  • 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.

    I use to play the Ukelele until grade four.

          I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....

          It's another social media app that allows you to connect with people, in some ways it's easier than others. Its one more way to market yourself, and people have gotten plenty of work off twitter alone....
