Which instruments plays the solo?

Is there a hook?

The texture: is it thick, thin or inbetween? Are there many layers of sound, or just one/two? Are there many voices singing/instruments playing, or just one/two?

The tempo: is it fast, slow or inbetween?

The dynamics: is the music loud, quiet or inbetween? Is it the same throughout or does it vary?

What is the Style of this Music? Is it Pop/Rock/Blues/Gospel/Ballad/R&B/Rap/Soul?

 

Recently, we looked at the style indicators of a pop ballad. Some are listed below. What are the style indicators that you can hear in this song?

  • Slow and gentle backing.
  • Uses instruments like strings and piano and acoustic guitar.
  • The bass and drums are subtle.
  • The words of the ballad are about lost love or celebrating love!
  • Sometimes a pop ballad can have a rock backing and it then becomes a power ballad. This is because of its more powerful backing using electric guitars and heavier drum patterns.

 

Compare this song to Adele’s ‘Make you feel my love’. Are there similarities? Differences? Which one do you prefer? Why?
