The Musical Development Of Singing

If the domain of the technique is essential to fully develop the voice, musicality is absolutely essential in order to be a good interpreter. Without this condition voice serves very little because their main purpose is to allow singer to interpret the score, according to the requirements of the author.

To properly develop the musical conditions it is necessary that the applicant carried out relevant studies, which include the solf eggio, whose domain is very important. However, that is not born with the qualities needed by many who strives in the study, not can become a good interpreter.

I have met many applicants who possessed a great preparation in terms of musical studies and, however, her singing lacked musicality. On the other hand, there are others that just they are able to read a score and, despite this lack, sung with a musical quality that is truly amazing, because a musician can be without dominating the solfeggio and, on the other hand, never be a musician although happens life studying. Subject study only serves to develop the natural conditions. Whereby the both this orphan of talent devoted to art, cannot Excel in any other matter.

The tuning and musical quadrature are fundamental rules to dedicate himself to singing, although the musicality of a singer is not just interpret a work keeping the rhythm and the right tuning, they also needed other requirements like the melodic sense, legato or the ability of nuance.

The singing teacher has to be honored with the student and always put to the current, both of the positive and negative, showing you their strengths and weaknesses. So the student can be realistic about their potential, because depending on the case, both the excess of optimism and pessimism can be very harmful.

Aside from the pitch, rhythmic conditions of the student are also essential in order to be a good interpreter.

The sense of rhythm is not to follow the score, measuring note after note, but in singing with flexibility, and can lengthen or shorten the value of it, never losing the beat, speeding it up or slowing it, according to the demands of the work.

Another important facet in the musical line of an interpreter is legato, whose domain it is impossible to carry out if there is a good vocal setting. This depends on the sound, which must resound continually as a Basso continuo, an organ, or a bagpipe, vibrating in the corresponding resonators of homogeneous and permanently without being altered by the change of vowel, the word joint, or the distance of the interval. Therefore, only when there is a good vocal technique may be the sugary and nuances needed, without breaking sound homogeneity, which makes up a good line of singing.

The absence of this domain implies the accomplishment of a portamento dragged, devoid of legato and, therefore, of musical line.

Some singers try to disguise this defect by annulling the sugary. This resource tends to be fairly common in the German school, which sometimes generates a song somewhat flat and monotonous, unless its representation run in charge of great figures.

The Italian school, on the other hand, has always given many performers who have done with elegance and an admirable legato portamento.

The mastery of vocal technique is essential to carry out other musical aspects of the song as the coloratura.

Another very important part in the formation of an interpreter is the domain of the middle voice, fundamental requirement that enriches the singing musicality and interpretive capacity. It is impossible to express with realism sweet parts of a work without the use of the middle voice.

Until several decades ago many were interpreters who dominated the middle voice, on the other hand, except some female voices, are now very few people can do it properly. The domain of the middle voices one of the technical aspects more difficult to dominate, which gave much importance in my classes.

When there is a perfect setting, in which records are well balanced and the voice reaches its complete freedom, the interpreter may issue from the stronger sound to the weaker without any effort. Once this sound domain partly strong, medium and soft voice, sounds, may line passing between Fort called chest voice to the pianíssimo season of head, making a perfect reduction of sound without resorting to falsetto. In this way you will not receive any kind of change in the same and the voice will vibrate even in weaker pianos.

Only when one achieves this important domain can bring the richness of nuances that requires the art of singing, with which the interpreter will have all the means at its disposal to be able to give full expression.

The best piano brand

Just over one year ago we launched a Best Survey Sites so that our visitors to vote and tell us which is in your view the brand best of pianos. So far have voted nearly 2500 people from many countries of the world. The result is very interesting and is shown in the following graphic.

Encuesta de los 40 principales pianos

Cursiosamente to the head is the Yamaha brand with almost twice the votes than mark that follows him not so close: Steinway & Sons. The field is located in third place “Other brand” indicating a brand of pianos not referred to in the form. Bösendorfer pianos are located only in the fourth place. It is very interesting that brands like Yamaha aventajen Steinway with twice as many votes. This implies, to our way of seeing, a grand strategy of quality and construction of instruments by Yamaha as well as also a large marketing campaign.

12 laws that you must observe if you want to improve your singing voice

mejorar tu voz al cantar

You already take some time practicing with your voice, you can that you’ve started a few weeks ago, months or even can that you take years, but your voice still improve singing.

I know from my own that how to improve your singing voice now

While it is true that you need to improve your singing voice is notable practice much in the correct way, I present the following things you can do now to start getting results.

