The benefit of learning to play acoustic guitar is that you can practice anywhere - and you are going to be practicing a lot! You are not restricted to being close to an amplifier socket, but apart from that there is not all that much difference between learning acoustic and electric guitar.

The most important thing you must do is to make sure that your guitar is properly tuned. Invest in a set of pitch pipes or tuning forks, and learn how to get each string exactly in tune. If not, then you will never develop an 'ear' for your strings and their pitch. There are lots of sites online that explain how to properly tune your instrument - and remember that the guitar is a musical instrument and not a toy.

A good tip right at the start is to begin strengthening your grip: you can do this any way that suits you but there are inexpensive grip strengtheners available that you can use daily. Along with this, you will have to develop calluses on your fingertips, and while that will be painful for a time you can help it along by rubbing some surgical spirit in to them. All good players go through this, so don't think you are damaging your fingers when the pain starts - it is normal.

Get to know your instrument. Learn what the various components are and what their function is, and check out how the tension and length of your strings change the tone. Practice with steel and nylon strings, and use those that give you the sound that you want. The same is true of your pick, or plectrum. You can use a soft or hard pick so test a few and use the one that provides you with the type of sound you want: a soft tone or a harsh twangy sound.

A lot will depend on the type of music you want to play: classical, pop, country or folk, or perhaps some style that you have developed yourself. Keep in mind that nylon strings are easier on your fingers, so switch to these if you are starting to cut your fingers with the steel, then back to steel once you have toughened up a bit.

Get online and download some tunes that you like; it would be great if you could also download the sheet music showing the chords needed to strum along. With acoustic guitar you will have to spend time learning chords, and not just the chords, but the various ways of playing them on the fret. That's why it is important to get to know your fret well, so that you understand the various ways in which to get the same note using each of the fret positions for each of your strings.

The best way to learn is to practice playing along with some of your favorite tunes. Try to find a guitar learning book with a CD or DVD that lets you hear how the lessons should sound, and also gives you some backing tracks to play along to. The more you practice the more you will learn, and once you have mastered a few of the essential chords you should start to learn about keys and a little about the theory of music. This will help you when you begin to practice the more difficult and advanced pieces.

If you are finding it hard to play a particular piece, or even a particular chord such as barre chords that most people find difficult to finger correctly when they first try, keep at it. Keep practicing the difficult stuff and it will eventually come to you. You will never get anywhere if you give up on the difficult and stick to the easy. You will also find it easier to get started learning to play acoustic guitar if you have a buddy learning with you. Or perhaps they are learning bass and you acoustic - you could jam together at least once a week to lighten up once in a while.

Learning acoustic guitar should be fun, and you will have more fun playing along with somebody else than just by yourself. That's also why you should practice with tunes you like, rather than just those that happen to be in the learning book you are using. If you can't find a book with your tunes then look on the internet. You will find standard sheet music and guitar tab, and you can try both if you want. You will be a more accomplished player if you understand how to read music, but it is not essential. You can play without.

Finally, a few words on purchasing your first guitar. If you aren't sure whether or not you want to play seriously, buy a cheap guitar at first. There's no point in wasting money. However, once you find that this is what you want to do, then get the best you can possibly afford. There are no doubts at all that with guitars, money buys quality.

So, get started and take the most important piece of advice of all. Practice, practice, practice, and once you feel you have practiced enough, put in another half hour. It is easy to get started learning how to play acoustic guitar - its keeping doing it where most people fail...

Violet Hill

French only physical CD release of the first single lifted from the British band's 2008 album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends. Features 'Violet Hill' plus 'Lost?'. EMI. 2008.
Customer Review: Harder Coldplay
There is no doubt the feeling of Coldplay's deep and soulful style that has shown to keep up with the times. This time around, on the groups' latest single, Voilet Hill, the first single from the upcoming album from their upcoming album Viva La Vida, shows a much harder and darker edge to Chris Martin and the band's deep alternative following. The song is very eye-popping, but still shows that Coldplay has kept making good songs, after the massive success of X & Y and A Rush Of Blood To the Head. I definitely know this song beats other songs like the so-called American Idol winner David Cook's Time Of My Life, and other songs that are downloadable. I hope the upcoming album is worth it for Coldplay fans. Violet Hill already is a mountain. Song: B
Customer Review: Can't ever go wrong with Coldplay
It was a relief to see Coldplay still has it after all the years of silence! Great song.

MTV Unplugged

On March 6th, Julieta Venegas recorded her MTV Unplugged at the Churubusco Studies in Mexico City, where she presented new songs besides interpreting some of her greatest hits in an intimate atmosphere to a live audience.

This production counts on important and interesting collaborations like two time Oscar winner, Gustavo Santaolalla, who accompanied her with the banjo and sang the chorus of the song "Algun Dia (Someday)". Brazilian singer, Marisa Monte featured in song "Illusion", a new and beautiful song that combines the Spanish and Portuguese language.

Also Mala Rodriguez joined Julieta and included a strong hip hop movement to the song "Eres Para Mi (You are for Me)", whereas the vocalist of Porter, Juan Carlos had a unique participation in "Algun Dia (Someday)".

