The most mobile of all the orchestral groups are stringed instruments, so-called. “Quintet” or “quartet”. People very often use it in patriotic royalty free music. It offers great variety in shades, rich colors, and at the same time exceptionally audible range, that establishes it a first place within the symphony orchestra.

Great opportunities are presented by the string group and attracted the attention of many composers. Stringed instruments first started as solo instruments, and as popularity grew it gradually became an ensemble. This is best illustrated by looking at the works of Corelli (1653-1713), Marcello (1686-1739), Vivaldi (1686-1743), Bach (1685-1750), Handel (1685-1759).

There is extensive literature to illustrate the beauty of single string orchestra, and its major contribution in our time in terms of musical value. The first three instruments - violin, viola, and cello may be similar in shape and general form factor, but each has their own set of unique dynamics that complement each other, and the bass from the same family is no exception to this interesting musical tapestry.

The explanation below about violin parts applies to all stringed bowed instruments. The basis of the stringed instrument’s body, are two glued decks, the upper and lower (spruce and maple) are interconnected cases or shells. The upper deck has two cut-outs - “f-holes” that improve the acoustic quality of the instrument’s sound when it comes to patriotic royalty free music.

Corps formed into a convex shape, are supported and passed into the instrument (the upper deck), The wooden plate - “spring.” In addition to the spring within the housing between the upper and lower decks, are placed with a small stick for arching the deck and helps carry the tension of the stretched strings.

The main violin body again consists of two parts glued, and those main parts being the head and neck. While the strings are stretched over the violin neck, there is at the lower part of the body an embedded button that serves to secure the subgraph. The strings are fixed in the recesses under the bar and extend through the stand, which prevents swelling and splitting. It’s worth noting that the strings are made of different materials, and each have their own unique properties, that aid in the overall dynamics of this cherished instrument playing patriotic royalty free music.

Currently, the most common low sounds for violin are - sol, re. The viola on the other hand use - do and sol. The cello focuses on - do and sol, and for bass it si – mi and la).

The general rule for strings is that they should be entwined with gold thread (silver, aluminum, copper). The use of gut is preferred for medium and high sounds used gut strings. On violin, the string E is often made of steel.

To play on stringed instruments a bow is required, and that is a shaped stick with other material forming a ribbon stretched between its ends. A resin called Rosin is also used in the construction of quality bows and is another piece of the process that affords the sound quality, ability for continuous play, and a clear advantage over its brass counterpart for sustained tonal dynamics.

The Bow Group of related instruments is a full harmonic group: 1st violin - soprano 2nd Alto, - tenor violas, cellos and double basses - bass (double octave). Just in this section, the great composers - Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven (especially in the early symphonies) and others understood the primary role of strings.

Over time strings appear more developed as a result of violas, cellos, and double basses; and for example more frequent use of double notes, a variety of strokes, mutes, harmonics, and so on.

The development of strings in patriotic royalty free music from solo to accompaniment instrument has earned it’s right, and is reflected in the abundance of music that can be found throughout the world. It has an essential and equal role as any instrument section within an orchestra, and continually increase and decrease in popularity as moods change with the time.
