“I Like It”: The intro here begins with a two-bar fade-in of non-loop material — yet even with these two bars, they still decide to keep the whole intro to a tidy eight bars. There’s a nice little post-verse thingy after the second verse. You can spot it by its chromatic walk-down piano motif, four quarter notes a step. This motif comes back for another post-verse that’s simply the title refrain a bunch, and then a half-chorus. Pretty inventive since half-choruses are rare, but here it’s easy to do as the chorus was already written in two parts!

Slap sounds are played similarly to a tone. Put your hand on the edge of the drum, but instead of playing with a flat hand, you curve your fingers lightly. The contact area is limited to the edge of the palm and the fingertips. The other difference is that your hands rebound immediately after a strike, so the contact time with the skin is as short as possible. Slap tones produce more of a ‘crack’ and a bright sound, but you’ll also notice a little bass resonance. Your hand should bounce off the drumhead so that the fingertip pads flick quite sharply on and off the surface with a slap. The pocket of space under the palm gives it a hollow sound.

Brown even had to record a new song under a completely different, fake name — Nat Kendrick and the Swans’ “Mashed Potatoes,” for a different label entirely — just to get Nathan to reconsider.

Soundfly’s six-week beginner harmony course, Unlocking the Emotional Power of Chords, will show you how to craft compelling chord progressions in your music. We’ll analyze the chords used in music from across the contemporary landscape, and equip you to use them in your own productions and compositions. You’ll be challenged to write your own mood-setting music by creating tracks for topliners, TV ads, film trailers, and more, and get personalized weekly feedback on your work from an expert mentor. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to harness more interesting chord progressions to provoke powerful emotional reactions in your listeners.

The microphone that recorded my clapping hands is mimicking the action of our ears, registering the peaks and troughs through a physical diaphragm and converting these movements into an electrical signal. (*By the way, we have a whole article about how microphones work!)

Farina and Farina Alto serve food you can eat and music you can bob your head to. Though gourmet brick oven pizza may not be a novel concept, Farina executes it flawlessly. Enjoy a bianca pizza and homemade piñon-laced meatballs any night of the week here, while listening to your favorite Radiohead song or classical concerto from Chopin. This place is open until 10pm most nights (which is “late” in NM), so when you’re looking for tunes and a great late night snack, Farina’s is a godsend.
