Talk:Swing (jazz performance style)
Reference #5 is a dead link. We need another reference, or to delete that sentence, which doesn't really seem to fit in that paragraph.—Preceding unsigned comment added by FelisSchrödingeris (talk • contribs)
- Reference numbers can change, but I assume you are referring to the typepad one, which I have deleted. Dead links can be removed on sight.--Shantavira|feed me 07:48, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
Congratulations to those involved in improvements to this area since I was last here! I took a Wikibreak from this particular article cluster, having failed to resolve a couple of key issues. In my absence the key points seem to have been resolved. Good stuff.
There's still a lot to do. What brought me back though is a minor point: Rosanna shuffle currently redirects here, following a merge of the material previously there to this article. Swung note was also somehow involved, I haven't dredged the history to see how.
- Is this particular section really relevant? It's seems a tad specific for an article on a very broad spectrum of music. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:41, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
Swing is not the same as 12/8
This article perpetuates the myth that "swing" is the same as 12/8. This is a gross oversimplification, and in many cases, it's simply false. This is a concept that leads to stilted and constrained music that utterly fails to swing. Swing feel cannot be reduced to a single mathematical ratio, as the ratio varies greatly according to style, and it varies especially with tempo. Although some aspects of swing may yield to mathematical analysis, the oversimplification presented in this article is just to simplified to have any real validity. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:09, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
