Hey all, been around the forums for a while but just registered. I'm hoping someone can help me with this question, it's been bugging me forever.. I know a lot of SX's song borrow from classical compositions, and I also know that Romeo composes a lot of the orchestration himself. What I wanted to know is the technical term for a certain technique that is used quite a lot in SX songs. The technique is usually a harmony on guitar or vocals, where two notes are held and one of them is lowered by a half step. I'm not sure if we have too many musicians or theorists around here, but it would be much appreciated if anyone could point me in the right direction. Examples of this are: A Fool's Paradise: 4:22 - 4:25 Set the World on Fire: Chorus part, like at 2:59 Communion and the Oracle: 4:05 - 4:09 I know there are a lot more examples, but that should give the general idea.