In addition, the very talented Natalia Lafourcade comprised of the orchestra and played several instruments during the night, whereas the talented musician and composer, Jacques Morelenbaum accompanied Julieta on the cello in "De mis Pasos (From my foot steps)".

Customer Review: A must have DVD - Compralo si o si
Como se ha escrito anteriormente este Unplugged es uno de los mejores en lengua castellana hasta la fecha (casi rivaliza con el Hello, el Unplugged del gran Charly Garcia) y consituye un hito en la carrera de Julieta Venegas mostrandonos asi el porque el maestro Joaquin Sabina, el mejor cantautor, ha dicho de ella que es una genia. Tocando con maestria varios instrumentos e imprimiendo sentimiento a cada canción que interpreta Julieta nos lleva por un repaso de su discografia, a la cual le imprime otro matiz, de una manera tan maravillosa que los 15 temas pareceria que acaban demasiado pronto. La calidad de la producción musical es impecable, los arreglos magnificos y los músicos en total sintonía con la idea que Julieta tiene del concierto. Imprescindible en cualquier colección. Gracias Julieta... creo que Sabina ya tiene su contraparte femenina. A masterpiece. So far the best Unplugged of this decade. Julieta performs great and also in a unique way, full of feeling. Ms. Venegas rocks ! Do a favor yourself and order this DVD now.
Muy gratamente soprendido por este material, es simplemente estupendo, Julieta se luce en todas suis interpretaciones dandoles nuevo matizes y colores, que decir de sus invitados , todos de primer nivel,,, el que en verdad me sorprendio mucho -y como dice el post de arriba- no conocia en nada a JUAN SON, que voz y que manera de interpretar. me muero por conseguir algo de el,, este dvd es algo que no deje faltar en su coleccion...altamente recomendable...

NEW MUSIC MONTHLY July 2001 Coldplay cover, Placebo

COLDPLAY cover, Placebo & Air articles *comes with a CD

Have you ever wanted to do something excitingly challenging to you, while knowing it's good for you and won't require lots of boring work from you. Then, that something is clog dancing, also called clogging. You can do it solo, with a partner, or within a group. All three ways are fun, fun, fun. Also, if you join an organized clogging group, you'll find yourself having a new set friends while becoming more acceptable to yourself and your peers. Since clogging groups are special in their own way, you will be, too.

What is clogging?

Several sources describe the American form of clogging as hillbilly-tapping or foot-stomping folk dancing, where the dancer makes musically synchronized sounds with his/her feet. In the past, it was done to mountain and bluegrass music with high-kicking leg movements combined with foot shuffling, stomping, and tapping. Nowadays, it's done to many kinds of music the same way. Kids and teenagers generally do it at high speed, faster and more precise than adults.

Where did clogging come from?

Clogging dates back to the 16th-Century-or-prior European folk dances and jigs. It's been traced to the dances done by the Scotch-Irish steppers, Dutch cloggers (done in wooden shoes or in soft shoes having wooden soles), Euro-Russian gypsies, and English-French-German folk-dancers. In this continent, it evolved into its own early style through the immigrants who settled in Canada, the Appalachian Mountains, and the hill regions of the South. Among all the early settlers who liked to stomp and dance were the Native Americans, frontiersmen, African Americans, cowboys, farmers, ranchers, and the backwoods, hill-abiding, and small-town folks. All of these regional sects have influenced the clogging styles in one way or another at one time or another. Today, it's being shaped further through contemporary clogging groups, and through the various kinds of modern music in addition to the traditional ones.

How is clogging taught or done?

Generally, clogging is learned in groups under an instructor who carefully teaches its terminology and step-routines, and who makes sure it's done to the time of the music. However, if no such group is nearby, instructional videos and DVD's can be found in a few dance shops and on the Internet.

Briefly, the basic clog step is a double-toe tap done with one of your feet, followed by stepping on the balls of each foot. First, starting with your left foot, brush your toe forward and then backward, tap-tap, and then step on the same foot (ball). Immediately following that left tap-tap-ball movement, step onto your right ball, and then step back onto your left one, once more. That's it, the basic step, left-toe-tap-forward, left-toe-tap-backward, left-step-ball, right-step-ball, left-step-ball.

Now, repeat this step movement starting with your right foot, and then again with your left one, alternately. Once you have learned to repeat this step continuously in a light-footed manner, you will be able to do the slight variations it easily. As your balance and knee-bending capabilities increase, you'll move into longer and slightly varied routines based on these steps. Additionally, you'll be able to do them solo, with a partner, or within a group as in line dancing or as a team. You can also develop your own solo freestyle routines.

Note: the initial double-toe tap of the basic step can also be done as a heel-toe tap as it's sometimes done in certain parts of the country. The basic movement is same as above, except the initial toe-tap is replaced with a heel-tap, as heel-tap-forward, toe-tap-backward, step-ball, step-ball, step-ball and so forth.

Where is it done?

