POP MUSIC
Pop music (a term that originally derives from an abbreviation of "popular") is
a genre of popular music which originated in its modern form in the 1950s,
deriving from rock and roll The terms "popular music" and "pop music" are often
used interchangeably, even though the former is a description of music which is
popular (and can include any style).
As a genre, pop music is very eclectic, often borrowing elements from other
styles including urban, dance, rock, Latin and country, nonetheless, there are
core elements which define pop. Such include generally short-to-medium length
songs, written in a basic format (often the verse-chorus structure, as well as the
common employment of repeated choruses, melodic tunes, and catchy hooks.
So-called "pure pop" music, such as power pop, features all these elements,
using electric guitars, drums and bass for instrumentation; in the case of such
music, the main goal is usually that of being pleasurable to listen to, rather than
having much artistic depth. Pop music is generally thought of as a genre which
is commercially recorded and desires to have a mass audience appeal.
INSTRUMENTS IN POP MUSIC
Guitars
Guitars are common in pop
music. Types of guitars used in
pop music include bass guitars,
acoustic guitars and electric
guitars. A guitar is a stringed
instrument. Bass guitars
generally have four strings.
Electric and acoustic guitars
usually have six or 12 strings.
Electric guitars, including
electric bass guitars, must be
used with a guitar cable and
powered amplifier to output an
audible level of sound.
Drums

Drums in pop music
can be played by a
drummer on a drum kit
or they can be
produced electronically
by a computer.
Computer drums have a
more digital sound that
can feel robotic and
less natural than drums
played by a person.
Drums are essential to
establish the beat and
keep the song moving
forward.
Wind Instruments
Wind instruments such
as saxophones,
trumpets and flutes
help give pop music a
realistic and full sound.
Saxophones make their
most prominent
appearances in smooth,
sexy 1970s-style songs
in the vein of
performers such as
Barry White and Isaac
Hayes.
Orchestral Strings

Orchestral string instruments
such as the violin, viola and
cello are occasionally
featured in pop music.
Orchestral string instruments
are often used to accompany
solo vocalists in slow songs,
but they occasionally make
an appearance in pop rock
and metal songs as well.
Many songs from the band
Queen feature strings, and so
do many songs by the
Beatles.

decade he emerged as a young

unmeasurable. They continue
to hold the record for the
