Nail Care For Stringed Instrument Players

Most stringed instrument players prefer to use a plectrum, or pick, to provide the percussive force that causes the strings to resonate. A number of performers, however, prefer to use their naked hand. There are distinct advantages to using one’s hand. The same articulation and precision that can be achieved with a pick is possible, though it requires a great deal of practice. Those softer parts of the hand, the outside of the pinky and the pads of the fingers and thumb, can produce gentle, muffled tones. Of course, the entire hand can be used for the loudest passages, providing more volume than a pick can usually pluck out of the instrument.

For a ukulele or any plucked, stringed instrument player, the nails are one of the most important parts of the hand. In most cases, performers who use a finger-picking style will grow out the nails on their right hands to their preferred length. It’s important to note the term “preferred length”. There are any number of sources that will try to say what’s too long or too short where nail length is concerned. This is entirely up to the performer. Nail length affects how an instrument is played and its sound quality, so there is no choice to be made here that is not aesthetic and individual in nature.

One’s nails will increase in strength as they’re used. They may split and break at first, but keep them filed and trimmed and they’ll rapidly increase in the amount of work they can perform. Remember to keep the entire nail smooth. People tend to have ridges and depressions on the back of their nails. These can be filed down to make the smoothest possible surface. Nails should be trimmed and filed to eliminate bends and hooks.

To avoid splitting and breaking, it is ideal to use methods to help strengthen the nail itself. For instance, vitamin E oil can be applied to the nail. Daily vitamin use is also ideal for good nail growth as well as strengthening them. Vitamin rich lotion is also an ideal way to keep your nails strong and looking healthy.

If for whatever reason you have problems with nail growth and keeping them strong, you have other options to consider including acrylic nails and Lee Press On Nails (Yes, they are still available if you dont have any leftover from the 80s!). Both can be applied to the nails to provide you your ideal ukulele playing nail length as well as provide you with the strength you need to play effectively.

Genuine Astral Travel Information And Guidance

Dejavu, waking premonitions, a feeling you have been here before can all be attributed to Astral Travel. How can that be? Practitioners tell us that these feelings are not clairvoyant at all, we actually have been there before. We have seen or experienced this place and time, but simply in the Astral Plane and Astral Realms.

Astral Travel or Astral Projection can be induced consciously and purposely but most of us, it’s believed, do it in our sleep without even knowing it. What happens is essentially that your spiritual self, all that makes up your being without the physicality of your body, essentially projects into another realm or dimension to travel to any place, time or dimension that you choose.

Your Astral Self is known as many different things. The Astral body, Astral vehicle or super-sensible body, but whatever you wish to call it, it’s the part of us that is able to navigate the astral realms and explore new experiences while our physical body rests and remains on earth.

Some practitioners believe that we actually separate from ourselves while others believe that your astral self is more like a remote lenses or vehicle that merely communicates back to our mind. Regardless of which theory one subscribes to, and it doesn’t really matter,

Practitioners tell us that the Astral Self can do many things that our human body’s cannot.

For example, through astral projection, one is able to explore the galaxy, the planets, the stars and the sky. The Astral body can easily travel great distances in a blink of eye and visit far off places as easily as visiting next door.

Astral Travelers Inform us that some people fly all over the planet. Others simply leave their bodies and float over them observing from a different vantage point, still others travel to past and future realities observing events from another time.

Experts that practice regularly say that Astral travel is completely safe and holds no possibility of harm. One’s astral self can pass through walls and barriers, the very earth itself and travel virtually anywhere one can think of. Conversely and logically with this ability comes the absolute inability to affect any change from ones astral body. Essentially we can watch and observe but can’t change anything.

This makes sense if you think of this as an opportunity to learn about ones self and the world and people around us. Astral travel exists to allow us to grow and learn. It’s gives us an opportunity to have experiences that we may not otherwise be able to share in.

Astral Travel Information is everywhere and Astral Travel can by practiced by anyone.

Real Madrid’s effort to obtain the signature seems to be Gareth Bale happy ending. According to the report, as quoted by Football Espana, Tuesday (07/23/2013), the Tottenham Hotspur players agreed to a six-year contract duration.

Indeed, since the end of last season Madrid have shown interest in Bale. Wales winger services after the Spanish capital club this fantastic ready poured funds reached 90 million euros ($ 1.213 trillion).

Besides Madrid, Bale also the target of a number of Europe’s elite clubs, like Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain. However, according to Marca, Real Madrid odds get bigger combative midfielder was considering a bid because Spurs transfer cash between 80 million euros ($ 1.079 billion) and a 85 million euro (Rp 1.146 trillion) plus full-back Fabio Coentrao.

Media is headquartered in Madrid was also added that Madrid president Florentino Perez and general director Jose Angel Sanchez has sat down with representatives of Bale, Jonathan Barnett.

Study Later School Start Time Lowers Teen Crash Rate

The logic of it makes perfect sense: teens don’t function at high levels early in the morning. So the results of a study from the Eastern Virginia Medical school aren’t too shocking: when high schools start too early, teens are more likely to crash their cars on the way there.

The study compared teen accident rates between Virginia Beach and Chesapeake counties, two adjacent Virginia counties with differing school start times.

Robert Vorona, a sleep doctor at the school, compiled data on drivers between 16 and 18 in the two counties. In Virginia Beach, the high schools start at 7:20 a.m., and in Chesapeake, 8:40 a.m.

While the time difference was seemingly minimal, the crash data was drastically different.

Among students who started school very early in Virginia Beach, there were 65.4 car crashes for every 1,000 teen drivers. In Chesapeake County, there were just 46.2 crashes per 1,000 teen drivers.

That is a 40% crash rate increase for schools starting a little over an hour earlier.

While this particular study didn’t account for the time of day of the crashes, this is not the first time school start times have been linked to the crash rate.

A 2008 study in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine showed a 16% decrease in accidents when a Kentucky school pushed start times back.

Falling asleep at the wheel is obviously dangerous, but for a new driver, merely being tired can have just as poor an effect on their driving.

To anyone who has ever lived with a teenager, this need for sleep isnt news. The average teen needs 9.25 hours of sleep and typically cant fall asleep until 11, so its no wonder that later start times help.

Several lobbyist groups are already pressuring schools to adopt earlier start times. If you don’t have time to get involved, there are a few things you can do to ensure that your teens are getting enough sleep.

Try turning off cell phones, computers, etc an hour or two before your teen needs to go to sleep so they can start winding down.

Avoid too many caffeinated beveragesand avoid caffeine entirely after 4 p.m.

Consider going over your teens daily schedule with them. When alarms start to go off at 6 a.m., and extracurricular activities last until 6 or 7 p.m., it can be hard to find time to juggle homework and a social life. Learning time management strategies from a young age ensures they can make time for sleep well into their adult life as well.

If your teen still didnt get the necessary amount of sleep, dont let them bike or drive to school. They may hate you for it, but at least they wont be a hazard to themselves or others on the road.
