  5. Thanks guys but that's not it... it doesn't mean just slow or stop

    another example... a lyric says "knock.. and the drummer goes 'rap,rap,
    rap', on the rim.... it's a more general term... a writing, arranging
    device..*and* it's on the tip of my tongue.... arrrrr...

  10. I know what you are asking and I've gone through Don Sebesky, Russ Garcia,
    Clinton Roemer, Van Alexander and Mickey Baker arranging books but still
    haven't found the term. Dang!

    Maybe this will help. It is a glossary of music terms.
