An Exciting Ibanez Prestige

If only money grew on trees in the backyard. If I had more money around Christmas time I would love to purchase thisĀ ibanez prestige, check it out at MusiciansFriend.com that I stumbled upon today. My nephew has been wanting an electric guitar for the past couple of years for Christmas, this year I would love to see his dream come true.

Tilling Gone Sour Today

Spent a good two hours getting the garden ready to till and when I went to dig out the tiller that I put in one of the out buildings last fall I wasn’t happy to see that some how it had fallen over on its side. Of course all of the gas had trickled out of the tank throughout the last few months and it was a total mess.

It really sucked that I couldn’t get it cleaned up and filled up and started up today in order to finish what I had set out to do today. But it was getting late and I still had dinner to fix, so it looks like tomorrow will be the day that I hopefully get the garden tilled and ready for planting. It is all ready the first week of April for goodness sakes.

Today’s Robotic Vocoder-ized Vocals

Spent some time online on the well known Guitar Center website the other night. I always find the coolest musical instruments and other music related products there that helps me get an idea of things that I can use for the numerous and never ending gifts that are needed to be given all year round.

I had never heard of “Auto-Tune” at first glance I assumed it was something that helped you tune your instrument but I quickly learned that it isn’t that at all. The first well known use of this Auto-Tune for vocals was when Cher belted out her famous song “Believe” which was recorded and released back in 1998. Something we would listen to on a record player much like the one you can find at http://www.guitarcenter.com/Crosley/Cruiser-Record-Player.gc.

Check out this video from YouTube of Cher’s well receivedĀ  song “Believe” where you can hear for yourself how this turns a “normal” voice sound like robotic vocoder-ized vocals which has become all the rage in the hip-hop and rap music that is so popular these days.

Man I just love YouTube!
