I've done a little reading on this term as I see it frequently. Not sure if I understand tho. What is a pedal tone?

It's an underlying note that stays the same over chord changes. It's usually played on bass and is the 1st or 5th of the scale.

Ithink a good example of this is Judas Priest's "You've Got Another Thing Coming"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gU7sBgjKDCI

The bass and rhythm guitar are "pedaling" on the F# during the entire intro and verse. (and more)

A pedal tone is a note played over and over to create cool intervals with another instrument. My cello teacher (yes, I play that too) told me to play, say, an A on my tuner over an A major scale. This way I could make sure I was playing in tune. (the cello is fretless, so it's easy to get out of tune. mad.gif )

I spelled my username wrong...I didn't even think that was possible!

Look at the topic for my guitar...
Finished Guitar Build

Gear:
Homemade strat (You still need to look at its topic!)
Squier strat (probably going to get rid of it and get another guitar instead) :)
Line 6 spider amp (not actually used for anything, just acts as a speaker)
Digitech Gnx2 (kind of old, but cheap, and sounds amazing!)

Here is a cool link on that mater:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedal_point
The name came from the organ playing in the classical music.And it is most played in brass section(orchestral).

I never realised that but it makes sense cos organs have pedals that play pedal notes.

Pedal tones on brass instruments are the lowest notes possible to play.

I don't think krompir is the word for pedal tone,
pedal tone is repetitive note among other notes,
Bach's trademark I would say. smile.gif

Thanks for clarifying Muris, I'm a bit weak in formal music theory, I should do some reading. wink.gif
