Martillo y Tumbao The martillo (“mar-tee-yo”; English: “hammer”) is a rhythm played by the bongos in Afro-Cuban music.

“Slide” is a method in which a sawed-off glass bottleneck or metal tube is slipped over one of the left-hand fingers in order to be able to slide over the strings from one fret to the other (“Frets” are the thin pieces of wood that are inlaid horizontally across a guitar neck, indicating where the fingers should press in order to create specific notes, or pitches.) The use of both the bottleneck and the bending of strings by the left hand delivers the player with the capability to slide from one group of pitches or chord to another. This sliding or “bending” of pitch is also a hallmark of the blues vocal style. Johnson’s singing style also proves the “holler” that is strongly characteristic of Delta blues and a number of other African-American musical
According to him, ‘they are clean and quick and can handle fast transients’. For example, they were used on the kick and snare on some of the cuts on Need You Now. For the Acoustic Guitar Recording, Paul sent the microphones through a Gordon Preamp, and then through a Manley Vari‑mu, with some subtle compression, to add some air at the top. The acoustic piano was recorded with two Telefunken 251s, going into a GML preamp and GML EQ. Microphone Placement For the acoustic guitars, Paul used a Neumann/Gefell M582 close to the 12th fret, pointing downwards, and a Neumann U67 placed towards the body of the guitar, pointing upwards.

Some woodwinds have a single reed, whereas others, such as the bassoon, have two reeds which vibrate against each other. Like the brass family, a woodwind is a pipe that has a bell at the end, however, it does not always curve and widen. Also not unlike the brass, certain woodwinds have mouthpieces such as the single reed instruments, and the capped double reed instruments, but some woodwinds, such as the open flute, do not require a mouthpiece. Woodwind instruments may be made of any material, including wood, brass, silver, and gold. In an orchestra, the woodwind section today may include two bassoons, clarinets, flutes, and oboes, a bass flute, alto flute, piccolo, basset horn, and several types of saxophones.
Even though not as evident as Cool Jazz, improvisation played an significant part in the early history of Baroque music. (2) The accompaniment part in Baroque music was written with figured bass symbols that were meant to be improvised over. (3) The use of improvised embellishment was also common in secular and sacred music. (4) The basso continuo also provided rhythmic spur which did more than just fulfill the role of the harmony. (6) Baroque music improvisation can be classified into 2 major classifications: embellishments with a sole unchangeable implementation (such as trills and grace notes) or improvisation directly on the melody utilizing passaggi (scalar patterns), arpeggios and imitation.

It is because many of these instruments were not being used or have been converted into a more modern form of instruments that we used nowadays. Most of the woodwind instruments were made in a pipe-like a shape with very tiny holes in their sideways and used more often during the 16th century. According to Smith (50), from the year 1450s to 1550s, several woodwind instruments were designed in different sizes and shapes and performed using human voices. Many instruments such as guitar, trombone, trumpet, oboe and flute, which we use today, can be traced back to previous elements of the Renaissance.
Listerine was originally a surgical disinfectant. It was made by the Johnson brothers, who were looking for a way to make surgeries safer and were inspired by English surgeon Sir Joseph Lister.

The song has a common time signature in AABA form with partial reprise. The arrangement of the composition featured vocals, harmonica, acoustic rhythm guitar, tambourine, and drums. The use of a Harmonic as a lead instrument played by John Lennon is a prominent feature of the composition that creates melody against the open chords played on the acoustic guitar by George Harrison. John Lennon oddly plays the F natural as the first note of the opening motif on the harmonica, which adds an Mixolydian modal inflection. George Harrison plays the chords G major and C major before moving the chords to D major, C major and G major for the middle eight.

The Yanomami is a tribe of indigenous peoples that inhabit land between the Mavaca and Orinoco rivers, near the border of Venezuela and Brazil. The Yanomami’s environment is located within the tropical moist broad-leaf forest that is the Amazon Jungle. Their territory encompasses 200-300 villages accommodating a total population of about 26 000 to 35 000 people and making the largest relatively isolated tribe in South America. First sustained contact with the Yanomami and other cultures occurred in the 1940s when the Brazilian government sent teams to fix the limits of the Venezuelan border. Soon thereafter, in the 1950s religious missionaries situated themselves in the Yanomami’s territory and due to the introduction of many new people resulted
