    Default Two questions

    1. What is that thing called at the end of a song where everyone is holding the last note and the drummer is working around the set? Does it have a name?

    2. Is there a book or video that shows you different ways to do this thing whose name I do not know?

    TIA

    1) As far as I know, it's called a finale.

    2) I doubt it.

    Most drummers have their own way of ending a song etc. It is almost like a little end solo. It also gives time for the band to get ready for the next song I think.

    Yes, that's the official musical term. I'm thinking that no one in a rock or jazz band ever calls it that. I would be shocked if they did.

    We had songs that ended like that. The guitar player or keyboard player would go off and I would follow on the drums.

    On rare occasions, the "outro" (we never called it that, or finale, or fermata) lasted longer than the actual song.

    Now I have to go to another forum and give a opinion on tats. I'm going to get a lot of flak on this one, but, I need some turmoil to brighten my day.

    Us rockers always called it the "Trash can ending." Make sure you don't do that on every song, though

    2. you can pretty much do whatever the heck you want. I usually do some nice rapid fire double kick followed by a nice multi tom mega rock fill with a barrage of cymbal crashes then a final bada bomph on the floor toms and kick.

    That's it Rick go to another forum and drop off your frustrations and then come back and be the nice guy that you are on DC. I do it once in awhile cause sometimes it is hard to hold back.LOL

    I think the term you're looking for is coda. Outro is is also frequently used. This is definitely not a fermatta. A fermatta is piece of notation that instructs you to hold a note until the director cuts it off. It looks like a little bird's eye on the sheet music. So, the coda may contain a fermata for the other insturments with the drummer acting as the director and cutting it off.
    Mmm... Saturns.