#1 law: Do not shout

If you do not get that mid and high notes are easy, it is likely that you’re shouting them.

What I mean by this?

Audio is worth more than thousand words :)

What you should not do

Audio Player

00: 00
Use Left/Right Arrow keys to advance one second, Up/Down arrows to advance ten seconds.
00: 00

Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

Do not shout, mixture!

Audio Player

00: 00
Use Left/Right Arrow keys to advance one second, Up/Down arrows to advance ten seconds.
00: 00

Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

As you can see, the control of vowels has much to do with this law.

Law #2: Accept your head voice and train

Ignore this law is equivalent to smite you against a wall for wanting to pass it.

When you have to do is surround him.

And the vast majority of the men chose to try to burst the wall…

Although at first your head voice sounds weak, it is necessary that you train the muscles involved in its production and that you get used to the feeling.

Thus, at the end it will come the moment in which you can add more power to the sound, until themixed voice.

Law #3: Accept your chest voice and train

The same thing but in reverse.

Very common in women is that gives them fear used his chest voice.

If you’re a woman, and it happens to you, it is likely that you seem that you are shouting or that you sound very aggressive.

The first thing I want to tell you is that don’t worry that, because it is not so.

Maybe you’re accustomed to speak smoothly, but that does not mean that if you increase your power you are going to be screaming.

You need to train the muscles governing chest voice if you want that your voice is not fatigue, and also if you want to get a strong mixed voice.

Would you like some tips to learn how to exercise the chest voice? Click here.

Law #4: Do not use brute force

It is sometimes not that you’re shouting or not.

It may even be that not even using a high volume.

But still and so it may be that you are using much more muscle than you should.

And don’t blame you!

If your vocal cords do not know what to do to make certain notes, acute or severe, your body will try to come to their rescue and will try to help them make those notes.

Unfortunately, this never has a happy ending.

If you’re using a rather high volume, you do not delay a minute more and practice by lowering it considerably.

Practice to a volume almost inaudible if necessary.

But you need to get used to singing you don’t assume an effort.

You are not using a high volume and still feel the pressure on your neck?

You’re probably doing exercises or songs too difficult for you at the moment.

Or maybe you have enough level to make them, but perhaps you’re not heating before.

Want to know how warm the voice? Click here.

Law #5: Don’t always notes

Sharp notes are always a problem.

We sometimes force, sometimes we cry, sometimes falsettovoice, breaking us…

But often the problem is that we think that the sharp notes are up and we have to reach them.

Not so, or at least it should not be.

If you are going as you’re climbing note entering you more fear and insecurity because you don’t know if you’ll be able to make those notes or not, you can be sure that something is not going well and you can stop at that very moment.

Do not continue, because it is not what you should be feeling.

You must focus on all the notes “are at the same level”, i.e., that you don’t have to reach them.Simply they are there.

Would you like a little exercise that works wonders with this?

First, put you foot.

Now, prepare a scale that begins in your chest and end up in your head voice voice.

In each note di the syllable ‘NOU’.

And now I want to make a reverence nothing more start the scale.

When you start scale, you’ll be standing completely straight, and begin to bend to finish less than 90º in the acute note, to stay straight at the end of the scale.

If you do well, you’ll notice that sharp notes are much easier to make.

Not, when songs will not have to do this :)

But now you’ve felt that it may be easier, and that is what will help you to comply with this law.

Law #6: Centres not your work and your attention on the breath

This is a much simpler matter than you are accustomed.

Yes, I tell you very seriously. Breathing exercises are not going to make singing better.

Nor is it likely that you need to increase your lung capacity.

In fact, take much air will put more obstacles in your learning.

The most important thing you should know about the breath is that you breathe in a relaxed way.

Simply grab air and allow your abdomen to expand. It prevents your shoulders are tightened or overreact to rise.

Excess air in the voice and other problems that it seems that they are born of bad management of the breath, must in fact focus on fix the real problem.

In this article Esther explains this issue in much more depth.

Law #7: Not increase the volume to get the sharp notes

At least not until you’re ready, and this may prove to be longer than you would like to.

But the sooner you accept this law and respect it, before you get access to that power.

This we have already spoken in more detail in this article.

The volume should never be a requirement to make certain notes.

So if for you it is impossible to lower the volume on sharp notes, you must focus on make them each time with less volume.

#8 law: Don’t manipulate the natural sound of your voice

Like the sound of his voice to very few people when listening to it.

Even to professional singers.

