TV radio?

Do you ever feel like all the music that’s popular right now sounds exactly the same? Maybe it’s time to give TV on the Radio a try.

It’s hard to describe TV on the Radio’s sound because they have so many different musical influences. They experiment with a lot of different genres, including soul, electro, punk, and this is the time to save on behringer amplifier. They’re doing something new with their music that sets them apart from all the other bands out there.

Classic Rock

There are plenty of good rock bands out there today, but not many of them can be called legends. When you think of rock n’ roll legends, you probably think of guys like Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison of the Doors, or Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant. All those guys with big talent and big reputations, whose era of rock n’ roll (the 1960s and 1970s) was so important and groundbreaking and I’m sure they buy fender guitar and that it’s what we call classic rock today.

But for some, the definition of classic rock is changing. Music from the 1980s or even the 1990s that is similar in style to the rock music of the 1960s and 70s is now sometimes labeled “classic rock,” too. I am not really into rock music. I actually prefer sentimental songs that have soothing effect.

Music and English

It’s probably not new to you that song’s lyrics can be a great listening exercise and practice. You can improve your comprehension and pronunciation and, also, learn a couple of new words and structures and you can even know who Alexander Reeds was! So over here, I would suggest a way to combine your interests in music with learning English.

One thing you can do is, have gap-filling exercises with song’s lyrics. You listen to the song and try and find the missing (erased) words in the lyrics.  It’s easy to find ready-to-use exercises of that type online.

But if you’re interested in a specific song you can’t find exercises for, you can either prepare one for yourself, get the lyrics and erase some of the words in it, or have a sort of dictation, where you listen and write what you hear and then check your work. It works!

Let’s play!

When you have a big exam to study for, it’s good to have all the help you can get. But not everyone agrees about what’s most helpful when it comes to study music.

Some people find all types of music distracting when they’re trying to study. Others like to have some background noise to help them focus. They might choose classical music to calm them, dance music to keep them energized, or punk to help them get their aggression out.

Maybe these people are familiar with roland amp at Guitar Center and in future they would like to buy one. Playing musical instrument is also kind of therapy and not only listens to it. When you play the instrument on your own, you can FEEL it and the satisfaction is totally different.

I am SHOUTING!!!

 Singers have been screaming for a long time. Think of Janis Joplin at her wildest, or James Brown’s raspy shouts. Although I’m not too familiar with these two names but I know their existence.

But those performers only screamed parts of songs at their most passionate moments. In the 1980s and ‘90s, heavy metal vocalists began to scream entire songs. Bands like Mayhem and At the Gates released albums on which all the vocals were screamed or growled.

Recently, some bands that play poppier music have begun to incorporate screaming. Avenged Sevenfold had the number one song in the US for a few weeks last year, and they use screaming vocals. Perhaps these people need edm software from musicians friend to make their work easier and the screaming process become easier 🙂

CAN YOU HEAR ME?!

White cords seem to be coming out of the ears of most young people these days. Just about everyone has an iPod or some sort of mp3 player. With portable music, anything we do has a soundtrack—walking downtown, doing homework, falling asleep.

But recently, scientists have been studying the causes of hearing loss. Some of them have concluded that listening to music with headphones can cause as much damage to the ears as a loud concert with the use of large speaker and bass guitar amps.

They also say that earbuds cause more damage than other types of headphones. But earbuds are so convenient and even fashionable these days. My myself would rather use earbuds compare with headphones.

Band Festival

The big music festival always seems like a good idea, right? You can see many popular bands in one weekend. For some, it’s the best weekend of the year. But for others the traffic and crowd can be exhausting.

Sasquatch is the biggest music festival near Portland. It’s named after a mythical forest beast (also called “big foot”) because it’s so big that it takes place a couple of hundred kilometers outside of town. But for me, I don’t like crowd and I will always refrain myself from going to such place even if you give me plastic trombone from musicians friend as a present. I just don’t like crowd!

CDs

Music-CDs

Do you remember the first time you listened to a CD? It was amazing, wasn’t it? The sound was so clear and you could skip right to the track you wanted to listen to, unlike a cassette tape. The storage is also so convenient where you can save on rack rails and store thousands of CDs.

It’s hard to believe that CDs are a thing of the past, but it’s about to be true. CD sales have gone down 30% in the last two years (according to my reading on the internet) and there’s no indication that they’re going to get any better, because downloading music is only getting more and more popular and people like me often prefer something which is FREE!

While a lot of artists and people in the industry are really excited about downloading, the death of the CD is really upsetting to a lot of people, particularly record companies and people who work in record stores. For those who are not really involved in music industry, do we actually feel it?

Music in life

islamic-music

No one wants to feel like they’ve entered a playpen when they go to a rock and roll show. A lot of bands play at bars where kids aren’t allowed so their older fans enjoy seeing them in peace. It’s usually easier for bands to make money at bars too because the alcohol sales generate so much income. But at the same time, their younger fans miss out entirely. It’s such a bummer when you’re a kid and a band you like plays a place you’re not old enough to get in to. Plus, if we want kids to grow up and become musicians, they have to be able to see live music at a young age and make them familiar with motion sound amp at musicians friend.

If you ask me, this will be definitely NOT my choice. I don’t want my kids to grow up and be a musician. They can be anything but not influencing people to be neglectful and forgetful about who they really are and their responsibility towards THE CREATOR. If they want to involve in religious music, YES I will support them.

Music

fender

Fender Modern Player Stratocasters at Musicians Friend. What’s that? For those who are not really into music especially music’s instrument, you might wondering about that. Well…just for your knowledge (and also me).

The Fender Stratocaster is a model of electric guitar designed in 1954 by Leo Fender, George Fullerton, and Freddie Tavares. The Fender Musical Instruments Corporation has manufactured the Stratocaster continuously from 1954 to the present. It is a double-cutaway guitar, with an extended top “horn” shape for balance. Along with the Gibson Les Paul, it is one of the most often copied electric guitar shapes. “Stratocaster” and “Strat” are trademark terms belonging to Fender.

Thanks Mr Wiki for the decent definition.
