Rubik's New Challenge -

Image
Puzzles that changed the world :-Hey there friends ! I happened to experience the Rubik's revolution taking place around me. Every alternate person on the road is equipped with the most brain-teasing puzzles. Since childhood, the Rubik's cube has fascinated me and I conquered it. The legendary - 'Rubik's cube' was created by Erno Rubik, who is a hungarian inventor. At 70 he still continues the ultimate legacy. His latest invention was the void cube as I have mentioned below. https://plus.google.com/u/0/+ErnoRubik/posts Do check out his profile and jaw dropping inventions. Lets know a little more in detail about some of his masterpieces.

How the world changes in 3 blinks .....

It all started with one of my friends, Manas, instructed me to stay back in the class, during the lunch break. I expected that he would come up with a new type of puzzle (95% , a Rubiks cube) and ask me to solve it or maybe talk about my blog or possibly about the guitar...........

Now a GRE student would term this ' My fall in the cosmos' . The next three blinks were hard to understand. My eyes were asking for feedback, i just couldn't understand what the hell was going on !

In my first blink I saw Manas, sitting on his seat with his tiffin in his hand, being put for auction in open air . He probably meant to tell me exclaiming ' Hey come here, ' I've got pizza !'. So ?
Now the next moment I felt as if the entire class had been suffering a f…

"It's what you play, not what you play it with "

1. Instrument does not matter


"It's what you play, not what you play it with "
Instrument is the last part of playing guitar. To master the art is important. Buying a Les Paul at an early stage would be a waste of money. The fact that anything played on the electric sounds good is what prevents guitarists from mastering the art. So play the best with whichever guitar you have and aim high !
2. Practice in a group

Teamwork,.....hmm......Playing a song with a guitar and singing all alone is an easy job, but coordinating with the entire band and jamming on the song is where you real guitar skills come live. You get to learn lot more from others in the band, compared to what you learn by yourself. In this way by playing with others you mig…
