Everyone Needs Music

Searching through one of my favorite online music stores, I came across a top fender tuner at MF.  I didn’t have any idea what it was. First thought, oh like a fit bit, tracks your musical playing.

Wrong! LOL

It’s a vibration sensor for tuning your guitar. I was way off! 🙂

Pretty cool though. This would be good for the amateurs like me that have no idea what an out of tune guitar sounds like. This tool will show white on the LCD display when out of tune and green when tuned right. Even I could do that. 🙂

Good price too!

Tuning modes are:

  • guitar
  • Bass
  • Ukulele
  • Violin
  • Chromatic

It can be done in dark places and noisy ones. Who doesn’t love gadgets? 🙂

December Is Flying By

Christmas 2014 ouside front (A few years ago)

I do believe December is flying by way too fast! Hope everyone had a great Christmas. We did! All four kids plus the two older ones brought their loves to spend Christmas Day with us. 🙂

Our family is growing! For me that was the best gift, because I know sometimes we won’t all be able to. Life gets busy and people scatter.

I received some great gifts. I love all gifts, from a thought to an expensive one. I do believe the thought ones stay with you way more than an expensive one. 🙂 Though hubby did surprise me with an expensive one this year, a new fridge. The other one was leaking, ruining our floor. It is now in the garage for drinks and extra food. It came in handy for the holiday. 🙂 So far, that fridge is not leaking out there. Go figure! LOL

Now, that brings us to the next holiday, New Years!

I was spending time online looking at one of my favorite music stores, Guitar Center, and came across the blue woodpecker. The name caught my eye. I even chuckled a bit.  What a gorgeous microphone!

Picture came to my mind of singing on New Years with that microphone. Do you ever daydream? I have some doozies. If I was having a party, been awhile, this microphone would be fabulous for karaoke. Do you like to karaoke? I usually have to have a few beers in me before getting in front of a crowd. I do have a couple of kids that love to sing. They would love this.

Whatever your plans are for the New Years, stay safe, have fun, and best wishes for you in 2017! 🙂

How’s your shopping going? I have only bought a few gifts. Always tight on money this time of year. Need to start in January with putting money aside, but there is always something that comes up.

I love Christmas for the family get together the most. Gifts are just a fun added plus. I never want anyone to over spend that puts them in debt. We have always been a family that spends with in the budget allowed. Some Christmas pasts have been pretty slim but they gave us lots of great family moments, which one can not put a price tag on.

Merry Christmas to All! 🙂

Happy shopping! 🙂

Music Is Our Friend

Taking a look around one of my favorite online music stores, Musician’s Friend, I found the discount music equipment  under the open box gear category. Several great buys.

I particularly like the Xylophones!

I had a grade school music teacher that liked to play the Xylophone for us.

Loved that class!

He introduced us to several instruments and that is how we learned the making of music. There was a board game he had on his wall that was like the memory game only with music notes and such. It was fun to play and definitely did the trick to learn them.

Maybe if I asked Santa to bring me a xylophone for Christmas, I could learn to play one! 🙂

For now, I will close my eyes and remember the sounds. 🙂

What was your music class like? Do you think it still needs to be in the school’s curriculum?

I do.

Catch The Beat

The beat production software from Guitar center is a great item to have to put rhythm into your music. It has rhythmic music from all styles of music.

Examples:

  1. Pop
  2. Rock
  3. Techno
  4. etc.

Create the music you have dreamed of for years!

They say music eases anxiety! What a great fun way to do it! 🙂

The best part of this software, in my opinion, is it was inspired from the drum playing of the 80s and 90s! Yes, the best music ever! 🙂

There is a long list of features for this software. Very intriguing.

Check it out! Beat production software! 🙂

Do you play any instruments?

Dance, Music, Fun

In the beginning of my relationship with my hubby, we loved to go to dances that were held at the local Legion. It was a lot of fun. Yes, some drunk nights when we were younger. 🙂 I really loved dancing to the music. I have always loved to dance.

dance

In high school I was on the dance team and choreographed several of the routines throughout the four years I was on it. In fact, the crowds loved my routines and one they asked us to repeat so we did. Made me feel good. 🙂 Enough memory lane. lol

Back to the dances, the DJ they hired most of the time had a system that was a computer, monitor and of course the large speakers. It sounded great but can you imagine the time it took to set up. What happens if the computer decides to be weird? There goes your songs. There goes your money source for awhile.

music

Think back even further when the DJ had to haul around cassette tapes, records, and then CDs. Plus, the player that played them was usually bulky.

Now, there is a nifty little device called a cdj!  (Click the link to see this neat device)

The DJ can leave the computer and CDs at home! How cool! 🙂

If I DJ’ed, probably glad I don’t I would play 80s and 70s music over and over, I would invest in this nifty electronic!
