Movie Synopsis:

Tees Maar Khan is an upcoming action comedy film directed by Farah Khan, starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles and Akshaye Khanna in a cameo. Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor make special appearances in the film.

Tees Maar Khan motion picture is about a good criminal born who is fearless as well as shameless. He is the blue moon and is known as Tees Maar Khan.

He steals cons and cheats all with such alarming audacity that even shame shies away from him! He and his gang comprising of Dollar, Soda and Burger have managed to keep the police, world over, on their toes.

Then one fine day international antique smugglers, the Johri Brothers, assign Tees Maar Khan the biggest con job in life! He must rob antiques worth 500 crore rupees from a heavily guarded moving train.

Will Khan and his merry gang, with some unwitting support from his wannabe-actress girlfriend, Anya, and a greedy Bollywood superstar be able to pull off the greatest heist in history?

Music Review:

The music of Tees Maar Khan is composed by Shirish Kunder, Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani

The title track borrows from Mission Impossible’s theme and medleys it with Bhangra and what not Chinese falsetto, kitschy dialoguebaazi, crazy phonetics, guns and choppers and Akshay juxtaposing his character’s slipperiness with a tawaif’s izzat’. This one can really get away from it all for its sheer magnitude of gimmickry. Please watch on-screen, don’t listen to it.

Sheila Ki Jawani,’ already touted as the item song of the year, on its way to dislodge Munni Badnaam from the top slot. Will it, won’t it? Verdict: It cannot. Munni’s raunchiness is unequalled, Sheila Ki Jawani is way too cool, too sexy’ it’s the crme brulee to the smorgasbord that Munni was. The lyric in Sheila is quite out of sync with the song music often breaking in places to add another genre to the track mixing Hinglish, rap, hip-hop, qawalli Sunidhi belting it out like a rock star where’s the sultry oomph in this rocker? But with Katrina, the song will go places, Sheila Ki Jawani, hai allah!

Wallah Re Wallah’ is a techno-qawalli with stress on aadaab arz hai’ a catch phrase that’ll catch on once the song is on air. What is missing from the track is a more robust voice to throw the track into another stratosphere of junoon-e-jazbaa.’ The pattern, the rhythm, the singing does not make a leap beyond its musical trappings.

Sukhwinder Singh’s Badey Dilwala’ has an interesting retro interlude by Shreya Ghoshal which reminded me of Asha Bhonsle’s saucy Aao Na Galey Lagao Na’ from Mere Jeevan Saathi. Although here, the interlude is cranked up for today’s hyper-active junta.

The opening guitar riffs of Happy Ending, is again, pilfered. The choir steps in with bagpipes. Abhijeet Sawant, Prajakta Shukre, Harshit Saxena were perhaps looking for this Happy Ending after their Indian Idol days. I hope it’s played out in the rolling credits.

We’ll see in a month, just in time for a Xmas release, who will upstage whom, Tees Maar Khan Vs Sheila Ki Jawani. Right now the ball seems to be rolling in Sheila’s court.


Live Bands

When you think of Hollywood, or of English weddings, you will probably think of music, and in particular, live music. The main purpose of the opening reception is to welcome guests and what could be better than to have a little soft, light music playing in the background of the all the conversation?

Music plays an important role in any wedding. In Indian weddings you may have seen live music played in the wedding venue by “Sittar” Gittar, or Shahnaee, Tabla, and Piano. This is normally at the entrance of the venue, and by the welcoming drinks area or the waiting loung. Or perhaps it is in the garden of paradise. If you remove the music from these places, think how boring the atmosphere would be. When you add music you turn the place into something royal, and maharajah style with a period theme.

Bollywood and Hollywood are no different from each other. They both serve entertainment. They both have one aim and one objective in common and that is fun entertainment.

Can you think of a wedding venue with both an English and an Asian theme? Asian Maharaja waiters with the paghdi (head wear) and traditionally dressed Indian girls welcoming you wearing saris and flowers in their hands. As well as this, How about famous Ms Anna Nell wearing traditional dress and makeup and playing music on the patio in the lounge, or on the lawn, or in the front garden. The cost of this would not be sky high. It may cost a little, but it would be worth it for the added atmosphere and magic it will bring to the occasion.

If you think that this is a wonderful idea, then you are not the only one. We think your guests, the grooms family, and the bride would be very happy. First impressions mean a great deal. If you have something special at the entrance, then your guests will have the feeling that they are going to keep experiencing something special throughout the whole day.

When you think of a wedding, think of entertainment and live music. It can add so much to your day.

