「小提琴」小提琴初學者一定要養成的十二個小習慣 | 「violin」12 Habits Every Violin Beginner Must Cultivate

(建議收藏★!!)  學習任何樂器,我們都要在過程中養成良好的習慣才可以事半功倍,下面介紹的這些學習小提琴的十二個小習慣,超級乾貨超級實用,快來看看你有沒有“中招”,掉進壞習慣的陷阱!   ★習慣一:練琴前做些手指拉伸的動作。 動作以手指韌帶的拉伸為主,不要太用力。目的類似於跑步、游泳前的準備運動,能使你更快地進入彈琴狀態。冬天的話可以先抱會兒熱水袋暖暖手。    ★習慣二:堅持每天練音階。 只要你開始練音階了,就堅持每天練一段。這樣,即使每天沒太多時間碰琴,也能使你的水平不至於退得太厲害。對初學者來說,每天練音階更能保持穩定的進步。    ★習慣三:由慢至快。 無論哪種樂器的音樂大師,提到練習,一定會強調慢練的重要性,美國新英格蘭音樂學院教授Kim Kashkashian在大師課上多次和學生說:”If you can slow down,then you can go fast.” 慢練的過程恰恰是我們學習時刻意練習時大腦神經元的有效連接的過程。無論是初學者還是專業學習者都至關重要。 慢練的好處實在太多。總之,慢練就是王道。    ★習慣四:第一遍練習就重視譜子上的每一個符號。 許多人第一遍練習都會忽略譜上的表情記號,然後在練熟後改,其實在第一遍練習時就注意表情符號更能加深對曲子的理解。      ★習慣五:練琴時備一支鉛筆。 很多時候譜子上並沒有詳細的指法、強弱指示,這時候,就需要用筆來把我們自己認為合適的指法、強弱等記號標上去。記住要用鉛筆,不然寫錯很難改哦!   ★習慣六:沒練熟一首曲子前少聽錄音。 錄音只不過是一個參考,沒練熟就听錄音往往會導致我們去模仿錄音,從而盲目追求速度,並失去自己對曲子的理解。    ★習慣七:學會分段練習,單獨揪錯。 不要每次都從頭拉到底,第一遍練一首曲子是先把它分段,熟悉一段以後再練下一段。一旦發現哪裡有錯誤,要單獨把錯誤的地方挑出來改正。分段練習也更有利於曲子的整體把握。    ★習慣八:盡量保持良好的手型。 不論練什麼曲子,不論用什麼速度練,盡量保持良好的手型。也許有人會說:速度上去了,手型就沒法保證了。其實不然,能在高速彈奏中保持良好的手型也是檢驗基本功是否紮實的標準之一。同樣,好的手型,也幫助演奏者完成更好的音準效果    ★習慣九:練與自己水平相近的曲子。 很多人喜歡練超出自己水平很多的曲子,這樣做其實是有害而無益的。曲子超出自己水平很多,你就很難保證自己技術處理上的準確性,甚至會有大量的錯音。而且以後即使有水平練習這曲子了,也很難改回來。    ★習慣十一:明確每天練琴的目標,不要同時練很多曲子。 和學習工作一樣,練琴也需要有目標。比如確定今天要練熟曲子的某一段,或者要把某首曲子背出來等等。不要盲目地同時練很多曲子,囫圇吞棗式的練習會使你感到進展緩慢。相比之下集中突擊一到兩首曲子效果會好很多。    ★習慣十二:嚴謹至上,切忌得過且過。 練琴不嚴謹可以說是業餘習琴者的通病。練琴過程中難免會有各種各樣的難點,這時千萬不能有得過且過的心理,每啃下來一個難點,水平就上個台階。         音樂就是思想著的聲音。 Music is the sound of thinking.       _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 12 Habits Every Violin Beginner Must Cultivate ★Habit 1: Do some finger stretching before practicing the piano. The action is mainly based on the stretching of the finger ligaments, and do not use too much force. The purpose is similar to the preparatory exercise before running and swimming, which can make you enter the state of playing the piano faster. In winter, you can hold a hot water bottle to warm your hands first. ​​ ★Habit 2: Insist on practicing scales every day. As long as you start practicing scales, stick to one paragraph every day. In this way, even if you don't have much time to touch the piano every day, your level will not drop too much. For beginners, practicing the scales every day can maintain steady progress. ★Habit 3: from slow to fast. No matter what kind of music master, when it comes to practice, he will definitely emphasize the importance of slow practice. Kim Kashkashian, a professor at the New England Conservatory of Music in the United States, said to his students many times in his master class: "If you can slow down, then you can go fast.” The process of slow practice is precisely the process by which we learn the effective connections of neurons in the brain when we practice deliberately. It is essential for both beginners and professional learners. There are many benefits of slow training. In short, slow training is king. ​​ ★Habit 4: For the first practice, pay attention to every symbol on the score. Many people ignore the emoji on the score for the first practice, and then change it after practice. In fact, paying attention to the emoji in the first practice can deepen the understanding of the song. ​​   ★Habit 5: Prepare a pencil when practicing the piano. In many cases, there is no detailed fingering and strength instructions on the score. At this time, we need to use a pen to mark the fingering, strength and other marks that we think are suitable. Remember to use a pencil, otherwise it will be difficult to correct mistakes!   ★Habit 6: Listen less to the recording before you have mastered a piece of music. The recording is just a reference. Listening to the recording without being proficient often leads us to imitate the recording, so as to blindly pursue the speed and lose our understanding of the song. ​​ ★Habit 7: Learn to practice in sections and make mistakes alone. Don't start from the beginning to the end every time. The first time you practice a piece of music, you should first divide it into sections, and then practice the next section after you are familiar with it. Once you find any mistakes, you should single out the mistakes and correct them. Sectional practice is also more conducive to the overall grasp of the song. ​​ ★Habit 8: Try to maintain a good hand shape. No matter what song you practice, no matter what speed you practice at, try to maintain a good hand shape. Some people may say: as the speed goes up, the hand shape cannot be guaranteed. In fact, it is not the case. Being able to maintain a good hand shape in high-speed playing is also one of the criteria for checking whether the basic skills are solid. Similarly, a good hand shape also helps the player to achieve a better intonation effect   ★Habit 9: Practice songs that are similar to your own level. Many people like to practice songs that are much beyond their own level, but doing so is actually harmful and unhelpful. If the tune is much beyond your own level, it will be difficult for you to guarantee the accuracy of your technical processing, and there will even be a lot of mistones. And even if you practice this song at a level in the future, it will be difficult to change it back. ​​ ★Habit 11: Make clear the goal of practicing the piano every day, and don't practice many pieces at the same time. Like learning and work, practicing the piano also requires goals. For example, make sure you want to master a certain section of a song today, or you want to memorize a certain song, etc. Don't blindly practice a lot of pieces at the same time, you will feel that your progress is slow when you practice whole-heartedly. In contrast, the effect of concentrated attack on one or two songs will be much better. ​​ ★Habit 12: Rigor comes first, don't just let it go. It can be said that the lack of rigorous piano practice is a common problem for amateur piano practitioners. There will inevitably be various difficulties in the process of practicing the piano. At this time, you must not have the mentality of just getting through it. Every time you tackle a difficulty, your level will rise to a higher level.     音樂就是思想著的聲音。 Music is the sound of thinking.

