Music In A Cajon

I remember I used to drum my hands on the table while listening to my teachers in primary school. Some years later, I saw on television, a guy drumming on what appeared to me then as an ordinary wooden box while sitting on it. I thought, it was just part of the band’s act. After all, it’s kind of “cool” to look at.
Now, I know that this cool thing is called Cajone. It is actually cajon in Spanish (pronounced as ka-hon), which means a crate or a drawer. I was right, it’s wooden! Cajones, a six-sided, box-shaped percussion are played by tapping the faces with hands or fingers. Let’s acquaint ourselves with cajones.

Green Diaper

Modern times have definitely lessened the inconveniences of yesterday. Housekeeping, for instance, used to be an herculean task. However nowadays, technological advancements have made it easier.  Parents can now multi-task; doing the laundry, cooking, baking, and cleaning the house all simultaneously. Having a baby is another serious matter, but parents have modern conveniences to thank for – safety baby car seats and carriers, baby trolleys,   baby gears, disposable diapers, and much more must-haves to ease the responsibility and difficulty inherent to having a baby.

We have all these beautiful, very well appreciated conveniences on one hand, but unfortunately, as a consequence we have got on the other end of the spectrum important and pressing issues to deal with.

We have to face fairly and squarely the effects, by-products, and aftermaths of all the present comforts if we are to continue life in comfort.  Let’s take diapering for instance. It is very alarming to know that millions of tons of disposable diapers are discarded in landfills every year. If this rate continues year after year, will the convenience we have now worth the discomfort our kids might experience in the future?

Perhaps taking this into consideration as we decide on what diaper to use, would make a great difference.

Play It Better

12 string guitar

I have always been using a six string guitar since my high school days.  I have seen people bringing their twelve string guitars and I have heard hit songs with twelve string guitars playing on it. But it was not until I played it personally that I truly appreciated the beauty of it.

The twelve string guitar just sounds better, fuller and brighter than a six string guitar. There are dull moments for a six string guitar but the twelve string guitar seems to make it fun, creative, lively even.  The combination of the 2 strings playing the same note with low and high octaves seems to create that brighter sound with the bottom strings creating that chorus effect like sound makes the 12 string guitar a better musical instrument than that of the six string guitar.

What have you got? 6 or 12 string guitar….

Which is your favorite?
