double bass drums

Hi everyone sorry i took so long to make the instruments…Here’s some progress so far, since it was a old mod i made i wanted to edited it a bit. (i had to resize the “Double bass, Cello, Violin & Music sheet stand” since it was to big)

I don’t plan on making a lot of instruments…since i’m kinda lazy

Also eemie has already made a really nice Celesta in her Classy new interior mod so i decided not to included a piano with my Instruments set. (*´_ゝ`)

What each instrument says the most
  • Oboe: I bought shot-glasses and cigarette paper this weekend.... NO IT'S FOR MY OBOE I SWEAR
  • Flute: Yeah, she said she was going to do the Chaminade too. Looks like we'll have two people playing the concertino for the solo show this year, or there's always murder, you know
  • clarinet: It's my reed. Hold on I'll get another one out... also if another person asks me to play the mozart clarinet concerto i'll slap a bitch
  • Bassoon: could you scoot over a bit? I need more space to lean my bassoon... My posture is just fine, THANKS
  • Saxophone: shit. i still have my neck-strap on don't I?
  • Drums: Is the snare on? GOD, who turned the snare off again?! AND! Where the frickity frack are my sticks?
  • timpani: i gotta tune the timpani. hold on
  • trumpet: i hate partial jumping practice so much
  • trombone: Do you want to hear my gliss?
  • tuba: i literally play four notes the entire piece..,.
  • horn: look i don't know why we stick the hand in the bell. don't ask. it's just how it is
  • cello: yeah my cello cost 13,000 and my bow is custom made, so it's like 6,000 and my new case which is shock absorbent, fireproof and waterproof cost like 7,500
  • viola: I know we're trying to play louder it's the loudest i can get i know i know i'm so sick of pizzicato accompaniment give me a break please
  • violin: um I can't see the concertmaster's bowings from back here... yeah i know i can watch the person in front of me im not stupid it's just...
  • double bass: how the fuck am I supposed to carry this thing through the door? Hey, can you hold it open for me

My entry for the Septicart event! I tried something very different from what I normally do, I took one concept, and split it into three different drawing ideas(also, I may have lost anti halfway through the project and decided to just edit him this way because I’d already slaved away for DAYS on him and i was NOT going to do that shit to myself again, but hey that explanation just sounds like I was being lazy… Trust me, it took me WAY longer this way), and used a shitty photoediter to combine them. Hope this is acceptable…

Sidenote: what would Anti’s band be called? I want to work on a series of all the egos in a musician AU, and really wanted to know what anti would name his band( might have Robbie in the band as well)

The Signs as Music Hoe Aesthetics
  • Aries: The slight rumbling you feel on the floor when you sit in front of the percussion
  • Taurus: the sound of the orchestra tuning, and you already feel your heart beating faster from a simple concert A
  • Gemini: The low chatter of anticipation from the audience before the performance
  • Cancer: Music torn at the edges with pencil writings scrawled all over the notes, a testament to somebody's time and passion
  • Leo: The feeling of playing a piece memorized; not just thinking about the notes but letting the music and your fingers work their magic
  • Virgo: The bright reflective lights on the keys of woodwinds and brass in the shining concert lights
  • Capricorn: When a person is so into the music that they start to dance and become a fluid structure, free and unbridled and emotional
  • Sagittarius: The feeling you get when you are in concert black with all of your friends, kind of like being a blurry smoke cloud in the night that moves together, breathes together, and performs together
  • Scorpio: when the string players are so into their music that their bow hairs start to fray and unravel and it's a mess of blurry lines moving like liquid silver
  • Libra: the conductor's arms, especially in staccato/scherzo moments, where movement is light and graceful and just there, showing its presence but not forcing it on
  • Aquarius: The adrenaline rush of playing a solo in a piece and the honor of standing up after it ends, where you have those few seconds just for you and only you
  • Pisces: The last note ringing around the air and the heavy, almost tangible silence which occurs for a microsecond afterwards

okay so me and @thelast-dodo are crying over musically inclined + adhd Lance McClain, and just voltron characters + music in general so I just…