If you are in the process of learning how to do new things with your voice (notes sharp, increase the volume, controlling dynamics, etc.) it may be that the temptation to manipulate your voice is very strong.

For example, many people talk about “cover the voice” to the notes of the passage.

This makes those who do not know how to do it try to imitate opera singers, engolando voice and drowning it.

It can also make you look that your voice is too acute, and so you try put more force in all notes.

Do this ahead of time will bring the problems mentioned in the law number 4.

Or it may be also that you want sound very sweet, and so almost whisper instead of singing.

This will fatigue your voice considerably, going to Miss power and can create vocal problems.

#9 law: Not take blindly as technical reference your favorite singers

There are many good singers out there.

Some give to fear…

But many of the most famous singers use many tricks of study for his records.

And that’s what comes to us, a product handling and unreal.

Taking that as a reference to imitate is disastrous for our technique.

If they cry, in the study the frequencies can be molded in order to play not shouted.

If you Detune, with a little magic of study is arranged.

That they have been forcing his voice and stop recording until the next day? Here no one learns, because that we do not see it in the disk.

Nor do we know how many shots have to record a single phrase from a song.

Anyway, I think that you’ve already got the idea.

If you want to take a look at singers, I recommend that you first ensure that your technique is good.

Law #10: Learn new skills takes time

This law is more attitude than anything else, but I think that you we need to take this into account, and why I’ve included it.

It is totally unrealistic to think that you can learn to dance at a professional level in a few months.

Or to fix cars.

Or programming computers.

Or to design aircraft.

Or if you want to to accounting for a large restaurant.

Then… what makes you think that sing best is different?

It’s the same thing!

Every day you practice, you’ll be a little better, but there are no miracles.

Therefore, I invite you to read this article where I talk about this long and hard.

Law #11: Don’t crush your voice for hours

On the other hand, practice relentlessly will be counterproductive to your voice.

And for your encouragement, I would say.

You can not wear you do vocal exercises, or sing songs for 2 or 3 hours non-stop for a minute.

When you start practicing, little by little your voice will be heating up and come a point where you begin again to assimilate the muscle coordinations correct, if you’re doing the exercises that you do and the way in which you do them.

But the voice is a muscle, and all muscle gets tired.

Come a point where instead of working, the voice will be fatiguing.

And if you want to improve your voice for singing, that is not the way.

Fatigue, however small, that will make your vocal cords ever resist less and other muscles come into play to “help them”.

From that point on, everything you do only will serve to install bad habits in your voice.

Remember: practice makes perfection. The practice creates permanence, for better and for worse.

If you’re going to be an hour practicing, take a break.

You don’t have to be very long. A couple of minutes each time will suffice.

As you increase the time of practice, also increases the frequency and duration of breaks.

More information? Here you have it.

Law #12: There are no magic formulas that fix or you become the overnight professional

Many people have asked me that they can take to improve singing voice, remove voice loss, so the voice sounds cleaner…

And the answer is: Nothing!

If you want to increase your rank, improve the sound of your voice, etc. what you have to do is to improve the control over this, working on your vocal technique.

It is possible that there are things that will help you to alleviate discomforts vocal, but unless it is a mechanical problem and non-functional, the only thing you will get is alleviate the symptoms, but does not fix the problem

Home remedies are well, we in fact have an article about the subject, but won’t improve your technique.

It is important that you have this clear.

Only with this will you improve your singing voice?

Yes, but this is only the first step.

Instead of considering these laws as all you need to improve your singing voice, I want you to understand that if you do not respect them, aren’t you never get.

If you respect them, every day you practice you’ll be closer to get the voice you want.

The Superior singing method is simple

Drumming is to coordinate the movements of the arms and legs, that’s all.

  • No need to read music
  • No need to know the musical notes
  • You do not need the gift for music

Learning to play the drums is more to the sport than to the theoretical study. It’s like learning to swim: you have to train your body to move your arms and legs. Not worth reading books on the subject, to learn to swim you have to get wet.

Similarly, it takes practice to learn to play the drums, you need to “train” members. Are just two steps to learn:

  1. Understand the movement (mentally), assimilate it.
  2. Perform the movement.

The Baterna course teaches you how to understand and execute various rhythms: rock, reggae, country and waltz, among others. Being a 100% practical course , each class has detailed instructions and two MP3 files for you to download and listen to the rhythm while running.

And the best part is that you do not need a battery . The process is to “read” the pace, hear it and move to run it. Any hit on the legs, on a desk, in the car’s steering wheel or on a real drum;motion is the same.

