1. Relax with Favorite Songs

Again saturate the same endless work? Or want to relax while lazing on a holiday? You can take advantage of your leisure time by listening to your favorite songs. Well, when you have plenty of free time, you can create playlists or so-called “playlists” to accompany you in different activities. Can be accompanied by snacks of cassava chips or potato chips and fresh drinks of course

2. Songs to Accompany When Traveling
For you who love to walk, must often deh listen to the song to drive saturation on the way. If you bring your own vehicle, just turn on the radio in the car or play a cassette / cd / memory that contains your favorite songs. If I like that everywhere often use public transportation (bus / taxi / train / plane), live listen to music via mobile only.

The right track to accompany my journey is usually the cover songs of a well-known song. There are some cover song singers I like, like Jason Chen, Kurt Hugo Schneider, Megan Nicole, and many more.

3. Music Aiding Concentrations Learning
I have a strange habit when studying, which must be really accompanied by music. Yes, usually the other people learn to be with calm, well I even the opposite. I’ve read an article on the internet, which states that listening to music while studying can increase one’s concentration level.

Of course the music is not music that is noisy and deafening. The usual music to accompany me while studying is piano instrumental music, cello, violin, or guitar. And if you want to try it, please listen to the works from Yiruma, The Piano Guys, and Depapepe.

History and Development of Blues Music

The term blues officially used in 1910. Blues is a flow of vocal music and instrumental originating from the United States (US). The blues name is born from the blue term connoted with feeling frustrated and melancholy. The blues music departs from the spiritual and praise music that emerged from the community of former African slaves in the US. And began to grow rapidly in the 19th century AD the US.

According to the authors, scientists and researchers at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York, Sylviane Diouf, Blues has a relationship with the Muslim community tradition in West Africa. To prove the link between American Blues music and Muslim traditions, Diouf plays two recordings. The first one he presented to the public who was present in a room of Harvard University was the call to prayer (call for Muslims to perform the prayer service). After that, Diouf turned Levee Camp Holler.

The second record is an old Blues song that first appeared in the Mississippi Delta about 100 years ago. Levee Camp Holler is not a fairly regular blues song. The song was created by the black Muslim community of West African origin who worked in post-Civil War America. Levee Camp Holler’s lyrics emphasize words that sounded vibrating. According Diouf, the nasal style between the songBlues Levee Cam Holler-like adzan is also evidence of a link between the two.

Professor of Ethnomusicology from the University of Mainz, Germany, named Prof. Gehard Kubik also wrote a book about Blues music relations with Islamic civilization in West Africa titled Africa and the Blues, published by University Press of Mississippi in 1999. Cubic prove has proved it. “The vocal style of most Blues singers uses melisma, wavy intonation. Such vocal style is a relic of the West African community that has been in contact with the Islamic world since the 7th and 8th centuries, “he said. Melisma uses many tones in a syllable.


The previous blues musicians often wear banjo, and along with the development of technology in musical instruments, blues musicians began to use guitar music. Blues music continues to grow. Even in every area of ​​the United States gave birth to different blues music colors like Chicago Blues (Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor), Delta Blues (Robert Lockwood jr), East Cost Blues (John Jackson) and Texas Blues (Mike Morgan & The Crawl).

Then in the early decade of the 60s blues music in America declined in popularity, so American record companies would not sign them. So the blues bands from England then filled the void. British musicians such as The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, John Mayal and Bluesbreaker have finally given a new atmosphere for American blues musicians.

Modern electric blues are the most popular blues subgenre to date. Of the genre, born dozens of blues music figures such as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hocker, Jhony Winter, Koko Taylor, Robert Cray, Taj Mahal, Dave Hole, Tinsley Ellis Freddie King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Guitarist Jimi Hendrix also included a blues musician who influenced many other musicians. With his new guitar playing technique, Jimi became a pioneer in blues music dominated by an extremely impressive electric sound, which then attracted the attention of other guitarists to further explore the sound.Jimi also famous by number Blues like red house and voodoo child. After the era of the emergence of Jimi Hendrix, many emerging blues rock musicians such as the late Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tinsley Ellis, Taj Mahal and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Music Funk

