Percussion
A PERCUSSION INSTRUMENT is a musical instrument that is sounded by being struck or scraped by a beater (including attached or enclosed beaters or rattles ); struck, scraped or rubbed by hand; or struck against another similar instrument. The percussion family is believed to include the oldest musical instruments, following the human voice . The percussion section of an orchestra most commonly contains instruments such as timpani , snare drum , bass drum , cymbals , triangle and tambourine . However, the section can also contain non-percussive instruments, such as whistles and sirens , or a blown conch shell. Percussive techniques can also be applied to the human body, as in body percussion . On the other hand, keyboard instruments , such as the celesta , are not normally part of the percussion section, but keyboard percussion instruments such as the glockenspiel and xylophone (which do not have piano keyboards) are included

Demo (music)
A DEMO (from "demonstration") is a song or group of songs recorded for limited circulation or reference use rather than for general public release. A demo is a way for a musician to approximate their ideas in a fixed format, such as cassette tape , compact disc , or digital audio files , and to thereby pass along those ideas to record labels, record producers , or to other artists. Musicians often use demos as quick sketches to share with bandmates or arrangers or simply for personal reference during the songwriting process; in other cases a songwriter might make a demo to send to artists in hopes of having the song professionally recorded, or a music publisher may need a simple recording for publishing or copyright purposes

Bass Guitar
The BASS GUITAR (also known as ELECTRIC BASS, or BASS) is a stringed instrument played primarily with the fingers or thumb, by plucking, slapping , popping, strumming, tapping, thumping, or picking with a plectrum , often known as a pick. The bass guitar is similar in appearance and construction to an electric guitar , but with a longer neck and scale length , and four to six strings or courses . The four-string bass, by far the most common, is usually tuned the same as the double bass , which corresponds to pitches one octave lower than the four lowest pitched strings of a guitar (E, A, D, and G). The bass guitar is a transposing instrument , as it is notated in bass clef an octave higher than it sounds. The electric bass guitar has pickups and needs to be connected to an amplifier and speaker , to make a sound loud enough to compete with other instruments

CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 See also * 3 References * 4 External links HISTORYFounded in 1978, Rhino was originally a novelty and reissue label during the 1970s and 1980s. It released compilation albums of pop , rock & roll , and rhythm "> thanks to the effort of then-store manager Harold Bronson . Their early releases were mostly novelty records (their first single, in 1975, was Wild Man Fischer 's "Go To Rhino Records") and punk rock singles; the difficulties involved in getting airplay and distribution for such material eventually caused Foos and Bronson to take the label in other directions. One of Rhino's early artists was The Twisters, whose Los Angeles

Album
An ALBUM is a collection of audio recordings issued as a single item on CD , record , audio tape or another medium. Albums of recorded music were developed in the early 20th century, first as books of individual 78rpm records , then from 1948 as vinyl LP records played at  33 1⁄3 rpm . Vinyl LPs are still issued, though in the 21st-century album sales have mostly focused on compact disc (CD) and MP3
MP3
formats. The audio cassette was a format used from the late 1970s through to the 1990s alongside vinyl. An album may be recorded in a recording studio (fixed or mobile), in a concert venue, at home, in the field, or a mix of places. The time frame for completely recording an album varies between a few hours to several years. This process usually requires several takes with different parts recorded separately, and then brought or "mixed " together. Recordings that are done in one take without overdubbing are termed "live", even when done in a studio

Harmonica
The HARMONICA, also known as a FRENCH HARP or MOUTH ORGAN , is a free reed wind instrument used worldwide in many musical genres, notably in blues , American folk music , classical music , jazz , country , and rock and roll . There are many types of harmonica, including diatonic, chromatic, tremolo, octave, orchestral, and bass versions. A harmonica is played by using the mouth (lips and tongue) to direct air into or out of one or more holes along a mouthpiece. Behind each hole is a chamber containing at least one reed . A harmonica reed is a flat elongated spring typically made of brass , stainless steel , or bronze , which is secured at one end over a slot that serves as an airway. When the free end is made to vibrate by the player's air, it alternately blocks and unblocks the airway to produce sound. Reeds are pre-tuned to individual pitches. Tuning may involve changing a reeds length, the weight near its free end, or the stiffness near its fixed end

Guitars
The GUITAR is a musical instrument classified as a fretted string instrument with anywhere from four to 18 strings, usually having six. The sound is projected either acoustically, using a hollow wooden or plastic and wood box (for an acoustic guitar ), or through electrical amplifier and a speaker (for an electric guitar ). It is typically played by strumming or plucking the strings with the fingers, thumb or fingernails of the right hand or with a pick while fretting (or pressing against the frets ) the strings with the fingers of the left hand. The guitar is a type of chordophone , traditionally constructed from wood and strung with either gut, nylon or steel strings and distinguished from other chordophones by its construction and tuning. The modern guitar was preceded by the gittern , the vihuela , the four-course Renaissance guitar , and the five-course baroque guitar , all of which contributed to the development of the modern six-string instrument

Fender Rhodes
The RHODES PIANO (also known as the FENDER RHODES PIANO or simply FENDER RHODES or RHODES) is an electric piano invented by Harold Rhodes , which became particularly popular throughout the 1970s. Like a piano , it generates sound using keys and hammers, but instead of strings, the hammers strike thin metal tines , which are then amplified via an electromagnetic pickup which is plugged into an external keyboard amplifier and speaker . The instrument evolved from Rhodes' attempt to manufacture pianos to teach recovering soldiers during World War II

Hohner Pianet
The PIANET is a type of electro-mechanical piano built by the Hohner company of Trossingen , West Germany , from the early 1960s to the early 1980s. The designer of the early Pianet models was Ernst Zacharias , basing the mechanism closely on a 1920s design by Lloyd Loar . The Pianet was a variant of the earlier reed-based Hohner electric piano the Cembalet which, like the Pianet, was intended for home use. Hohner offered both keyboards in their range until the early 1970s. The Pianet production consisted of two distinctly different mechanism groups with characteristically different sound. The first group, lasting from introduction to 1977, had ground stainless steel reeds, a pick-up using variable capacitance, and leather faced activation pads. The second group from 1977 until the end of production used rolled spring-steel reeds, electro-magnetic pick-ups, and moulded silicone rubber activation pads
