Arranging rhythm tracks using "Song Rhythm Tracks"

  1. 1. Tutorial - “Song Rhythm Tracks” iOS Apps Arranging and Setlists.
  2. 2. Song Rhythm Tracks - Selecting Song form A big part of why Song Rhythm Tracks sounds so great is because of the song arrangements. You will need to work out the form of the song you will play. It is the same for all Apps -
  3. 3. Song Rhythm Tracks - Selecting Song form Every song has an underlying form. The great thing about using Song Rhythm Tracks is the simple selection, or entering, of that form. It is so much easier than sequencing tracks.
  4. 4. Song Rhythm Tracks - What's my Song's form? Work it out by counting - (i) the number of sections in the form, and (ii) the number of bars in each section. Describe it using stick notation, e.g. "8|10" means two sections, the first 8 and the second 10 bars long.
  5. 5. Song Rhythm Tracks - What's my Song's form? Some song forms have common names which, when available, can be used as well. Some songs have a bridge section (a.k.a. a "middle-8"), which is designed to bring contrast. It is good for the drums to provide contrast during bridges as well.
  6. 6. Song Rhythm Tracks - What's my Song's form? You can listen for these bars and sections or, if you have sheet music, look for them - | Bar-lines || Section Dividers ||: Start of repeated sections :|| Finish of repeated sections
  7. 7. Song Rhythm Tracks - Bridges (aka “Middle-8”) Bridge sections are not always marked. Just remember they are where the repetitions breaks to make way for a contrast of melody, harmony and perhaps a change of key. In stick notation a bridge section is preceded by a "/" instead of a "|".
  8. 8. Song Rhythm Tracks - Example 1- "32-bar AABA" ||: a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a :|| b|b|b|b|b|b|b|b || a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a || This has 4 sections, each of length 8 bars, with the 3rd section being a bridge. Within the Apps, this form can be selected as either "8|8/8|8", or using its common name of "32-bar AABA", as "32.AABA".
  9. 9. Song Rhythm Tracks - Example 2 - "8|10" Form || a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a || a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a || This has 2 sections, the first of length 8 bars, the second of length 10 bars. Enter as a "user-defined" form. Enter "8|10" into the first sections-list box and save.
  10. 10. Song Rhythm Tracks - Entering Song form The song, "Bye Bye Blackbird" may be played with song form "16/8|8". Let's create a new track. Easiest of all is to search for a shared track definition.
  11. 11. Example 3 - “In The Wee Small Hours” || a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a || a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a || It has 2 sections, one of length 8 bars, followed by one of 10 bars. Within the Song Rhythm Tracks App, this form is not available as a selection, so we will use "user-defined" and "8|10".
  12. 12. Example 4 - “Moonlight In Vermont” || a|a|a|a|a|a || a|a|a|a|a|a || a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a || a|a|a|a|a|a|a|a || This song could have more than one arrangement - e.g."6|6/8|6", "6|6|8|6" or "6|6|8|8", which we will use. Within the Song Rhythm Tracks Apps, this form is not available as a selection, so we will use "user-defined" and "6|6|8|8".
  13. 13. Song Rhythm Tracks - Song form - Wrap Up Options - (i) Search for track title, (ii) Select a song form or (iii) Enter one using stick notation.

  15. 15. Song Rhythm Tracks - Wrap Up This concludes the ‘Arranging and Setlists’ tutorial. Check out the other tutorial as well, “Basic Features”, either as video or slides.
