A Fun Exercise

1. Create a nice little chord progression on a guitar, or a keyboard, and record it.
2. Take a guitar, and tune all strings one whole step down.
3. Jam along with the progression: you will need to mentally transpose chord forms and scales.
4. Get another guitar, if you are lucky enough to have one,(I use my acoustic.)  Close your eyes, and tune the strings to an open chord, use your imagination.
5. Jam along with the previous progression.  It will make you try new fingerings and chord shapes.
6. I know...DOH....you guys already do that.
7. Try it again.

    I tried something similar for a recent project.
    I had the drum/bass/ std guitar chords down, and then tried my OpenG guitar on top of those recordings.  It came out with some interesting ideas that really added to the songs, just getting out of my comfort zone.

    Adenoid surgery or adenoid removal is one of the most common ENT surgeries. But you must resort to extreme step of surgery only when your ENT specialist is hopeless of treating the complication through medications and other alternative ways. This adenoid removal task is often performed with operation of tonsillitis. Adenoid removal or Adenoidectomy involves removal of pair of adenoid glands that exists in nasopharynx (nasal part of the pharynx). But before undergoing an adenoidectomy, patient as well as doctor must be sure about it. Most often these glands get swelled and become greater in size causing an obstruction in nasopharynx path. It may result in discomfort in breathing through the nose and breathing dysfunction during nap. Also in case of chronic otitis media this surgery is recommended.
