Polaroid Gallery v.1.01 About Polaroid Gallery is a free, opensource flash gallery developed by myself, Christopher Einarsrud, in the year of 2006. I was originally going to use this for my online portfolio, but I ended up going for something completely different. I thought that it might come in handy for someone else, so I decided to release it here. After all, I did put some work into it and it would be a pity to see it all go to waste... How it works Stories Behind David Bowie's Songs Over six decades on from his debut record (“Liza Jane” by his first group, The King Bees), David Bowie is arguably the most vital musician of his generation. Aside from his daring sonic explorations (in a little over the last decade alone, there was the drums ’n’ bass of Earthling and the innovative concept art of Outside), Bowie has diversified to pursue other interests (as far back as 1972 he said, “I’m not content to be a rock ’n’ roll star all my life”). In recent years he’s been an Internet service provider and web host, journalist, wallpaper designer, photographer, painter, actor and one-man corporation (in 1997, he became the first pop star to offer himself as a share issue, with “Bowie Bonds”). Bowie left this earth on January 10 after an 18-month battle with cancer. It was just two days after his 69th birthday and the release of a new album, Blackstar, which immediately shot to the top of the iTunes charts. You’ve been making records for over 50 years.

Why Daytrotter Why Daytrotter? Well, when we started Daytrotter in the early spring of 2006 it was created as a place of discovery for music lovers and a hole-in-the-wall-of-the-Heartland haven for passionate and inspiring musicians criss-crossing and cross-crissing the country and the world, hoping to find open and sympathetic ears. We're proud to say that Daytrotter has been the lifeblood or the beginning for thousands and thousands of artists through the years and the Daytrotter community consists of a knitting together of people, art and the musical honey that our hearts are drawn to. We use our studio here in Rock Island, Illinois, to capture pure musical magic on a daily basis and make those moments -- these important documents of a day and and a time -- available to the world to pick through and hold dear when they find something that they can't help but love. Since the beginning and to this day, we have recorded over 2000 sessions, with multiple new sessions being taped every day.

How To Read Guitar Tab Guitar tab or tablature is a very popular method of notating guitar music. What makes tab so popular is that, once you get the hang of it, it is very easy to read. In order to understand tab, you need to visualize a guitar neck as if you are playing the guitar and looking down on the neck. Tab consists of 6 horizontal lines that represent the strings of the guitar. The thickest string being the bottom most line and the thinnest string being the topmost.

Find Music skip Not logged in Log In Search How to write a hit: structure The most common and accessible pop song format to evolve over the last 50 years is made up of the holy trinity of verse, chorus and middle 8. Referred to as ABABCBB, in practice, it goes like this: intro/verse1/chorus1/verse2/chorus2/middle 8/chorus 3/chorus out. With modern production tricks, this classic skeleton is beginning to evaporate into a simpler framework containing just a verse and a chorus, with variety being created by the sounds of the parts rather than the parts themselves being different. In other words, there's more sonic variety than musical variety. The use of filters, in particular, has encouraged repetition of parts that would otherwise become boring.
