The focus of this book is beginners – particularly those who are having a hard time picking up the guitar.

  • how to read a guitar tab
  • basic chords to know
  • and many moreâ?¦..

Guitars have become more popular since the start of the 20th century. Many thanks to great guitarists like Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Brian May, Eric Clapton, and many others. Guitars are relevant in almost all genres of music; classical, folk, jazz, country, Brazilian, African, metal, etc.

The guitar is usually considered a solo instrument, howbeit, most times, it is played as an accompaniment because of the harmonious effect it has (because you can play chords as opposed to instruments like trumpet or saxophone where you can only play a single note at once).

The Light of Joy

by Silwa Munateyo

The Light of Joy is a unique combination of philosophical art and thought provoking prose. It is a project inspired in part by current leaders of alternative and imaginative approaches to investigations of reality. Periods of mindfullness meditation and waking dreams lead to the emotional states responsible for most of the images.

The subject is contextualised into a neocultural discourse that includes consciousness as a whole. Therefore, a number of narratives concerning the cultural paradigm of consensus may be discovered. If one examines the subdialectic paradigm of expression, one is faced with a choice: either reject postcultural textual theory or conclude that truth may be used to entrench elitist perceptions of consciousness.

Meditate on nothingness and never be disappointed.

Bellezza Senza Confini: Come Scoprire la Bellezza in Ogni Cosa ed Esprimere e Realizzare il Meglio di Sé Stessi Sempre (Italian Edition)

by ANDREA VIZZINI

Ti piacerebbe scoprire la “bellezza” in ogni cosa che ti circonda? Ognuno di noi, nel corso della propria quotidianità, è portato a focalizzarsi principalmente su tutto ciò che di più brutto e negativo lo circonda. Stiamo parlando di elementi che pian piano vanno inesorabilmente ad impattare sulla nostra essenza e vitalità, non permettendoci di vivere la nostra vita apprezzando la vera bellezza delle cose. Una cosa è certa: ciascuno di noi è portato a vivere secondo i modelli di pensiero che adotta. Pertanto, come ci dimostra Walt Disney, l’ambiente e l’educazione non limitano la nostra capacità di diventare ciò che desideriamo. A questo punto, una domanda sorge spontanea: “Esiste un segreto per attirare a sé la vera bellezza delle cose?”. In questo libro, ti fornirò i migliori strumenti al mondo per scoprire il bello in ogni cosa che ti circonda così da esprimere e realizzare il meglio di te stesso ogni singolo giorno.

IL VERO CONCETTO DI BELLEZZA

  • Qual è la vera definizione di bellezza.
  • L’importanza della consapevolezza per conoscere e affrontare i propri limiti.
  • Perché quello che veramente ci limita è ciò che non ci permette di sentirci belli dentro.

COME ACCETTARE DEFINITIVAMENTE I PROPRI LIMITI

  • In che modo il processo di imitazione ci mette in sintonia con la grandezza del proprio modello da seguire.
  • Perché credere in sé stessi finisce con l’essere determinato dalla nostra pratica quotidiana.
  • In che modo la passione ci permette di elevarci verso le vette dell’eccellenza.

COME VEDERE LA BELLEZZA IN OGNI COSA

  • Il vero concetto di consapevolezza.
  • In che modo le nostre convinzioni ci rendono ciò che realmente siamo.
  • Perché sostituire i modelli accettati di realtà con modelli nuovi porta a cambiamenti drastici.

COME AUMENTARE LA QUALITA’ DELLA PROPRIA VITA

  • Cosa succede nel momento in cui siamo in grado di scoprire la bellezza in ogni cosa.
  • Perché quando siamo felici nel presente, il nostro mondo interiore e quello esteriore entrano davvero in armonia.
  • Il segreto per essere veramente felici internamente ed esternamente.

COME MIGLIORARE IL PROPRIO STATO D’ANIMO

  • La tecnica davvero efficace per riprogrammare il subconscio.
  • Perché, se vogliamo cambiare il nostro modo di essere, dobbiamo innanzitutto modificare i nostri pensieri.
  • Come eliminare i vecchi meccanismi energetici limitanti e sabotanti.

AUTORE
Andrea Vizzini, nato in Sicilia nel 1949. Artista, pittore e scultore. Studioso delle tecniche artistiche dalla fotografia alla computer art, è stato tra gli iniziatori di alcuni movimenti che, tra gli anni sessanta e settanta – prima della Transavanguardia – si erano orientati verso un ritorno alla Pittura, contemporaneamente alle correnti concettuali.

Ha collaborato con i più autorevoli critici e scrittori Internazionali da Pierre Restany ad Achille Bonito Oliva, da Luciano Caramel a Klaus Honneff, da Alberto Moravia a Domenico Rea a Leonardo Sciascia ed altri ancora (vedi Andrea Vizzini Wikipedia).

The Economics of the Audiovisual Industry: Financing TV, Film and Web

by Mario La Torre

This book is open access under a CC BY licence.

Recent reductions in public funding for audiovisual products have led to dramatic changes in the industry. The lack of interaction between the industry and capital markets has made sourcing funds for audiovisual products especially difficult.

This book explains why the distance between the audiovisual and financial markets exists, and considers the perspective of both audiovisual companies and financial intermediaries. Providing a thorough overview of the audiovisual industry in three major categories (television, cinema and web), it analyses the financing behind each. The author adapts the traditional assessment methods to include exploitation rights, distribution deals and risk determinants ; he also proposes a pricing model for the audiovisual products demonstrating that prices and values in a industry of prototype goods do not depend solely on cost and revenue. The book also includes a methodology for analysing the economics of the sector, the different sales agreements between broadcasters and the distribution deals between distributors and independent producers. Finally, a description of the main financial products for private finance is provided, as well as an explanation of how public funds can act as leverage to catalyze private resources through the use of guarantee funds.

