#Photoshop: Adjustment Layers in Photoshop - Complete Guide

The Adjustment Layers in Photoshop are a group of some useful, non-destructive image editing tools that add color and tonal adjustments to your image. Did you read the word “non-destructive”? Yeah, all of the changes will be done without harming the original image. Means that you can go back to any point of time without any loss. It’s like a Time Machine in macOS and Win7 backup in Windows.

#Photography: Tips for How to Enhance the Mood in Your Foggy Photos

I love photographs of foggy scenes. It can be a view of a busy street, a sprawling city skyline or a secluded mountain valley. Mist and fog are transformative and can give a well-known location a completely different feeling, filled with mystery and depth.

Rockguitar Phrasing From Rhythmic Or Melodic Motive

I call it the musical equivalent of a stomach virus: The notes just keep on running out with no end in sight. The same thing occurs when they advance and learn the extensions of the minor pentatonic and the modes. They know the notes and the connections very well, but it sounds like one big run-on sentence. Sometimes I'll see cover bands in which more experienced guitarists will do the same. In short, there is no phrasing.

#Blues Music And Slang - Explanation, History, Examples

Back when I was in junior high school in South Carolina, a transfer student from California joined our homeroom class. On his first day there, he announced -- for no apparent reason -- "Man, I'm jonesin' for something to eat!" Almost in unison, we turned to face him and shine the appraising light of our seventh-grade hive mind upon him. "Jonesin'? What the heck's he talking about?" So he explained it to us, we all acted like it was the craziest thing we'd ever heard, and promptly started using it as our own by lunchtime.
Example for Bluesrock, that sounds oh so European:

About #Popmusic And Rhythm - History, Examples, Technics

Pop music is a genre of popular music that originated in its modern form in the United States and United Kingdom during the mid-1950s. The terms "popular music" and "pop music" are often used interchangeably, although the former describes all music that is popular and includes many different styles. "Pop" and "rock" were roughly synonymous terms until the late 1960s, when they became increasingly differentiated from each other. Pop music, as a genre, is seen as existing and developing separately.

Outlook #DowJones and #Nasdaq

As long the Dow will stay under 27.900 the situation as more bearish than bullish. I see an upturn to 24.450 and then a fall to 24.200 or 24.100. The situation for bulls would only clear up above 27.900.

My favourite scenario at NASDAQ is a rise to 6.800 or 6.850 and then set back to 6.780 or 6.800.

There are differing kinds of street musicians. the easy categorization is: permanent musician (a one that is enjoying throughout whole year, creating a living out of enjoying on the streets) and occasional entertainer, who is enjoying from time to time (e.g.: throughout holidays).

Futures for the S&P 500 index, Dow Jones industrial average and Nasdaq 100 rose slightly Wednesday night after the major averages reversed lower following the Fed rate hike and outlook. Over the past week or so, Facebook (FB), Google-parent Alphabet (GOOGL), Oracle (ORCL), Tencent Holdings (TCEHY) and China Lodging Group (HTHT) sold off sharply after setting up in bases with proper buy points. These are great examples of why investors should wait for a proper breakout and resist the temptation to buy shares early.
