Boogie Woogie - my heart beat
Boogie rythm reminds me of a train
How do you explain Boogie Woggie? The New Harvard Dictionary of Music2, 1986, defines "Boogie Woogie" as "a piano blues style featuring percussive ostinato accompaniments" that involve "steadily repeated bass patterns, one or two bars long" that "delineate the 12-bar blues progression, sometimes with IV in measure 2 or 10." This dictionary also states, "Melodies range from series of repeated figures reinforcing the explicit beat (including tremolos, riffs, rapid triplets) to polyrhythmic improvisations." To me that does not explain anything of the beat, the rythm and THE JOY of BW! How about you?<
Facts I found about BW
from many sources
A couple of facts were the same but besides this you will have to go to the links on this lens to read what is said.
Boggie Woogie - spelled Boggie Woggie too - origin from south of Texas, US
It has to do with the sound of the old steam engine trains. When they came tuffing they sounded like the rythm - or did they?
The man on the photo here is George Thomas. He is said the be the first to write down the music.
