An Example Of Indian Musical Instruments

If you have heard something about the musical instrument of India, then most probably, you are familiar with the kind of music that they have. India are most of the time have this passion when it comes to music. So it is not surprising that they have lots of instrumental instrument that they are using whenever they want to play it and have to unwind their mind with music that they would always wanted.

When you go to India, you will notice that this country is a country of diversity and is a rich of culture country. They are rich in culture in the sense that they are preserving all the things that are part of their history and their heritage. You can say that this country is a country with a traditional living but still contemporary. They are not left behind about the things that are happening in their surroundings and the things that are currently in the trend.

When it comes into their music, they have a passion into it. They are good in playing instruments that are good to hear. These instruments are divided into many categories depending on different types of classification. A significant classification is based on the mechanism used for producing sound under which instruments are divided into four basic categories. These categories are the strings, percussion, wind and brass. They are classified according to how they are being played.

One example of their musical instrument is the tabla. This instrument is a very popular percussion in India. It is consist of two drums called as the tabla and dagga. The tabla is the treble drum and is generally made of wood and the top is covered with stretched skin. The skin is wrapped around the wood frame with the help of leather strings called the wadi and the round wooden blocks called the gatta.

The tabla is about 11 inches long while the dagga is about 10 inches long. This is a good instrument that is commonly used by the Indians.

Secrets of Whiteboard Photography

Online Portfolios for photographers”>Never rewrite anything you can digitize. If you’ve ever been tasked with copying a full whiteboard after an intense brainstorming session, you know what I mean.

You’ve just finished participating in one of the most amazing brainstorming sessions of your career. The massive whiteboard, which covers an entire wall of the conference room, is covered with words, arrows, and diagrams. You’re about to rush from the room to begin putting these plans into action when your boss says to you, “Robertson! Would you please copy down these notes and circulate them to everyone who attended the meeting?”

Copy those notes?! Not even Leonardo Da Vinci could reproduce those drawings. Suddenly, an air of calm comes over you as you recall “Secrets of Whiteboard Photography” from Digital Photography Hacks. You pull your digital camera out from your backpack and go to work. Why rewrite something that’s already been written, when you can photograph it, save it as a .jpg file, and circulate it to anyone with a browser on their computer?

This hack will make more sense to you if you first understand how a camera sees the world. Most cameras are calibrated for capturing blue skies, green grass, and other middle tones. And, more often than not, your camera will try to convert anything on the extreme end of the exposure scale to those same middle tones. So the black cat becomes gray and the whiteboard becomes a murky beige color. So, job number one is to find your exposure compensation adjustment and set it to +1. That will tell your camera to overexpose the subject and make the whiteboard white, not gray. Then, turn up the room lights, open the shades, and turn off your camera’s built-in flash. Those little strobes might be fine for blinding your best friend at her birthday party, but they’re not so good for shooting whiteboards? unless, that is, you don’t care about reading the writing. Flashes tend to nuke white shiny surfaces.

How To Market Your Music Effectively (innovate)…. New ideas

Music is my first love, marketing is my strength.

I have managed to combine the two to help the third love in my life….PEOPLE. There are several products on the Internet that address these issues (Music & Marketing). Everyone sees themself as an authority or Guru of sorts. The only thing to do is sift through the maze of products and find the ideal one that fully address your needs. Bear in mind that the requirements from the industry will basically be the same but your approach and needs are different.

Marketing is a very important element in any equation. Many questions need to be addressed. The first thing that must be asked is ‘ is this the right market ? ‘ In the case of music, the important factors are ;

1. Is the lyrics hitting (are they relevant)

2. Is the music entertaining?

3. Is the artist appeal there?

4. Would this song be playable (i.e does it fit in with others being played? and I am not referring to Mastering but content-wise)

They are two obvious approaches to marketing music. Two directions are available.

1. SATISFYING your chosen MARKET and

2. Build to SATISFY A MARKET.

It might sound complicated but I assure you, it isn’t. You either create to satisfy a demand or adjust to meet a demand. This is the integral part of NICHE Marketing. The principle of Demand and Supply in action. Parts of any effective marketing plan.

