Make Better Music with Harmony Central | View Online | V17.5
 


Welcome to Make Better Music, and to an edition that has something for everyone. But first, thanks for your support, staying subscribed, and turning on your fellow musicians to the Make Better Music newsletter. Don’t stop! It’s what allows us to grow and progress.

In this issue, Craig walks you through adding an equalizer to Windows 10 so you can replace what Microsoft removed, and Phil explains how to use bus-powered hardware MIDI controllers with iPad apps (yes, it is possible) as well as weighs in on flatwound versus roundwound strings. Guest author Just Rijna reveals ways to play guitar by ear, and Chris delves into the history of the Great American Songbook.

On the expert review front, Dendy gets his life changed by Mark Schulman's Conquering Life's Stage Fright book, while Chris checks out Gibson's 2017 EB Bass. And Phil gets risqué as he pulls back the satin sheets on Embertone's Sensual Saxophone app. You can tell he had fun writing this review…
