I’m no fan of any pianist nor got the tickling nerves in my every fingers to do the keys of pianos. But seeing how Google doodles Bartolomeo Cristofori on his 360th birthday, I could somehow thought if there was no Bartolomeo Cristofori before, probably no good music to produce now.

But of course, I couldn’t blame my childhood nor my parents for not sending me to any piano school before because I know how pocket monster it was especially for us, for my parents, who were not that well-off to send us to those luxurious schools. I am just so happy now and satisfied with what I have reached as I could appreciate the beauty of piano-driven songs every time I hear music, sing any songs or even dance with the every beat that every keys give.
Anyway, thank you Google for honoring this day for us to remember Bartolome Cristofori on his 360th birthday.
I played drums before but I could say I still am a noobie for drum instruments. This means that aside from doing the basic drumming, I know nothing more than that especially the technical aspect of drums and other musical instruments.
In fact, I only knew one use of drum dial. It is to effectively tune any drums at any time.
I haven’t tried one myself but I, of course, seen one when we had a gig years back. And as mentioned, I only have seen it but I never had used it myself to any drums I played before. Because I was somehow afraid if I can’t make the most out of such drum dial, I just left all of those technical stuff to be done by most appropriate person. By that then, I am sure all will be well then with the drums.
I am not a musician; not even knew how to play guitars or making some good noise out of my fingers and pedaling feet. That is why when I was asked if I knew how to create a modtone effects out of some instruments, I frankly said, I have no idea how is it being done.
With my curiosity, I personally made an investigation of such modtone effects over the internet — I read forums and even listen to videos from YouTube.com and here below was what I got.
That’s pretty hard to do and really needs expertise, talents and skills in performing such thing to produce that modtone effects, I assume. Don’t you?
After listening and watching the video, I just told myself, music isn’t really for me. I will just try other stuff then.
We will be moving to a new house the soonest. And part of it is the setting up of new sound system at home. Actually, not just a sound system, but almost all of the interior designs, including the furniture and other stuff in the kitchen should be checked and set up first.

But since we still have some of those old home appliance and furniture, we will be just thinking for now on how to complete our audio visual set up. I wanted to buy qsc k10 at musicians friend, but M disagreed with me since he still having a functional speaker. Though it is a bit smaller than the one I found online, he still insisted to use the old one. And he even suggested to better buy other musical component which we don’t have yet rather replacing those old ones.

Maybe, we will first assess what we really needed to buy or not.
I just loved playing a harp lately and even thinking of having one like hohner harmonica from musicians friend.

As I always mention since then, I am not a music-lover nor having any musical talents. But since it’s summer and we don’t have classes, I am thinking of engaging myself in learning how to play harmonica.
Accordingly, rainsong guitars produce sounds that are distinctively rain-like and the music it provides is really different and unique.

I’ve just had a chance to talk to a musician colleague and he really agreed to what I said about rainsong guitars. He even suggested reliable shops where can I buy affordable yet quality guitars. I told him I don’t have plans to purchase one but I found the rainsong guitars guitar center — an online shop a good site to shop.
