How to name short phrases played to make "frame" for vocal solo?

For example "Cambio Dolor" (original, performed by Natalia Oreiro) song, there are two guitars playing in verse: rythm & the phrases I am talking about. How to name them?

I guess it is not the bridge, is it? The bridge should be between solid parts e.g.: verse and chorus, right?

  • yes, bridge would be wrong. it is what you said: rather between chorus and verse – Albrecht Hügli Jan 22 at 9:34

Basic arranging technique. Someone has the tune, someone else fills in the gap. IN this song sometimes it's the brass, sometimes a guitar.

'Fills'. 'Fill-ins'. Fill (music) wikipedia link

  • fill ins I have been thinking of vote up – Albrecht Hügli Jan 22 at 15:21

There was a similar question the other day about the piano playing around the melody between the phrases of the vocal soloist:

I'd name this "paraphrasing". look up wiki paraphrase wiki English or paraphrase musik wiki de

I didn't find a link in English paraphrase music

and I don't know whether there exists another term than soloing.

Paraphrasing Defined We've all watched television shows or heard news stories we wanted to tell others about. We may have told our friends, our family, or our coworkers about what happened, how it happened, and why it happened. We recounted the storyline, the main characters, the events, and important points using our own words. This is paraphrasing - using your own words to express someone else's message or ideas. In a paraphrase, the ideas and meaning of the original source must be maintained; the main ideas need to come through, but the wording has to be your own.

    What I've found about "paraphrase music" it is a cover-like music: musicterms.artopium.com/p/Paraphrase.htm – Ivan Gerasimenko Jan 22 at 13:42

  • @AlbrechtHügli - That quote you used would fit all the paraphrases I have listened to, such as Liszt's paraphrases of others' works and Gottschalk's "The Union". Note that none of them have the original playing at the same time. – Dekkadeci Jan 22 at 15:14
  • that's why I say "paraphrasing" (en paranthèse). the paraphrases in music is what you describe, as well as a bridge is somewhat different. It is not the first time that a word has been adapted for something new or different. we two are most competent to do this. but this "thing" here has already been used by Bach. we will look up and find out what it has been called there. ;) youtube.com/watch?v=-8g-9zXv1O8 as I mentioned Bach I was just thinking of this! look up 6:15 – Albrecht Hügli Jan 22 at 15:26
  • the Solo-Aria starts at 7:13. the oboe is not only echoing, it is not only filling, it is "paraphrasing". I listen to sometimes to an music hour in the radio, where they discuss 5 recordings of the same music composition. I'm pretty sure they use there the term paraphrasing, which I've known from psychology and psychiatric counseling techniques (Carl Rogers). and it fits quite well for what is asked here. – Albrecht Hügli Jan 22 at 15:40
