playing an instrument

anonymous asked:

Omg Lauren's starting to do that thing Camz does, pretending to play instruments, doing air guitar... And the head-banging when Camz was head-banging beside Ashlee 👀

they’re mirroring 🌚

what kind of music would simon and baz listen to??? i know baz plays violin and whatnot but like, what songs would he know on the violin??? what instrument would simon play if he ever played an instrument??? these are important questions and i need answers ??????

This took so long to make……

Finally I have finished the biggest project that I have ever worked on, and I meant it this picture is huge. (but anyway…)

I give to you all the bracelets girl dressed as their ace monsters, this drawing was based on a post saying something about the girls decks having a musical pattern or something like that. ( I cant find the original post so I might have explain this wrong)

Yuzu: Melodious- orchestrates or creates the music

Rin: Wind Witch- Plays the instruments or creates the background sounds

Ruri: Lyrical Luciana- Sings to the Music

Selena: Moonlight- Dances to the Music

So basically the girls are performing what their specific decks are supposed to represent or something like that.

I think this is my favorite drawing since the 1920′s headband drawing I did.

(I obviously love how I draw ruri but yuzu comes as a close second)

I hope you all like it

❤️

thIS IS SO CUTE I love it thank you for this

Thank you for reading it!

But here’s the deal, you see, Shiro’s a pretty big, strong, buff guy. Before the Galra, if he looked the way he did, he’d be the dude who wore a Sun’s Out Gun’s Out shirt (probably with Wonder Woman on it, but I digress). His favorite youtube video is the one where Terry Crews plays multiple instruments only using his… muscles. You know the one.

But more important than that, Keith is tiny.

Okay, that’s a lie, Keith isn’t tiny. He’s a mean, mean, knifing machine, (mean twice, because really), but Keith gets incredibly annoyed when other people point out he’s “tiny.”

The first time Shiro does it is after a mission that went well, technically, but still left a bad taste in all their mouths (literally, plant goo was involved; it was unfortunate). Without warning, he yanked Keith over his shoulder like a sack of angry potatoes, and Keith shrieked so loud the entire corridor turned to stare.

The look on his face was of pure and unmitigated betrayal, you know the one where you pretend to throw the ball and the dog realizes you didn’t throw the ball? And, well, Shiro didn’t think it was possible to love him even more, but Shiro was wrong.

Musical interest? What genre does he like listening to the most, can he play an instrument, can he sing or is he as tone deaf as my next door neighbour?

I wish you could have heard the sounds I made when I read this b/c I got so damn excited about this ask

In his early teens Shiro got super into the 80′s punk rock bands.  In his era, 20 minutes into the future or whatever, it’s like, classic vintage rock.  He super dug the long guitar solos in the middle of songs even when they were totally inappropriate and random.

His mom made him play violin until he was in 8th grade but when he got to high school he was told he could pick up a new instrument if he wanted - he just had to keep playing something. and he was like ELECTRIC GUITAR!! And his parents are super cool, IMO, so they let him learn to play guitar and got him private lessons.  He switched to bass guitar in tenth grade because he eventually decided the baseline was more fun to riff on.

Shiro kind of lost interest in playing guitar as he began to seriously consider applying to the Galaxy Garrison and realized he had a real shot at becoming an astronaut, but he kept up lessons until mid-senior year so he’s pretty good! he’s excellent at music theory and can read both treble and bass clef with ease.

Shiro has a beautiful singing voice but hates singing in front of an audience. he only does it in the shower or to accompany something he’s playing on the guitar when he’s showing off for someone he likes. His one weakness is that he can’t ever get the key right if he’s singing without accompaniment.

His favorite song in the world is Carry On My Wayward Son.

I know this isn't like me but Can I have a match up? if you're not doing it its okay :D so I'm shy (in general) always gets nervous, I like sweets and I play instruments like guitars, and I can sing,well, not too good

Kou-kun is here !

Kou would always compliment on how cute and sweet you are, especially when being shy and timid. One of the most entertaining things for him would be to bite you, kiss you and see how your expression evolves from nervous to turned on. Moreover, Kou would also insist on performing with you. At home or at school, he’d love to sing and create various melodies with his loved one !

Playing music requires fine motor skills, which are controlled in both hemispheres of the brain. It also combines the linguistic and mathematical precision (which the left hemisphere is more involved in) with the novel and creative content (that the right hemisphere excels in). For these reasons, playing music has been found to increase the volume and activity in the brain’s corpus callosum - the bridge between the two hemispheres - allowing messages to get across the brain faster and through more diverse routes.

we were like gods at the dawning of the world

i want to be in a band so bad it’s actually killing me. like just the thought of being in a van with my best friends, traveling across the country and making music that has the potential to inspire people to do the same thing could actually send me to the grave

When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain are lighting up at once as they process sound, take it apart to understand elements like melody and rhythm, and then put it all back together into unified musical experience. And our brains do all this work in the split second between when we first hear the music and when our foot starts to tap along.
