Re: tremelo question
Tremolo is definitely not outside of time. It starts in time and it ends in time and even the lengths of each stroke within the tremolo are timed according to the tempo of the tune. The idea that you just suddenly start DUDUDUDUDU as fast as you can to do tremolo is a fallacy. Different tremolo uses different note duration but it starts and ends in time, and the notes themselves are subdivisions of the unit and tempo of the piece in which it is played. The number of up and down picking will be determined by the tempo and rhythm of the piece. Do not get the idea that tremolo is simply real fast picking. All the examples of tremolo in this thread are in time. If you slow down that Baldassari piece, you will hear that the tremolo is a perfect subdivision of the quarter note in the time signature.
