Chordbook.com – Awesome Interactive Guitar Chords, Tuner and Scales

I don’t play guitar (yet), but a lot of my friends and family members do and I know it can be a b*tch to find a guitar tuner sometimes, especially when you’re traveling. I’ve actually seen a couple other online guitar tuners before but this site takes it further than anyone else. They have some really sweet free interfaces with a lot of options. If you play, it’d be awesome to always know this is here, and works. Don’t know if they have an app..

The Coolest Instrument Ever – The Hang – Dante Bucci ripping it up!

The Hang  (pronounced like Hung, sometimes called the Hang Drum) is a UFO shaped steel instrument with different dents that create different sounds when hit. They are made in Switzerland, and are pretty rare to find and are apparently pretty expensive as well. I hear that you have to know someone who knows someone to get one. They are usually hand made. What I wouldn’t do to get my hands on one. This is an incredibly versatile instrument in the way it can be played. It is not always just drummed on, but can produce a number of really interesting sounds depending on how you hit it (like knocking on it). The reverberation of this instrument also makes for an amazing ambiance. Dante Bucci destroys this performance. He really does the instrument justice. Check it out!

Awesome DAW “How to” Video Resource – Winksound.com

I ran into this site pretty randomly the other day. It has video tips for Ableton Live, Reason, Pro Tools, and Logic that are quick and helpful for anybody starting to play around with these programs or for people looking for cool tricks to try out in the studio.  Awesome resource, just thought I’d share. http://winksound.com/
