Accompaniment
ACCOMPANIMENT is the musical parts which provide the rhythmic and/or harmonic support for the melody or main themes of a song or instrumental piece. There are many different styles and types of accompaniment in different genres and styles of music. In homophonic music , the main accompaniment approach used in popular music , a clear vocal melody is supported by subordinate chords . In popular music and traditional music , the accompaniment parts typically provide the "beat" for the music and outline the chord progression of the song or instrumental piece. The accompaniment for a vocal melody or instrumental solo can be played by a single musician playing an instrument such as piano , pipe organ , or guitar

Acoustic Guitar
An ACOUSTIC GUITAR is a guitar that produces sound acoustically—by transmitting the vibration of the strings to the air—as opposed to relying on electronic amplification (see electric guitar ). The sound waves from the strings of an acoustic guitar resonate through the guitar's body, creating sound. This typically involves the use of a sound board and a sound box to strengthen the vibrations of the strings. The main source of sound in an acoustic guitar is the string, which is plucked or strummed with the finger or with a pick . The string vibrates at a necessary frequency and also creates many harmonics at various different frequencies. The frequencies produced can depend on string length, mass, and tension. The string causes the soundboard and sound box to vibrate, and as these have their own resonances at certain frequencies, they amplify some string harmonics more strongly than others, hence affecting the timbre produced by the instrument

Rhythm Section
A RHYTHM SECTION (also called a backup band ) is a group of musicians within a music ensemble or band who provide the underlying rhythm and pulse of the accompaniment, providing a rhythmic reference and "beat" for the rest of the band. Many of the rhythm section instruments, such as keyboard instruments and guitars , are also used to play the chord progression upon which the song is based. The bass instrument (either double bass or electric bass , or another low-register instrument, such as synth bass , depending on the group and its style of music) plays the low-pitched bassline that supports the chord progression, typically by emphasizing the roots of the chords (and to a lesser degree the fifths and thirds of the chords). The term is common in modern small musical ensembles , such as bands that play jazz , country , blues , and rock

Electric Piano
An ELECTRIC PIANO is an electric musical instrument which produces sounds when a performer presses the keys of the piano -style musical keyboard . Pressing keys causes mechanical hammers to strike metal strings, metal reeds or wire tines, leading to vibrations which are converted into electrical signals by magnetic pickups , which are then connected to an instrument amplifier and loudspeaker to make a sound loud enough for the performer and audience to hear. Unlike a synthesizer , the electric piano is not an electronic instrument . Instead, it is an electro-mechanical instrument. Some early electric pianos used lengths of wire to produce the tone, like a traditional piano. Smaller electric pianos used short slivers of steel to produce the tone. The earliest electric pianos were invented in the late 1920s; the 1929 Neo-Bechstein electric grand piano was among the first. Probably the earliest stringless model was Lloyd Loar 's Vivi-Tone Clavier

Concept Album
A CONCEPT ALBUM is an album in which its tracks hold a larger purpose or meaning collectively than they do individually. This is typically achieved through a single central narrative or theme, which can be instrumental, compositional, or lyrical. Sometimes the term is referenced to albums considered to be of "uniform excellence" rather than an LP with an explicit musical or lyrical motif. The exact criterion for a "concept album" varies, with no discernible consensus. The format originates with folk singer Woody Guthrie 's Dust Bowl Ballads (1940) and subsequently popularized by traditional pop singer Frank Sinatra
Frank Sinatra
's 1940s–50s string of albums, but the term is more often associated with rock music . In the 1960s, several well-regarded concept albums were released by various rock bands, which eventually led to the invention of progressive rock and the rock opera

Cover Tune
In popular music , a COVER VERSION or COVER SONG, or simply COVER, is a new performance or recording of a previously recorded, commercially released song by someone other than the original artist or composer. Before the onset of rock 'n' roll in the 1950s, songs were published and several records of a song might be brought out by singers of the day, each giving it their individual treatment. Cover versions could also be released as an effort to revive the song's popularity among younger generations of listeners after the popularity of the original version has long since declined over the years

Upright Bass
The DOUBLE BASS, or simply the BASS (and numerous other names ), is the largest and lowest-pitched bowed string instrument in the modern symphony orchestra . It is a transposing instrument and is typically notated one octave higher than sounding to avoid excessive ledger lines below the staff. The double bass is the only modern bowed string instrument that is tuned in fourths (like a viol ), rather than fifths, with strings usually tuned to E1, A1, D2 and G2 . The instrument's exact lineage is still a matter of some debate, with scholars divided on whether the bass is derived from the viol or the violin family . The double bass is a standard member of the orchestra's string section , as well as the concert band , and is featured in concertos , solo and chamber music in Western classical music

In unaccompanied solo performance, basslines may simply be played in the lower register of any instrument such as guitar or piano while melody and/or further accompaniment is provided in the middle or upper register. In solo music for piano and pipe organ, these instruments have an excellent lower register that can be used to play a deep bassline. On organs, the bass line is typically played using the pedal keyboard and massive 16' and 32' bass pipes