•  Lance is great with string instruments, especially the ukulele and the guitar
•  He’s had an undying love for the ukulele since he was like 9 because he managed to strum a chord and half his family cheered and his dad stuck a sticker on his cheek
•  Both his guitar and uku are a mess of bumps and dings, and they’re both plastered with stickers all over
•  He plays when he’s stressed
•  He plays when everybody else is stressed, too
•  He’s constantly strumming similar patterns when morale’s low and urging the others to input their own lyrics, anything at all
•  “C’mon, Keith, you usually never shut up!” “Aw, please, Allura, I never hear you sing!” “Shiro you know you wanna”
•  Hunk’s the first to try it out, and pretty much after that they’re doing their best to sing something even slightly coherent
•  It’s never coherent, ever, but that makes it extra fun
•  Lance has so many lyrics stuck in his head at all times
•  Lyrics he doesn’t understand ‘You’re a constellation and stars mean everything to me, you’re the sun and being warm is everything to me-’ and lyrics he does understand ‘Playin’ word catch with you is like a dream, I’ll tell you-’ and lyrics that chime and ding and lyrics that feel like sparklers and feel like Summer or scarves or cat purrs
•  He makes up songs all the time and he knows he has a good voice so goddamnit, he’s gonna sing all the time if he wants to!
•  Keith is the first to learn one of his songs off by heart and gosh, can those two boys harmonise
•  It nearly brings Lance to tears when Keith’s able to join in with one of his songs all the way through, he hadn’t been expecting it
•  There are notes everywhere with stray lyrics on them
•  Hunk starts collecting them first, and putting them in Lance’s room for safe keeping
•  Soon enough everybody’s doing that too
•  Sometimes Keith and Lance are handing out in Lance’s room, Lance strumming away absently and Keith just letting the sound wash over him
•  Lance’s words might get stuck and Keith just pulls a suitable lyric from his notes and sings it, and the song carries on
•  Lance’s music is sporadic and unpredictable in every way, and moves and changes unexpectedly
•  His train of thought changes a lot while he’s thinking about the music and the words together
•  Allura once asked if that was how Earth music worked normally. Shiro just grinned at her. “No, that’s just how Lance music works.”
•  The boy cant read sheet music for the life of him, he just kinda knows where chords fit together and the boy just gets it without really getting it
•  Pidge once called him the “Mozart of the ukulele” but Keith rejected that real quick, because Mozart relied on sheet music, and anyway, Lance is the Lance of the ukulele because nobody else can play like Lance can
•  Lance blushes at that. A lot.

anonymous asked:

Is g playing Bratsche? Idfk what it's called in English Surry:(((

yea hes the viola player!! usually theres not a 1st viola/2nd viola part in smaller string group pieces (from what ive seen??) but theres usually a 1st violin/2nd violin part for most pieces so i thought itd work better having ray + frank as violinists since theyre the guitarists :’-0 lets…just say…theyre a very viola centered group….

How would you describe the color red to a color blind person?”
“It’s the heat in your cheeks when you think about the person you love, the slow burn of alcohol running down your throat. It’s that loud crash of fireworks, the rasp of fur spiking the wrong way, the feeling of skin rubbed raw against cloth. It’s the quick step of a drummer’s double pedal on the bass drum, that guitar lick you heard and can’t quite remember. The sultry sound of a woman’s laugh in your ear, the sticky gooey thrum of a Ferrari’s engine. It’s abrasive and brash and altogether too much, but sometimes it’s the essence of life itself.

Oscar Peterson Trio - Salute to Bach
Oscar Peterson : Piano.
NHOP : Double bass.
Martin Drew : Drums.

some mostly music-based jake dillinger headcanons

• jake is spanish (like, spain spanish) on his mom’s side and can speak/sing it fluently

• instruments jake can play include: guitar, piano, bass clarinet, drums, double bass, french horn, banjo, harp, flute, viola, and ukulele

• he learned bass clarinet, flute, french horn, viola, and bass from school. he’s in orchestra (viola), concert band(fh, bc, flute), and jazz band (bass). his teachers are honestly shocked he can complete his school work at all.

• jake’s mother taught him guitar, so he has some sweet spanish guitar skills (rich thinks it’s hot)

• brooke taught jake ukulele junior year. she ended up buying him (a pastel pink) one and jake cried about it a lil (a lot)

• jake is from south carolina, but nobody in the group knows at first. one time he said “yaint” and michael screamed. he learned the banjo just to piss them off.

• jake’s favorite instrument is the harp. he used to have his own, but it burned with the house.

• actually, most of jake’s instruments burned with the house (all except his bass clarinet, flute, viola, and french horn; because they were stored at the school).

• he’s pretty upset about it, but what really hurts is that his guitar is gone. it used to be his mother’s, but se left it for him when she and his dad left.

• jake ends up telling his friends about it (since he can’t keep anything inside to save his life), and his friends end up getting him a new guitar for his birthday senior year w/ everyone’s names written on it. he cries a lot.

• michael is a REALLY good drummer, and jake takes lessons from him sometimes. although most of his advice is,,,, only somewhat helpful (“you just gotta feel the music, jake”).

• after they move in together, jake tries to teach rich how to play piano. at first, rich is pretty hesitant and frustrated because he’s pretty bad at it, but he picks it up relatively quickly.

• over the course of a few years, jake’s apartment ends up FILLED with instruments.

• jake’s favorite singers include: carly rae jepsen, owl city, bruno mars, and paramore

• michael ended up getting him into ajr when he played them during a car ride and jake thought it was the greatest thing ever.

