www.guitarhabits Photo by Jsome1 Playing 3 notes per string exercises is something I do on a regular basis. I use them to warm up, to become a faster guitar player and to spice up my improvisation. 3 notes per string licks and scales are generally used for speed picking. Whenever you hear a guitar player playing these really fast terrifying licks, it’s probably a 3 notes per string lick. Paul Gilbert of Mr.Big is one of many great experts in this field. If you practice these exercises properly and often enough you will increase your speed. The 3 notes per string exercises are played using the alternate picking technique. Once you get the hang of it, it can become quite addictive, but be careful though. The one and only reason why these monster guitar players become so incredibly fast is that they practice long hours for days, weeks, months and years.

Sound Absorbing Acoustic Panels and Superchunk Bass Traps DIY Acoustic Room Treatments & Superchunk Corner Bass Traps Introduction: Achieving the best performance from your audio equipment is not possible until you take the last step to build acoustic treatments into your room: acoustic panels and superchunk style bass traps. How do you know if your room needs acoustic treatments? So how do you get rid of the echo? The point is that sound produced by your speakers should not bounce off of the walls, the floor, or the ceiling before reaching your ears. Several different types of acoustic treatments have been built into my theater room to help control unwanted sound reflections. For more detailed and technical reading about room acoustics and treatments, have a look at Ethan Winer's web page. Curtains & Ceiling Tiles: In the image below, you can see two different forms of acoustic treatments that have been installed in the theater. The Dart tiles are really great - they even have an unexpected benefit for my theater room.

Thinking inside the Box: a complete EQ tutorial - ContentsThis article was originally written and published on in 2003. Part One: Intro To begin: an anecdote. I started making music with Impulse Tracker. Slowly I came to realise the problem. EQ and compression are simply the two most important tools in music production. Think of it this way. My mistake - and, I think, the mistake made by many learning producers - was to be tempted by the more exciting task of choosing the colour schemes and leather sofas, when my walls could be knocked down by a sneeze and my roof was made of paper. Hence this tutorial. Now I could simply do a lightning quick tutorial on compression - I could say, for example, "for basslines it's best to compress at a ratio of 3:1, threshold -6db" or whatever (that's a totally fictional example by the way). My central concept is that producers in the digital domain are effectively working inside a box. A word of warning. Anyway - enough disclaimers...

D/A and A/D | Digital Show and Tell (Monty Montgomery @ SacredGeometryOfMusic The Sacred Geometry Of Music by Andrew Lorimer Music uses the laws of vibration to manifest aurally what exists at the center of everything. Into our reality springs a non-visual harmonic law that is universal. The notes and intervals of music speak directly to the chakra centers and causes them to vibrate in harmony to the vibration of a string or vocal chords, speakers moving through the air, or the sound of someone’s lips making a farting noise through a metal tube. Clock Harmonisphere The mathematics of the harmonisphere are amazing. When we measure the same chords on the harmonisphere, the seven chords have the same mirrored combinations as the piano:

Trevor Cox Trevor Cox is a British academic and science communicator, a Senior Media fellow for EPSRC, and was President of the Institute of Acoustics for the 2010-12 period. Academia[edit] Cox holds a degree in Physics and a PhD in Acoustics. He entered the field of acoustics because of an interest in music and his science background. He has been an academic in Acoustics Department at the University of Salford since 1995 and currently holds the position of Professor of Acoustic Engineering. Cox is fascinated by room acoustics, and how places can be designed for intelligible speech (for example, classrooms) and beautiful music (for example, auditoria). He uses both qualitative methods (focus groups, interviews, sound-walks) and quantitative methods (perceptual testing in laboratories and over the Internet) to explore responses to sounds from products (such as washing machines), in outdoor spaces (such as cities) and various sound types (such as horrible sounds).

- Tracking : Resource Library and More Information Look here for articles on applied recording techniques and mic placement. It all starts here! Acoustic Guitar Tracking the acoustic guitar is a huge subject, because so much contributes to the final sound—player, instrument, room acoustics, mic choice and placement, effects, and more. Electric Guitar The electric guitar is the central sound of rock music, and has influenced everything from blues and country to electronica. Bass Recording the bass can be as straightforward as a simple DI to the console or as complex as multiple mics on an acoustic bass fiddle or giant amp stack. Other Guitars The archtop, the dobro, the parlor guitar, the pedal steel—scary to the newcomer, each with its own challenges. Drums & Percussion Miking drums is an art form. Vocals The human voice is the most recognizable sound to the human brain. Horns & Woodwinds Whether you're recording jazz, jump blues, R&B, or whatever, a clear and present woodwind track or a slamming horn section can make your arrangement fly.
