I’ve been getting more into music composition lately, and trying out various tools and programs to do it digitally. One of the easiest and best things I’ve found so far is this app called Maestro http://bit.ly/2X2RdQM. I’m running this on a Fire HD tablet (with google play installed) learn how to put google play on your Fire Tablet http://bit.ly/2DCi3WU. You can also pick up a Fire Tablet here https://amzn.to/2E8PDp5 and a stylus here https://amzn.to/2X2Xn3i

Maestro is great for learning and has a ton of pro features like:

  • Articulations and Note Relationships

  • Host your music at the Concert Hall and see if others like it
  • The Concert Hall is where you can post your music or listen and see other maestro’s work

As you can see it’s pretty amazing. I’m using it on my Amazon fire tablet and it works really well.

The Epiphone Les Paul SL Is One Cool Retro Axe That Costs Next To Nothing

I have been seeing these at guitar center recently, and I have got to say that I really love this student model guitar! Epiphone makes some amazingly cool products for barely any money with some pretty impressive build quality.

What I really love about this thing is the extremely retro look, kinda like the old Melody Makers of the 1950s. To top it off they come in several amazing looking finishes.

They feature a poplar body with a mahogany neck, two single coil pickups, and 1000 points of cool!

They’re only $119 brand new, or $179 with a gig bag, mini amp, cable, and accessories, making it a perfect guitar for learning, or even for those that just want a cool looking Epiphone to add to their guitar collection!