把你的 E 跟 A 和弦彈出火花

把你的 E 跟 A 和弦彈出火花   為了能夠彈奏出更多你喜歡的歌曲,學習各式的和弦及其變化是在所難免地。   如果你還沒看過我們之前關於吉他和弦的文章 結他和弦:一次過搞清楚咩叫,可以到這裡查看。   對於初學者來說,音樂理論固然重要,但也很容易讓你喪志。尤其是當你連基本的和弦都還一知半解的,指尖發痛,手開始抽筋的時候,更不要提什麼 SUS 和弦 或屬七和弦了…    (啊!你說 屬 什麼!!?)   還記得上一篇 5 個讓學吉他更快上手的方式 裡有跟你提到要放輕鬆讓,調對歌曲,並讓自己處於一個適合學習的環境嗎?   學習需要一步一步來,盡可能地讓它變得有趣。所以今天要跟你分享的就是如何彈奏 E 和弦 及 A 和弦(2 個簡單的和弦),並與它們的相關和弦 E7 及 Asus2 交叉使用。   為了幫助您更好地了解如何交叉使用,這裡會用一首 Coldplay 的 Us Against the World 作為示範,讓你知道其實沒那麼難啦。   好咯!我們開始吧……(身邊有吉他更好)   現在您可能在問 “什麼是 SUS 或  屬七和弦”?   (… 你確定要問這種消志的問題?)   好吧,不涉及痛苦的音樂理論而言,SUS 和弦 及 屬七和弦 是我們常見的 A,C,D,E,G 等基本和弦 (Major Chords) 的變體。   ‘SUS’ 是 掛留和弦,懸掛 (SUSPENDED) 的縮寫,給所述和弦一個開放,彷彿無結論的尾音。   而 屬七和弦 (Dominant Seventh)是一組由根音、大三度音、純五度音和小七度音構成的和弦。 也可以被看作是一個大三和弦(或曰「大調三和弦」)附加一個小七度音。   (… 看吧,就說不要問這種消志的問題)   但對於凡人來說 SUS 及 屬七和弦是吉他手為了找出理想的聲音,或讓原本無聊重複的音律變得更有趣而用來取代 Major 或交叉使用的一種替代和弦。   以下是一些 SUS 和弦與其主要和弦相比的示例:     今天我們將會專注在 A 和弦 及 E 和弦的部分, Asus2 及 E7:                                                   Asus                                                                                      E7   以下我們將使用 Coldplay 的 Us Against the World 的第一節來示範這些和弦如何變化,交叉使用。讓你可以簡單理解,立即嘗試。     從樂譜你可以看到,第一行主要為 A 和弦,但交叉使用的話你就會在第 1 和第 3 拍上彈奏 A,在第2 和第 4 拍上 切換成 Asus 和弦。   第二行則是 E 和弦為主,而交叉使用跟 A 和弦一樣,第 1 和第 3 拍上彈奏 E,在第2 和第 4 拍上 切換成 E7 和弦(處於練習你可以不需要用到變調夾)。   當然,你還是可以只用大和弦 A 和 E 來演奏它,但你會發現在有使用 Asus2 和 E7 的情況下跟沒有使用的情況下,聲音是明顯差很多的。   下列影片我們來做個簡單的示範,影片分 3 個部分。   第一部分(就是有本人破碎嗓音的那段)你會看到我在 Intro 的部分有用到 Asus2 和 E7 ,而在演唱部分,我就只用 A 和 E 和弦。     這麼彈主要是讓沒有歌聲陪伴的前奏(只要是沒伴唱的部分都一樣原則)增添一點亮點,聽起來沒有那麼枯燥。   另一方面在開始唱的時後只彈奏主和弦是為了讓能你更容易專注於單一和弦就好 (指的是 A 和 E)。這樣練習一可以比較輕鬆,而無需擔心在唱的同時還要變切換 A 到 Asus,E 到 E7。   在第二部分中,你將看到僅用 Major 和弦演奏的範例,而在第三部分中,是有交叉 Asus2 和 E7    有聽到差別嗎?現在還你試試!   希望這一篇有關 SUS 及 屬七和弦和弦的講解(或任何其他和弦變化)會讓你對於和弦的變化少一分恐懼,多一分勇於嘗試的興趣。   在沒深入解音樂理論之前你一樣可以享受彈吉他的樂趣。你只需要維持好奇和冒險的精神,在演奏時多方嘗試各種和弦的的搭配,聽聽聲音的差異,挑選你認為好聽的方式。   音樂是活的,你的演奏也應該如此; )   繼續練習,Rock On。nn/

Spice up your A's and E's

  Spice up your A's and E's   To be able to play the songs you love, learning different chords and their variations is an unavoidable part of the process. If you haven’t read our post on Guitar Chords: Understand what is major, minor, 7th, maj 7, min 7, 9th, 11th , Dim, Aug, be sure to check it out here.   But for a beginner, music theories can be a killjoy and often adds to the level of difficulties you’re already experiencing with forming even the most basic chords.   Imagine your fingertips are in pain and your hand starts getting crampy, the last thing you want to learn more of is music theories, sounds about right?   Learning needs to be taken a step at a time, making it fun as much as you can. So in this blog you’ll learn to play the E chord and A chord (2 easy chords), interchangeably with their variations E7 and Asus.    And to help you better understand how these variations are applied, you’ll see an actual example of how easy it is to play these chords in the song Us Against the World by Coldplay.   So let’s begin… (hopefully you have your guitar by your side)   Now you’re probably wondering “what is a SUS chord”?    Well, without getting into the painful music theory side of things, a SUS chord is simply a variation of a major like A, C, D, E, G, etc.    ‘SUS’ is short for SUSPENDED, giving said chords an open-ended sound.   Guitarists use a SUS chord as an alternative to the major chord to produce a more desirable sound or make an otherwise boring repetition more interesting.   Here are examples for a few SUS chords in comparison to their major chords:   Today, we'll focus on the Asus2 and the E7 chord, a variation of the A chord and E chord:                                                   Asus2                                                                                     E7   We’ll be using the first stanza of the song Us Against the World by Coldplay in this example for demonstrating how these chord variations can spark up a song in ways even you as a beginner can learn right away.     Looking at the chords above, you will play the major chords of A and E on the 1st and 3rd count, and Asus2 and E7 on the 2nd and 4th count (it is okay if you don’t use a capo).   Of course you can still play it with just the major chords A and E, but you will find that the song is less interesting when compared to it being played with the Asus2 and E7 alternatives.   In our following easy session video you will see 3 examples of how the chords vary. The first part (the one with my broken vocal) you will see that I’m playing the introduction with the Asus2 and E7 variation, and when it comes to the singing part, I switched to playing only the major A and E chords.     In doing so, not only will you add a bit of spark to the introduction of a song (or any instrumental parts of a song) so that it doesn’t sound boring, you’re also making it much easier to play during the singing part when you revert back to just playing the major chords. This will make your strumming (plucking) much easier without worrying about switching between variations and singing at the  same time.   In the 2nd part you will see an example of just the major chords in play, while in the 3rd part I’ve added the Asus2 and E7 variation.   Hear the difference? Now you try !   I hope this session allowed you to understand how SUS chords (or any other chord variations) can make a difference to your playing.   You don’t need to understand music theory to have fun with your guitar. You just need to be curious and adventurous, explore the different variants of a chord when you’re playing and listen to the difference in sound, see how they can fit into the song.   Music is a living, breathing thing, so should your playing be ; )    Keep on practicing, and Rock On .nn/

5 個讓學吉他更快上手的方式

5 個讓學吉他更快上手的方式   吉他是一種很適合初學者的樂​​器,除了具有寬廣的音域旋律之外,它也很輕巧且方便攜帶,還不會像鼓或薩克斯風那樣有噪音的疑慮(你的鄰居會很感謝你),而且你還可以邊彈邊唱。   這也就是為什麼你不會在愛情片裡看到男主角吹著長號把妹。 如果你確定要開始學吉他了,接下來該怎麼開始?   以下五點有助於讓你的學習過程更有成效:   挑選一把對的吉他 報名吉他課程(為什麼?) 放輕鬆(欲速則不達) 挑選對的歌曲來練習(簡單的和弦) 養成良好的練習習慣   (一)挑選一把對的吉他   挑選一把吉他就像選擇一雙鞋子一樣,如果穿起來不舒服,那後續的路就很難走下去。     所以首先你要確定吉他的大小是符合你的身形的。比方說,如果你是一位個頭不大的女生,那一把 41” Dreadnought 對你而言就會有點大。相對的一把 36寸旅用型的吉他 就會比較適合一些。     再來就是的注意吉他的彈奏性。在挑選吉他的時候要看看它的弦高是否過高。很多初學者無法正確的按壓和弦的原因之一都不是因為他們是初學者,而是很多廉價吉他的弦高往往都太高,導致彈奏著無法準確的將和弦按好。 想要了解跟多有關於如何挑選一把吉他的朋友可以參考這篇新手選購木吉他指南。     (二)報名吉他課程(為什麼?)   現在網路上的吉他教學課程與自學訊息琳瑯滿目,何必還要花錢報名線上課程呢?         簡單的回答嘛,就是老師能夠減少你走很多冤枉路,加速你學習的時間。但真正重要的是,一位專業的吉他老師會為你量身打造一個完整的學習架構,讓你能在最短的時間內見到成效,建立信心。  另外一個常被忽略的關鍵是,建立責任感。當你身邊有一位可以陪著你一步一步學習的人的時後,你會變得更有責任感,想要把事情做好。 況且,現在很多線上課程都有提供免費的試用期讓你能更無後顧之憂的去選擇適合你的課程。     (三)放輕鬆(欲速則不達)   初學者最常碰到的一個狀況就是無法將理想現實化,也就是說很容易好高騖遠、欲速則不達。     你不可能上了一堂體操課,隔天就會後空翻吧?學吉他也是一樣,不要操之過急。滿滿的一步一步向前邁進。 但如果你能夠設定合理的目標,並持之以恆的練習,你反而會更快的達到目標,開始彈奏你喜歡的歌曲。   說到這個,就必須得提到下一個關鍵點…     (四)挑選對的歌曲來練習(簡單的合旋)   還記得當初開始學吉他的時候,我滿腔熱血的想學我所愛好的樂團的歌,像是 Metallica, Bon Jovi, Greenday 的歌曲。   … 等等 (大叔不小心透漏年齡了)   言歸正傳,就這樣我的學習過程很快的就碰到了困境,真的會很想把吉他給砸了!   問題出在哪?   問題在於當時野心勃勃挑選練習用的歌,包含太多複雜的和弦,讓人難以招架,自然而然的就抹滅了我想繼續練習的動力。     所以,有技巧性挑選歌曲,不單要是你喜歡的歌,和旋也要很簡單,例如 G, C, D, E⋯⋯ 等等。另外,簡單的和弦不代表歌曲也會很冷門,你會驚訝的發現其實很多流行歌曲的和弦都是這幾個簡單的 G, C, D 和 E 所組成的。 選好歌曲了嗎… 那我們就開始練習咯!   (五)養成良好的練習習慣   無論任何事,只有不斷的練習才能讓你進步。別無他法!     然而…   還是有一些方式是可以讓你的學習過程更容易看到進展的。   以下 3 點看似簡單但很有幫助: #1. 先將所需要用到的和弦準備好,你可以在網路上輕易的找到。絕大部分的和弦表都很完整,包含很多你陸陸續續會用到的和弦(也包含很多你這輩子都被會用到的)。        找到和弦表後,你只需要專注在你當下會用到的幾個就好。這麼做的原因主要是讓你在開始練習的時候不需要再去翻找和弦,浪費時間,打斷你練習的步調。   #2. 不要只挑一首歌,多挑幾首而且要是你很想學的歌。 其一,是因為如此一來,你才有學習的動力。至於【兩隻老虎…兩隻老虎,跑得快… 跑得快】的那本初學者樂譜你就可以丟了吧。   其二,當你有兩三首歌課選擇練習的時候,你也可以交叉著練。一方面不容易疲乏(相信我,一直練同一首歌是會瘋掉的)。另一方面也有助於你記住這些和弦。   其三,藉由和弦的轉換,就算和弦是相同的一組,不同的彈奏順序也能鍛鍊你手指頭的肌肉記憶,讓音符跟和弦的形狀無形中產生連結。   #3. 先將你的吉他從袋子裡拿出來… 然後就不要再放回去!   為什麼,這有什麼幫助嗎?   當你的吉他一直在你眼前晃來晃去的時候,就會想彈它。還有當你想彈的時候也很容易的可以拿起來就彈,減去了從袋子裡拿出來的時間。   希望以上的資訊能夠為你的練習帶來一點幫助。你也可以看一看我們其他文章,希望能在你的學習旅途上帶來更大的幫助。   Rock On .nn/

