Favourite part to a band.

I'm fully aware that it's a combination of everything which makes the music sound good, but is there any part that you just like to hear more than anything else and really "makes" it for you? I guess I'm talking about instruments.

To answer my own, I'm torn between rare saxophone playings and the guitar.

    I adore it if they use strings or a classical choir.

    Drums. Especially double bass drumrolls.

    As a drummer it's gotta be drums!
    esp. Art Blakey whipping audiences into frenzy with his ride and hats.

    A good riff is essential but my favourite use of instruments in a pop song has got to be Penny Lane, it's got everything but it still sounds like a good pop song. Genius! (And I don't know any other pop songs with a picc part...)

    Strings or a strong bassline always make a song for me. Oh, and an a capella section, unless it's something like the kind of thing Lee from Blue does, and then it sucks.

    A good combination of everything as you say, is important. Skillful drumming, melodic riffing and strumming from guitars, addictive bassline, but I reckon the soul of the song comes from the vocals. Guns N' Roses songs wouldn't be the same without W. Axl Rose's voice.
