Stevie Wonder: Where I’m Coming From and For Once In My Life

Stevie Wonder: Where I’m Coming From and For Once In My Life

Entertainment, Music
The late 1960s had seen a growing number of 'personal' albums: records written, performed and produced by the artists themselves. By 1970 the trend had yet to infiltrate Motown, which was sticking to the same album pattern it had throughout its existence - a couple of hit singles, filled out with numerous covers of popular songs and stock songs culled from the Jobete archives. Stevie Wonder had been growing in ambition since 1968's For Once In My Life, and yearned to create an album free of Motown's interference. With his 21st birthday approaching and with it the ability to void his contract with the company, Berry Gordy allowed Stevie to produce his own record. This, along with Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, were the first albums from Motown which were allowed such a privilege. ...

How to tune guitar by ear

Entertainment
Many guitarists are horrified at the thought of trying to tune their guitar without the use of an electronic tuner. After all, they went pro for two reasons: to get hot dates and to hire a guitar tech. But not only can tuning a guitar by ear improve playing, it can help on the occasion when a string goes out in midsong. With a little practice, it's a great skill not just for tuning a guitar but for tuning ears. Something to Tune to First, find something to tune to -- a piano, keyboard, pitchpipe, tuning fork, or even a harmonica. For a standard tuning in E major, start with the A string and strike an A note below middle C on the keyboard, or blow an A note on the pitch pipe. With a diatonic harmonica in A major, blow into the 4th hole. Pluck the open A string and listen c...
Guitar Hero and Rock Band Guitar player tips

Guitar Hero and Rock Band Guitar player tips

Entertainment
Transitioning from the medium to hard difficulty can be one of the hardest things for a Guitar Hero or Rock Band guitar player to do. The initial switch from easy to medium is downright simple by comparison, most beginning players can adapt from three to four buttons fairly quickly. The real challenge starts when going from the four button setup of medium to the much more difficult five button configuration of the hard and expert difficulties. It’s easy to get confused when the game requires players to push multiple buttons with the same finger. The transition from medium to hard in Rock Band and Guitar Hero is perhaps one of the most difficult in the music game genre. Adapt to the Orange Button Some players insist on using their pinkie finger to press both the blue and orange...