Funk is a stream of music that contains elements of African-American dance music. Generally funk music can be recognized by rhythms that are often cut short, sharp rhythm guitar sounds, dominant percussion, strong jazz influences, African-influenced rhythms of music, and the joyful impression found on hearing it. Root funk can be traced to rhythm and blues types from the Louisiana region in the 1960s. This music stream is closely related to soul music as well as other types of derivative music such as P-Funk and Funk Rock.
“Deviant art”

If talking about Funk or Funk music is not afdol if I’m not associated with James Brown, soul musician filled with hyperbolic rada epithets like The Prime Minister of Soul, President of Funk to The Godfather of Soul and whatever.
Funk is loaded with syncope.Also a distinctive bass line.Rhythm guitar sharp as aksentuasi.Lalu horn section blowing section, upbeat and danceable.
In the late ’60s into the 1970s, Funk’s music had a lot of sympathy with jazz. Especially when Miles Davis absorbed the Funk rhythm in his jazz rock works, followed by a series of Miles Davis alumni such as Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams, George Duke, Eddie Harris, Ramsey Lewis, Stanley Clarke and many others ……… Similarly Jimi Hendrix & The Experience who initiated Funk Rock. Like explorations by drummer Buddy Miles.

In the era of the 70s Funk growing rapidly hingg the emergence of outbreak disco diseantero universe.
Not a few funk-based groups are emerging, such as Earth Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, Graham Central Station, Commodores, The Bar-Kays, Con Funk Shun, Kool & The Gang, The Brothers Johnson, War and still a long line longer including Stevie The genial Wonder.
In the Musical Box R & B and Soul Tuesday 12 September 2006, discussing funk music ….. accompanied by some of James Brown’s funk repertoires, Graham Central Station, The Bar-Kays, Parliament Funkadelic, Prince & The Revoiution etc.

Not to be missed Funk bands filled with youthful spirits like Red Hot Chili Peppers (better known as RHCP) is a California-based rock music group founded by vocalist Anthony Kiedis, bassist Michael Balzary (known as Flea), late lead guitarist Hillel Slovak, vocalist And drummer ‘Cho’ Laws, and drummer Jack Irons in 1983.

Peligro, Arik Marshall, Jesse Tobias, and Dave Navarro.
RHCP has released nine studio albums, nine # 1 modern rock hits, and has sold nearly 50 million albums in the world (37 million sold for the three albums Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Californication and By the Way).

Trick playing Funk music
Learning variations of the sixteenth and triplet notes, then learning ghost note strumming, I’m not a funk player but as far as I’m concerned about funk hal2 above pretty good essence in funk. For chords that used funk music most are dominant chord2, can dominant 7th, or 9th dominant. etc. Progress. It’s often funk that one chord progression is fixed in one chord, but there are also some variations, but usually not too complicated. Funk is more to rhythmic and groove, and a clear ghost note is very essential in funk music. For sound, funk more often use sound clean or light overdrive. To flatten the strumming volume you can also add compressor effect. For refrensi band try listening james brown, or tower of power, or band2 called ama vorpobello.

About Hip-Hop, A Music and Cultural Flow

The point is, “Hip-Hop is something we live, Rap is something we do”. Or it can be said that Hip-Hop is a culture or culture, while Rap is a job. Thus, the word came from “rapper”, no word “hip-hopper” or “pe-hip-hop”. To know and deeper appreciation of Rap Music, of course we must know more about Hip-Hop Culture itself. It would be better if we start by getting to know the history of Hip-Hop culture.

Hip-Hop culture itself has existed since the 70s in the United States. At that time, DJ from Jamaica, namely DJ Kool Herc who held a block party event in some housing every night. It is intended to eliminate fatigue after the move, where the DJ is playing jazz, soul or funk songs. This Hip-Hop culture has started to lead as a movement when a student named Kevin Donovan was commissioned by the United Nations to leave for Africa. There, Kevin studied the meaning of unity of the Zulu chief. It also encouraged him to form a movement called Universal Zulu Nation.

