Go and be pretty, Sara HassleMe Know Every Note on the Guitar in 9 Days Knowing every note on the guitar is a challenge unique to the instrument. A saxophone has only one way to finger each note, while a guitar usually has a few different strings and four fingers to choose from. String a few notes together and the permutations of how to play them will wreck your brain. Pianists have a similar problem with ten available digits, but you can memorize the notes on a keyboard in a matter of minutes; the same pattern of white and black keys repeats every octave. The challenge with navigating the guitar fretboard is its two-dimensional layout. Why Know the Whole Fretboard? If you don’t know every single note on the guitar cold, without hesitation, then I highly recommend taking a little time to get that under your belt. The primary advantage to knowing every note on the fretboard is in creation. If you haven’t started playing yet, come back to this after you’ve learned some music. Day 1: Open Strings Know your open strings like you know your alphabet. Conclusion

Kitchen Pantry Reveal ! I {finally} completed my pantry makeover! I mentioned in June {wow it took me a while to finish this} that I was going to redo my kitchen pantry here. I ripped out the old shelves, painted, stenciled, installed new shelves, and organized all my goods. Here's a before/after shot: I will definitely be writing a couple more posts about the project explaining the steps... but for now I just want to sit back and show off my final reveal! The organization makes me so happy! I even took out a shelf {originally had 5, now 4} but since everything is organized and has its own spot, I ended up with way more room! I'm even able to store my most frequently used craft supplies, my camera and its accessories so they're always in arms reach. The containers are from Home Goods for $7 and I used some twine to add a piece of slate I had spray painted with chalkboard paint to label what's inside. The gorgeous stencil I used is from Cutting Edge Stencils. Everything has a home... {Happy Dance}! One last look:

Printable Grocery Shopping List Template | Ellinée journal | DIY Blog For Christmas 2010 I designed and padded grocery lists as gifts for my friends and family and they were a hit! I still use mine religiously (it’s clipped to the refrigerator for easy access). Seriously, I’d be lost without it now. Well, spring is here and I have updated my grocery list with springy artwork and provided it for you as a fabulous freebie.

{Anthropologie Knockoff} Multitude Headbands I was browsing around Anthropologie’s website last night and came across these elastic multitude headbands that are $15.00 for a 4 pack. From the reviews on the site it sounds like people love them. Here’s the thing…these are the EASIEST headbands to make!! The elastic is called Fold Over Elastic. Cut the elastic into 18-19 inch lengths depending on how tight you want the headband and the size of the person you are making the head band for. Then, tie a knot with the 2 ends. These headbands are great for little kids too because they are so soft that they can keep their hair back without bothering them. What is your favorite headband?

Better Guitar - Guitar Songs You Should Learn. There are certain songs that every guitar player should try to learn. Either they are commonly requested or they have cool guitar parts that will expand your playing skills. I am going to list songs in several styles of music and explain why I think they should be add to your “play list.” Obviously, this type of list won’t ever be comprehensive, and no doubt, many will disagree with my choices — and find many ommissions. This is a huge list and will take most players years to complete (if ever.) Johnny B.