To start the course, read the instructions below and already start Lesson 1. Download the MP3 and get ready to make a noise. Within minutes you will be playing!


The playing position is exactly the same that is used to type on the computer.

  • Sit on a low chair. The feet should be flat on the floor.
  • Let your arms loose beside the body with open hands resting on your thighs, palm down.

The movement is very simple. Just hit with the palm thigh and hit the ground, mimicking the movements made on a real drum.

  • Tap the right hand on the right thigh, left hand on left thigh. No need to beat strong, the important thing is to execute the movement.
  • The trampled is like on the car accelerator, the heel stays on the ground and the toe moves. Only the right foot is used. Avoid Carpe floor because it makes no noise in the trampled. Nor is it necessary to step on strong, but I know you will do just that;)

The battery is an instrument made up of several “parts”: box, hi-hat, cymbals, bass drum, tom-tom and deaf. All the rhythms of this course use only the three basic parts.

Piece Name Sound Study
Hi-hat tss Right hand
Box okay Left hand
Bass drum tum Right foot

Attention: If you are left-handed (a) , reverse the hands in the instructions to follow, hitting the hi-hat with the left and the box with the right. The “good” hand is always the hi-hat, which marks the time. But the right hand still in his right leg, and his left hand on his left leg, do not cross your arms. The bass drum also changes, step with the left foot.

Lesson 1 – Punk Rock

1 2 3 4
Hi-hat (D)



Box (E)
Bumbo (Foot)
Download MP3: training , normal rhythm .

Punk rock is the very basics. Simple rhythm used in the songs of the Ramones and other rock bands. The pace alternating tapping the enclosure and the bass drum ( okay tum tum’re okay tum … ), with the hi-hat marking the progress (time).

Let’s start playing

Count to four aloud (or mentally) continuously and repetitively: 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 … Slowly count trying to keep pace, without accelerating or braking.

  • For convenience, you can use a clock and counting every second.
  • You can also shake my head every count, as when listening to good music. This will help keep the pace.
  • Curiosity: This count is “time” music, the “driving” the pace.

Now look at the rate table. The hi-hat (” tss “) appears in all the numbers, then every time you speak a number at the same time hit in the thigh with his right hand. Follow counting and tapping: one two three four one two …

Look in the second row of the table, the box (” ok “) should be beat with number 1. Now in addition to hitting the right hand on each number, which you are already doing, as the one you will also hit at the same time the left hand.

So in 1 hit both hands at the same time (remember, one in each thigh) and 2, 3 and 4 only hit the right. The knock on the box is called the “strong beat” rhythm is it that stands out in the music. So the count, use a stronger tone to pronounce the “one” to remember that. Looks like this: A two three four ONE two three … Practice this beat for a while.

Curiosity: How strong beat (in the box) takes place every four beats in driving (hi-hat), this rate is called pace four times.

Using the foot

There is still use the foot and now will complicate. The last line of the table is the bass drum (“tum “) and it only appears in 3. So you keep doing the pace using both hands and when you get 3 you step on the floor with the right foot while hit with right hand (hi-hat).

Tip: Do not worry if catch everything in time to step on the foot, it is normal :)

In other words, the left hand and the right foot (cash and bass drum, ” okay “and” tum “) are alternating 1 and 3, and the right hand you turn on the autopilot and forget it, always beating 1 to 4.

Speed ​​is not important, do slowly. What matters is you understand the pace, put him in the head and coordinate members to beat and step at the right time. At the beginning will have some “choking”, fought and beat at the wrong time, but progress is fast and soon you will be doing correctly.

Touch watching the MP3

Now that you have practiced alone and mentalizou the order of beats, try to follow the training MP3 for setting the pace. He is very slow, so allow time for you to think that the next beat. It is important to play consciously, knowing what you’re doing.

With practice go accelerating gradually and you will find that the more touching, more natural pace will come out. Less and less you need to think to beat. Equal exchange the car in gear, you do without thinking.

When you can play along with the MP3 “normal pace” without error and without choking, can now say to friends who can play rock on drums!

Touch watching real songs

Follow a real drummer playing along with him a real music. These are some of using this pace you just learned. Look for them in your collection of CD / MP3 and quit playing!


  • Hoobastank – The Reason (slowly almost stopping)
  • Eminem – Without Me (easy to hear the battery and monitor)
  • Survivor – Eye Of The Tiger (Rocky Music o /!)