Gradually, Hip-Hop culture is not only a culture, but a movement of consciousness. More hip-hop activists are emerging from various elements, be it rapper, beatboxer, DJ, breakdancer, adan also other lovers. But still in America, there is still a commotion between certain races or groups. This also prompted the hip-hop activists to form a declaration that would become one of the “scriptures” for today’s hip-hop actors. The declaration signed by hip-hop activists and witnessed by UN and UNESCO delegates is called “Hip-Hop Declaration Of Peace”.

This declaration has 18 points, and from those points, I will take the most important points (which I concise):
1. Hip-Hop is a medium of expression, and can be done by being a rapper / MC, can with breakdance, can be a DJ or beatboxer, and can also donate other works, such as writing for knowledge, clothes / fashion, And entrepreneurship related to the streets (Point 1).

2. Hip Hop is respecting human dignity, without discrimination, or essentially protecting the development of human life, such as respecting the prevailing laws or customs, respecting institutions, and abstaining from violence (Points 2, 3, 12, 13) .

3. Hip-Hop appreciates the nature in which we live, our own Earth (Points 14, 15).

4. Hip-Hop should also have a message to know yourself and provide a good education, and also teach about respect (Points 5 and 17).

5. No one can express himself as a “pioneer” or “legend” hip-hop other than he has contributed and given credibility. (Point 16).

6. Hip-Hop is not seen from the color of skin, tribe, country, religion, work, culture or language. Because, hip-hop is a culture that teaches collective consciousness (Points 10 and 11).

If we return to Rap Music, of course as part of Hip-Hop culture, of course Rap music must adjust the above points. This means that Rap music appreciates human dignity, has a message to know oneself, respect institutions, and no one can make himself as number one if it has not contributed and credibiltas, and can be done by all circles, without any particular group. So, from the declaration, it can be concluded that essentially, Rap Music must indeed be educative, with messages that can be captured by everyone, and can be delivered in their own way. In addition, the music Rap emang must be able to touch all the peoples in the community, because this music is also inspired from the life of the street that emphasizes the struggle of life.

History of Jazz music

Jazz is a type of music that grows from the incorporation of blues, ragtime, and European music, especially band music. Some of the jazz subgenres are Dixieland, swing, bebop, hard bop, cool jazz, free jazz, jazz fusion, smooth jazz, and CafJazz.Jazz is a music stream originating in the United States in the early 20th century with roots of African music And Europe.Music jazz using many instruments of guitar, trombone, piano, trumpet, and saxophone. One of the most important elements in jazz is syncopation. The word “jazz” comes from a vulgar term used for sexual acts. Some rhythms in jazz have been associated with brothels and women with poor reputations. In the journey then, jazz eventually became a form of music art, both in certain composition and improvisation, which reflects the melodies spontaneously. Jazz musicians usually express their feelings that are not easily explained, because this music must be felt in the heart. “If you ask, you’ll never know” according to Louis Armstrong.

The jazz legend began in New Orleans and flourished into the Mississippi River, Memphis, St. Louis, and finally Chicago. Of course jazz is influenced by music in New Orleans, tribal drums of Africa and the structure of European music. The background of jazz can not be separated from the fact that jazz is influenced by various music such as spiritual music, cakewalks, ragtime and blues. One jazz legend is believed that around 1891, the owner of a hairstyle in New Orleans named Buddy Bolden blew his cornet and it was then that jazz music began as a new breakthrough in the music world. Half a century later, jazz music in America contributed a lot to the world of music, studied at university, and eventually became a serious and calculated musical flow.

Jazz music as a popular art began to spread to almost all American societies in the 1920s (known as Jazz Age). Jazz was rife in the swing era in the late 1930s, and reached its peak in the late 1950s as a modern jazz. In the early 20s and 30s, “jazz” has become a commonly known word.
The influence and development of blues music can not be abandoned when discussing jazz music in the early years of its development. The expression that radiates when playing the blues music fits perfectly with the style of jazz music. The ability to play blues music becomes standard for all jazz musicians, especially for use in improvisation and hourly sessions. Blues own music, which comes from the South, has a very wide history. Blues musicians usually use guitars, pianos, harmonica, or play together in groups that play homemade musical instruments.
The history and development of jazz music, divided into several phases / eras. From the Dixieland and Ragtime phases at the beginning, then the swing and bigband era (1930-1940), bebop era (mid 1940), jazz rock (fifty-fifties) and the latest developments that gave birth to phases and New era such as acid jazz, jazz funk, cross music and so on. Dixieland and Ragtime Era

Ragtime is unique because it does not include improvisation and blues. This is an influence of the jazz origin form, lasting for about the first 15 years of the 20th century. Generally a music for piano that has been written as a whole can be performed by an orchestra and represents a mixture of classical influences and marching bands. Try listening to music from Scott Joplin to taste ragtime.

