    available on the market today, you will find yourself looking at guitars with a wide variety of body shapes and weights. Most all of guitars are designed not only to look aesthetically pleasing, but function properly. So I will be going over different types of guitar body shapes and guitar body woods that are used. This way you can have a better understanding of why the guitars are designed a certain way.Guitar Body Shapes Body shapes are not just cosmetic, many of the shapes and features of guitars to search some functioning purpose. Cutaways If the body is cutaway where it joins the neck, this helps a musician access the upper frets of the neck. There are two types of cutaway: single, as in the Gibson Les Paul or the Fender Telecaster, and double, as in the Fender Stratocaster or the Gibson SG. Body Contour This refers to where the guitar body is sculpted to make it fit more comfortably with the human body. A good example is the Fender Stratocaster, which is contoured at the back (called the 'tummy contour ') and on the front (called the 'forearm contour '). Balance and Weight A good body shape will be balanced weightwise, so the guitar sits well when worn with a strap without tilting toward the headstock or the body. The larger or thicker bodies, especially those made of heavier woods, can be very heavy and tiring to play.

    I was in North Carolina for a week, so I decided to bring my acoustic guitar down for the trip, because I could not go without it for a whole week. Anyways, I had been just playing one night and out of nowhere my aunt said “Wow, Evan I am thoroughly impressed! I thought this guitar thing was just a phase, but damn you’re getting really good!” I just laughed and said “Thank you”. She replied “Well let me show you something”. She came back from her bedroom with a worn guitar case, she popped open…

    Carlo Joseph (or CJ). CJ was a young Italian boy from town, very popular kid actually. When I first met him I actually disliked him, thinking he was a little annoying brat.

I had to get CJ to play with Louie and I. At one point, I convinced him to play with us, and that’s how the first band was formed, “Bitter Minds”. CJ would come to…

    tell the story about Christ’s death and resurrection. Then in 2004 Mel Gibson made his version of the movie and as I like to say brought it in to the 21st century with updated graphics, violence, and blood. The combination of images, faith, and history this film truly was like no other Passion of Christ movie ever done. The Passion of the Christ is a serious and deep piece of cinematography, it not just show us how much pain one man went through for us but it celebrates for the unbeliever the…

It is in the public domain that the CEO downsized the partner’s shares, effectively knocking him out of the ‘controlling shareholders’ board, in an attempt to make the company more competitive.

    • 1044 Words
    • 5 Pages

    A vacation without a prior plan, a pilot without a map, or a family without a mission statement, leads to chaos rather than a destination. A sense of direction and a common purpose to work toward is what a vacation, pilot, and family need to function fully and vibrantly. A vacation without some sort of planning will result in wasting the vacation time because of undecided decisions that need to be made upon arrival. A pilot without a map becomes aimless flying; a family with no mission statement…

This seemed very genuine, he takes a break from his “mad” rant, in which he constantly repeats “get thee to a nunnery.” He pauses and takes the time to show his love for Ophelia. This pause reveals to Ophelia there is sanity behind his madness, and that he is putting on a show. Because of the sudden break, the audience may be confused on…