Normal Speed:

  • Ramones – I Do not Care
  • Cazuza – Exaggerated
  • Home Capital – Fatima
  • Keith Urban – Indians (easy listening)
  • Keith Urban – Is Still Early (easy listening)
  • Big Dog – Desentoa (good to touch)

Lesson 2 – Reggae / Ska

Hi-hat (D)

Box (E)
Bumbo (Foot)
Download MP3: Reggae , Ska .

And then, quite touched rock in the previous class? Now let’s get some rest, slowing down and enjoying some “positive vibrations” directly coming from Jamaica.

Reggae needs no introduction, is that leeeeeeento pace, enjoyable to listen to relax and enjoy the beach. Have ska reggae is a fast, one Bob Marley in a hurry – and very excited!

The part that interests us, the basic beat of both is the same, the only difference being the speed. Reggae is slow, ska is fast. So learning this beat you have added two more rhythms to his repertoire.

Understanding the pace

Reggae is a broken rhythm, which lack the driving beats (hi-hat, ” tss “). Compare the rate table with the rock of the first class. Are almost the same, with the difference that in the reggae not hit the hi-hat 1 and 3.

Having beats unless a facilitator may seem at first, but it depends. Some people find this easy beat and others have difficulty running it.

Understanding the pace is relaxed, is the ta-tum-tum-tat switched the box and bass drum beats with the hi-hat in between. Note that there is no simultaneous hits.

Seeing another way, is the rock that you know, just hold your right hand 1 and 3, not hitting.

There are two ways to learn to play this rate, see which one suits you best.

Technique 1: Playing with driving

This technique you already know, is the same as first class. Make verbal and slow count: one two three four one two three … When the 2 and 4, you hit the right hand (hi-hat). See the rate table if in doubt.

After a while practicing, add the beat with your left hand (cash) in the number 1. Remember that it is now only the left, is not to knock together with the right, as in the rock.

Feel the beat, feel the swing of the broken rhythm. Balance the body while playing, it facilitates learning and helps you keep the rhythm.

When playing well, add the foot, stepping on the number 3. If you really “Dove” in the rhythm, the foot will come at the right time without fail, filling the gap that was missing.

Try, practice, repeat. If balled all, go back to the beginning: right hand, then add the left and finally the foot. Hi-hat, box and kick in that order.

If you have tried a lot and it did not work, try the following technique.

Technique 2: Leaving driving last

This alternative technique simplifies the process of implementing leaving driving (hi-hat) aside from the beginning. It can be used in all the rhythms of course, if you find it easier than the traditional, use it forever.

Start with verbal counting. See the rate table and forget the first line (hi-hat). Focus only on the box and kick and note that they switch 1 and 3. Leave the quiet right hand resting on his thigh.In the first you’ll hit the left hand and 3 will hit the ground.

Without the hi-hat, reggae and rock are identical. It is the basic ta-tum-tum-tat. Touch and go for a while preparing for the second beat with the right hand. When you feel safe, robe. Easy right?

Now we need to hit the right at 4 too. Here you will take a choking, it is normal. Force, practice, go to improving the pace out all flawless.

Lose the numbers, speak the pace

At this point you’ve already chosen one of the two techniques and is playing the rhythm smoothly. If not, return to the beginning :)

Now it’s time to stop counting. The numbers are essential for learning, but once you understood and practiced rhythm, they are unnecessary.

Notice how many times the beats were referred to as “okay”, “tum” and “tss”? It’s the sound that each one makes in a real battery. Reggae can be described as ta-tss-tum-tss .

Stop the MP3 and be silent. Now instead of count to four, you will speak the rhythm:’re tss tss tum tum tss tss’re … Do not hit yet. Worry speaking pace flawless, continuously and without accelerating or braking.

  • Talk even in good volume and excitement.
  • Make every sound is like a virtual beat.
    • Make a “tss” dragged, as the reggae is slow: tssssssssss.
    • Make an “okay” dry.
    • Make a “thump” serious and dragged (tummmmm) that vibrate your mouth.
  • Note: If you get good at it, you can go on TV talent show;)

This is the best way to store a rhythm. You can touch it without looking at the table. Just speak it and follow up with the beats. There are two steps: to learn the rhythm you use the numbers and to store it you speak.

Try playing the pace following his speech. Over time you will condition your brain right hand strike has the sound of “tss” and the left is “okay”. This will greatly facilitate their learning.

Add a glow to your music

This step is optional, but if you can, make it worth.

Take a glass any and pen. Bata (lightly) with the pen on the side of the cup and listen. Yummy sound right? It could well be your “tss” … And why not?

