With one or two more clips in accordion, would move on to the next instrument.

Another scintillating accordion piece, from the compositions of Mellisai Mannar.

Prelude of the song "Komali komali" from the film Padithal Mattum Podhuma.

Simply great

Dear friends,
Happy to resume this after a break.



DOUBLE BASS ...

What wikipedia has to say on this:

Quote:

The double bass, or upright bass, also called the string bass, contrabass, bass viol, stand-up bass, bull fiddle or simply bass, is the largest and lowest-pitched bowed string instrument of the viol family in the modern symphony orchestra, with strings usually tuned to E1, A1, D2 and G2 (see standard tuning). The double bass is a standard member of the orchestra,[1] smaller string ensembles,[2] and the concert band in Western classical music. The bass is used in a range of genres, such as jazz, 1950s-style blues and rock and roll, rockabilly/psychobilly, traditional country music, bluegrass, tango and many types of folk music. A person who plays the double bass is usually referred to as a bassist or bass player. The double bass is a transposing instrument and sounds one octave lower than notated to avoid excessive ledger lines.

The double bass is played either with a bow (arco) or by plucking the strings (pizzicato). In orchestral repertoire and tango music, both arco and pizzicato are employed. In jazz, blues, and rockabilly, pizzicato is the norm. While classical music uses just the natural sound produced acoustically by the instrument, in jazz, blues, and related genres, the bass is typically amplified with a bass amplifier.

The double bass is the only modern bowed string instrument that is tuned in fourths (like a viol), rather than fifths. The issue of the instrument's exact lineage is still a matter of some debate, and the claim that the double bass is a direct descendant of the viol family is one that has not been entirely resolved. Some scholars argue that the bass is derived from the violin family.

Before proceeding would like to share a video on Double Bass courtesy youtube:

I would be happy if our friends throw more light on this since I feel our music God has extensively used this in many situations.

One of the songs if I am correct, is the song "I will sing for you" from Manidaril Manikkam in which the double bass sounds after the first charanam. Similarly the foot tapping bits are morely played in the double bass in Mellisai Mannar's compositions. The bits in Paadinaal Oru Paattu from Oru Thaai Makkal and Nal Vaazthu Naan Solven from Pattikkada Pattanama feature double bass I presume.

Dear friends please correct me if I am wrong and throw more lights on this instrument used by our Music God.

Paadinaal Oru Paattu:

Dear Raghavendran Sir,

I think DB was used for Yaradhu Yaradhu Thangama - MGR -Sarojadevi duet , Kalyana naal parka sollalama extensively.

May be for Nan nandri solven too.
