Online Guitar Lessons: Chordbook

I know, m-a-n-y websites cater to guitar enthusiasts. However, I love Chordbook's intuitiveness. If you surf on to the site, you'll get what I mean. It makes learning how to play the guitar really simple. Also, this site helps you out with those out-of-the-ordinary guitar chords. While you are busy tuning and strumming a real guitar in front of your PC, take advantage of the site's playback feature of your saved chords. Chordbook can play your composed rhythms in loops, and makes learning a new song a cinch.

Now, who needs a guitar teacher? For today, I give Chordbook *****.

Online Guitar Lessons: Guitar Tutee

Back in college, learning to play the guitar was the greatest escape from growing-up issues and academic stress. With much enthusiasm, it paved the way to a rock band and the validity that music is, indeed, food for the soul! Anyhoo, Guitar Tutee gives me an updated version of your songbook publication. Never mind that song hits and song compilations with chords. This site truly saves on paper and the worry of ever losing those favorite songs.

What makes it interesting is you can learn the chords and the rate of strumming through the embedded videos of a headless expert guitarist. Wow, pinoys are really innovative. :)

For today, Guitar Tutee rocks with *****!

Virtual Office: Zoho

Mobile productivity is the name of the game. With Zoho, you can do so much more. Bet, this will be Google's best competitor. In terms of innovativeness and services, Zoho can almost match Google's competitive streak. Office tools such as word processors, spreadsheets and presentation tools are just a few of its key features. The best features are its business apps though. And, this site does appeal to mobile workers.

No need for crummy licenses and time- and memory-consuming installers. Zoho gives you that online advantage.

Since Zoho grabbed my attention the whole afternoon, I give it *****.

Online Games: Orange Shark

Online games can be a fun escape from the usual work eye strain. Lately, I got invited to Orange Shark's social game networking site. It establishes a unique way of playing with buddies. You earn points and gain buddies. The games are simple and addictive and players can interact at the same time.

What I like about this site is its cute factor and's highly functional and conducive to gaming.

For today, I give this cute and promising gaming site ***** for sharpening my online gaming skills.

Online Music Maker: Splice

"Finally!" This was my ecstatic shout when I accessed Splice Music. One day many months ago, I stumbled upon a site that allows online music mixing and editing. You don't need downloads and sophisticated skills to make music. However, I somewhat forgot about the URL and the memory of this wondrous site got under covers.

Through some innate need to be creative, I uncovered this site through my delicious account. Then last week, I was able to do hands on some music making. It was really (reaalllllly) fantastic, and amazing!! Making music is as easy as 1-2-3.

O-kay, so I sound as a frustrated singer/songwriter. But mind you, I can make things happen with the online tools of Splice Music. It beats a boring day of nothingness. Grab a mic, do some loops and make some mixes. If you're a music lover, I AM sure you'll thank me for hinting you on this site.

For today, Splice Music hits the top charts with *****.
