Girl Groups
Songs written by young white songwriters and belong strictly to the rock era
Sound of vocals often more distinct than the style of the song
Race is not a factor
Vocal group is exclusively female
The lyrics do not relate to race (ex. Will you still love me tomorrow?)
Syncopations: accents that come between the beats of a regular rhythm, rather
than with them
Trademarks of 60's Rock:
Straightforward rock rhythm
Signature guitar riff to open the song and serve as an instrumental refrain
A bass line that moves in a free rhythm, rather than a walking pattern or
other narrowly defined role
