Love reading the music/musicality threads but within seconds I'm floundering as I don't have any musical background - I just sort of "like and dance to what I hear!". Recently, I've been sitting down and actively listening to the music and that's definitely increased my appreciation, including tunes I thought I knew really well. Mostly that's enough but I really would like to understand more (if I can). I've been told to listen to "phrases that are repeated", "its like sentences", "listen to phrase A, repeated, B, now A, now D". I nod wisely but I really don't have a clue what they're talking about. I feel like I'm 3 years old , just learning to read and then given War and Peace and told either a) look what you'll be able to understand one day or, worse: b) read it! Anyone interested in a thread that takes a step-by-step approach to analysing the structure of tango music. Or maybe somebody could give me details of earlier threads or websites that could help. An approach that worked in salsa was to take a well-known salsa tune with a classic/simple structure, find a good youtube clip and then discuss its structure, beat, melody, harmony and rhythms. (But I "don't know, what I don't know" so the musicians would be the best people to decide the appropriate headings). Some people posted clips of dancers, dancing to the particular piece of music to emphasis the discussion on the music. Over time, we could develop quite a wealth of knowledge and bank of information for tango dancers interested in developing their knowledge of tango music.
