          what's the difference between 3/4 and 6/8

          • 2 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            Rhythmic feel.
            6/8 is more common for music played with guitars since in a 6/8 strumming pattern your downstrum happens 6 times per measure, it's therefore a different rhythmic feel compared to 3/4.

            3/4 is for pieces that want 3 beats in a bar, like waltzes. They also like 3/8 for similar reasons.
            6/8 is a two-beat that gets used a lot in marches, for example the Liberty Bell march.

        top number is the number of beats per measure, button is what kind of note = 1 beat, so I this case the eighth note is, meaning that every note is twice it's usual length from typical 4/4 time. Maybe I'm wrong, I did music theory for a while but completely forgot about it already

          I dont really know music theory deeply but i can read music rather okay, and play in an amateur big band.

          I got lost in your explanation. Yes, the top number indicates the amount of notes/figures per beat , and as far as I understand, the bottom one indicates which figure is the one reffered to at the top. In this case, it says every measure fits six eighths or quavers.

          You know its a waltz-ish kind of tempo because you can divide the measure in ONE-two-three's.

          Its also confusing because the music sheet starts at an upbeat which means its just the second half 9f the measure.

          It doesn't have anything to do with length of notes, it's just to allow subdivision by 3.
          Time signatures with a 4 on the bottom have beats that are easily divided into halves. Time signatures with an 8 on the bottom have beats that are easily divided into thirds, which seems a bit counterintuitive at first, but hopefully this will help.
          There are also time signatures with a 16 on the bottom for when they really want to fuck you up.

        Both answers are wrong.
        Tempo is how fast the music is. Usually it's given in Italian, but these days people also frequently give you a BPM marking that looks like pic related.
        In this case the tempo is 60 bpm, where each beat corresponds to one crotchet (the note to the left of the number), so every crotchet is 1 second long. That's your tempo.
        In other time signatures the marking uses other notes, but the general principle is the same, just with different units for the beat.

              The note that Sol is on if you're in any key other than C is not going to be G. Sol in the key of F is C, not G, so it's incorrect to say Sol is G.

        Yes, there is another email that explains how to solve it, but you can technically solve just using the key and the encripted message. It's a 4 digit code mixed into fictional names for songs, sometimes it's the number directly number and some other times it's spelled, like three, six, two, etc.

    If you want to play by ear and learn jazz/inprov technique, learn intervals (& scales)
    If you want to communicate with other musicians and perform music recitals and covers, learn the letter note names and sheet music.
    If you want to become a singer, learn via solfege (but you're better off learning either of the above instead anyway, honestly)

    This is irrefutable.

    What's the best way to get back into playing piano? I used to be decent mechanically but I was a dumb kid that didn't pay attention to theory so I don't understand how anything fits together. I don't really want to go back to autistically memorizing sheet music and brute forcing my way through the song. What's a good way to pick up theory? Are there good MIT OCW courses?

    • 2 weeks ago

      Learn intervals, practice scales and intervals and do a lot of improvising to keep it fun. This'll give you far greater ability at playing by ear which is more useful than reading sheet music is.

    I consider myself a decent musician but I never learned how to read music competently. I can understand it if I sit down and study it slowly but reading it on the fly is beyond me, I guess I was spoiled by guitar tabs.

      kek, I took like 2 years of theory but I play trombone and euph, so I still can't quickly transpose treble in my head since I'm in bass 99.99999% of the time.

    Why the fuck are you retards talking about fixed Do that always starts at C and not moveable Do that is actually useful and actually used? They only teach fixed Do so that literal children can get a grasp of it before being taught about actual music theory.

    Scale degrees are the primary analytical tool, absolute notes are secondary. You can transpose a melodic idea to literally any scale and still use solfege without giving a single fuck about the exact notes. Try doing that with note names.

        If you’re not a complete beginner, and still use tabs instead of figuring out the song you want to play by ear, or better yet making your own music, you’re shit and should just quit.

      I did. In every public primary school in my state there's a once per week band class taken by professional music teachers during years 5 and 6. Every kid gets lent an instrument for 2 years, and then at the end of year 6 they can buy the instrument outright at a heavy discount if they can't afford a real one and want to keep playing.

    Do you press three keys at the same time when trying to play either of those middle triple notes?

    • 2 weeks ago

      No, they're sequential. If they want you to play more than one note at the same time they're vertically aligned (there are a bunch on the page behind it)
      The way the notes are joined in the OP is just to make the groups easier to read.

          The ones with tails are half the duration of the ones with straight stems. The ones that are connected are the same as the ones with tails. They're connected to each other because it makes them easier to read.
          The other notes are not connected to each other because only the ones with tails get connected, and even then they won't connect them across bar lines (again just to make them easier to read)

    i hate rhythm i hate it so goddamn much i'm so fucking bad at it. it's nearly impossible for me to subdivide time in my head properly so I have to grind forever so my ANDs are right in the middle of beats (1 AND 2 AND 3 AND 4). it took a half hour of clapping like a retard with my instructor to get the timing of 3 beats against 1 with the third beat tied to the next beat. i bought rhythm doctor thinking it might be good practice but i couldn't beat the first boss because i can't fucking keep time even in a game where i just have to press a single button against the 7th beat of every measure WITH NO CHANGES IN THE RHYTHM. i'm so fucking bad at music period but i can't give up now because i'm also too dumb to quit

      Get a metronome or use an online equivalent.

        Anonymous

        my piano has a metronome that i use and I also have a vibrating one I use every so often if I really can't get a feel for the pulses. at this point i'm thinking of just wearing headphones for a day and just having a metronome playing in the background just to see if it helps at all

        What instrument do you play?
        Try practicing with a metronome regularly. Use a DAW to record yourself during practice. Ideally, find a MIDI of a song you're trying to learn so you can see how the notes are subdivided (although this may be a bit hard if you're a complete newbie to music, since it assumes you know what the tempo/time signature is of the song and how to import it properly...), it really helps to have a good teacher that lets you learn things more practically rather than clapping like a mongoloid which won't teach you shit.

        piano. I should try playing along to stuff again, last time I attempted it was when i was much fresher.
        >it really helps to have a good teacher that lets you learn things more practically rather than clapping like a mongoloid which won't teach you shit.
        we ended up clapping because I couldn't get the rhythm right at the keys after about an eternity. we've tried foot tapping while I was playing but i literally can't coordinate my hands and foot on time

          >we've tried foot tapping while I was playing but i literally can't coordinate my hands and foot on time
          Try nodding your head or swaying your body to the beat whilst you play. Getting a good sense of rhythm is tricky when you're new as it's not something you can force, you just have to 'feel' it. It my help if you actively listen to more music, especially music that relates to whatever you're trying to play.

      When I'm struggling to subdivide I practice with a metronome set to double the real tempo so it clicks half beats for me. Other than that you'll just learn what rhythms are meant to sound like over time. There are only a few patterns that come up again and again, and then the rest is just mixing and matching.
