Garage Rock
GARAGE ROCK (sometimes called \'60S PUNK or GARAGE PUNK) is a raw and energetic style of rock and roll that flourished in the mid-1960s, most notably in the United States
United States
and Canada
Canada
. The style is characterized by basic chord structures played on electric guitars and other instruments , sometimes distorted through a fuzzbox , as well as often unsophisticated and occasionally aggressive lyrics and delivery. The term "garage rock" derives from the perception that groups were often made up of young amateurs who rehearsed in the family garage, although many were professional. In the US and Canada, surf rock —and later the Beatles and other beat groups of the British Invasion —motivated thousands of young people to form bands between 1963 and 1968. Hundreds of acts produced regional hits, and some had national hits

Harmonica
The HARMONICA, also known as a FRENCH HARP or MOUTH ORGAN , is a free reed wind instrument used worldwide in many musical genres, notably in blues , American folk music , classical music , jazz , country , and rock and roll . There are many types of harmonica, including diatonic, chromatic, tremolo, octave, orchestral, and bass versions. A harmonica is played by using the mouth (lips and tongue) to direct air into or out of one or more holes along a mouthpiece. Behind each hole is a chamber containing at least one reed . A harmonica reed is a flat elongated spring typically made of brass , stainless steel , or bronze , which is secured at one end over a slot that serves as an airway. When the free end is made to vibrate by the player's air, it alternately blocks and unblocks the airway to produce sound. Reeds are pre-tuned to individual pitches. Tuning may involve changing a reeds length, the weight near its free end, or the stiffness near its fixed end

Bass Guitar
The BASS GUITAR (also called ELECTRIC BASS, or simply BASS) is a stringed instrument played primarily with the fingers or thumb, by plucking, slapping , popping, strumming, tapping, thumping, or picking with a plectrum , often known as a pick. The bass guitar is similar in appearance and construction to an electric guitar , but with a longer neck and scale length , and four to six strings or courses . The four-string bass, by far the most common, is usually tuned the same as the double bass , which corresponds to pitches one octave lower than the four lowest pitched strings of a guitar (E, A, D, and G). The bass guitar is a transposing instrument , as it is notated in bass clef an octave higher than it sounds (as is the double bass) to avoid excessive ledger lines . Like the electric guitar, the bass guitar has pickups and needs to be connected to an amplifier and speaker , which makes a sound loud enough to hear

Musical Instrument
A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT is an instrument created or adapted to make musical sounds . In principle, any object that produces sound can be considered a musical instrument—it is through purpose that the object becomes a musical instrument. The history of musical instruments dates to the beginnings of human culture. Early musical instruments may have been used for ritual, such as a trumpet to signal success on the hunt, or a drum in a religious ceremony. Cultures eventually developed composition and performance of melodies for entertainment. Musical instruments evolved in step with changing applications. The date and origin of the first device considered a musical instrument is disputed. The oldest object that some scholars refer to as a musical instrument, a simple flute , dates back as far as 67,000 years

Distortion (music)
DISTORTION and OVERDRIVE are forms of audio signal processing used to alter the sound of amplified electric musical instruments, usually by increasing their gain , producing a "fuzzy", "growling", or "gritty" tone. Distortion is most commonly used with the electric guitar , but may also be used with other electric instruments such as bass guitar , electric piano , and Hammond organ
Hammond organ
. Guitarists playing electric blues originally obtained an overdriven sound by turning up their vacuum tube -powered guitar amplifiers to high volumes, which caused the signal to get distorted . While overdriven tube amps are still used to obtain overdrive in the 2010s, especially in genres like blues and rockabilly , a number of other ways to produce distortion have been developed since the 1960s, such as distortion effect pedals

Chord (music)
A CHORD, in music , is any harmonic set of pitches consisting of two or more (usually three or more) notes (also called "pitches") that are heard as if sounding simultaneously . (For many practical and theoretical purposes, arpeggios and broken chords, or sequences of chord tones , may also be considered as chords.) Chords and sequences of chords are frequently used in modern West African and Oceanic music, Western classical music, and Western popular music ; yet, they are absent from the music of many other parts of the world. In tonal Western classical music (music with a tonic key or "home key"), the most frequently encountered chords are triads, so called because they consist of three distinct notes: the root note, and Intervals of a third and a fifth above the root note. Other chords with more than three notes include added tone chords , extended chords and tone clusters , which are used in contemporary classical music , jazz and other genres

Electric Guitar
An ELECTRIC GUITAR is a fretted stringed instrument with a neck and body that uses a pickup to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical signals. The vibration occurs when a guitarist strums , plucks or fingerpicks the strings. It is sensed by a pickup , most commonly by a magnetic pickup that uses the principle of direct electromagnetic induction . The signal generated by an electric guitar is too weak to drive a loudspeaker , so it is plugged into a guitar amplifier before being sent to a loudspeaker, which makes a sound loud enough to hear. The output of an electric guitar is an electric signal, and the signal can easily be altered by electronic circuits to add "color" to the sound or change the sound. Often the signal is modified using effects such as reverb and distortion and "overdrive" , with the growling sound of the latter being a key element of the sound of the electric guitar as it is used in blues and rock music