• jake cries a lot, mostly when nobody’s around to judge him

• jake has adhd, and he stims by humming

• jake gets songs stuck in his head really easily. one time rich heard him humming a my chemical romance song that was on the radio during the ride home and he slapped him.

• jake never went through an emo phase. he’s the only one who didn’t.

• he sings in the shower a LOT. one time rich recorded it from outside the bathroom and sent it to all their friends. jake locked him out until he deleted the video. (“BUT IT WAS SO CUTE BRO” “it was a breach of privacy!” “DUDE JUST LET ME IN I’M TIRED” “delete the video!” “NEVER!” “then it looks like you’re sleeping in the HALLWAY!” “bRO-”)

• jake perfectly sings along to vocaloid. nobody asks questions.

• jake wrote an archie fan song during sophomore year. only rich has heard it. he refuses to tell anyone how it was


Don Hunstein, 1959
In the summer of 1959, the Dave Brubeck Quartet – Brubeck (piano), Paul Desmond (alto saxophone), Eugene Wright (double bass) and Joe Morello (drums) – laid down three sessions (June 25, July 1, August 18) in the 30th Street Studio with producer Teo Macero for an experiment in polyrhythmic cool jazz called “Time Out.” The album’s defining track, “Take Five,” with its eternal sax hook and quintuple time signature has become one of the most enduring jazz standards of all-time. These snapshots of the Brubeck Quartet captures the essential magic of that in those sessions. - D.H.

Cannonball Adderley, Rick Holmes, The Nat Adderley Sextet “ Soul Zodiac” 1972 US Jazz Funk,Soul Jazz,Deep Jazz.


Awesome cult classic deep jazz album from Nat Adderley featuring narrations from radio DJ Rick Holmes on the theme of astrology!
Mystical out-there 1972 deep jazz wig outs, as sampled by artists such as Tribe Called Quest!
This is some deep stuff! If you like the Soul of the Bible album then this is very similar! …Recommended!………..

“Soul Zodiac” is an album by jazz cornetist Nat Adderley released on the Capitol label featuring performances by Adderley’s Sextet with Ernie Watts, Mike Deasy, George Duke, Walter Booker, and Roy McCurdy with narration by Rick Holmes and Cannonball Adderley guesting on two tracks. Because of the prominent production credit on the cover the album is often mistakenly credited to Cannonball Adderley. Also, Soul Zodiac is not to be confused with Cannonball Adderley’s Love, Sex, and the Zodiac. …….~Wikipedia~ …….

A few seconds of spacy echo loops and you know where this album is coming from – the early jazz/rock era, the Age of Aquarius and all that. Yet this crazy amalgam of jazz, rock, electronics, and spoken astrological advice by the popular Los Angeles DJ Rick Holmes actually works, for the music behind the soulfully intoned words is very inventive and Holmes plays effectively off its rhythms. Basically this is the Cannonball Adderley group (Nat, cornet; George Duke, electric piano; Walter Booker, bass; Roy McCurdy, drums), with the young eloquent Ernie Watts sitting in for Cannonball (who appears only on “Libra” and “Aries”) on tenor and flute, and Mike Deasy contributing wild psychedelic guitar at times. Indeed Nat seems like just the nominal leader of the session – Cannonball actually gets top billing as co-producer – though he plays spiritedly at all times. The music is very eclectic, ranging from mainstream jazz to free-form freak-outs and even hilarious heavy metal rock on the stomping 14-minute “Taurus.” Actually these were expansions of the directions the Adderley group was exploring at the time, and one wonders how they determined the idiom for each sign. Whether or not you accept astrology, this double set is a lot of fun…….by Richard S. Ginell..allmusic…….

One of the great alto saxophonists, Cannonball Adderley had an exuberant and happy sound that communicated immediately to listeners. His intelligent presentation of his music (often explaining what he and his musicians were going to play) helped make him one of the most popular of all jazzmen. Adderley already had an established career as a high school band director in Florida when, during a 1955 visit to New York, he was persuaded to sit in with Oscar Pettiford’s group at the Cafe Bohemia. His playing created such a sensation that he was soon signed to Savoy and persuaded to play jazz full-time in New York. With his younger brother, cornetist Nat, Cannonball formed a quintet that struggled until its breakup in 1957. Adderley then joined Miles Davis, forming part of his super sextet with John Coltrane and participating on such classic recordings as Milestones and Kind of Blue. Adderley’s second attempt to form a quintet with his brother was much more successful for, in 1959, with pianist Bobby Timmons, he had a hit recording of “This Here.” From then on, Cannonball always was able to work steadily with his band. During its Riverside years (1959-1963), the Adderley Quintet primarily played soulful renditions of hard bop and Cannonball really excelled in the straight-ahead settings. During 1962-1963, Yusef Lateef made the group a sextet and pianist Joe Zawinul was an important new member. The collapse of Riverside resulted in Adderley signing with Capitol and his recordings became gradually more commercial. Charles Lloyd was in Lateef’s place for a year (with less success) and then with his departure the group went back to being a quintet. Zawinul’s 1966 composition “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy” was a huge hit for the group, Adderley started doubling on soprano, and the quintet’s later recordings emphasized long melody statements, funky rhythms, and electronics. However, during his last year, Cannonball Adderley was revisiting the past a bit and on Phenix he recorded new versions of many of his earlier numbers. But before he could evolve his music any further, Cannonball Adderley died suddenly from a stroke. ~ Scott Yanow…………..

