No, I don't think that works, sorry

Susan Storz | 416 comments Would "Skipping a Beat", count, as a "beat" can be a musical term?


Lisa (lbhick) | 540 comments Amanda, would you accept the word "ballad" as a musical term? I'd like to use the book The Ballad of Tom Dooley  A Novel (Appalachian Ballad) by Sharyn McCrumb The Ballad of Tom Dooley: A Novel

mstan | 742 comments Hello Amanda, would the word 'notes' work? I am thinking of reading Notes on a Scandal.


Jennifer W | 358 comments Will you take Bel Canto? Wikipedia lists bel canto as an Italian style of opera singing, and one of the characters is, in fact, an Italian opera singer.


Amanda Nelson | 425 comments Terri UK wrote: "Would clapping work as a musical term? I was looking to fit this book in Little Hands Clapping."

You know, I wasn't going to accept it but then I did a quick You Tube search and found this really impressive musical performance using nothing but claps: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcFyl8...

So yeah, I'll take clapping.

Bridge and jazz are both good


Paul (metshaft) | 96 comments ...or Jazz? Blue Like Jazz  Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality by Donald Miller ?


Paul (metshaft) | 96 comments does the musical term have to appear on the list? I want to use a book with "bridge" in the title.

Amanda Nelson | 425 comments Amanda B. wrote: "Nevermind I think I'll plug in The Mozart Conspiracy (Ben Hope #2) by Scott Mariani for option B instead."

You could use THE CHAMBER for "chamber music" if you want to. You can use any specific word in a musical phrase (except the articles).


Amanda B. | 115 comments Nevermind I think I'll plug in The Mozart Conspiracy (Ben Hope #2) by Scott Mariani for option B instead.


Amanda B. | 115 comments This might be stretching it but what about The Chamber using the glossery term "Chamber Music"