5 tips to ease your guitar learning journey

5 tips to ease your guitar learning journey   The guitar is a fun musical instrument to play, apart from its wide octave melodic range, it’s also lightweight and easy to carry around, doesn’t contribute to noise as much as drums or a saxophone (your neighbours will appreciate it), and you can play and sing along to your favourite song.   This is why you don’t see a guy playing a trombone to a girl in a romantic movie.   So if you’ve set your mind on learning the guitar, where should you start?   Below are 5 tips to help with your learning process:   Choosing the right guitar Enrolling in an online course, and why you should Go easy on yourself in the beginning Pick the RIGHT songs to practice (simple chords) Setting up a habit to practice   1. Choosing the right guitar   Picking the right guitar is like finding the right pair of shoes, you won’t go very far if you’re not comfortable in it.        So first you need to determine the size. If you’re a girl with a medium built, then a 41” Dreadnought can be a little too big for you. Whereas a travel size guitar, usually around 36” might be a better fit.     The next thing you look at is playability. You want something that has a lower ‘ACTION’, which refers to the space (or height) between the strings and the frets.   Too often beginners struggle with playing the chords not due to the fact that they’re a beginner, but because the action on a ‘low-priced’ guitar is too high. For more information on choosing a guitar, check out our post on A beginner's guide to buying an acoustic guitar.   2. Enrolling in an online course, why?   There are hundreds of free lessons and self taught materials on the internet so why should you enroll into an online course?      Well, the simple answer to that is you’d save a lot of time on figuring out what to do and how to do it.     But the truth is, a professional instructor can provide you with a structured plan to help you achieve your goals much quicker.  Another important key is you will have accountability. You will be truly committed to not just yourself, but to someone else helping you every step of the way.   Besides, many of these online courses offer free trial lessons so that you can see if it’s something that fits you and there’s no harm trying.   3. Go easy on yourself   One of the biggest pitfalls you as a beginner can experience is expecting big results in a short time. To be more precise, having an unrealistic expectation.      Let’s be honest, you’re not going to attend your first gym class today and do backflips the next day. The same is with learning to play the guitar.   However, if you set up realistic goals and stick to them, I promise you, you’ll be playing many of your favourite songs in no time.   Which brings us to the next tip…   4. Pick the RIGHT song (simple chords)   When I first started out learning, I was so eager to jump into songs by my favourite bands like Metallica, Bon Jovi, Greenday, etc. (yes, I’m an old fart I know), but trust me, you’ll quickly be met with a wall so high you wish you’d just throw your guitar over it and be done with it.   Problem? I picked the wrong songs that have way too many new and complicated chords I can handle. And naturally that demoralized me from my learning.     Be strategic and pick songs that are made up of all the simple chords like G. C, D, E, etc. And don’t worry, you’ll be surprised at how many popular songs share the exact same chords, G, C, D and E.    Once you’ve picked out your songs, it’s time to PRACTICE!   5. Setting up goals and a habit to practice   Practice is the only way you’ll ever get better at anything. Period!      However…   there are ways to make practice a little easier to help with your momentum in learning to play the guitar.     There are 3 things you can do: #1. Find yourself a list of all the chords you need, they can be easily found on the web and most of the chord list contains all the chords you’ll ever need (some you won’t even use).      But I want you to just focus on the chords you need for your songs. This makes practicing much easier and faster when you have all the chords readily available.   #2. Pick more than 1 song, preferably songs you’d really love to play. The reason is you’ll have the motivation to keep practicing with songs you love, and not some ‘Mary had a little Lamb’ from a course book.   Having a second or third song is also helpful with keeping your mind fresh by switching between songs, which helps with memory retention (trust me, you WILL get bored with just 1 song).    Switching between songs can also help train your finger through different chord progressions (even if they’re the same chords), which helps build muscle memory.   #3. Take your guitar out of the bag and LEAVE it outside. Let your guitar be readily available to you whenever you want to pick it up to play. Reduce as many obstacles between you and your precious guitar.    I hope you find the above information useful. Please stay tuned for more tips on how to make your learning easier and check out the other posts to find more useful information to help you on your learning journey.   Rock On .nn/

