  1. Normally, a lead guitar, a bass guitar, drums and an extra musical instrument (often piano) would be in a rock band. I tried all the rhythmic patterns.

    • Thank you Hasnain. Have you answered the other questions on the blog? Please will you play some percussion rhythms along a rock track that you like? 😃👍

  2. The most posotive song was the final count down because I wish you were here is talking about love most likely a long distance relationship and what makes a rock song sad is when they talk about a love problem/issue or something else related to love makes it sad. Also, it can be other stuff about the singers personal life.
