Stevie Wonder

image

“Stevland Hardaway Morris (born May 13, 1950, as Stevland Hardaway Judkins),[1] known by his stage name Stevie Wonder, is an American musician, singer-songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist. A child prodigy, he has become one of the most creative and loved musical performers of the late 20th century.[2] Wonder signed with Motown’s Tamla label at the age of eleven[2] and continues to perform and record for Motown as of the early 2010s. He has been blind since shortly after birth.” – Wikipedia

Little Streams: I’m having problem with Creating new songs specially the drum part. I’m a solo composer and cannot play all instruments and don’t have all instruments. So in my drum parts I use MIDI sequencers and Drum patterns. Sometimes the complexity of having to deal with this drum patterns is taking so much time and energy, keeps me wishing of a real drummer available.. Sighs.. :)

Thank You much for tuning in..

“A Cave That Is A Grave

The building covers the Cave of Machpelah, the place the Bible refers to as the burial ground for the Hebrew patriarchs and their wives (Genesis 23:19; 25:9; 49:30; 50:13). In the first century BC, Herod the Great constructed a massive wall around the cave—a beautiful edifice with construction techniques similar to those of the Temple Mount.

As with Jerusalem’s Western Wall Tunnel, the massive size of the foundation stones surrounding Machpelah inspires awe to all who see them. With Herod’s signature relief framing the edges, each stone sits slightly offset from the one beneath it, providing the optical illusion of both loftiness and grandeur. Inside the wall, the pavement also dates to Herod’s day.” – From thebible.org

Inspiring Artist of the Day: Guitar Jazz Legend
Tal Farlow

image

Talmage Holt Farlow (June 7, 1921 – July 25, 1998) was an American jazz guitarist. Nicknamed the “Octopus”, for his extremely large hands spread over the fretboard as if they were tentacles, he is considered one of the all-time great jazz guitarists. Where other similar players of his day combined rhythmic chords with linear melodies, Farlow preferred placing single notes together in clusters, varying between harmonically enriched tones based on a startling new technique. – wikipedia

Listen to Tal Farlow here http://youtu.be/gIaseicCzFk

Little Treams: I was Playing the guitar last night and trying to complete my “3hrs daily” I was freaking very sleepy, But still completed it.. This journey somehow is really pushing me and I like it.. Maybe I just have to start earlier and avoid any distractions so I could sleep earlier.. Sleep is very very important if you wan’t to succeed in life, many experts are advocating this, so it is very true.. ;)

Inspiring Artist of the Day

Leonardo da Vinci

image

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (Italian pronunciation: [leoˈnardo da vˈvintʃi] pronunciation (help·info); April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519, Old Style) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of “unquenchable curiosity” and “feverishly inventive imagination”. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. According to art historian Helen Gardner, the scope and depth of his interests were without precedent and “his mind and personality seem to us superhuman, the man himself mysterious and remote”. Marco Rosci states that while there is much speculation about Leonardo, his vision of the world is essentially logical rather than mysterious, and that the empirical methods he employed were unusual for his time. -Wikipedia
