    Sometimes I analyze songs that I like to see how the professionals put them together
    I just want a second opinion of this one tune...

    Is the intro length 32 bars with the actual drop hitting 16 bars later at bar 49? I thought i'd ask because it seems puzzling to me



    I bought the full version of this tune so it is the same in the full version

    Tune drops at 1:05, I reckon. It's a weird one, I agree.

    It just seemed weird to me to have it drop like that i wanted to make sure I was hearing it right
    It just always seems impressive when musicians break the rules like that, it sounds good to hear things done differently
    Ya the tune is sick

    How is this breaking any rules? It's just to add some suspense to the intro.
    If it'd drop it after 45 bars instead of 48 that'd be breaking the rules. But it would also sound screwed up.

    I guess its not really breaking the rules because it is still on the 16th bar
    I mean the fact that its not dropping on 32 or 64 is pretty cool

    You're free to do anything in music really :) I've done 6 bar intros for dubstep and such. As long as it doesn't sound off, it really probably isn't.
