Reblog: NAMM 2018 – meh

Another insight regarding NAMM 2018.

What I find particularly interesting is the self-acceptance near the start (“I’ve found my sound. I know that whatever gear I play, I will sound like me”) which I feel all good guitarists, and indeed musicians, reach at a certain point.

Don’t get me wrong, I love talking about gear and guitars, but for me, these are tools. My guitars are facilitators, helping me achieve my own sound in the most effective and hassle-free manner possible. As always, I’d be interested to hear your own experiences in this regard, so do get in touch!

Until next time!

How to practice effectively [video]

This is a short video from TED Talk on how to practice more effectively. It includes some useful tips & really interesting information based on what we know about the brain & how we learn tasks.

This ties-in with my previous blogs on rehearsal & my own (admittedly rather limited) research on music and the human brain [see previous posts]. Let me know what you think!

If the above video doesn’t work, here’s a link so you can access the short TED Talk video on YouTube.

Enjoy! xx

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Poster — reblogged from headfuzz by grimboid

I spotted this when browsing my WordPress reader and it was simply too beautiful not to share!

This poster encapsulates the real heart (as well as most memorable scene) from Steven Spielberg classic  E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, while incorrating John Williams’ main theme from the film.

Hearing even a brief snippet of the score is enough to make me think of the scene depicted in the poster below, and this image adds the typography of the written music into the background of the image itself. It’s a delightfully simple, yet incredibly effective idea which I absolutely love.

Anyway, enjoy this image, and may I recommend that you check out more of Grimboid’s work by clicking here.

The latest Movie Classics poster added to the collection today is yet another John Williams masterpiece. The theme from one of my favourite films of all time, E.T. – The Extra-Terrestrial. http://etsy.me/1MRTVRN
