Rock non-stop 24 hour music party. Every song a dance hit!
Rock music is a genre of music started in America.
It has its roots in 1940s and 1950s rock and roll and rockabilly, which evolved from blues, country music and other influences.
According to the All Music Guide, “In its purest form, Rock & Roll has three chords, a strong, insistent back beat, and a catchy melody.
Early rock & roll drew from a variety of sources, primarily blues, R&B, and country, but also gospel, traditional pop, jazz, and folk.
All of these influences combined in a simple, blues-based song structure that was fast, danceable, and catchy.”
Rock usually has a prominent vocal melody, accompanied by guitar, drums, and bass.
Many styles of rock music also use keyboard instruments such as organ, piano, mellotron, and synthesizers.
Other instruments sometimes utilized in rock include saxophone (originally in the 50s the central instrument), harmonica, violin, flute, French horn, banjo, melodica, and timpani.
Also, less common stringed instruments such as mandolin and sitar are used.
Rock music usually has a strong back beat, and often revolves around the guitar, either solid electric, hollow electric, or acoustic.