Dixieland is a style that can be regarded as a variant of jazz classics and jazz of New Orleans. The original roots of dixieland as a musical form sourced from the Chicago music scene in the 1920s. Pioneers of dixieland style include guitarist Eddie Condon, saxophonist Bud Freeman, and Jimmy McPartland’s trumpeter.

Dixieland style involves a collective improvisation in the first chorus, with the musicians entering solo together riffing of an inflatable instrument, followed by a closing ensemble, usually a drummer playing a 4-bar tag ending by the entire band. Unlike other jazz styles, the set of songs for dixieland musicians is somewhat limited, but offers endless variations in sound models, developed around the 1910s.

Along with the development of ragtime, New Orleans jazz appeared in the jazz scene for the first two decades of the 20th century. Considered the first jazz style, from 1895 to Buddy Bolden, Kid Ory and Jelly Roll Morton in Storyville, New Orleans, to Approaching 1917. New Orleans jazz has become unfit for marching brass bands. There was the first New Orleans jazz documentation from The Original Dixieland Jass Band in 1917 to the 1920s, when the recording technology had evolved.

This music develops including trumpet players and cornets, such as Joe Oliver and Louis Armstrong, featured

Development of Heavy Metal Music

In everyday life we ​​must be familiar with the word music. Music is an idea of ​​thoughts, ideas, works of art, and a container for expressing emotions through notes created from various instruments and objects that produce sounds and melodies. Music itself developed with various types in various countries and more diverse until now. Genres of music that we usually know in the community include jazz, blues, rock, metal, pop, and many music genres are very diverse.

In the development of music in the year 1960-1970 emerged a genre of music called heavy metal. The name heavy metal itself was inspired and taken from a song from a hard rock band called Steppenwolf with the title song Born To Be Wild which in some lyrics there is the word heavy metal. The term heavy metal was not particularly well known in the 1960s until the 1970s was introduced by a British band called Black Sabbath. The heavy metal music itself can be recognized by the distinguishing features of a very strong guitar and the taps on all the instruments are relatively fast. The lyrics themselves refer to the theme of masculinity and masculinity. Of all the musical genres, heavy metal is one of the root genres of music of many genres of music that we know today.

In the development of the first heavy metal music that is in the 1970s can still be found elements of thick blues music. Influential bands in these years include Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Deep Purple. They are the founding legends of this genre for the first time. In its development appeared heavy metal music that is more violent and violent with more dominant guitar distortion and loss of elements of blues music in it and more melodis and harmonics. The band that pioneered was Judas Priest, a British band. New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) is a new term that appears in the UK with pioneering bands like Motorhead, Venom, Iron Maiden, Saxon, and Diamond Head.

The subsequent development of the 1980s was influenced by NWOBHM that mixed heavy metal music with pop that produced a sub genre called glam metal. This innovation affected the existence of heavy metal music itself. Thanks to this combination of heavy metal music easily and quickly spread throughout the world. In this year heavy metal music is increasingly popular and much loved by teenagers around the world.

In the 1990s heavy metal music grew with the birth of many sub-genres which is the final stage of metamorphosis of the development of metal music that we currently know. In this period heavy metal music more emphasis on the harder elements in the lyrics and character of the vocalist. Some sub genres of heavy metal are thrash metal, death metal, black metal, power metal, alternative metal, grunge, and many other sub genres. This period is better known as The Age Of Underground Metal.

In the sub-genre thrash metal is known a term “The Big Four of Thrash”. This term is an expression intended for the musical legends of the founders of this genre, they are Metalica, Anthrax, Slayer, and Megadeth. This sub-genre has a very fast tempo feature in almost all of its musical instruments. Downstroke game on the guitar is very visible to make this music much-loved by all circles in his time to this day. Many bands have developed this type of music and popularized it worldwide as in South America pioneered by the Sepultura band. In Europe was introduced by the band Kreator and Destruction.

