Take college and university courses online completely free In recent years massive open online courses (MOOCs) have become a trend in online education. The term was coined in 2008 by David Cormier, manager of web communications and innovations at the University of Prince Edward Island. The first MOOC was created the previous year, at Utah State University. Today, there are hundreds of thousands of courses available online at no cost. You can study anything from business to zoology in your own home at no cost. MOOCs are designed like college courses but are available to anyone anywhere in the world, at no cost. Coursera is perhaps the most well-known of the online education facilitators. EdX is another non-profit course site created by founding partners Harvard and MIT and based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. MIT has their own open courseware, where most of the materials used in the teaching of almost all of MIT's subjects are available on the Web, free of charge. European institutions are also getting in on the act.

Simon Fox | DADGAD | Online Book | Acoustic Guitar | Fingerstyle | Celtic | Bluegrass | Instructional | Tablature Most guitarists are familiar with the use of left-hand techniques such as hammers, pull offs and slides. These basic ideas can be used in certain ways to recreate the sounds of Celtic instruments such as pipes and fiddles. In this context the techniques are often called “ornaments”. The first set of exercises shows how a fast triplet can be played with very rapid pull offs, ending on the open top D string. In exercise 4.1 each measure begins with two hammer ons. Exercise 4.1. The next example shows exactly the same principle on the open A string. Exercise 4.2. The pinky finger is very useful in these riffs, though a little stretching is needed. This example shows the same roll technique played in 2/4 producing a more striking rhythm. Exercise 4.3. The next example demonstrates a different ornament achieved with a single grace note. Exercise 4.4. Exercise 4.5.

Scaricare musica gratis da internet senza programmi[1] | Il Bloggazzo Perchè installare programmi come Emule o Bittorent, per scaricare musica gratis, quando la si può tranquillamente trovare in internet, e con minori sforzi e sacrifici? Potrebbe essere questo, in estrema sintesi, il motto pubblicitario del presente articolo. Ed in effetti, un fondo di verità c'è in tutto ciò. Avevamo già visto, ad esempio, come Come scaricare Video e Musica da Youtube, ma le opportunità sono davvero tante, ma non si esauriscono con questi sopracitati esempi. E così, visto che mi piace condividere con voi quello che scopro, ecco ad elencarvi alcuni siti di questo genere (in costante aggiornamento). MP3Skull è un’applicazione web gratuita che permette di ascoltare e scaricare musica gratis dal web e di essere sicuri che sia di buona qualità audio e che non contenga virus come capita a volte scaricando dalle reti P2P. Un sito che si presenta con un'interfaccia un po' più grezza degli altri diretti concorrenti, anche se il funzionamento è più o meno simile.

Guitar Wood FAQ - Wood Types & Tones Quick Jump: Body Woods | Body Tops | Neck | Fretboard | Extended Range | Neck Thru Body Guitar Wood Types & Tones FAQ by Frank Falbo for jemsite.com » Discuss on the forum here last updated 3/8/2004 Body Woods Basswood: Basswood is a soft wood with tight grains. Production notes: Japanese factories like Ibanez seem to get a tan colored, more uniform Basswood while other Asian factories get a more flawed yellowish basswood. Alder: Alder is light in weight with soft tight pores like Basswood. Production notes: Not much difference between factories, production. Swamp Ash: Not to be confused with Northern “Hard Ash” Swamp Ash has huge, open pores with hard and soft layers within each ring of the tree. Production notes: An Asian mass produced factory guitar should be checked for weight, and openness of grain if the finish allows. Mahogany: Open grained with large pores, Mahogany has a more uniform grain pattern and density than Swamp Ash. Production notes: Again watch for heavy pieces.

The Top 11 Obscure Nu-Metal Albums Ever Made JNCOs: Coming soon (again) to a mall near you. As we predicted years ago, the Nu-Metal Revival Apocalypse is in full swing! Limp Bizkit are selling out large clubs (and people are no longer ashamed to say they went to the show… and enjoyed it). Revolver’s “Ten Nu-Metal Albums You Need to Own” list made some waves a few weeks ago, although it was a completely predictable list of (mostly) sucky bands and their (mostly) sucky albums (I much prefer Axl’s own list of ten essential nu-metal albums, which hits the nail on the head). Even third-tier nu-metal bands like Alien Ant Farm are generating renewed interest in today’s nostalgic climate. Here’s the thing, though: not ALL nu-metal sucked. Because if you’re gonna jock that pair of JNCOs you should really know your shit beyond the entry-level stuff everyone loves, behold: the top eleven obscure nu-metal albums. 11. 10. 9. 8. 7. What a weird fucking album, and what a weird fucking band! 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1.
