posticon Tremolo


Hi everyone,

I just signed up today and am interested in finding any types of lesson plans for students to study on tremolo technique. I will be starting with some basic tremolo drills but would like to have something they can study. I could develop my own but wanted to check here first.

Thanks!

Damon

...and then one day you find, eight months have gone behind... oh well better late than never. I, of course could be wrong (I frequently am) but are you refering to tremelo or vibrato? Tremelo is, I think, an ocillation in volume and vibrato a similar back and forth in pitch. And both can be applied at nearly infinte rates. shakin' all over

Re: Tremolo


exactly to the explanation. and I agree that tremelo is varying the volume (usually using pulsing in a wind instrument or the tremolo switch on an old fender amp surfer style). Vibrato occilates the pitch of a note and in doing so, it usually varies the volume slightly as well. In other words, you can have tremelo without vibrato, but you can't have vibrato without a little tremolo intertwined. My opinion anyway. cheers.

Re: Tremolo


You're all right! Tremolo has two meanings: it can be a variation in amplitude, but I think the type of tremolo Damon was referring to is the repetition of a single note (usually at quite a rapid speed). See the wikipedia article for more info ([sign in to see URL]). I'm assuming Damon means pickstyle, although this is used (particularly by classical & Spanish guitarists) in fingerstyle too.

Re: Tremolo


Yes, tremelo picking is basically playing in really fast picking.


I get confused when people mean that type of tremelo, too. I see tremelo as increasing/decreasing volume.