In The Economics of the Audiovisual Industry the author suggests that rather than relying on subsidized public support, the audiovisual industry should foster private-public partnerships and market dynamics to promote an alternative funding model based on a profitable and long-lasting connection between the audiovisual and financial markets. The valuation model, both for products and firms, proposed in this book are at the basis of this new approach.



Friday Night Jam: Sax, Hand Drums, Rock n Roll

by Nowick Gray

Sax, Hand Drums, Rock n Roll

Friday Night Jam is a kind of anecdotal, instructional how-to (and sometimes painful how-not-to) guide to group improvisation, based on the firsthand learning experiences of author and African drummer Nowick Gray in a weekly open jam in rural British Columbia, in the early 1990s.

African drumming was booming in popularity then but not well integrated into conventional Western music mixes. This chronicle conveys the challenge of merging diverse musical instruments, genres and personalities; of attempting to produce quality music in a venue that welcomes relative beginners, lifelong amateurs, and random drop-ins for the night. The elusive magic of group improvisation, so sensitive to the interplay of diverse factors, proves emblematic of all human relations.

The book offers advice to beginning drummers, or to longtime musicians who have not yet had the opportunity or courage to attempt improvisational collaboration with others. Nowick offers an experiential overview of the confluence and conflict of different musical styles and expectations: acoustic/electric, world beat/rock, drummers/guitarists, perfectionists/amateurs, safe/risk, stoned/straight, standards/improvisation, men/women, fifties/sixties, tight/free.

At the core of the journey is the learning of the limited individual ego, with its unique talents and limitations, to negotiate the free and structured spaces with others, to merge in the greater group striving for excellence and beyond, ecstatic union. In rendering this spirit and process, the words too can speak for themselves, players in the mix, jamming on the universal pulse.

Categories and subjects include: creative nonfiction, memoir, music instruction, jazz improvisation, drum circles, jamming, jam bands, African drumming, world beat, djembe.

Nowick Gray continued his study and practice of West African and Afro-Latin rhythms, instruments and styles, becoming an accomplished performer and teacher, while never losing the love of improvised music in eclectic combinations. He has produced three volumes of instructional rhythm studies, Roots Jam, with accompanying audio tracks, and a set of free djembe lessons available on YouTube. He still enjoys jamming whenever possible with the improvisational band Strange Moon. Nowick’s other writings are available from Amazon; or see http://nowickgray.com .

Innerviews – Music Without Borders

by Anil Prasad

Twenty-four of the world’s most renowned musicians share incredibly candid, in-depth thoughts on the joy and pain of the creative process, their careers and aspirations, conflicts and collaborations, and the realities of today’s music business in Innerviews: Music Without Borders, the first book by acclaimed music journalist Anil Prasad.

Artists featured in the book include some of the greatest names in rock, jazz, world music, hip-hop, and electronica: Jon Anderson, Bjork, Bill Bruford, Martin Carthy, Stanley Clarke, Chuck D, Ani DiFranco, Bela Fleck, Michael Hedges, Jonas Hellborg, Zakir Hussain, Leo Kottke, Bill Laswell, John McLaughlin, Noa, David Sylvian, Tangerine Dream, David Torn, Ralph Towner, McCoy Tyner, Eberhard Weber, Chris Whitley, Victor Wooten, and Joe Zawinul. Wooten contributes a foreword to the book. Some of the evocative topics explored include:

  • Bjork on the chaos of her creative process
  • Stanley Clarke on saying no to Miles Davis
  • Chuck D on whats wrong with hip-hop today
  • Ani DiFranco on propelling democracy through music
  • Bela Fleck on journeying to Africa to discover the roots of the banjo
  • Bill Laswell on the drama of producing difficult artists
  • John McLaughlin on turning the tables on the jazz police
  • McCoy Tyner on the deification of John Coltrane
  • Tangerine Dream on electronica transcending technology
  • Joe Zawinul on inventing the original hip-hop beat

Prasad established Innerviews, the Internet’s first and longest-running music magazine, in 1994. He is celebrated for his special ability to get his subjects to confide and reflect in ways they rarely do with other interviewers.

“Anil Prasad is like a great musician,” says Victor Wooten. “The way he expresses himself through his own art – his writing – causes readers to feel inspired, as if we’ve learned about ourselves, as well as the subject of the interview.”

“Prasad does splendid interviews with an amazing mix of musicians in Innerviews: Music Without Borders,” says Vijay Iyer. “He takes the artists work seriously and meets it on its own terms, which is a sign of true generosity on his part.”

Artistry in Bronze: The Greeks and Their Legacy XIXth International Congress on Ancient Bronzes

The papers in this volume derive from the proceedings of the nineteenth International Bronze Congress, held at the Getty Center and Villa in October 2015 in connection with the exhibition Power and Pathos: Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World. The study of large-scale ancient bronzes has long focused on aspects of technology and production. Analytical work of materials, processes, and techniques has significantly enriched our understanding of the medium. Most recently, the restoration history of bronzes has established itself as a distinct area of investigation. How does this scholarship bear on the understanding of bronzes within the wider history of ancient art? How do these technical data relate to our ideas of styles and development? How has the material itself affected ancient and modern perceptions of form, value, and status of works of art?
