Playing musical instruments in the modern society has come a long way from where it was before. It does not only transform how to produce music but it also modifies the performer’s competence on the stage. What I’m trying to say is that, nowadays, it is already so common to see singers performing without a mic stand. That is so true to singers who at the same time playing with guitars while performing on stage.
Technology, of the most part, has really made things easier when used appropriately and wisely yet it just seems that everything has its own drawback if and when abused. And it is quite fascinating indeed to use and apply it in your daily lifestyle. In fact, it has changed a lot of life already since its inception, may it be bad or good, right or wrong. Just like hubby’s friend who are saving to buy a guitar with the use of his online earnings. Although he is still far from the target goal but at least he is moving towards his dream even if it is slow in pace.

My desire to be able to play a guitar one day is a well known fact that I’ve been putting it into words here in my previous posts. The only thing that’s holding me is the responsibility in the house and our very active son. More to it that hubby has no inclination anymore in spite of his yearning to learn as well. This eventually has put me back in knowing more about the guitar itself and its features. Add to it the technological advancements that have been going around in the past decade.
I wouldn’t have known the different cool bass bridges out there and that it was called so. And technology indeed, made everything sophisticated yet many are still so simple to use despite the advancements. And the recent models of bass bridges already features variable string spacing adjustment that said to have a better versatility and fine intonation.
It is unusual or kinda weird if you’re going to see kids as young as 2 years old without tech toys that even adults don’t know how to use although they are only up to the games that were installed in either tablets or smart phones. Kids are already exposed to sophisticated gadgets at a very young age and that includes our son as well. Not that we want him to learn about it and go with the flow but it was because he is very hyperactive that it is hard to keep him still especially when we are at friends house or in the airport.
And this just reminds me at one point when our son swipe the screen of the laptop of his father. I’m not sure what’s in his mind but I believe he thought that all gadgets are touch screen. As of the moment we are still able to control his use of tech gadgets and we don’t want him to be totally dependent of it for it’s not good for the eyes. We don’t want him to be wearing prescription glasses at a very young age. It also reminds me of hubby getting his own eyeglasses as well a few days back and I can’t wait to see him wearing it most of the time from now.