您可以為吉他手購買的 5 大聖誕禮物 節拍器 字符串清潔器 基本吉他維護工具包 音頻接口/外置聲卡 指導材料。 (書籍、轉錄 pdf、課程包)   節拍器 節拍器是一個幫助我們保持音樂節奏良好狀態的一個工具。通常大多數的新手都會忽略它的重要性。 這有幾個原因: 他們會覺得在他們的練習時間裡要帶著它很不方便 大多數初學吉他手會發現咔嗒聲很煩人,並決定不使用它 他們不認為這是一個重要的工具,因此不願意進行投資。 節拍器的好處。 迫使你及時玩。 培養一致性 增強與其他音樂家、歌手一起演奏的信心。   琴弦清潔劑/潤滑劑 一般彈吉他的人都想在吉他弦上省錢,很正常。但是您是否知道在吉他上彈奏生鏽的琴弦與新琴弦相比會對品絲造成更大的摩擦?這最終會導致品絲壽命縮短,根據您使用的品絲類型,重新''refret''服務可能會花費大約 1000-2000 港幣。也沒有人喜歡在生鏽的琴弦上彈奏的感覺。   防止琴弦生鏽的一種方法是使用 D'addario XLR8 String Lubricant & Cleaner 這樣的琴弦清潔劑。該工具非常適合讓您的琴弦長時間保持新鮮感。   每次在彈吉他之前和之後都應用它。 它應該讓你的琴弦感覺就像重新上弦一樣。 讓您的琴弦遠離不必要的手指汗水、手指食物污漬等。 品絲和琴弦之間的摩擦較小(品絲壽命更長)   基本吉他維護工具包 這些工具將為您的吉他之旅帶來巨大的價值和節省時間。想像一下,當您需要對吉他琴橋進行一些調整但沒有合適的內六角扳手尺寸時?換弦但沒有繞線器和切線器?每當您需要時,在房子周圍放置一個工具包真是太好了,而不必因為沒有某些工具來完成這項工作而花時間去吉他店。   Dunlop System 65™ Guitar String Change Kit DGT101 一個完整的套件,可以讓您在重新調整吉他弦的同時為您提供最少的麻煩。   Ernie Ball Musician's Tool Kit 另外的選擇,來質一名眾所周知的吉他弦公司。   Ibanez MTZ MTZ11 很棒的便攜套裝,可以快速取用,很適合放在你的吉他包裡。   音頻接口/外置聲卡 請注意,這是一款適合滿足這些要求的人的工具。 彈吉他/音樂至少 6 – 12 個月。 有一台電腦(Windows 或 Mac)/平板電腦(Android 或 iOS) 玩音樂已經有一段時間了,想要更加提升他們做音樂能力 如果您正處於音樂之旅的開始階段,這可能是一種聞所未聞的工具,但請相信它會為您的音樂成長帶來很多價值。 音頻接口實際上是一種轉換工具,將數字信號(計算機語言,0 和 1)轉換為模擬信號(人類語言,我們日常生活中聽到的)。也可能正好相反,這就是為什麼在某些情況下音頻接口也稱為 DAC(數模轉換器)、ADC(模數轉換器)的原因。 通常,我們已經對筆記本電腦和平板電腦的現有內部聲卡進行了某種轉換。問題是我們設備的輸入只支持常規的 3.5mm 輸入和輸出,這不能為我們提供正確的樂器或麥克風輸入,更不用說轉換分辨率可能沒有我們預期的那麼好。   那麼這款音頻設備有哪些實用的使用方法呢? 記錄您的練習階段、歌曲創作階段 能夠以更低的聲音延遲進行記錄,從而實現更好的監控。(在演奏時清楚地聽到自己的聲音) 最終您將擁有更好的錄音信心和經驗。 如果您彈奏電吉他,您可以將樂器插入 ''Line Level'' 平並開始從您使用的音頻/音樂 software 接收信號。 如果您彈奏 Acoustic Guitar, Nylon String Guitar, Ukulele, Sing & Play 甚至吉他的 percussion,您可以將電容麥克風放入音頻接口的 XLR/Mic 通道輸入中。   推薦的頂級音頻接口   Focusrite Scarlett 2i2  (預算友好且可靠的產品)   Arturia MiniFuse 2 (來自一個已確立的 high-end plugin 公司的新hardware產品,超合理的價格!)   IK Multimedia iRig Pro I/O  (很棒的可移植性設備, 擁有iOS,Mac, Windows 的兼容性)   iRig 1 – Audio Interface for guitars (價格非常便宜,能夠在直接電話或iPad的 headphone input 作用)   指導材料 買了你的新吉他,但對它沒有信心,或者可能只是沒有很多曲目可以彈奏。 如果您有這些感覺,那麼您應該是時候在音樂上提升自己了。 您可以通過獲取指導材料來做到這一點,它可以是各種格式,具體取決於您的個人喜好。 無論是書籍、視頻,甚至是用於直接反饋的私人指導的課程包(最推薦)。   Hal Leonard Fingerstyle Guitar Method 推薦給想要接觸各種獨奏吉他編曲的原聲/尼龍弦吉他手。 (技巧/曲目)   涵蓋各種老歌,例如 More Than Words, Come Together, imagine, Yesterday, etc.   Chops Builder by Frank Gambale 適合給想要接觸各種吉他技巧的電吉技巧。 練習方法來自一個標誌性的 fusion shredder。推薦給想要提升他們的 “Guitar Fitness”。 本課包括: 多種 Picking 技術,探索所選細分中的重音和凹槽。 不同細分的組合 不同類型的音階/模式的練習 其他技術 (String Skipping, Sweep Picking, Hammer-Ons, Pull-offs, etc) https://www.frankgambaleguitarschool.com/course?courseid=chopbuilder-the-ultimate-guitar-workout   The Science of Rhythm Guitar by Paul Jackson Jr 非常適合想要建立 Rhythm Guitar 技巧的人。 (R&B,Soul, 流行音樂)。 還有什麼其他方式可以向出現在許多流行和流暢爵士樂唱片中的標誌性吉他演奏者學習。 本課程系列讓您深入了解各種吉他伴奏主題,例如: Strumming Toggle 決定在幾時在音樂伴奏裡貢獻,貢獻多少 Subdivisions Voicings The Science Of Rhythm Guitar, Chapter 1-Technique The Science Of Rhythm Guitar, Chapter 2- Popping The Strings The Science Of Rhythm Guitar, Chapter 3- Smooth Strumming The Science Of Rhythm Guitar, Chapter 4- The Left Hand Muting Technique The Science Of Rhythm Guitar, Chapter 5-Taking The Chord Apart, Part 1 The Science Of Rhythm Guitar, Chapter 6-Taking The Chord Apart, Part 2   其它服務: 想通過在聖誕節聚會季節播放某首流行/嘻哈歌曲來打動某人,但沒有指導幫你對嗎? 我們提供轉錄服務,您可以從下面的附加鏈接中找到它。 https://www.sixmonthsrebellion.com/pages/transcription-service       Top 5 Christmas Present you can buy for a Guitar Player Metronome String Cleaner Basic Guitar Maintenance Tool Kit Audio Interface / External Sound Card Guidance materials. (Books, Transcription pdfs, lesson package)     Metronome A metronome is a crucial tool for us to be able to keep our musical timing in good shape. Usually most newcomers will ignore the importance of it. There are a few reasons to that matter, which are : Some of them find it inconvenient to use it for their personal practice Most beginning guitarist will find the click sound rather annoying and decide not to use it They don’t have the impression that it’s an important tool to have, therefore not willing to make that investment. Benefits of a metronome. Forces you to play in time. Develop consistency Boost confidence playing with other musicians, singers.     String Cleaner / Lubricant We all want to save money on strings, that’s just normal behaviour. But do you know that playing rusty strings on your guitar will cause a larger amount of friction to the fret wire compared to fresh strings? Which eventually leads to a shorter fret lifespan, a re-fret service would probably cost about 1000-2000 HKD depending on the types of frets you use. Also nobody likes the feeling of playing on a rusty strings. One way to keep your strings out of the rusty condition is to have a string cleaner like the D’addario XLR8 String Lubricant & Cleaner. This tool is great for keeping your strings feel fresh for a longer period of time. Apply it every time before and after your guitar playing session. It should make your strings feel like newly restrung set. Save your strings from unwanted finger sweat, finger food stains, etc. Lesser friction between frets and strings (Longer fret lifespan)     Basic Guitar Maintenance Toolkit These are tools that will bring so much value and time saving along your guitar journey. Imagine when you need to make some adjustment on your guitar bridge but don’t have the correct Allen key size for it? Changing string but don’t have a string winder & cutter?  It’s great to have a toolkit set around the house whenever you need them, instead of having to spend time travelling to a guitar shop just because you don’t have certain tools to do the job.     D'Addario Guitar Maintenance Kit A complete package that will provide you the least amount of hassle while restringing your guitar.   Ernie Ball Musician's Tool Kit Another alternative from an established guitar string company.   Ibanez MTZ MTZ11 Great portable set for quick access, good to keep it in your guitar bag.     Audio Interface / External Sound Card Please note that this is a tool suitable for those who met these requirement. Playing guitar / music for at least 6 – 12 months. Have a computer (Windows or Mac) / tablet (Android or iOS) Playing music for quite some time and want to level up their musical capabilities This might be a tool that is a bit unheard of if you are at the beginning phase of your musical journey, but have do conviction that it will bring lots of value to your musical growth. An audio interface is actually a conversion tool that converts a digital signal (computer language, 0s and 1s) to an analog signal (human language, what we hear from our day to day life). It could be the other way around, that’s why in some case an audio interface is also known as a DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter), ADC (Analog-to-Digital Converter). Typically we already have some sort of conversion from the existing internal sound card of our laptops and tablets. Problem is the input of our devices only support the regular 3.5mm inputs and outputs, which doesn’t provide us the correct input of our instruments or microphones, not to mention the conversion resolution is probably not as decent as we can expect. So what are the practical ways of using this piece of audio gear? Record your practice sessions, songwriting sessions Be able to record in lower latency, which leads to better monitoring. (hearing yourself clearly while you play) Eventually you will have better recording confidence and experience. If you play an electric guitar, you can plug your instrument into the line level and start receiving signal from the audio/music software you are using. If you play acoustic guitar, nylon string guitar, ukulele, sing & play or even guitar percussion, you can place a condenser microphone into the XLR/Mic channel input of the audio interface.   Top audio interfaces by recommendations.   Focusrite Scarlett 2i2  (Great budget friendly and reliable product)   Arturia MiniFuse 2 (A new product from a well known high-end plugin company at a budget price point!)   IK Multimedia iRig Pro I/O  (Great portable rig with iOS,Mac, Windows compatibility)   iRig 1 – Audio Interface for guitars (Extremely low budget to get started, can be used with your iPhone or iPad headphone jack.)     Guidance Materials Bought your new guitar, but have little confidence on it, or maybe just don’t have a lot of repertoire to play with it. If you are having some of these feelings then it’s probably time for you to upgrade yourself musically. A few ways you can do that is by getting yourself guidance materials, it could be various format depending on your personal preferences. Be it a book, video, or maybe even a lesson package for private instruction for direct feedback (most recommended).   Hal Leonard Fingerstyle Guitar Method Recommend for acoustic/nylon string guitar player who wants to be exposed to different variety of solo guitar arrangements.

