“No Limit”: I’m going with the track itself here, not the video, which is over six minutes of some more wordsmiths taking their turns. Not sure whether to call the “get some money” bit a pre-, post-, bridge, or a refrain: maybe not a bridge because it appears too early, and not a pre- as it’s after the chorus. I’m going with a post-chorus, as its repetition is too long for a refrain, and we’ve already got a chorus. The post-chorus (as we saw last year) is becoming a less and less rare animal in the form kingdom. Lastly, how could you not love all those beat drop-outs in Cardi’s verse, and all those 64th notes in the beat in general?

Sometimes the bass sounds great merely doubling what is being played on the guitar — and especially when that guitar is being played by Jimmy Page. John Paul Jones actually had tons of bass-hooky songs, but here in “Over the Hills and Far Away,” the bass is a bit subdued throughout most of it — which makes this particular section stand out even more. That section is when Page climbs out of his solo with a three-octave arpeggiated run, and Jones follows alongside with a standard pattern of root-third-fifth-minor seventh across each octave, a mixolydian theme that would sound good in basically any context.

According to Hughes, “The remaining notes, on the next rung down, are all of the notes left in the key of C major that are not C, E, or G. So that would be D, F, A, and B.” These are the diatonic notes that produce other chords in need of resolving back to the root.

There are many more harmonics (infinitely many more, in theory) but these first five are the most audible ones, and they’re the only ones you need in order to build yourself a versatile tuning system.

Veteran sound engineer Vishal Nayak of Black Lodge Recording will take you through the process of recording a professional-grade demo in a day using only two microphones. The course covers the “basics” — how to record all of your instruments and sort out your arrangement so you have a track you can be proud of at home. Don’t think of it as recording a “demo” — you’ll be learning how to do a lot with very little. Throughout the course, you’ll follow along as singer-songwriter Arthur Lewis records his original track “We Ride.”

The verses of “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” contain those three top-tiered notes (1, 3, and 5) 57% of the time and the pre-chorus contains them 50% of the time. But the chorus uses these notes 85% of the time, meaning that it’s both pleasurable and predictable when it repeats and allows us to sing along in our heads (or in our showers).

One of the most valuable skills a musician can have is being able to identify musical intervals by ear. Once you can comfortably pick out musical intervals as you hear them, you are officially on your way towards the upper echelons of musical ability. But, let’s step back for a moment. What is an interval?

That’s right — the entire minor pentatonic scale is contained within the Dorian mode. Therefore, we are free to play with the addition of the 2nd and 6th scale degrees. Not only can we layer the Dorian mode over the minor pentatonic scale, but the 2nd and 6th degrees present in the Dorian mode also belong to the major pentatonic scale, which players like the Three Kings (Albert, Freddie, and B.B.), Eric Clapton, and Jimmy Page commonly weaved into their solos.

Based on a narrative from the avant-garde writer Frank Wedekind, Lulu details the rise, fall, and violent death of a sexually adventurous dancer (murdered by Jack the Ripper, no less). It shocked readers by showing true love and romantic opportunism side by side, criticizing what Wedekind saw as the hypocritical bourgeois attitude towards sexuality at the time. The story has continued to resonate throughout the years, and the story’s place at the center of Metallica and Lou Reed’s controversial collaboration only speaks to its ability to both entice and polarize audiences.

The right kick drum sound can make or break the energy of your song, and the way the rest of the instruments stand up in mixing. Here’s how to choose it.

But sometimes getting a good price isn’t enough to justify hoarding equipment. If you got it for a good price chances are you could turn it around get just as much for it — if not more! Which leads me to my next point.
