No strings attached!


So when was the last time you felt like buying an acoustic guitar and learn how to play? Was it when you heard Tears in Heaven for the first time? This is a global phenomenon and capitalising on this urge that music fans have everytime they hear a good acoustic number is Now Play It.

Launched last year, Now Play It aims to get people as close to the artists and songs they love as possible. To do that, it offers downloadable video tutorials on the art and craft of playing hundreds of different songs on guitar, bass, piano or drums, many of them led by the artists who wrote or perform them. Paul McCartney among the artists currently offering instruction on the site, and users can search for tutorials by artist, song, instrument, difficulty level or tutor.

Being taught by a well-known artist, even if by video, is certainly going to give a user a healthy helping of experiences to narrate. So when will your guitar gently weep?

Guitar Hero is this 'game' on the Nintendo Wii. And Wii! Wee! is it fun or what! Then there is Rock Band for Xbox which is also so much fun.

You should come over. We can go bowling, play golf, play tennis and battle it out to be the Guitar Heroes- all in one go.

Seems like I like my narcotics in unhealthy doses. That's why they are called addictions, eh? :D