Clogging can be learned or done anywhere, out in the country, or in the villages, towns, and cities, usually on a fairly hard surface. Today, organized clogging is done mostly within local clogging groups under the leaderships of certified instructors. These groups meet and practice in schools, gymnasiums, churches, civic centers, ballrooms, garages, or homes large enough to accommodate them. Membership includes all ages and types, both adults and youngsters. These groups often have members who compete regularly at regional clogging events in addition to their having leisurely in-group fun. Many of the competitive dancers are young people, who can learn it easily, and do it fast.

Because these groups are generally nonprofit and semi-private, only a few of them are listed in the yellow pages. Still, clogging groups exist everywhere in North America, similar to the way square-dance clubs do. If you have a square-dance club nearby, chances are they can point you toward a clogging group. Some clogging groups can also be found on the Internet.

Additionally, in the regions where clogging has been done routinely for decades, the local cloggers might get together spontaneously without much organization. These cloggers will show up at local parks, community events, or county fairs, where small portable wooden clogging floors and recorded music are available to them and anyone else who wants to try it. A fiddler, guitarist, or banjo player might show up there, too.

How is clogging organized?

Modern clogging groups are organized under nonprofit federations. That is, each group operates under its own bylaws and the general provisions of a state board or council. The state board or council might sponsor annual workshops for the local chartered groups to attend. Such workshops offer expert clogging instruction, demonstrations, competitions, and entertainment, like, performances, games, or parties of sorts. They'll also provide displays of recent music, cue sheets, equipment sources, and other clogging information.

What does it cost?

Generally, group members pay annual dues to keep the group solvent, about $20-50. The dues cover the cost of rental space, member insurance, and a newsletter. For guest beginners, the only cost is for the instruction, $10-50, for about 10 weeks of classes, one-to-two nights a week. If you decide to go further into clogging after graduating, you'll need leather clogging shoes with "jingle" (double-action) taps attached to them, $35-70. The dues and shoes are the main costs. Normally, the dress codes are casual, T-shirts and jeans or shorts, for weekly lessons or practice sessions. You won't need special clothing unless you decide to perform competitively with the group, or to perform with them entertainingly for local charities, senior centers, conventions, and festivals. Even so, the outfits often are homemade.

What else?

Clogging groups are family friendly and socially fun. Because children are included in them, these groups maintain high behavior standards for its membership. They hold many get-togethers, potlucks, holiday parties, and fun times for everyone. Yet, some groups are setup for the grownups or for youth only. This condition occurs for the older grownups whose kids have left home, or for the youth who travel frequently to many competitions. Still other groups might be subdivided into both grownups and youth for training purposes. This kind of organization means participation of some kind of is available to almost everyone there. So, if you are looking for a clean, fun way to burn off your energy, and to gain some of it back with other benefits at the same time, try clog dancing. Your fancy footwork will glide you gracefully over the floor, faster and more uniquely than most folks can.

"The difference between success and failure is information," notes Ritch Esra, and he should know. Along with his partner, Stephen Trumbull, Esra is a leading part of the number one most-reliable source of information on "who's who" and "who does what" in the music business. Best of all, they can tell you where everybody is located.


The Music Business Registry ( publishes five directories: the "A&R Registry," the "Music Publisher Registry," the "Music Business Attorney Registry" the "Film and Television Music Guide," and the "Record Producer and Recording Engineer Directory." For many in the business, these are indispensable reference works.

"The directories give everyone vital, accurate and the most up-to-date information they need to contact the entire A&R, music publishing, legal and film/TV music communities," Esra states. From comparing notes with dozens of professionals in all of these areas of expertise, I can tell you that no one disputes his claim.

More than one music industry executive has told me that the Music Business Registry publications are worth their weight in platinum. Tess Taylor, president of NARIP (National Association of Record Industry Professionals), says "I couldn't get through one day without the directories from the Music Business Registry. These publications are the finest in the business."

Each directory tells you how to reach industry professionals by regular mail, e-mail, direct dial telephone and fax. The books provide each person's exact title, street address, the name of their assistant and the styles of music in which each executive specializes. Web sites are also included.


The world of the A&R executive is exciting but ever-changing. Which is to say, there's a lot of turnover in this part of the industry. So much turnover, in fact, that the A&R Registry is completely updated and reprinted every eight weeks, whereas the publisher volume is biannual and the other books come out yearly.


Created in partnership with RPM Direct, the "Record Producer & Recording Engineer Directory" presents 1,700 of today's leading Record Producers, Recording Engineers & Remixers throughout the US, Canada and Europe in every genre of music. Included in the book are:

(1) Complete contact information for every Producer, Remixer & Recording Engineer along with a list of their credits.

(2) Producer/Engineer/Remixer Management Companies including a complete
staff listing as well as full client rosters.

(3) A Complete Index to easily locate any producer.

(4) Several Interviews and articles with today's leading Producers & Engineers.

No wonder you can find the Music Business Registry's publications in the offices of top record company executives, music publishers, artist managers, agents, music attorneys, recording artists, studios and other music business professionals everywhere from Los Angeles to London, New York to Nashville, Chicago to Copenhagen, Toronto to Tokyo, Stockholm to Sydney and Minneapolis to Munich.
