One of the most played musical instruments is the guitar. Not so long ago, guitars have been created. Then and there we knew that our lives would change forever. Weird as it may seem, the early strings of guitar were made of animal intestine! Ack! So much more than that, as the time progresses, new innovations led to the development of high-end guitars (now available at http://www.guitarcenter.com).
The history of guitar teaches us that over the course time, the human mind really does improves almost all things here on earth- that is to help ease and make our lives even more convenient.
Indeed, the advent of high technology has put all of us in the advantage point. It has made our lives a lot easier and more convenient. We can now do things that people living in the previous era deemed impossible to achieve. We can easily communicate and access information whenever we like. From the most basic of inquiries such as finding the best music stores i.e. wwbw music instruments store; to the most complex of google searches.
Truly, the internet and social media’s emergence have greatly influenced and changed our way of life. However, these media can as well be very destructive. Cyber crime and online issues are rampant in this field, and years in prison await for those who abuse technology. Unfortunately, those who recklessly use the internet and social media for ill purposes are very elusive. Some are caught while some remain hidden. Therefore, one should be careful in using the internet and social media. Constant vigilance is the key.
My childhood dream of starting my own band—a pop-rock band that is—clung to me up to my adolescent years. I have always carried the idea of performing live onstage in vast arenas around the world with my fellow band mates. Geared with the best of musical instruments such as electric guitars, bass, drums, and a complete set of amplifiers such as Bogner alchemist, we would definitely captivate countries around the globe with our music.

I can almost see the image of my band on the covers of our very own record-breaking albums filled with various pop-rock songs to top the charts.
On the spur of the moment, I have thought why not make this a reality? Well, it won’t be that easy. But I think, here is how.
First, you should start to recruit members. Collaborate with them and develop a friendship. Remember, this will not be a one-man show, work as a team.
Second, pick your instruments and assign who plays what—do not forget the vocalist, bassist, guitarist, etc. Those are the essentials.
Third, rock on. Compose and create music. Create art. Be the best you have always wanted to be. You are now one step closer to your dreams, show them!
I have always been a massive fan of bands. Panic! At the Disco, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, you name it.
These bands and their meaningful songs bring out the inner emo in me. The different lyrics of their songs are beautifully knit masterpieces, which I can fully relate with.
Music offers me a different kind of therapy; it is something that soothes every inch of my system. As a fan girl, who is trapped in this eccentric world of emo bands, there is one problem I have, however. Ironic as it may seem but my musical ability does not extend much to what is considered the best.
Unfortunately, I do not even know how to play any musical instruments ― be it a guitar or a Yamaha PSR keyboard! I know, a pity, right?
But hey, it is not too late. For those die-hard fans that have the same problem as mine, we can still learn. It is not that easy but with a little patience and a determination, who knows, we could be experts and form the next rising band this world will ever know.
Holiday season is just around the corner and gift-giving is one thing that every child and child-at-hearts are excited for. Of course, that includes me as well. Although malls and other establishments are still hyped for the Halloween, I am getting really more excited with the holidays then.In fact, as early as now, I am already thinking and trying to complete my list for gifts to share. I also tried figuring out where is the nearest guitar center that is accessible from our new abode since I plan to buy my little man a new set of kiddie guitars or, perhaps, a drum set instead.
Sad to know, the guitar center is obviously far from here and I still need to transport half an hour. It’s alright. At least I have known where to go when I need to get one.
Moreover, going back to my list, I might have this completed after the Halloween since we will be preparing for the trick or treat events that our little man will be joining.
It’s first day of fall today, September 22, 2016, Thursday, based on the Eastern Timezone. But off course, living in a Pacific timezone, we only have two seasons, the wet and dry. Obviously, we can not enjoy the changes in seasons, the 4 seasons every year.
So this first day of fall 2016, as with my friends abroad both online and offline who are enjoying today’s great day, I just want to sing with you all the song You’ve got a friend. Maybe you’ll ask me why, but this is because the lyrics mentioned the four seasons. But more of that, is the idea that whatever the season would be, and even we are miles away from each other, we still are connected by heart we always can depend one another as we always have something to lean on called a friend.
I, myself, could not contain my emotions in me so I decided to try the song in our newly bought karaoke set. I have not fully assembled our system yet because I have not purchased a speaker and an amplifier. The speaker and amplifier set that I like most are those like from the musiciansfriend.com crown amplifiers and speaker. I have already checked and compared brands from one to another, considering their prices and their physical look to fit in my home video and audio interior designing. But at least, of I have here can still cater my moments in singing out my emotions.
I am not a singer nor I know how to play the guitar. But seeing my little one smoothly and slowly loving to play guitar toys, singing as well as dancing, I guess I should need to look for the best guitars from the best guitar brands now.
I sported for some online but undeniably, those are costly and it’s not worth a penny yet for me since my son is still too young to have those expensive one. I’ve also tried reading and fetching some ideas from forums online. One of them mentioned Les Paul Studio Guitars and I didn’t hesitate to look for it. Other quality cheap brands and specific stores to catch those were also mentioned.
But as I have mentioned earlier, maybe if my little man will really engage himself on guitar playing, I will sure to grab the best quality guitar brand he would love to have. But as of the moment, I will just have him a toy guitar first.
It is just very recently that I have known about Eurovision when one of my friends mentioned this singing contest to me. I was a bit hesitant to follow this contest online since I have not heard about this from the local television or any social media ads.
I have witnessed online some portions of the awarding ceremony but it was just a replay from those uploaded or shared clips online. The overall event was great. But what caught my attention most was their band which really performed well. Perhaps the reason why I also assume that those talented individuals were also using extraordinary quality sound and music equipment such as the MXR pedals for those drum sets. Not to mention also are those guitars that were of different tunes, which were extravagantly produce perfectly-pitched music.
Anyway, the winner for this year’s Eurovision is Ukraine followed by Australia and Russia. Congratulations to you guys and to all other winners.