初學者低音吉他(貝斯)演奏 – 建立技巧的結構和策略(第 1 部分) | Beginner Bass Playing – Structure & Strategy to build up techniques (Part 1)

初學者低音吉他(貝斯)演奏 – 建立技巧的結構和策略(第 1 部分)     右手 首先,沒有所謂的“正確”技術。 每個人都只是尋找適合他們的技術。   如果你不與其他人比較,你是不會察覺自己的技術有任何問題。    低音吉他手被認為是樂隊中最勤奮的角色之一。 低音吉他手的節奏需要與鼓手同步,要依靠節拍並準確地發出音符,你要能夠用右手以最小的力量和一致性撥動琴弦, 這種能力可以從右手的適當練習中發展起來。    首先,包括訓練食指和中指彈撥是主要的目標。 低音吉他基本上是指彈風格。 如果你以前不熟悉該低音吉他,只需拿起它並按照以下簡單的指南嘗試一下。     1. 用緩慢的節拍器撥弦。 大約 60bpm – 70bpm。 這不是我自己的想法,但是每個頂級音樂家的最佳建議,試圖告訴你慢速節拍器會更容易接近任何樂器。   2. 切換食指和中指撥弦,使兩指之間的音量和力度相同,你應該能夠獲得相同或相當接近的聲音。當然,低音吉他的聲音需要強大的動力和紮實的節奏感才能配合鼓的節奏,你不希望低音吉他的聲音,聽起來就像是兩個不同的人在演奏,因為你的食指和中指彈奏不一致,這對音樂和你的樂隊夥伴來說會變成一個非常煩人的情況。       3. 用細分節奏撥弦。 從慢速開始,意味著你可以更準確地聽到並感覺到細分的節拍。 全音符、二分音符、四分音符、八分音符、三連音、十六分音符的感覺,從這個階段的音樂基礎上,應該是能夠勝任的,清楚的了解。 對這些音符有正確的感覺不僅可以幫助你計算小節、緊隨歌曲的進程,還可以為你創建良好的節奏感。 能夠識別拍號並立即擊中節拍是低音吉他手的優點,如果你有良好的節奏感,你將永遠不會錯過任何一個節拍。     左手 了解低音吉他的正確左手位置將使按弦和指法更簡單,因為左手會更舒適。通過保持鬆散和放鬆,你將能夠以最少的努力按弦。正確的位置還可以讓你以極快的速度和極高的準確性演奏。 你希望你的左手每根手指覆蓋一個frets,而不會對你的手造成任何過度的壓力。這種間距將使您的手可以在不移動的情況下執行幾乎任何音樂。當你必須移動時,向任一方向移動一個fret通常就足夠了。   1. 練習前將左臂伸到身前。保持手腕和手伸直。不要在沒有全面頭腦的情況下努力練習樂器,練習的能量是有限的,你只是不想浪費它們以獲得任何富有成效的結果。保持手腕筆直的手勢是必要的,以避免左手不准確的微動技術。 當你試圖將手指放在指板上並迅速消耗左手耐力時,彎曲手腕只會使您更加困難,即使你不是有意使用肌肉。首先,你的左手應該放鬆,不需要肌肉僵硬。   2. 保持手腕角度不變,將手翻過來,手掌朝上,手指微微彎曲。 將拇指放在食指或食指和中指之間的位置。 樂器在你手上的良好位置可以讓您有更多時間享受練習的過程,持久和一致性是紮實的關鍵。 到達頸部的更好姿勢是將低音吉他靠近胸部,因為你可以將低音吉他抱在懷中,這是一種優化的演奏姿勢選項,在電子爵士低音吉他手中很常見。 (Marcus Miller, Hadrien Feraud, Victor Wooten等)。     ​     3. 將你的肘部放在你的肋骨的一側(不要移動你的手),直到低音吉他的琴頸在你的手掌中。     4. 將拇指尖放在頸後中央。 確保您的指尖朝上。 在指板上伸展手指時要記住的最重要的事情是將一根手指放在每品上。 如下例。        5. 輕輕地將手指放在琴弦上,每個手指靠近相鄰的品格。 彎曲手指,直到指尖位於其中一根琴弦上。 演奏時一定要讓指尖靠近frets。   結論 “正確的技巧才能讓您獲得所需的音樂效果”。 “好的/正確的”技巧是讓您獲得所需的音樂效果而又不會引起疼痛或不必要的緊張的技巧。 每個人都有獨特的音樂聲音和目標,不同的身體,他們想要演奏的不同風格的音樂,以及他們想要演奏低音吉他的的不同方式。 技術是一種工具,最終,我們都想享受音樂和演奏音樂! 玩得開心!       ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________     Beginner Bass Playing – Structure & Strategy to build up techniques (Part 1) Right hand Firstly, there is no such thing as "proper" technique. It is up to each person to find a safe technique that works for them. You dont seem to be having any problems with your present technique, except that you are comparing it with others. Bass player is considered as one of the best hard working role in a band, due to the capacity of rhythm syncopation with the drummer. To count on the beat and deliver the note precisely, you need to be able to pluck the strings with your right hand with the minimum effort and consistency. This ability could developed from a proper practice routine on your right hand.  First of all, the plucking fingers included index finger and middle finger is the target to work on. Bass guitar is essentially stick with plucking and fingering style. If you are not familiar to this instrument ever before, just pick it up and give it a try with these simple guidelines. 1. Pluck the strings with a slow metronome. Around 60bpm – 70bpm. This is not my own thought but it could be the best advice from every top musicians that trying to tell you a slow metronome would be easier to approach to any instrument.  2. Switch index finger and middle finger to pluck the strings, in order to get the same amount of volume and dynamics in between these two fingers. You should be able to get the same or fairly equal- sound from your plucking fingers. Certainly, the bass sound needs a powerful momentum and solid rhythm feel to lock-in with drums, you don’t want your bass sound feels like an instrument played by two different persons for every single note just because your index finger and middle finger doesn’t sounds the same, that would turns into a really annoying situation to the music and your band mates.    3. Pluck the strings with subdivision rhythm. Start with a slow tempo means you could be able to hear the sub-divided beats and mimic the feel more correctly. The feel of whole note, half note, quarter notes, eight notes, triplets, sixteenth notes should be competent and clearly understand from this stage of musical foundation. Getting a right feel of these materials not only help you in counting the bars, tracking song’s progression but also create an inner metronome for your musical feeling. The ability to recognize time signature and instantly hit on the snare drum of the beat is a gift to a bass player, you would never miss a single beat if you achieved the inner metronome with a sense of good rhythm.   Left Hand  Knowing proper left-hand position for bass guitar will make fretting chords and fingering strings simpler because the left hand will be more comfortable. By keeping it loose and relaxed, you’ll be able to fret the strings with the least amount of effort. The proper position also enables you to play at great speed and with great accuracy.   You want your left hand to cover one fret per finger without causing any undue stress in your hand. This spacing will set up your hand to execute almost any musical figure without shifting. When you do have to shift, a move of one fret in either direction usually suffices. 1. Stretch your left arm out in front of you before practice. Keep your wrist and hand straight. Don’t put your effort to practice an instrument without a comprehensive mind, energy for a practice session is limit and you just don’t want to waste them to gain none of a productive result. Keeping your wrist straight to the hand’s gesture is necessary to avoid inaccurate fretting technique for the left hand. Bending the wrist only makes it more difficult to you when you’re trying to land the fingers on fretboard and quickly drain out your left hand stamina even though you are not intentionally using muscle. First of all, your left hand should be relax and there’s no muscle stiffness are needed. 2. Without changing the angle on your wrist, turn your hand over so that your palm faces up and your fingers are slightly curved. Position your thumb so that it faces your index finger, or the area between your index and middle fingers. A good position of the instrument on your hands could get you more time to enjoy the process of practicing, durable and consistency is the key to be solid. A better posture to reach the neck is holding the bass closer to your chest as you could hug your bass in arms, this is an optimize option of playing posture could be seen very common in electric Jazz bass players. (Marcus Miller, Hadrien Feraud, Victor Wooten, etc).     3. Bring your elbow in to the side of your rib cage (without moving your hand) until the bass guitar’s neck is in the palm of your hand.    4. Place the tip of your thumb on the middle of the back of the neck. Make sure that your fingertips are pointing upward. The most important thing to remember when stretching your fingers on fretboard is to put on one finger – per fret. As the following example.        5. Gently spread your fingers onto the strings, with each finger close to an adjacent fret. Curl your fingers until your fingertips are on one of the strings. Be sure to keep the tips of your fingers close to the frets as you play.   Conclusion “THE RIGHT TECHNIQUE IS THE ONE THAT GETS YOU THE MUSICAL RESULTS YOU NEED”. A “GOOD/RIGHT” TECHNIQUE IS THE ONE THAT GETS YOU THE MUSICAL RESULTS YOU NEED WITHOUT CAUSING PAIN OR UNNECESSARY TENSION. EVERYONE HAS UNIQUE MUSICAL VOICES AND GOALS, A DIFFERENT BODY, DIFFERENT STYLES OF MUSIC THEY WANT TO PLAY, AND DIFFERENT WAYS THEY WANT TO APPROACH THE BASS. TECHNIQUE IS A TOOL, EVENTUALLY, WE ALL WANT TO ENJOY THE MUSIC AND PLAYING MUSIC! HAVE FUN WITH IT!

