A brief history of the blues guitar

the blues guitar

The history of music blues guitar is closely linked to the history of African Americans, the only immigrants who came to America reluctantly. The blues is a tapestry of African-American life, from the time of slavery in modern times. This type of music has a huge following and is thriving today.

The blues has a cyclical form of music that the chord progression and interaction between the singer and others repeated. This theme was common to African and African-American musical styles. Blues twelve-bar blues chord progression in his heart. such as 8, there are also agreements 9 and 16 bar other variants, but the twelve-bar chord is the most popular. distinctive blue notes, to give expression and feeling of music was played flat or gradually doubled from the third lowest to highest third, compared with the height of the scale. This gave soul and depth to the music.

The history of blues music evolved from the face of the country in 1900, with the African American population. The same blue word comes from the term “blue devils”, meaning sadness or reflects the human spirit at its lowest. The music was a reflection of their joys, sorrows, problems of everyday life, thanking the Lord, etc. His motivating force was grief, denial and depression of everyday life, they are determined by the Blues music disturbing. The first instruments used were the Banjo and Diddley bow, deep blue South instruments and gradually evolved guitar style. Some of the early bluesmen Robert Johnson was the note, Charley Patton and Son House, etc. As African Americans migrated to a greater number of cities, the blues music began to have an urban character despite its rural roots are not abandoned.

Licenses of music in the new world of music

Licenses of music

For many years musicians in the know could make a good amount of additional income from licensing their music, but sometimes lucrative source of income begins to decline very quickly. This unfortunate trend has allowed young music artists to monitor basses who are desperate for a much needed exposure and allows the downward trend in license fees paid to artists.

This old story is the same as always, people in the background (in this case, young artists and artists sometimes even not so young) are the ones who get the ultimate end of the offer, and companies get something good by promising a market And make a fortune with it.

Trying out a career in a group is harder than ever, so getting a piece of music on a popular show or movie can literally make you spend the night. In fact, the music industry needs these bands, no matter how it looks from the outside. If it becomes too difficult to make a modest living, let’s end up with American Idol artists and similar programs that are controlled by someone like Simon Fuller 100%, and we’ll just have to get more fake, until the last drop of originality pulled out of she.

Now, I do not think it’s a tirade against the singers to these programs because there is a real talent in them, and what choice of a lot of them these days? But how many Idol winners are huge stars and surnames? Some like Carrie Underwood (OK, I’m a fan) but who can name 5 who are actually doing and making music to be performed with the Beatles or Led Zeppelin in 20 years?

The healing power of music, the physical connection

power of music

A growing number of people have discovered how music can help dissolve their daily stress, physical problems such as migraines and emotional problems of anxiety and depression. Music and gymnastics fee in a common bond that block or redirect stress hormones, lower blood pressure, relieve anxiety, stimulate and relieve and improve our concentration. When music and physical form merge, a stronger bond is formed. We, professional fitness and health, have the opportunity to use this musical-fitness connection in our aquatic and group training courses, as well as training sessions and personal therapy. This makes us all therapists of all kinds, and the end result of a treatment class or session is a whole mind / body.

The healing power of music is part of the medical arsenal to help us return to our fitness activities after an illness or initial injury. The music relaxes us, which causes the release of endorphins (“feel good” hormones). These endorphins create a way to manage pain and help us return to our previous physical activities.

Aerobic exercise stimulates the release of endorphins, helping the brain to block pain signals. Exercise can also reduce the side effects of depression and anxiety that often result from chronic pain; Swimming or aerobics in the water in a pool of hot water are very beneficial for this chronic pain. Not only are these endorphins help with pain, they also help keep stress hormones (such as cortisol) under control. When our brain perceives any type of bodily stress, the hypothalamus sends a signal to the pituitary gland, which tells our adrenal glands to produce cortisol. Keeping control of stress hormones, whether through regular exercise and / or listening to music, we might be able to help prevent degenerative diseases such as heart disease and cancer.

Take the kids to see the musicals

Many parents wonder how they can keep their children entertained. Young people today like to play video games, watch TV and listen to hours of music players. Although these modest activities do not amount to any harm, children who spend more time dedicated to this recreation simply spend time with others and do not develop social behavior necessary for a healthy lifestyle. People who want to engage their children in creative hobbies may consider adopting musical selections.

The musical performances are usually placed in theaters and community halls. Some shows are performed by professional companies, while others are played by amateur actors and musicians. Regardless of the level of competence of the performers, these programs involve the public and allow people to enjoy the creativity that is not found on television or video games.

Popular books and movies are sometimes transformed into musical performances. If a particular child like a novel or a movie, he or she might be interested in seeing that he played for music. These reimbursements can convince young audiences to try new recreational activities that go beyond watching television or using a game console to control their results. Children can enjoy the freedom to watch others play.

The growth of live music

life music

After years of declining physical performance sales records, artists, bands and record labels recently focus on live music shows. Record companies also provide their 360-band offers. Sounds good, what exactly is it? Previously, the record companies were mainly used to finance only the production process of a physical record; Also known as long games, tapes and compact discs. Today, labels also fund and assist their groups and artists who have signed up to organize and sell their live performances, and also to eat most of the winnings.

You (or not) thanks to the Internet and the ease of distribution of pirated music, the general public is no longer disturbed, or even willing to buy physical music discs. There’s still hope; Johnny is always willing to spend his hard-earned money on music. Maybe not physically music records, but people seem to go to concerts more than ever. It seems that the sound quality is no difference from Johnny and most of the population, so it will not be worth it if you listen to MP3 on your computer.

On the other hand, going to a concert is a social experience where you can head out of the blast and interact with people in the sweat, some of which have never been seen. This is a new experience, completely different from when you are dating the same rotten old bar for several years. So invest today. Instead of spending hundreds of euros, currency in bankruptcy, alone in a bar, you could also invest something in a ticket for a concert and the rest in some ice cold beers to help manage the heat of indoor concerts, Or maybe as a chick investment.