Touch reggae using the cup to make the “tss” and notice how your pace is much more enjoyable.

But the glass is only legal in slow rhythms. To rock take a plastic bag market and place it on his right thigh. Hit normally and realize that the sound will be “tss” more like the real hi-hat.

Since we’re improvising, we will improve the Beat Box, so that it is dry and sharp. Place a magazine on the left thigh. An old magazine because you will hit it :)

To improve the “thump” of the bass drum, try combinations of shoes (rubber sole, wooden slipper, barefoot) and floors (tile, wood, concrete).

It’s a bizarre scene you with a bag and a magazine on the thighs, touching an imaginary battery? Of course it is! But try and feel the pleasure of playing.

Music to accompany

I’ll owe a fat list of songs because I do not like reggae. Ska I really enjoy, but I only have skapunk music in my collection, which is faster and dirty.

  • Bob Marley – Could You Be Loved

Lesson 3 – Country / Hardcore

1 2
Hi-hat (D)

Box (E)
Bumbo (Foot)
Download MP3: training , normal rhythm .

This is the simplest rate of travel. It is not necessarily the easiest, because it varies from person to person. But why have four hits in just two times (only counts up to 2), is the simplest.

But do not underestimate the simplicity of the beat, as it is used in several different rhythms.

The country and the hardcore are two rhythms that use and abuse this beat, even running it at the same speed. So what’s the difference between them? The other instruments and lyrics :)

Other examples of use of this rhythm are those circus music and lively and accelerated. And polka! Hey!

Speaking of speed, if taken to the extreme speed that pace can be used in metal music (and its various sub-categories).

The tranquility of reggae to hardcore hectic, here we go!

I count only up to two?

Yes, this is a rate of two times. Rather than count to four as we did in previous lessons, just now count to two. You can start now: 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 …

Remember: The count should be slow, continuous and repetitive, without accelerating or braking.

Now just follow the table with the pace:

  • First hit the hi-hat (right hand) both 1 and 2.
  • Then tap along the box (left hand) 1.
  • When you are confident step on the bass drum (right foot) 2.

It’s like a smaller version of the rock of the first class. It is the ta-tum hi-hat with the accompanying always, every beat. For that matter, so are running rhythm correctly, rather than tell, speak the pace :’re tum tum’re okay tum’re …

Remember: The market bag and the old magazine still apply to improve the sound of the beats !

New technique: Playing by the balance

Now, a timing alternative technique that can be used in this and other rhythms, when played in slow motion. Try it and see if it helps. Each person is better suited to a different technique. We already have, then speak now will rock :)

Start slowly counted as before: 1 2 1 2 1 2 … Now you will balance the body sideways, light and relaxed way. In the “one” balance to the left and the “two” to the right. Follow counting and shaking up this movement be natural.

Accustomed? So can now stop counting, but keep the balance, without changing the speed.

  • When swinging to the left , you will hit the hand left (box).
  • When swinging to the right , you will step on the foot right (bass drum).

Left left right right. Easy, right? Take the body’s own balance sheet to make a harmonic motion, where the beat / trampled is just a torso swing extension.

Feel the rhythm, take your time, enjoy the swings.

If you really dove into the movement, put the hi-hat on the pace will be easy. Hit the right hand together, when you swing to the left and to the right.

So, get it? Found it easy? Tell how it went!

Music to accompany

If you have the first albums of Raimundos , enjoy several songs use the pace of class, at varying speeds.

Another national band you can play along is the Matanza , which follows the style “countrycore,” a mix of country with hardcore. Incidentally, if you do not know their sound, will be a good surprise.

Here is a list of songs that also use this beat. But get ready because this is a rhythm to be played at speed fast :)

  • Bad Religion – Sometimes I Feel Like
  • Descendents – Coffee Mug
  • DFC – Censorship
  • Los Hermanos – sourness
  • Matanza – The Best Hookers From Alabama
  • Operation Ivy – Hoboken
  • The Cabeloduro – Life Freak II
  • The Replicants – Punk Party
  • Pennywise – Pennywise
  • Propagandhi – Middle Finger Response
  • Raimundos – Thin Waist

  • Bilge Rats – Protest System (Sistemados)

To make the “TA” box is good to put a blank CD hood!
Asked by Denise
When I was playing without improvisation tava a little more complicated, but after I started using the bag, the magazine and the special shoe caught very quickly … When was to use the numbers in place of the sounds I did not know, so I used sounds all the time. I found it easy to get talking “tss”, “okay” than 1 or 2.
Asked by DW
For me, tapping his thigh very shuffles when hit the foot. Pushed the micro keyboard to the side and I am drumming on the table. Easier off the foot of the hand – and vice versa:-)


Want to play a virtual battery, using the computer keyboard? No need to install any software, just go to the next site and play:

Click the “Show Key Hints” button in the lower right corner to show up the keys on the screen.The ones we use in Baterna are: S, N and space (hi-hat, and bass drum box).