What is important are the basics as they pertains to this article,

1. Production of product

2. Product Protection

3. Effective Music Submission practices

4. Marketing of self and Product

5. Niche Marketing (finding & establishing it).

Cross marketing ideas are springing up every day (Trial Pay for example). Systems where you pay for what you want and get what someone thinks you NEED. The extra money for getting both items is paid by the store and they benefit by having you as a loyal customer. This marketing system can be applied to almost any product but especially new music that requires a solid test market. Whats there to lose?

All these areas and more are addressed in these books. I have found them both informative and entertaining from an artist and label perspective. ne of the many things that plague an indie label is product placement and with the blossoming of the Internet, effective, common sense marketing is important. Being able to compete with ‘big brother’ is very important. If you don’t keep up in a race, you get left. These books attempt to ‘keep up’ and forge ahead by knowing the ins and outs. I have found these ebook very informative and quite helpful. Nobody has all the answers but knowing the rules sure does help. The music business can be a very cut-throat one. If you approach it as such and don’t judge and accept everything ‘verbatim’ then you are on your way. Being shrewd and knowledgeable is key.

I have just touched on the surface in providing what is basic without being in depth. Being repetitive is boring and I in no way intend to copy someone else’s ideas. These books merely add to my ideas and principles that I adhere to. I would not suggest it if I found it to be completely wrong and totally non factual. On the contrary it adds and further enhances my views and touches on a number of subjects that were not entirely within my realm. If ever you should need my opinion or services, I am available and can be found here or on LinkedIn or on the usual suspects.

Singer Treadle Sewing Machines Singer Sphinx Review

When Singer treadle sewing machines were introduced to the public, they became an instant hit. For the first time ever, women were able to use a sewing machine in the comfort of their own home. These vintage machines are still being used today. Some people collect Singer treadle sewing machines, including the popular Singer Sphinx. This machine was created around 1891. Newer models were released in 1905.

The Singer Sphinx sewing machine doesn’t use electricity. It is operated by a large rubber belt that extends from the large foot pedal to the balance wheel. This old model is table mounted and has sturdy metal construction. The fact that it will only do a straight stitch could be a disadvantage for some sewers. However, it does the best and neatest straight stitch you could ask for. You can even sew through denim and other heavy fabrics easily. Singer Sphinx features adjustable stitch length and width, drop-in bobbin, and adjustable presser foot pressure.

Many people have been collecting Singer Sphinx machines for some years. Their main interest has been in the rarity of model, collectability, value, and visual condition. In the past few years increasingly more sewers were interested in putting these old machines into regular service and using them on a constant basis. Singer Sphinx enjoys tremendous popularity among collectors and sewers alike due to its beautiful “sphinx” pattern. Most treadle machines available on the market could be fully operational with a new belt and oiling.

Singer Sphinx machines are over 90 years old and still working, which indicates their increased durability and solid construction. These popular machines have never faded away completely. Many models are still used in small professional work rooms, as well as in private sewing rooms. Some designers only use treadle and crank operated sewing machines to create earth friendly clothing and accessories. The Singer Sphinx has been a reliable, dependable sewing machine from the very beginning. These are fascinating old machines that can handle a wide range of fabrics.

If you are lucky enough to get your hands on an original manual, you will learn how to wind the bobbin and thread the needle. Accomplishing these tasks without the guidance of a manual can be difficult for beginners. Despite its simplicity, the Singer Sphinx represents a real challenge for new sewers. Once you understand how this machine works, you will be able to use it regularly.

Professional Photography 10 Character Traits Of A True Pro

The most professional and very successful photographers that I have worked with during my own twenty-year professional creative career have all shared certain character traits. By developing these traits yourself, you can fast-track your own photography career development.

1. The ideal ‘Perfect Photographer’ needs to have a powerhouse work ethic. They accomplish things in a day that ordinary mortals take weeks to do. They seem unstoppable. They know their time is valuable – irreplaceable actually – and don’t waste it watching TV or on Yahoo Messenger.

2. The Perfect Photographer is very easy to get along with, has great people skills, an excellent sense of humor and people naturally like working with them.

3. The Perfect Photographer is genuinely curious, interested and fascinated by their craft and loves innovation and inspiration from any source – a beginner or otherwise.

4. The Perfect Photographer maintains composure in stressful situations where others flounder and lose control of the situation and possibly themselves. In this sense, the Perfect Photographer inspires trust, confidence and belief because they are unflappable and unfazed by almost anything.

