Guitar Essay

    sound? Have you ever wanted to impress your friends by playing a musical instrument? Are six strings to much for you? If you answered yes to any of these, then the electric bass may be for you.

It has been my all-time favorite song since I was in high school, and was one of the first songs I learned how to play on guitar. It is a stellar example of rock music that was popular in the seventies and displays the accomplished songwriting talents of lead singer Ann Wilson, her guitar-playing sister Nancy, as well as the contributions of the other members of the band: Howard Leese, Roger…

For me, that would include heavy…

  • The Girl Is Mine Analysis

    It began with creepy sound effects including the slamming of doors, thunder crashes, and the ticking of a clock. The vocals start at 1:00, which was a very long introduction in comparison to tracks 2 and 3. Michael Jackson’s voice paints the picture of a horror movie mixed with a pop song. I enjoyed the trumpet’s staccato notes at 1:45. “Thriller” is a song that is easy to be stuck in someone’s head because it is so catchy. I enjoyed the bass part even though it was repetitive. The vibe of the…

  • Heavy Metal Music Analysis

    Music is the international medium that can link both mind and soul. From sophisticated, well drawn out classical music, to drums and rocks in Aboriginal tribes in Africa, music is a natural and seemingly God-given talent we all possess. “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent,” it is supernatural yet so uniquely human simultaneously (Hugo).

It is very impressive to see Questlove in the interview deliberately play every…