基本吉他效果器入門簡介 | Introduction to Basic Guitar Effects

基本吉他效果器入門簡介     吉他手們都喜歡用效果,但很多人不是真正知道如何使用效果器,而瞭解效果器原理的人更是少之又少。 對部分彈吉他的人來說,讓他們願意彈吉他的唯一理由是精彩的吉他效果。 常見的是加了一大堆效果之後,無法分辨吉他的聲音,糊成一堆。吉他手的一個弱點是擁有效果器就想加上去,不管是否有用。對想要買第一個效果器的初學者來說,由於太多種效果了,所以他們很容易不知所措。 效果器可以分為兩大類,一類是改變吉他訊號的大小,也就是調整振幅,如Distortion, Compressor, Noise gate,Wah-wah等, 另一種,是延遲訊號的時間,如Chorus,Flanger,Reverb,Delay等。 在這裡為大家分別介紹常用的吉他效果器。       Distortion Distortion又稱為失真,基本上是擴大器無法達到應該輸出的功率而使得輸出的訊號失真了,這種失真一般會使得原本是正弦波的訊號便成了方形波,也就是說,擴大器因為達不到應該的輸出功率而將正弦波的上方除掉了,但在我們聽來,擴大器似乎加入了很多原來訊號裡沒有的泛音,這個泛音就是我們聽distortion 時麻麻的那種聲音。 失真的越厲害,波形被切的就越多,聽起來就越麻。 因為這種聲音是由擴大器或效果器,而不是由吉他來的。   Distortion 和 Overdrive 之間的不同 有部分吉他手將 overdrive 和 distortion 頻密地交互使用。 事實上,你常看到叫做 overdrive/distortion 的效果器。 技術上,overdrive 的音色是想模擬有著自然溫暖聲音的真空管音箱,而 distortion 則是加了更多穿透跟壓碎效果。 可以簡單假設所有的 distortion 聽起來會是一樣,但是其實各種的 distortion 中,有精巧、豐富的細微差別,這是為什麼有很多不同 distortion 效果器的原因。       Limiter & Compressor Limiter主要作用是改變輸出的大小,但它只改變音量,而不改變聲音的波形,當輸入訊號太大時,Limiter能夠保護擴大器或音箱,將輸出訊號限制於某個限度。 Compressor的功能就較為複雜了,它不只限制輸出的大小,當輸入訊號過小時,可以先將它放大到夠強的範圍,太大的部分就壓縮下來,這樣整個訊號就可以變的較均勻。       Noise gate Noise gate能濾掉雜音,但事實它不能真正濾掉雜音,因為機器不能分辨什麼是雜音,什麼是該錄的訊號,不過當沒有輸入訊號時,雜訊才聽的清楚,當輸入訊號較大時,雜訊較不重要,因此 Noies gate 就是當輸入訊號很小時自動將輸出關掉,只有當訊號大於設定值時才會恢復,如此就不會只錄雜音了。 Noise Gate開得太弱,雜音沒辦法消除,開得太強,吉他的音色 (Tone) 又變得很奇怪。       Phaser, Flanger, Chorus, Reverb, Echo 和 Delay 它們的原理大致上都一樣,就是將訊號延後一點時間再和原來的訊號合併輸出,再由延後的時間長短而分成這些的效果器。 延後時間在15ms以下的是Flanger. 因為和訊號抵消的結果,產生了像噴射機一樣的聲音。 延後時間在10ms到25ms的是Chorus,聽起來像兩個樂器同時在彈。 延後時間在25ms到50ms是Echo ,50ms以上是大多數Delay 的範圍。 Reverb 和Echo不同的地方是Echo像Delay,會將原訊號延後後反覆輸出,而Reverb模擬環境回音,重複訊號的特定頻率,因此每一次延後的訊號都會不一樣。 Phaser原理和Flanger差不多,是早期沒有延遲電路下發展出的。等到真正能延遲相位的效果器出來以後,反而聲音不太一樣,就只好叫做Flanger了。     Wah-wah 基本上像吉他上了音色扭,早期wah-wah還沒被發明時吉他手就是這樣製造wah-wah 的效果,只要你將音色扭很快的轉來轉去,你就可以聽到wah的效果,當然真正的Wah-wah要好多了。 Wah-wah Pedal 是一種電吉他效果踏板,可改變吉他信號的音調和頻率,以模仿人聲說出擬聲名稱“哇”,從而產生獨特的聲音。 Wah-wah效果起源於 1920 年代,小號或長號演奏者發現他們可以通過將靜音器移入和移出樂器的鈴聲來產生富有表現力的哭聲。 後來當哇音踏板被發明時,這被用於電吉他的電子電路模擬。 它由演奏者的腳在連接到電位器的搖擺踏板上的運動控制。       逆月音樂為大家提供最好的效果器 – 立即遊覽   __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________     Introduction to basic guitar effects     Guitarists like to use effects, but many people don't really know how to use effects, and there are very few people who understand the principles of effects. For some people who play guitar, the only reason why they are willing to play guitar is the wonderful guitar effect. It is common that after adding a lot of effects, it is impossible to distinguish the sound of the guitar, and it becomes a mess. One of the weaknesses of guitarists is that they want to add effects when they have them, regardless of whether they are useful or not. For beginners who want to buy their first effects device, there are too many effects, so they are easily overwhelmed. Effects can be divided into two categories.  One is to change the size of the guitar signal, that is, to adjust the amplitude, such as Distortion, Compressor, Noise gate, Wah-wah, etc.  The other is the time to delay the signal, such as Chorus, Flanger, Reverb, Delay, etc. Here we will introduce the commonly used guitar effects.      Distortion  Basically, the output signal is distorted because the amplifier cannot reach the power that should be output. This distortion generally makes the original sine wave signal become a square wave. In other words, the amplifier is the upper part of the sine wave is removed because the output power cannot be reached, but to us, the amplifier seems to have added a lot of overtones that were not in the original signal. This overtone is the kind of sound that we hear when we listen to the distortion. The more the distortion, the more the waveform is cut, and the more numb it sounds. Because this kind of sound comes from the amplifier or effector, not from the guitar. The difference between Distortion and Overdrive Some guitarists frequently use overdrive and distortion interchangeably. In fact, you often see effects called overdrive/distortion. Technically, the sound of overdrive is to simulate a vacuum tube speaker with a natural warm sound, while distortion adds more penetration and crushing effects. It can be simply assumed that all distortions sound the same, but in fact, there are subtle and rich nuances in various distortions. This is why there are many different distortion effects.     Limiter & Compressor The main function of Limiter is to change the size of the output, but it only changes the volume, not the waveform of the sound. When the input signal is too large, the Limiter can protect the amplifier or speaker and limit the output signal to a certain limit. The function of Compressor is more complicated. It not only limits the size of the output. When the input signal is too small, it can be amplified to a strong enough range first, and the part that is too large can be compressed, so that the entire signal can become more uniform.     Noise gate Noise gate can filter out the noise, but in fact it cannot really filter out the noise, because the machine cannot distinguish what is the noise and what is the signal to be recorded, but when there is no input signal, the noise can be heard clearly. When the input signal is large When the noise is less important, the Noies gate automatically turns off the output when the input signal is very small, and will only recover when the signal is greater than the set value, so that it will not only record noise. When the Noise Gate is turned on too weakly, the noise cannot be eliminated, and when it is turned on too strong, the tone of the guitar becomes strange again.     Phaser, Flanger, Chorus, Reverb, Echo and Delay Their principle is roughly the same, that is, the signal is delayed for a little time and then combined with the original signal for output, and then divided into these effectors by the length of the delay. The delay time is less than 15ms is Flanger. Because of the cancellation of the signal, it produces a sound like a jet. Chorus has a delay between 10ms and 25ms. It sounds like two instruments are playing at the same time. The delay time is Echo from 25ms to 50ms, and the range of most delays is above 50ms. The difference between Reverb and Echo is that Echo is like Delay, which delays the original signal and repeatedly outputs it, while Reverb simulates environmental echo and repeats the specific frequency of the signal, so the signal after each delay will be different. The principle of Phaser is similar to that of Flanger, and it was developed in the early stage without a delay circuit. After the effects that can really delay the phase came out, but the sound was different, it had to be called Flanger.     Wah-wah Basically, it’s like a guitar with timbre twisting. In the early days when wah-wah was not invented, guitarists created the wah-wah effect like this. As long as you twist the timbre quickly, you can hear the wah effect. Of course the real Wah-wah is much better. Wah-wah Pedal is an electric guitar effect pedal that can change the pitch and frequency of the guitar signal to imitate the human voice and say the onomatopoeic name "Wah", thereby producing a unique sound. The Wah-wah effect originated in the 1920s, when trumpet or trombone players discovered that they could produce expressive crying by moving the mute in and out of the instrument’s bell. Later when the wah-wah pedal was invented, it was used to simulate the electronic circuit of an electric guitar. It is controlled by the movement of the player's foot on the swing pedal connected to the potentiometer.     SMR Music provides the best effects for everyone – Visit Now

