Mingalaba, my new ebook!

Those who follow me on my social networks probably have already noticed the release of my ebook, but only now I found the time to update my blog properly.

Creating a book of Myanmar was something that was on my mind, to share the best way I could what I felt while being at Myanmar. A small portrait of the country, seen through my eyes. I opted to focus on three aspects that followed my through the trip and that I followed recurrently while I was there, and on a fourth that’s focused on one location: the everyday routines and little habits, the many faces of Buddhism, my interpretation of Bagan and, finally, the smiles and sympathy of the Burmese people.

My goal while creating this ebook was simple but ambitious, transmit my experience of being at Myanmar: the warm welcome of its people, the mundane little things and some cliches found along the way but seen with my own eyes. Hopefully I was able to do that and create in you the same good feeling I had while being there. Please enjoy it!

  1. I have the Music Notation Primer located by shurtcot on my desktop as a ready reference and learning guide. Although I am new to classical guitar, I do compose on the piano and keyboard, and I used to write songs for the guitar with singing. When I took up classical guitar after a long absence from playing guitar at all, I did so in order to become knowledgeable about music theory and to sight read for the guitar. In keyboard music I rely on improvisation for compositions, a mode I profoundly worship. However, my desire is to become more fully versed in classical guitar both in theory and in sight reading. I took up classical guitar in truth in order to learn how to play J.S. Bach. Bach is my goal because he is to me the penultimate composer of Western style music. I also began to write a piece for classical guitar, a composition which intrigues me; for this composing work besides the studies I need, to have a reference handy like the Music Notation Primer will give me great encouragement and facility. This is a great gift. So far I have learned one piece well and I am now seeing the perfection of Allegretto by De Visee coming along at last; just today, I have returned to the piece I am composing. The Music Notation Primer will guide me well. Thanks to a fine contributor to the music culture of the Internet, Mr Maurice. We all appreciate your work and renditions here. They make learning possible.Sincerely,Marilynn Stark