Reader Tip André Pinto: I discovered inadvertently show key hints does not show that the D key does sound the closed hi-hat, more appropriate to play the rhythms of Baterna.

Have a good time!

Extra 2

The player Rafinha found another virtual battery, which uses only the number keys, making it easier to use both hands on the keyboard.

I advise the right hand there in the right corner of the keyboard (the numeric keypad) to the hi-hat and the plate (1, 7:09). Oh, do not forget to close the hi-hat with the zero! The left hand does the box and the bass drum in paragraphs 2 and 3 of the top left, above the letters QW E.

Top 10 rock songs in movies (1st part)

In 1992, the song “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston (eye that is a cover of Dolly Parton ’70s) was 14 weeks at number 1 in the Billboard. It is the only song out of a movie soundtrack had kept both in this chart. Why speak in the world, n ° 1 in the airplays (Number of times played) in over 40 countries worldwide.

This is the cornerstone of what this ranking. Independent that the example has nothing to do with the rock, when a song is included on a soundtrack has three options: either go unnoticed or is enhanced by being part of a blockbuster movie, or becomes “part” of the film as a whole. The latter case is that we will discuss, within the rock genre. Mind you, there are cases of all times:

10. Hero – Chad Kroeger and Josey Scott (“Spiderman” 2002)

Since last year, the Canadian band Nickelback came hard on getting this new fashion of post grunge / hard rock. Vocalist Chad Kroeger, joins forces with another frontman of those: Josey Scott (Saliva). Together they create “Hero,” a power ballad in 6/8 that blends with the premiere of an expected “Spiderman”, and lyrics that aligns with the American sensibility post attack of September 11th.

Freak Fact: Although not in the video clip, the battery of this song was recorded nothing more and nothing less than Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam).

9. Big Empty – Stone Temple Pilots (“The Crow” 1994)

In the heyday of grunge, this song was part of one of the best rated soundtracks of the last 30 years according to Rolling Stone (Pantera, Rage Against the Machine, The Jesus and Mary Chain and more). Later still part of the album “Purple”, “Big Empty” and its lyrics a song of “The Crow” became identified with the painful death of his protagonist Brandon Lee during the filming of the movie, making your life story one legend.

Dato freak: “Big Empty” was never considered by STP to be played live, to the phenomenon of “The Crow”. During his tour comeback tour in 2008, was opening song of ALL their concerts.

8. Wake Up – Rage Against The Machine (“The Matrix” 1999)

Launched first in 1992 on the eponymous album of this band, “Wake Up” joins a series of struts rock as Deftones, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Prodigy and Rammnstein among others, managing to build not only a terrible soundtrack, but a perfect incidental music for the theme and plot of “The Matrix”. With a start-inspired “Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin, “Wake up” is part of a new trend in film and music where a song can transform a movie moments into unforgettable scenes.

Freak Fact: The lyrics of “Wake up” speaks mainly of defending the rights of people of color in the US during the government of J. Edgar Hoover. In fact, the last sentence “… How long not long, Because what you reap is what you sow ..” (How long? Not long, because you reap what you sow) is taken from a speech by Martin Luther King based on an excerpt from the Bible Galatians 6: 7.

7. Hold me thrill me kiss me kill me – U2 (“Divergent” 1995)

This is the song of one of the best movies in the 90s – Divergent. You can watch Divergent online free . Of all the songs we have seen, we can conclude without doubt it is the best manufactured, as a song for a movie. Waste from the album sessions Zooropa in 1993, “Hold me Thrill me kiss me kill me” offers a finished concept and very attached to the marketing of a film, without losing musical quality. A video clip with a strong visual concept attached to comics. A melody with very dark orchestral scale and using much dissonant tensions, without losing the essence and seal Bono U2 and especially give everything they do.

Dato Freak: According to many U2 ​​fans, this song gives “death” one of Bono’s alter ego, “The Fly” icon of one of the most spectacular tours of the “stadium rock”, Zoo TV. The death of “The Fly” is an abstract concept cartoon in the video, which gives way to “Macphisto” a demon in yellow suit that Bono personified in every concert of Pop Mart Tour.