The differences between acoustic and electric guitars are myriad. In addition to one requiring electricity to be heard and the other one not requiring anything but a skilled set of hands, the way in which each one is made and the uses of each one stand in stark contrast to one another.

An acoustic guitar is a hollow-bodied, six-stringed instrument. The sound produced by an acoustic guitar comes from the vibrations created by a note or notes being plucked or strummed on the strings and echoing throughout the hollow inside of the instrument’s body. Steel-stringed acoustic guitars are made of wood, and the tops of acoustic guitars are usually made from spruce, although some are made from rosewood or maple. Other acoustic guitars are nylon-stringed, or classical, guitars. These are usually smaller, and the strings are tied to the bridge in a knot rather than held in with a peg like on steel-stringed acoustic bridges. Classical guitars are used in a variety of musical applications from jazz, traditional latin folk music, to, of course, classical guitar compositions. Classical guitars are most often played with the fingers, but a plectrum may be used to play either steel-stringed or classical acoustic guitars. Blues, rock, and most Western folk music is played on steel-stringed acoustic guitars. While acoustics are traditionally played without the need for electric amplification, acoustic-electric models–acoustic guitars equipped with electric pickups–are quite popular for acoustic artists whose professional needs call for amplification.

Electric guitars, on the other hand, can be hollow-bodied or solid. In the twenty-first century, hollow-bodied electric guitars are less commonly-used than solid-body variations, but a number of rock, blues, and jazz musicians still prefer the tones they produce. Hollow-bodied electric guitars usually have f-holes (like a violin or cello) as opposed to the single, large, circular hole in an acoustic guitar body. The first solid-body electric guitar, the famous Les Paul model, was introduced in the 1950s, and since then the solid-body electric guitar has become a staple for guitarists involved in all genres of popular music. Solid-body electrics feature either a bolt-on neck (like the Fender Stratocaster) or a set-in neck (the Les Paul, for example), and can make use of either single-coil pickups for use with clean channel amplification or humbucker pickups for use with distortion. Electric guitars, unlike acoustics, are rarely manufactured with natural finishes. The bodies can be made from a number of different woods, but the most common are alder, ash, or mahogany. The mahogany bodies of most Gibson guitars are credited for the warm tones their guitars produce. There are, however, a limited number of electric guitars that make use of synthetic materials since all the guitar requires to be heard is amplification as opposed to a hollow cage of wood. Even so, the most popular electric guitars are made from wood and are believed to provide superior tonality than those made from anything else.

If you really need to learn how to play guitar you can find a way. With all of the guitar playing information out there it is much easier to learn to play today than it was years ago. Although private lessons are a good method of learning to play guitar it is not the only learning method out there. Even an absolute beginner guitar player can learn how to play with all of the options available to you today.

If you put forth the effort you can teach yourself all of those cool tunes you would love to know how to play. One good way to learn how to pick is to find an online lesson source. There are many websites online that can teach you both absolute beginner guitar and advanced lessons. Several of these sites are free while others charge a fee. There are tons of good players out there that have never had a formal lesson in their life.

If you are new at playing the guitar you should probably start with some simple method that is designed for the beginning guitarist. Learning how to read guitar tablature and teaching yourself a few simple chords along with some strum patterns would be a good start. With this humble beginning you should be on your way to learning how to play the guitar. Before you know it you will be playing your own style of music.

One way some people learn to play is by ear. This involves listing to the song you need to learn and trying to copy the sound you hear. It may be a little while before you can use this method but it is the best way to find your own voice and play the guitar in a way that only you can do.

Playing music with other people will take your playing to new levels. There is something about playing with your buddies that makes you a better player. Most of those bad habits you tend to develop will go away if you spend enough time playing with other people.

At some point you will realize that you must put in the time if you need to be a good guitar player. You can buy the next good method as many times as you like but it may not make you a better player. You must practice if you need to be a good guitar player. As you teach yourself it is important to stay motivated. As you get to be a better player you will move into advanced topics that you may not be able to master in a day. You need to spend the time it takes to do things right without losing interest. Sometimes this is a tough thing to do.

If you take the time to do things right you will have a hobby that you can enjoy for the rest of your life. Anything worth doing is worth taking the time to get it right. With enough time and effort you will soon be playing guitar like a pro even if you are an absolute beginner guitar player today.

An acoustic guitar chord is several notes all played at once. There are a lot of different acoustic guitar chords, but if you can learn a few basic ones, you can then play hundreds, if not thousands, of songs. There are any of the major chords, which have a brighter sound whilst the minor chords have a darker or sadder sound.