7個令你更集中上Online Course的秘決     盡量減少干擾 這是十分重要的一點,你必須排除所有干擾才能集中,尤其是在無休止的分心時代! 有了手機、電腦、通訊應用程式、社交媒體,它們都很容易分心。雖然不可能完全消除生活中的干擾,但盡可能減少它們是很重要。 這些干擾堆積如山,不知不覺中花了你的寶貴時間。減少您能夠分心的事情,以便您可以全神貫注於手頭的任務。 特別要避免社交媒體,當今時代最耗時和最大的干擾之一。 您可以將手機設置為請勿打擾、靜音或飛行模式,或使用應用程序或瀏覽器擴展程序來限制您在各種平台上的時間。嘗試僅在休息時使用社交媒體,或在完成某些任務時作為一種激勵手段。     建立一個舒適的學習空間 舒適是成功學習的關鍵!如果你對自己學習的空間不滿意,你可能無法達成很多目標。  這意味著你可能需要添加一盞燈,這樣就不會對長期看著螢幕的眼睛造成太大影響,並確保你有一張舒適椅子,你可以舒適地坐上幾個小時,可以讓你坐直的書桌或桌子是理想的選擇。 要做到集中註意力,你必須找出最所需並對你有利的的環境條件。 這可以是一盞燈,這可以是一張椅子,又或者附近有小吃和飲料。  遠離家庭干擾。 這意味著遠離電視、遊戲機或舒適的沙發。如果可能,請在上課時間關閉學習空間的門。 這將阻止房子其他部分的噪音,並防止好奇的家庭寵物或弟弟妹妹撞到你的教室。 確定為自己的學習成功做好準備很重要!     保持一致的時間表 線上學習的最大的好處可能會轉化成為對你不利的因素,不必每天上課,甚至不必真正見到教授或老師,你很容易感到解放。 但是,不要讓這種自由讓你懶惰! 線上學習看起來容易,可以不定時上課,亦或者每隔一段時間再上,取決於您的課程量。在考慮如何專注於在線課程時,一致性很容易成為成功學習中最重要但被低估的方面,計劃讓課堂在每週或每天特定時間進行能幫助你的學習。 帶有每週日曆和時間表,以便提醒您上課時間和學習的時間。     更新你的電子裝置及設備 如果你在線上課程一直斷開連接或無法正常聽和看,這絕對無助於你的注意力。 所以,更新你現有的電子裝置及設備並確保它們能正在運作是非常重要,無論是你的互聯網連接還是你的耳機。  你需要熟悉教授用的在線平台,這樣您就不會在課堂上試圖弄清楚並浪費時間。  另外,一般使用電腦會比電話較合適的。      充足的睡眠 獲得充足的睡眠有助於保持注意力並提高工作效率。 盡量保持在線學習時間表的一致性和正常性,包括起床和就寢時間。 事實證明,適當的夜間睡眠有助於提高成績、培養更好的記憶力和改善情緒。 睡眠對學習和記憶有重要作用。睡眠不足很難集中注意力、學習新知,也沒有足夠時間記憶。 此外,大腦在睡覺時間負責處理情緒,如果睡眠時間過短,將導致更多的負面情緒和消極反應。長期睡眠不足會增加患情緒障礙的風險。     制定每堂的目標清單 擁有完全的自主權和自決權可能令人迷失或沒有方向。永遠不會錯的一件事是擁有一個目標清單,這樣你就可能按進度學習! 這將大有幫助,尤其是在你特別忙碌的時候,制定清單是提醒自己到期的好方法,並確定何時才能真正有時間完成需要完成的項目。 畢竟,細節決定成敗。這也將幫助你分配你的能量,讓你在承擔多項任務時變得靈活。     記得休息 當你在學習時,教授或講師不會讓你休息 15 分鐘,並且在課程之間你可能沒有 10 或 15 分鐘的時間來放鬆。  不要讓自己太辛苦,確保您一次不超過幾個小時的不間斷工作。這不僅僅是一項有益於您自己的健康的建議,它將幫助您放鬆並重新煥發活力,有時還會對你的學習產生全新的觀點。不要只為自己休息一下,為您的工作及其質量休息一下。因此,安排線上課堂時間時,盡可能不要立即緊隨接在你工作後。 此外,如果您口渴,則很難集中註意力。定期補水很重要,所以考慮帶一杯水到你的學習空間。     逆月音樂提供遙距課堂教授不同的音樂範疇   ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   7 secrets to make you more focused on Online Course   Minimize distraction This is a very important point, you must eliminate all interference to concentrate, especially in the era of endless distractions! With mobile phones, computers, communication applications, and social media, they are all easily distracted. Although it is impossible to completely eliminate the disturbances in life, it is important to reduce them as much as possible. These disturbances pile up like a mountain, and unknowingly spend your precious time. Reduce the amount of distractions you can, so that you can concentrate on the task at hand. In particular, avoid social media, one of the most time-consuming and biggest distractions of today's era. You can set your phone to do not disturb, silent or airplane mode, or use apps or browser extensions to limit your time on various platforms. Try to use social media only during breaks, or as an incentive when completing certain tasks.     Create a comfortable learning space Comfort is the key to successful learning! If you are not satisfied with your learning space, you may not be able to achieve many goals. This means that you may need to add a light so that it does not affect the eyes that look at the screen for a long time, and make sure you have a comfortable chair where you can sit comfortably for several hours and allow you to sit upright. A desk or table is ideal. To be able to concentrate, you must find the environmental conditions that are most needed and beneficial to you. This can be a light, this can be a chair, or there are snacks and drinks nearby. Stay away from home disturbances. This means staying away from TVs, game consoles or comfortable sofas. If possible, please close the door of the study space during class time. This will stop noise from other parts of the house and prevent curious family pets or younger siblings from hitting your classroom. It is important to be sure to prepare for your own learning success!     Maintain a consistent schedule The greatest benefit of online learning may turn into a disadvantage to you. You don't have to go to class every day, or even see a professor or teacher. You can easily feel liberated. But don't let this freedom make you lazy! Online learning seems easy. You can take classes from time to time, or you can take them again at regular intervals, depending on your course volume. When considering how to focus on online courses, consistency can easily become the most important but underestimated aspect of successful learning. Plan to have class at specific times each week or every day that can help you learn. With a weekly calendar and timetable to remind you of class time and study time.     Update your electronic devices and equipment If you keep disconnecting or unable to listen and watch normally during online courses, this will definitely not help your attention. Therefore, it is very important to update your existing electronic devices and equipment and ensure that they are working, whether it is your Internet connection or your headset. You need to be familiar with the online platform used by the professor so that you don’t try to figure it out and waste time in class. In addition, it is generally more appropriate to use a computer than a telephone.   Enough sleep Getting enough sleep helps maintain concentration and improve work efficiency. Try to maintain the consistency and normality of the online learning schedule, including wake-up and bedtime. Facts have proved that proper night sleep can help improve performance, develop better memory and improve mood. Sleep plays an important role in learning and memory. Lack of sleep makes it difficult to concentrate, learn new knowledge, and don’t have enough time to remember. In addition, the brain is responsible for processing emotions during sleep time. If the sleep time is too short, it will lead to more negative emotions and negative reactions. Long-term lack of sleep increases the risk of mood disorders.     Develop a list of goals for each class Having complete autonomy and self-determination can be disorienting or directionless. One thing you can never go wrong is to have a list of goals so you can learn on schedule! This will help a lot, especially when you are particularly busy. Making a checklist is a good way to remind yourself that it’s due and to determine when you really have time to complete the project that needs to be completed. After all, details determine success or failure. This will also help you distribute your energy and make you flexible when taking on multiple tasks.     Remember to rest When you are studying, the professor or lecturer will not let you rest for 15 minutes, and you may not have 10 or 15 minutes to relax between classes. Don't let yourself be too hard, make sure you don't work more than a few hours at a time without interruption. This is not just a suggestion that is good for your own health, it will help you relax, and sometimes it will give you a new perspective on your learning. Don't just take a break for yourself, take a break for your work and its quality. Therefore, when arranging online class time, try not to immediately follow your work. In addition, if you are thirsty, it is difficult to concentrate. Regular hydration is important, so consider bringing a glass of water to your study space.     SMR Music provides Online Classes of different music categories

學識這4點為自己選擇最合適的吉他帶!! | Learn these 4 points to choose the most suitable guitar strap for yourself!!

