Jake's Album Choice of the Week#7: Nirvana - Nevermind

This album by Nirvana was release almost 1 year after my birth and I've been listening to this band since I was very young. Nevermind is one of, if not, Nirvana's most popular and influential albums still to this day. Even though this is Nirvana's best overall album, my all time favorite song would have to be "Dumb". Most people have heard of Nirvana because of Kurt Cobain, who was an incredibly talented musician and songwriter. Unfortunately, Kurt Cobain took his own life in 1994. If you haven't heard of Nirvana I definitely suggest you check them out.

Jake's Album Choice of the Week#6: Led Zeppelin - IV

If you are a fan of rock n' roll I'm almost 100% certain you've heard for Led Zeppelin. Even if you don't like rock there is a very strong chance you've heard of this band at least once in your life. Led Zeppelin in arguable the best band to have ever been formed and after listening to them for many years it's easy to see why. Of all their albums, IV is definitely at the top of the list. This album contains the famous "stairway to heaven" which is one of the greatest songs ever in my opinion. So go check this album out if you haven't already and if you like what you hear, go check out their movie called "The song remains the same" if you want an awesome visual/trippy concert experience.

Making Music/Beats/Rhythms

So I've been playing guitar and other various instruments for a long time and I'm finally giving into the recording/song making craze.  One of my good friends introduced me to a nice editing software and I plan on getting familiar with it and we'll see what happens! If anyone produces tracks let me know and I'll take a listen to what you've made!

Jake's Album Choice of the Week#5: Metallica - The Black Album

The first album I purchased as a youth was Metallica's self titled album, as known as "The Black Album". Metallica is one of the greatest heavy metal bands ever and I haven't met a single person who hasn't heard of this killer band. I am a Metallica fan through and through and this album is definitely in my top ten all time favorite albums. Check this incredible album out and you won't be disappointed.
