The Nature of Sound, part 4 in this music theory series.
In this episode, we’ll explore timbre a little more along with the 8 factors affecting an instrument’s sound quality that allow us to identify that instrument. We will also cover vibrato, duration, and density and I’ll even give you a link where you can download my FREE, 221-page book on sightreading rhythms where I discuss the 43 essential rhythmic subdivisions you need to know to be able to read about 99% of the music out there.
Let’s begin our discussion by continuing with the timbre.
Music tracks featured in this episode are from Otmaro Ruiz’ album, “Sojourn”, and is available at this link.
