DescriptionThe solos in this collection present a myriad of moods on the guitar. They were written to be very expressive, contemplative pieces which could be performed in a variety of secular and sacred settings. Most of them are from three solo collections previously released, entitled Guitar Meditations (MB22029), Guitar Airs and Ballads (MB22039) and Timeless Solos for Guitar (MB22041). Some of the pieces were scored for 7-string guitar; however, they can also be performed on 6-string guitar—indicated are the alternate 6-string pedal tones in the tablature part. Many of the solos use a cross-picking technique alternating higher position closed strings and open strings, resulting in a ´´harp-like” effect. The included tablature parts allow for a clear presentation of this effect and clarify where on the fingerboard these passages should be played. A number of the pieces are in Dropped D tuning, highlighting the rich resonance that tuning gives the instrument. All of these solos may be performed by the classical or fingerstyle guitarist or, as originally performed, with a pick. Explore the diverse moods presented in this collection and make full use of the many avenues of expression offered in these pieces! A companion dual CD is available with all 25 solos included.

Stoicism is often misunderstood merely as enduring hardship without complaint, but this is a modern misconception. The ancient Stoics had a much more complex view of life and the world. In Stoicism, we’ll look at the full story, including:The history of the ancient StoicsThe nature of good and evil, virtue and viceThe difference between the things we can control and the things we can’tLiving in the present while dealing with fears of the futureLogic and practical reasoningStoicism´s role in the development of a new state of mindStoicism´s role in the discovery of a new consciousnessHow to hold to ancient beliefs in a modern societyWe all want to live a good life. We want to do our part, enjoy life, and do some good in the world. It sounds simple - and in some sense it is - but tying the big picture to everyday life is often hard. We’re bombarded with images and stories about people who are more beautiful than us, richer than us, more famous than us. We face a world of human frailties - ours and others - that often make life difficult and unpleasant. But we get to decide who we are. We get to decide how we’re going to look at our mistakes. We get to decide how we’re going to look at the insults and injuries others inflict upon us. We get to decide what is important and what is not. In this audiobook, I explain how Stoicism is far richer and deeper than simply enduring hardship without complaint and provide a road map for applying classic Stoic principles in a modern world. My comprehensive guide is an exploration of Stoicism in clear and common language suitable for nonacademic audiences, while also providing a practical guide for living your best life. In it, you’ll learn how to prioritize the things you can control. You’ll learn how to acknowledge insult, injury, and your own past mistakes without 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Adam Day.