5. The Perfect Photographer is always experimenting with new approaches, new tricks, new lenses, new software etc. In short, they don’t become cynical, bored, lazy or complacent with their skill level and are always enthusiastic and eager to find out cool new stuff.

6. The Perfect Photographer has clarity and knows precisely what they are aiming for at the final stage of output, e.g. a giant billboard poster, at the earliest stages of input e.g. conceptual planning. Small modifications early on in a project can have absolutely massive implications for a project later. The Perfect Photographer is always aware of this and is flexibly adapting, responding and problem-solving at each stage with the optimum later final output always in mind.

7. The Perfect Photographer is completely generous and recognizes the fundamental importance of humbly giving back some of their accumulated wisdom, experience or even money. They are a giver, not a taker.

8. The Perfect Photographer knows how to say ‘no’ politely. It does not matter who the ‘no’ is to, they are excellent at doing it in an inclusive and polite way that actually makes the other party respect her or him more, instead of less.

9. The Perfect Photographer has integrity and can be depended on, no matter what. If the Perfect Photographer says that they will deliver something, they will. If they genuinely cannot due to unforeseen problems, they communicate constantly with the person that they have made the commitment to so that the situation is crystal clear to everyone involved.

10. They are not at all egotistical and are motivated by their humble love of the process, the craft, the art, the science, of what they do. They are not interested in fame (but know how to promote their work to maximum effect) or extravagant wealth (but get paid a fortune) but instead feel like a ‘servant’ to the art of photography – if that is not too corny.

Now, which of these qualities do you have and which do you need to develop (a lot?) more.

Twiztids spiderwebs The Lyrics To seven By Boondox The Meaning Behind Horror Raps Eerie Text

Its not news that horror rap is meant to be eerie. Its one of the few musical genres out there that can be understood by its name. That said, what else is there to songs like Twiztids “Spiderwebs” and ICPs “Riddlebox”? What about to words like those in Boondoxs “Seven” lyrics? Surely these song titles and lyrics (especially the lyrics to Boondoxs “Seven”) cant strictly be about what their titles imply. Lets take a closer look.

An excerpt from Twiztids “Spiderwebs”:

Im tangled in the spiderwebs and cant get out
Its like youre breakin my heart when you open your mouth
Its like youre so excited when youre bringin me down

Clearly, Twiztids “Spiderwebs” is about a girl and heartbreak. The Spiderwebs that Madrox and Monoxide Child are talking about in Twiztids “Spiderwebs” are a device used to describe just how tangled they feel in this messy relationship. Twiztids spiderwebs in this case dont really exist at all, which actually is a pretty common occurrence to stumble upon when analyzing horror rap songs.

For another example besides that of Twiztids “Spiderwebs”, lets examine ICPs “Riddlebox” song. If we were to look at the entire ICP Riddlebox album wed find many examples of this same occurrence, probably too many to discuss.

An excerpt from ICPs “Riddlebox”:

Turn the crank
And experience whats in store for you
Deep with the mighty Riddlebox

The ICP Riddlebox Jokers card has to do with determining the fate of your afterlife. Will Juggalos spend eternity in eternal peace up in heaven? Or will they spend it burning down below? ICPs Riddlebox will be the decider, and such is the core subject of this song. ICPs Riddlebox (both the album and song) wouldnt be worth much if they were about a simple Riddlebox, now would they? Because Twiztid doesnt have a mythology to back them up, the meaning of Twiztids “Spiderwebs” is less obvious to fans.

By turning the ICP Riddlebox into something with magical powers, theyve not only sparked interest amongst Juggalo listeners, but simultaneously turned the ICP Riddlebox into part of Insane Clown Posse and horror rap lore.

Finally, lets take a look at lyrics to a horror rap song that on the surface appear to not be eerie at all, lyrics to Boondoxs Seven.

A look at Boondoxs “Seven” lyrics:

A demon spawn child of a bastard son
Seven born at seven and the seventh child fathered one

The point of seven in the Boondoxs “Seven” lyrics isnt as obvious as the meaning of Twiztids “Spiderwebs.” Yes we can see that seven makes a repeated appearance in the chorus lyrics to Boondoxs “Seven,” but what is the significance of the number seven in Boondoxs “Seven” lyrics? Could the use of this number in Boondoxs “Seven” Lyrics be meant to display the character in this song is perfectly evil? The number 7 is used to mean luck and power around the world