One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling all the way through – a darkly brooding batch of funky jazz that shows a strong Miles Davis electric influence at points, thanks to Nat Adderley’s spacey trumpet lines, Mike Deasy’s trippy guitar, and George Duke’s excellent keyboards! Other tracks are a bit more laidback, fitting the mood of their respective signs – and overall, the whole thing slips and slides wonderfully from cut to cut – taking you through the star signs with a really righteous, soulful approach. Titles include “Cancer”, “Sagittarius”, “Pisces”, “Aquarius”, “Capricorn”, “Virgo”, “Taurus”, “Aries”, “Libra”, and a special “Introduction”. (………… 

The Nat Adderley Sextet’s Soul Zodiac could easily have been buried in a time capsule as an example to future generations of the ideas that were in the air in late 60s/ early 70s popular culture. A concept album based on the signs of the Zodiac, a hip narration, psychedelic guitars and some fatback drums. Paradoxically it was this level of vogueishness, that for many years consigned it to the parts of the jazz catalogue that time had forgotten. However in the early 90s the acid jazz scene discovered its funk filled grooves and hip hop producers used those very grooves as the building blocks of their own records, turning the album into a sought after collector’s item. The Adderley brothers were born in Florida, Julian, more famously known as ‘Cannonball’ in 1928 and Nat in 1931. Cannon became a renowned alto saxophonist, and one of the leading bandleaders of his day. Signing in 1955 to Mercury Records, but making himself a national name when he joined the Miles Davis Sextet in 1957 being present on the recording of Davis’ most enduring album Kind Of Blue. After leaving Davis he signed to the New York independent jazz label Riverside where he began to score a series of jazz hits that would make his group one of the most successful jazz bands of the time. A key component of that group was his brother Nat who had played at various times with his brother in the 50s, as well as with J J Johnson and Lionel Hampton. After rejoining Cannon he would stay in his bands until his brother’s death in 1975. As well as his cornet playing being the front-line instrumental foil to Cannon he was also responsible for some of the most important tunes in the group’s song-book including 'Work Song’, 'Jive Samba’ and 'Tengo Tango’. The Cannonball Adderley Quintet’s success, and problems at Riverside saw them signed in 1964 to Capitol Records and working alongside staff A&R man and producer David Axelrod. Axelrod and Cannon got on well, and they settled into an extended period of work that would see the group reach a new level of success. That success reached its peak - commercially at least - with 1967’s LP Live At The Club. This album contained the Joe Zawinul composition 'Mercy Mercy Mercy’, which when edited down and released as a single became one of the biggest jazz hits of the decade. This success fed itself through to a level of freedom for the participants, that allowed them to experiment with the sorts of records that they could make. Axelrod made a pair of albums based on the works of William Blake Songs Of Innocence and Songs Of Experience, whilst Cannonball made an album focused on Africa, and released an album, Country Preacher that paid explicit tribute to Black rights leader Jesse Jackson. Nat Adderley was also given his opportunity. Since his breakthrough as a writer with his brother he had made several LPs as a leader, first of all at Riverside then Atlantic, Milestone and most recently under Creed Taylor’s auspices at A&M. Although fairly numerous and of high quality these albums had always been really distractions from the day job of playing with his brother. Although the same could be said about the two “Cannonball Adderley presents The Nat Adderley Sextet” albums released by Capitol in the early 70s, there was a certain substance to them that suggested that they were definitely given more thought than usual. Those two albums were Soul Zodiac and Soul Of The Bible, produced by Cannonball Adderley and David Axelrod. In Wax Poetics magazine Axelrod was dismissive of Soul Of The Bible stating that it was so bad that it deserved not just to be rare but to be dead. He claimed that the problem was Rick Holmes’ narrations which just didn’t seem - to him - to work on the Bible stories. However of Soul Zodiac he had a much higher opinion “..astrology was fine, and Rick was really into astrology.(it) was a smash hit”. Holmes may well have been the key to these records being made in the first place. He was one of the most influential jazz DJs in the country, the host of his own show on KBCA a very big jazz station………………