學識這4點為自己選擇最合適的吉他帶!!     在決定特定吉他背帶是否適合您時,需要注意 4 個關鍵事項:   長度 寬度 物料 鎖定方式   要購買由優質材料製成的吉他帶,劣質產品可能會導致你的吉他損壞。你不希望吉他帶有任何縫合上的鬆動,或皮革染料擦到你的吉他上。          長度 吉他帶的長度是需要考慮的最重要因素之一。 你不希望它太長或太短。   如果太長,樂器會在你的身體上坐得太低,使指法變得困難。   太短的帶會使樂器過於緊貼你的胸部,這又會對你的演奏能力產生負面影響。   標準肩帶長度可在 100 至 150cm左右之間調節,這幾乎適合任何人。   但如果你彈貝斯,身高特別高,或者你喜歡將吉他掛得很低的感覺,又或者以上任何組合,你可以選擇超長吉他帶,通常可延伸至 175cm或更多。     當你去買吉他帶時,你需要確保它會調整到你想要的長度。 大多數吉他帶都有合適的範圍,應該適合但要確保,尤其是如果你特別高,確保帶足夠長。         寬度 吉他帶的寬度主要影響背帶靠在脖子或肩膀上的方式。 太窄的背帶可能會扎進你的身體裡,而且它很快就會老化,特別是如果你的吉他很重。   吉他背帶的寬度通常從薄的5cm到厚的 10cm 不等。   一般選擇較粗的吉他帶的原因:   主要用於支持較重的樂器  為長時間的彈奏提供額外的舒適度 通常較粗的背帶也更貴。   然而更厚並不總是意味著更好,因為許多使用較輕樂器的演奏者發現厚帶子不必要地笨重,而且實際上比更薄的帶子更不舒服。   背帶的寬度可能不是最重要的部分,但它會影響肩帶的舒適度和移動性。   如果背帶太窄,它不會將重量分散到您的肩膀上,並且可能很快就會變得不舒服。   如果它太寬,那麼它可能會限制機動性。         物料 用於製作特定吉他背帶的材料組合可能是所有細節中最重要的,因為它最終決定了舒適度、性能和耐用性,當然還有價格。   吉他背帶的 4 種最常用的材料是: 尼龍 棉布 皮革 乙烯基塑料 (Vinyl)   接下來,當我們比較市場上最好的吉他背帶時,您會看到這些材料的類似組合在每個價位上的使用情況。   尼龍 大多數便宜的吉他背帶都是由尼龍製成的。 想想便宜的安全帶材料。 這就是他們的樣子。   優點:成本低 缺點:不是很舒服,看起來很便宜 即使尼龍背帶通常也有皮革末端(吉他上背帶別針連接的部分),但不一定是絕對的。       皮革 如果您想在風格、強度和舒適度方面更上一層樓,那麼您可能需要考慮皮革背帶。 皮革背帶可能有點硬,剛開始使用時不太舒服,但隨著您佩戴它,它會變得越來越舒適和靈活。   優點:更堅固,更耐用 缺點:需要一點時間才能適應,更貴       棉布 你也可以得到棉質背帶。 這些可以很好地替代尼龍帶。 它們有點柔軟,不太可能切入你的肩膀,但仍然相當便宜,但通常比尼龍貴一點。   優點:比尼龍更舒適 缺點:不如皮革結實,比尼龍稍貴       乙烯基塑料 (Vinyl) Vinyl, 可能是平均而言最昂貴的肩帶,但通常也非常舒適和結實。 他們有一個非常不同的經典外觀。 不適合所有人,但如果您喜歡這種風格,那麼您應該考慮使用Vinyl。   它們通常很厚,是較重吉他的最佳選擇。   優點:時尚,堅固,舒適 缺點:較貴         鎖定方式 部分演奏者對於那些連接吉他的標準皮革環都存在一些顧慮, 基於許多因素,它們有時可能會滑倒,例如:    演奏者在舞台上的移動  吉他太重  背帶末端本身的磨損   這就是為什麼許多演奏者只會使用定制的“鎖定機制”製成的背帶,例如背帶鎖或夾子鎖,這使得吉他和背帶幾乎不可能意外分離。   但另一方面,許多其他演奏者認為這種鎖定完全沒有必要。     吉他背帶鎖能提供額外保護 一旦你決定了最適合你的背帶,你還應該考慮加上背帶鎖。 背帶鎖將你的吉他更牢固地固定在背帶上,尤其是當你要保護昂貴的吉他時。 吉他有時會從背帶上滑落,這不是很常見,但它可能發生。   充其量它會在演出或練習期間打斷你的演奏,但總好比最壞的情況是你可能會嚴重損壞您的吉他。     為您的吉他選擇合適的配件很重要。 尤其是吉他背帶。 在舞台上表演時,您的肩帶可以幫助您提高表演質量。       逆月音樂為大家提供最好的吉他背帶   ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   Learn these 4 points to choose the most suitable guitar strap for yourself!!     When deciding whether a particular guitar strap is right for you, there are 4 key things to keep in mind:   Length Width Materials Locking method   Buy guitar straps made of high-quality materials. Inferior products may cause damage to your guitar. You don't want the guitar to have any loose stitching or leather dye rubbing on your guitar.         Length The length of the guitar strap is one of the most important factors to consider. You don't want it to be too long or too short.   If it is too long, the instrument will sit too low on your body, making fingering difficult.   A strap that is too short will make the instrument too close to your chest, which in turn will have a negative impact on your performance.   The length of the standard shoulder strap can be adjusted between about 100 to 150cm, which suits almost anyone.   But if you play bass and are very tall, or you like the feeling of hanging the guitar very low, or any combination of the above, you can choose an ultra-long guitar strap, which can usually extend to 175cm or more.     When you go to buy a guitar strap, you need to make sure it will be adjusted to the length you want. Most guitar straps have a suitable range and should fit but make sure, especially if you are particularly tall, make sure the strap is long enough.     Width The width of the guitar strap mainly affects the way the strap rests on the neck or shoulders. A strap that is too narrow may stick into your body, and it will age quickly, especially if your guitar is heavy.   The width of a guitar strap usually ranges from a thin 5cm to a thick 10cm.   Reasons for choosing a thicker guitar strap:  Mainly used to support heavier instruments  Provide extra comfort for long time playing Usually thicker straps are also more expensive.   However, thicker does not always mean better, because many players who use lighter instruments find that thicker straps are unnecessarily bulky and are actually more uncomfortable than thinner straps.   The width of the strap may not be the most important part, but it will affect the comfort and mobility of the strap.   If the strap is too narrow, it will not spread the weight to your shoulders and may become uncomfortable quickly.   If it is too wide, then it may limit mobility.         Materials The combination of materials used to make a particular guitar strap is probably the most important of all the details, because it ultimately determines comfort, performance and durability, and of course the price.   The 4 most commonly used materials for guitar straps are: Nylon Cotton Leather Vinyl   Next, when we compare the best guitar straps on the market, you will see how similar combinations of these materials are used at each price point.   Nylon Most cheap guitar straps are made of nylon. Think about cheap seat belt materials. This is what they look like.   Advantages: low cost Disadvantages: not very comfortable, looks very cheap Even though nylon straps usually have leather ends (the part where the strap pins connect on the guitar), they are not necessarily absolute.       Leather If you want to go to the next level in terms of style, strength and comfort, then you may want to consider leather straps. The leather strap may be a bit stiff and uncomfortable at first, but as you wear it, it will become more and more comfortable and flexible.   Advantages: stronger, more durable Disadvantages: it takes a little time to adapt, more expensive       Cotton You can also get cotton straps. These can be a good substitute for nylon straps. They are a bit soft and unlikely to cut into your shoulders, but still quite cheap, but usually a bit more expensive than nylon.   Advantages: more comfortable than nylon Disadvantages: not as strong as leather, slightly more expensive than nylon       Vinyl Vinyl, may be the most expensive shoulder strap on average, but it is usually very comfortable and strong. They have a very different classic appearance. Not for everyone, but if you like this style, then you should consider Vinyl.   They are usually thick and are the best choice for heavier guitars.   Advantages: stylish, sturdy, comfortable Disadvantages: more expensive     Locking method Some players have some concerns about the standard leather rings that connect to the guitar. They may sometimes slip and fall due to many factors, such as:    The movement of the performer on the stage  The guitar is too heavy  Wear and tear on the end of the strap   This is why many players only use straps made of custom "locking mechanisms", such as strap locks or clip locks, which makes it almost impossible to accidentally separate the guitar and strap.   But on the other hand, many other players think that this kind of locking is completely unnecessary.     Guitar strap lock provides extra protection Once you have decided on the best strap for you, you should also consider adding a strap lock. The strap lock secures your guitar to the strap more firmly, especially when you want to protect an expensive guitar. The guitar sometimes slips off the strap. This is not very common, but it can happen.   At best it will interrupt your performance during performances or practice, but at worst it is like the worst-case scenario is that you may severely damage your guitar.     It is important to choose the right accessories for your guitar. Especially the guitar strap. When performing on stage, your shoulder strap can help you improve the quality of your performance.     Six Months Rebellion provides the best guitar straps for you!!
