Electric guitar

The device of an electric guitar on the example of Fender Stratocaster:
1-Vulture. 2-body. 3-head neck. 4-upper nut. 5-Porozhek fret. 6-Kolka. 7-bridge (with tremolo). 8-pickup humbucker. 9-Pickup single. 10-Lever. 11-pickup switch. 12-tone control 13-volume control. 14-Socket for connecting the cord. 15-Hole for adjusting the anchor. 16-belt attachment. 17-fret marker.

The fretboard of the electric guitar (1) is practically no different from the acoustics and consists of two parts: the fretboard itself and the overlay fastened with glue. Recall that the fingerboard is its upper part, on which the frets are located. On the head of the neck (3) there are also pegs (6), and inside the neck there is an anchor, the task of which is still the same – to prevent the strings from bending the neck. The bar can be glued to the deck, or it can be attached with screws (this is one of the differences from acoustics). Continue reading

Sounds that are not

We listen to a cassette of spiritual music – Tibetan monks or Gregorian singing. If you listen carefully, you can hear how the voices merge, forming one pulsating tone.

This is one of the most interesting effects inherent in some musical instruments and the chorus of people singing in approximately the same key – the formation of beats. When voices or instruments converge in unison, the beats slow down, and when they diverge, they accelerate.

Perhaps this effect would remain in the sphere of interest only of musicians, if not for the researcher Robert Monroe. He realized that despite the widespread fame in the scientific world of the effect of beats, no one investigated their effect on a person’s state when listening through stereo headphones. Monroe discovered that when listening to sounds of close frequency on different channels (right and left), a person feels the so-called binaural beats, or binaural beats. Continue reading

We see the sound

1. “Sound + color”?
The property of sounds to evoke color images has been noticed a long time ago. Much has been written about the color rumor of A. Scriabin, who saw musical sounds in color. The whole direction in art – color music – is based on this property of music sounds.

There is evidence that speech sounds, especially vowels, can also be perceived in color. A. Rimbaud even wrote a vowels sonnet, in which he so colored the sounds:

A is black; white – E; And – red; Y is green; Continue reading
