The Book speaks a lot with effective use of words. It would be one of the most inspiring books that you would ever read in your lifetime.  It is a short story, based on the life of a Seagull -'Jonathan' who , unlike other Seagulls didn't live to eat.

5 ESSENTIAL APPS FOR EVERY MUSICIAN-

 1. LYRICS GRABBER:
lyrics grabber is an amazing app that has the lyrics for almost every song .It is available on IOS and android . All you have to do is to install that app and simply (as usual) play your songs. Instantly after the song starts you get a notification saying '' lyrics available'' , and thats all!! you have the lyrics of that song. optionally , you can also browse all your songs and view lyrics without playing the song.


2. GUITAR TUNA :

Fender Squier Review

Image
Hey there ,
Guitarists,
Buying a Fender ?
Consider reading this before-

The Squierseries

 1.THE BULLET STRAT- This is Fender's most worked on , and cost effective series of guitar. It has an amazing bluesy sound along with its superb tremolo. My experience with this guitar has been satisfactory. Its drawback is that its fret board , only offers rosewood and hence loses its smoothness with a few years .Its tuners are equipped with fender's classic tuners which allow continuous playing for long hours.If you're buying of these ,buy the one with the SSS pick up . It has to be the best equipped guitar in its price. lets come to its appearance and looks........I'm not supposed to judge that .Am I? the picture explains it :)

 2.THE AFFINITY STRAT- I wouldn't recommend this one. The affinity series is known to have a couple of manufacturing defects . In playing, it has hardly one or two differences in the sound compared to the bullet strat. the new feature offered by this is t…

How to select the right guitar-

-Tips on selecting the right guitar for yourself-1) Know what kind of music you play- This doesn't matter while playing an acoustic. it all matters when you come to the electric. in the previous article you see your preferences.
2) Never go by brand name -There are thousands of guitars better than stratocasters and Les Pauls. Always play and buy the guitar you like and not the popular ones suggested by others.  That's called marketing a skill that Americans have mastered. well, its true if you saw that logo on a local guitar ...you might end up buying it
3)And finally the most important point-  Never ever buy a guitar ONLINE- Guitars are things that cannot be bought just by looking at them. You must play it, only then will you get the actual feel and sound of the guitar. Never go by suggestions by other because you're buying YOUR guitar. You can choose the best guitar only after playing it.                                                                    It may…

Fender vs Ibanez

Image
Unable to decide between fender and ibanez  ??
A very popularly asked question..........to buy an ibanez or a fender ? Well here is the answer to this - (according to me )
It depends on the type of music you play -  1) if you're into playing blues music Fender is the guitar for you.... 2) And if you're into rock & heavy metal .......nothing better than ibanez
Well yes, if you play both, blues and heavy metal ........be on the safe side buy ibanez.
The best way to get the perfect guitar for yourself is to go and play the guitar you want for a few minutes and have your opinion.......and you'll realize all comparison given on internet was useless.
Budget - when it comes to the budget fixers what can beat a fender stratocaster  ???? 
According to my experience Fender guitars are way more durable and can resist falls. I feel ( my thinking ) most of the ibanez guitars are copies of the fender stratocaster .
*with my experience i suggest fender....as they are way more durable and …

Innovation is another name for creative invention
In-built wall extension cord Now in the picture above we see an inbuilt wall extension cord. All of us have seen an electrical extension cord, and in-fact we also use it quite often for extending the power outlet to a longer reach. And we've also use power supply outlets for our daily needs . But what we have not seen is an INBUILT EXTENSION CORD which saves time as well as looks smart. So we did see just by combining two elements of our daily life we can form the third. Hands free umbrella Now the picture above explains another amazing innovation. We've seen umbrellas which are hand held, which restrict you from using mobile phones, eating things on the go, etc. But this is a simple wearable umbrella, which keeps your hand free ! Innovation consists of making the use of  the same object…
