Buying accessories for your musical instruments such as drum sticks need to be researched also on who makes the best accessories that is good quality, and last for a long time. Maybe some of you would just probably buy anything that is in the market, or choose the cheapest accessories. Well, if you look at online, you will find that there are lots of manufacturers out there, but I would recommend to do some reading first before hitting the checkout button.
Videoke and Karaoke is a common thing to do in Philippines, whenever there is a party or a get together with friends and colleagues. You can never have a party without this, cause its the only thing that will keep the party going and fun. Even here in US, every time Filipinos gets together, there is always a videoke. I dont participate in videoke cause I am shy and I don’t have that beautiful voice. I was thinking of getting a recording microphone like a MXL Desktop Recording Kit, so I can record my voice in the computer, to hear how bad I sing. lol. Well, I just hope that my kids have better voice that I am, so they can sing in a Videoke too like my family in Phil.
My little boy loves to play his toy drums that he got from grandma. Even though its broken and the pieces are not together anymore, he still plays with it and pretend that he is a drummer. He use a pencil as a drumstick to bang on it. He is so funny isnt he? But surprisingly he can make a beat. I guess he copy it from the show that he watch in TV. He sure is so into it. It made me think of getting him a drum set in the future with real goodwood drumsticks. I hope his love of music will last forever.
I was listening to some cool upbeat music in my computer this morning, to wake me up and to make me feel more active to what I am doing. My housemates were still sleeping, so I cant turn the volume high as I wish because I dont want to wake them up and ruined my routine. Music sure makes me feel relax and happy, and it also gives me good workout in the morning. Listening to the music makes me wish that I have a talent in singing or even just playing a musical instrument. I know its not hard to learn to play one, but with my busy schedule right now, it’s impossible to give myself some lessons. I know a lot of websites offers online classes in music, but I dont think I got a time. Also, I dont have that financial resources for any musical instruments. I know one website that have great deals in any music stuff and that is the musiciansfriend.com. They have all sorts of stuffs even Antares Software , that are used for vocal effects. I like to have a keyboard one day, teach myself, and then teach the kids to play it. And since I know how to read some of the notes, I dont think it would be difficult to learn it.
When I was little, I used to play different kinds of musical instruments, like the Piano and ukelele. My fave was my ukelele. My dad bought me the cutest ukelele in town. He had it customized and engraved my name on it. It was very precious. I so love it, but I lost it when a big flash flood hit our little town in Philippines, after that I never played anymore. Thinking about it makes me missed it so much. I so wish I continued playing and learning some other instruments like the guitar. I envy my sister, because she knows how to play the guitar. I did try to learn it, but I had no time to play with it.
To learn to play the guitar is quite easy. First you need to find the guitar that is right for you, that is perfect for you. Making music with your instrument, is like making love to your instrument, so you should feel it, touch it, and listen to it. To be more comfortable with your instrument, you need to have the right gadget such as a guitar straps, which is a big neccesity to any musicians, specially if you are performing. This would help you feel relax and easy to play your guitar. I sure wish to own a real guitar one day, and learn how to play it. I like to teach my kids to play music and love music.