Other sub genres are death metal and black metal. The difference between these two types of music lies in the types of vocal characters and themes and lyrics on each song. Death metal leads to the theme of death, war, murder, and sadism. While black metal itself is more directed to the theme of satanism, hell, and darkness. This type of music develops in various countries in Europe such as Finland, Norway, Scandinavia, and Sweden. The bands that developed this music include Entombed, Dismember, Unleashed, At The Gates, Venom, Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, and Bathory.

Power metal is a sub-genre of heavy metal music that is characterized by high-pitched vocal characters and fast drumming with the use of a very dominant double pedal. The vocal character of the sub genre is influenced by band vocalist Judas Priest, Rob Harlfod and Iron Maiden band vocalist Bruce Dickinson. The band that takes a lot of this type of music mostly comes from continental Europe and Asia. From Europe has bands Hellowen (Germany), Iron Maiden (UK), and Europe (Sweden). In Asia alone, many bands with power metal flows come from Indonesia, such as Power Metal.

Why is pop music so successful?

Music is one of the entertainment media in the form of strains of tones arranged into a unified musical union. Some of the world’s most famous music such as hip hop, reage, jazz, indie, R & B, pop music and much more. Each type of music has its own uniqueness in terms of elements of music that make it. One type of music that is still popular and popular to date is pop music. Who does not like pop music? This music became the most popular type of music that has been heard so far and has many fans ranging from children to the elderly. The history of pop music dates back to World War I and began to be popular in 1920 by the people of the United States. This type of music comes from the word ‘popular’ in English which means popular, so it is not wrong if this music is so popular even more popular than the type of music that came before.


Pop music is so popular and even more musicians who focus on working on this type of music considering a lot of people who love it. One of the causes of pop music is addictive to its fans because pop music takes the best part of music and solidifies it into a song. Actually there is a cause that can be proved based on research on the success of pop music in the world, the elements of music contained in pop music.

Elements of Music in Pop Music

1. Chord Progression

Progressions Chord or oblique keys are chord sequences that make sounds into harmony. In this context, it leads to the base of the song in contrast to the melody that can be heard to the surface. Anyone who has ever played a guitar or singing must have known some chord progressions that are so often found on many pop songs.

It can be translated, all the tones follow the previous tone in harmony so it is easy to use as a riff. The notion of the riff itself is a short and repetitive guitar phrase. Most pop music uses a major key because it is generally more vibrant and brings a happy atmosphere to produce a song that is nice to hear. Pop music also often uses this chord because they are very familiar and easy to hear. It was also found that transitions and key changes are rare in pop music.
2. Tempo

Tempo is the measure of the speed of a song that determines the energy of a music. Shaun Ellis & Tom Engelhardt studied the tempo of pop music for 50 years and they found several facts in pop music, including:

In pop music there is not much change. The average pop song revolves around 120 BPM tempo from the 1960s. Why is it about 120 BPM tempo? As already explained, tempo essentially determines the speed and proximity of the song to be a friend of dancing and a composition of a song that is nice to hear. A healthy human heartbeat has a tempo of 60-100 BPM while active but does not perform heavy activities. Heart rate can rise to 120 BPM when the heartbeat feel comfortable but energetic while dancing. Songs also more often have double taps than three taps or “waltz”. The only memorable pop music that has the knock of “waltz” is a song from Norah Jones “Come away with me”.

3. Melody and Harmony

Pop music also focuses on the main melody and provides a little counterpoint. Counterpoints are two or more sequences of adjacent series of melodies. Harmony and counterpoint makes a song rich and beautiful. However, it is different from most pop music where it becomes not easily heard. Focusing on the main melody and hooks in a song makes it more interesting.

Think about when you’re singing a pop song during a karoke, usually there’s only one voice to notice. Unlike when singing a music that has some sound and the sound is moving on its own. In music, counterpoints make rich sound and add to the level of difficulty. However, it is not common in pop music where it can make a slightly less interesting version of one music and reduce focus on the main vocal.
