  • In the hands of a master

    Over the years, I've heard and read so many discussions here, and elsewhere about which tool, which platform, which software is better than another. Long, often mind-numbingly long threads on the PC vs. Mac.

    Sure, some of us remember the pre-digital days when this kind of discussion was relatively a much smaller issue (which stat camera, which tech pen, etc.) and yet--- masterful works were still being produced.

    Which brings me back to the purpose of this post. I'd like to start a collection here of great examples which prove that 'in the hands of a master' the choice of media, brand, or instrument is largely irrelevant.

    Let's start with what inspired this thought in me this morning, while driving in and listening to NPR's Morning Edition. Jake Shimabukuro is a master of a very humble musical instrument: the ukelele.

    Enjoy! And then add your own examples.

    That was awesome Broach.....enjoyed listening to that while working.

    I use to play the Ukelele until grade four.

        I thought this seemed familiar to me. I had seen this video a while back. He is pretty amazing.

          The forum is busiest from Monday to Friday. It's quite slow on the weekends.

          Like you mentioned with the other forums, this forum has slowed down considerably over the past two or three years....

          I think she looks pretty good. My only critique would be that her hips are rather narrow that they don't seem to be in proportion to her body. I would bump them out just some more....

          Good evening, everyone.

          As a new member to this excellent forum, I have no idea whether the current level of activity is to be expected, but it seems very quiet at just a few posts per day....

          Comment on Typesetting. Can you spot my obsession?

          Two spaces was never a thing. Ever. It was invented by high school typewriting teachers who thought that the monospaced letters on a typewriter made it difficult to see where the end of a sentence occurred....

          It's an interesting request. I think the answer depends on what your designing. Who's going to use it, why, and what solution makes the most sense from the end user's view.
