Hi everybody! I'm new to the forum, and I have a question that I'm hoping somebody can help me out with.

I was playing a piece the other day, and I ran across a notation that I didn't understand. It appeared to be a typical glissando, but rather than having the text "gliss." typed above it, it had the text "rip." Has anyone ever seen this before, and do you know what it stands for and means?

As I understand jazz terminology, a rip is played at the last instant before the next note. A gliss would extend all the way through the space from one note to the next. Some of you jazzers might be able to give a better answer.

Thanks, maintube!
So basically, they're the same (conceptually at least - they both require you to play all the notes between two given notes in a relatively short time). Gliss is more spread out, while Rip is more like you're "ripping" them all off at the last moment.
Do you know what Rip. stands for - what is the full (Italian, I suppose) name for that technique? Or is it as simple as "Rip means 'rip' all the notes off as fast as you can"?

As far as I know "rip" means "rip". It's in jazz terminology.
there is no Italian connection.

I am trying to have knowledge on music education and it forms with broad ways. The following sources are provided through rushessay puzzles and other history reports. All would be done through these messages and dragon reports.
