Folk It Up


There are dozens and dozens of folk instruments in the world. Some of them are still popular while others have fallen into the oblivion and are just seen in the museums. Instruments like ukulele and harmonica have gained more popularity during the past decades but finding someone who plays accordion is like looking for a needle in the straw. And there is a reason for that, an accordion, even though it is an amazing instrument, is one of the hardest devices to master. You have to practice years and years to achieve anything, while with an ukulele you can learn an easy tune in one day (well, it’ probably won’t be a masterpiece, but still). In either case, folk instruments

How to Buy Used Pianos


On this website, we have compiled a guide for buying used guitars, guide to used ukuleles and much more. Now comes a time to do a guide to buying used pianos and I postponed this guide for quite some time because often times pianos cost so much more, even in used sections than any other instruments so if you have bad luck or do not research well enough and end up with a bad piano the loses are going to be that much more than with any other product. You should DEFINITELY tread lightly and take twice as much time with used pianos as with new pianos. That is why I have compiled here a more or less comprehensive list

Used Electric Guitar

When someone is buying a new guitar, especially for the first time, the task might seem, and actually is, quite daunting.

Rare Instruments In Pop Culture

The world of music is vast and sometimes terrifying. You obsess over one instrument, learn how to play it, do more research and then find a new instrument you had no idea existed. You decide you want to “branch out” and learn to play that instrument. In the process of researching that instrument, you find another one and so on and so forth. You get the gist, there are too many instruments and too little time. When I first got into music I did not venture too far and settled on a more regular choice of an instrument – a guitar. Then I realized I was really into ukuleles, started researching how much I would have to save on my

DJ the Grillman

So you have finally decided to graduate from playing music from your spotify account for your friends to being an actual DJ? Good! Now is the time to actually get to know how to be an actual musician, spin records and write your own music. Exciting stuff, really. Except you don’t know where to start.

Drums Are the Reason for Everything

Drumstick Types

Let’s get real. What is the most hardcore instrument out there? If you guessed guitar, you need to rethink your priorities. The drumset is the correct answer to this. Why? Because it takes more than the occasional finger bleed to play the drums. The entire body needs to be in constant motion. Your feet, arms, hands and most importantly – head. You need to headbang, otherwise you are a bad drummer. It is just tradition. So if you started rethinking your priorities right now, this blog post may be for you. If you decided to keep your priorities the way they are, I would like you to look at the picture below  and despair, because you know – she is

The Basics of the Bass Guitar

Bass Guitar Meme Fish

When you feel the rhythm of a song driving you, making you dance faster or run faster, it is usually not the lead guitar that causes this. Neither it is the drum set, surprising as it may seem. The true culprit for your feet going a certain speed is the bass guitar. The tones, thick as honey, that cover your brain and make you move to the music without you ever realizing. The bass guitar is the reason why music has so much dimension. So when someone tells me they don’t understand the point of a bass guitar, I know for a fact they don’t really understand music. If you are one of these people then this short post is
