Perfume – my next musical revolution

Well, as some of you might have known, I’m a great fan of Girls’ Generation and they brought me into all the Kpop madness. I had always been thinking, man I wanna get into Jpop too! I didn’t know where to start because there wasn’t anything...

Finding our voices

‘Be yourself.’ ‘Go with your emotions.’ We are all looking for our own voices be it in music or whatever. We want to be heard the way we are. We want to express ourselves without being a copy of someone else. I am still on my way to...

Deciding on what to practice

Practice oh practice. There are just way too many things to practice ain’t it so? It does get frustrating sometimes but, as much as it’s frustrating, no practice = no improvement for sure. I was sometimes asked what did I practice to play like how I do...

Problem with scales