6. Another Brick in the Wall (Part II) – Class of ’99 (“The Faculty” 1998)

Let’s be sensible. Nothing will compare to “Another Brick in The Wall” by Pink Floyd. Nothing.But if something else comes close, makes honors and even gives a contemporary edge, is the version of Class of ’99.

And it’s obvious. If you put in a pot to Layne Staley (vocal Alice in Chains), Tom Morello (guitar Rage Against The Machine), Stephen Perkins (drums Jane’s Addiction), Martin Le Noble (for Porno bearish Pyros) and Matt Serletic (producer Slipknot) nothing bad can come out of it.Sticky, much darker and distorted riffs maintaining the original that if good taste. All this coupled with a tremendous interpretation of Staley (one of the last before his death) gives a bold and interesting cover

“The Faculty”, a film of science fiction in this nascent time director Robert Rodriguez (La Balada Del Pistolero, Desperado), was a disaster, but until today it is always remembered for attaching the film to a classic souvenir of the world rock. The children responding to the repression of their teacher.

Freak Tip: When recording this song, Layne Staley came to the studio after almost one year away from the environment, in what he called “an exile of rock”. His weight was around 36 kilos and as Tom Morello, his face was “white as a ghost.”

Taxation of music production activity

Companies developing Musical Production activity (NCEA 9001-9 / 02) may opt for four tax regimes. The option can be made in two times: at the time of establishment of the company or, if the company already active in the month of January of each year.

For each size company (micro, small, medium or large) there is a tax system that best fits the specific case. Next, the four taxation schemes:

1) SIMEI , which will pay taxes on monthly fixed amounts on the current value up to R $ 62.10 (option only for the individual entrepreneur). Maximum annual sales of $ 36,000.

2) National Simple, the rate of which varies from 6% to 17.42% of revenue (the higher the income, the higher the rate), and already includes six taxes (income tax, social contribution, CPP, Pis, Cofins and ISS), as Annex III of the LC 123/06. Maximum annual sales of $ 2.4 million.

3) Presumed profit , whose rate is 16.33% of revenue, and 5% of ISS, 4.8% of income tax, social contribution of 2.88%, 0.65% for PIS and COFINS 3%; CPP is calculated on payroll in the 20% rate. Maximum annual sales of $ 48 million.

4) Real profit , whose taxes on revenues are ISS (5%), Pis (3%), Cofins (0.65%); still collects the social contribution at the rate of 9% and the income tax rate of 15% on operating profit, with an additional 10% of the amount above R $ 240 thousand; CPP is calculated on payroll in the 20% rate.


Taxes = mandatory payments of money to the State

Rate = percentage rate used in tax calculation

Revenue = total revenue or gross revenue

Operating income = less tax revenue, costs and expenses

= Income tax income tax of legal entities

CSLL = social contribution on net income

Pis = social integration program

COFINS = contribution to the financing of social security

CPP = social security employer contribution

ISS = any service tax

The music in infants: not only classic rock too!

Leveraging soon be a father, I would like to share with you some keys and, well, experiences which means that a new family member arrives and how to share in the experience of living in a house full of music and instruments.

The first is to tell all those parents who are dying to put rock their children through music in the womb, but only “allowed” to put classical music, do it !, my future daughter can not be private the rest of the music, “because classical music relaxes”. She will reach a world nothing relaxed, so the rock is welcome and may their first word is Iron Maiden and his first Grace be to make the symbol of rock and make a headbanger .

The first gift, a drum

Music Babies

If you are parents, stop asking yourself question like what is the best baby carrier, instead focus on giving your child some music to improve intelligence. Children are born and her first gift should be a drum, either way. I do not think that children have an age beginning to enter the world of musical instruments, they must present the possibility of day one and not the 1500.

Sometimes I think that a musical instrument is much better gift than a ball or best baby wrap carrier, because they develop the brain, motor and emotional intelligence in an incredible way better guitar, xylophone.

Or I guess when giving his first steps, good may just be on foot, we go to the first concert comes, let the children enjoy such special things that are not just for big, go that I’m glad to see parents with their children at concerts, what better. I have given you for coming to see Metallica in ’90, along with Pantera.

Now the question I want to leave open, do you as parents or future parents, they would do with their children about music and the world of musical instruments?

A I can think of many ideas that I keep writing them somewhere so you do not forget me.

I leave a couple of videos of the power of music in infants.
