Thread Name: WHAT IS THE 'HOOK'?
Subject: Turnarounds, fills, bass runs, hooks... Huh?????
CRS. Meant to add--

The turnaround? We have been calling it a tag line, is that wrong? Also, I think the REAL reason for them is so the singer can swallow spit. I know when we get a good gospel shout going on, breath is OK but spit builds up. (So sloppy to drool and sing. *G*) So depending on the way the phrasing of the chorus goes, we may add a little bit there to swallow.

Regarding thread creep-- see the subject line of this post, which I changed. That's all you need to do to make sure the thing comes up on a forum search if someone is looking.