Acoustic guitar chords are expressed in print as chord diagrams. Chord diagrams for acoustic guitars look like guitar tabs for electric guitars but while guitar tabs are printed side-to-side (horizontally), acoustic guitar chord diagrams are vertical (top to bottom). The chord diagram appears as a series of crossed lines with vertical lines to mark each string, horizontal lines to mark each fret and dots to mark the place where the string should be held down.

The acoustic guitar chord diagram will display six lines with numbers on those lines. The lines represent the stings from top to bottom of the guitar neck, and the numbers represent which finger is to be used on the string to produce a chord. 1 indicates that the index finger should be used, 2 for the middle finger, 3 for the ring finger, 4 for the pinky finger, and T for rare instances that the thumb is used. O represents an open string that is played, and strings marked with an X are not played.

G-major is the first chord we’re going to learn on the acoustic guitar. Place your fingers as follows: middle finger on sixth string at third fret, index finger on fifth string at second fret, ring finger on first string at third fret. Play each note one at a time, including the open strings. Each note should be heard clearly, with no odd buzzing or rattling sounds.

If anything sounds off, you can push down firmer on the string or move your fingers so they are closer to the fret. Your fingers should not be in contact with one another and only on one string at a time. When each individual note sounds good, strum them all together. You have just accomplished a G-major chord on your acoustic guitar.

The acoustic guitar chord E-minor is much easier to learn how to finger. Your index finger goes on the second fret of the fifth string, while your middle finger rests on the second fret of the fourth string when playing this chord. There should be enough room for both fingers to rest on the fret without having them touch. After trying the notes, adjust your fingers until the sound you hear is the right note. Then, strum both strings to play the E-minor chord. You will recognize a darker sound from this minor chord.

Since this is a minor chord, the sound will be darker. If you are a beginner, good basic acoustic guitar chords to learn are A-major, A-minor, C-major and D-major. You should try to move back and forth between the acoustic guitar chords as quickly as you can. Practicing quick finger placement is critical.

You need to start off slow when your firest learning acoustic guitar chords and eventually, your fingers will get in place by themselves. With daily practice, your fingers will be moving quickly across these acoustic guitar chords.

Guitar pedals are on the market for electric guitar so that you can completely change the quality of your performance without much work on your part. It’s possible that you might not be the type of person that enjoys pedals, but some of them are essential for playing a near-flawless show.

More and more guitar pedals are being created every day and it can be confusing to know what they all do to the sound of your electric guitar. Here is a short list of pedals for your electric guitar that can add more practicality, awesome style, or killer tone.

1. Go back to the 60s and 70s with a wah pedal. There’s a few signature electric guitar sounds that came out of the 60s and one of them was the unforgettable wah pedal. Connect your guitar to a wah pedal and you can transform your tones into psychedelic waves that can really get your crowd in the mood to protest.

2. Get rid of amplifier hum with a noise gate. Sometimes your guitar amplifier might have a very powerful distortion channel that hums and hisses in the background when your strings are not vibrating. To get rid of that hum, connect to a noise gate pedal and when you’re not playing your electric guitar, you’ll hear silence.

3. Check your string pitches live with a tuner pedal. Whether you like it or not, the pitches on your electric guitar are going to go out of tune at the worst times and you need to be prepared. Get a tuner pedal to hook up to your guitar live on stage and you will not have to worry about crazy strings again.

4. Compression pedals will level the muscle you put into strumming. If you’re the type of guitarist that varies their strumming during a show, but wants almost all of the material to stay level, you might get a lot of use out of a compression pedal. Compressors not only give balance to the level of effort you use to strum, but can add some attack to your electric guitar’s notes as well.

5. Boost your distortion with an overdrive pedal. Sometimes an electric guitarist just needs some more distortion and buying an overdrive pedal is the way to solve that problem. The next time you feel you need more pump on a solo or raging verse, just stomp on your overdrive and blow the roof off the auditorium.

6. Mess around on stage with a loop pedal. If you’re a guitarist that likes to repeat sections often and then add new riffs over-top, then a loop pedal will be perfect for you. Imagine playing your electric guitar once and then having that section to play along with while it repeats over and over again. It’s your own personal back-up guitarist!

Guitar pedals are easy to abuse since they can distort sounds, alter pitches, and block noise, but using them in their context is the most important part. Think about this list of guitar pedals for your electric guitar the next time that you go to the music store.
