Fire has many faces. When we think of fire we imagine a vision and a bright image that warns us not to play with it. A flame is a spark, which develops into a fire. My composition is called Fire and therefore starts of quietly and unnoticeably. It is like a fire of a prehistoric man that intensifies slowly, until that point when it becomes dangerous. It burns for a while and then, just as any fire, it burns out. In my compositions I used elements of smooth jazz and some elements of funk. The bass guitar gives the composition colour, importance and playfulness, which is a characteristic of a fire. Subscribe me to your mailing list!

Slapping and popping are ways to produce percussive sounds on a stringed instrument. It is primarily used on the double bass or bass guitar. Slapping on bass guitar involves using the edge of one's knuckle, where it is particularly bony, to quickly strike the string against the fretboard. On bass guitars, this is commonly done with the thumb, while on double bass, the edge of the hand or index finger may be used. Popping refers to pulling the string away from the fretboard and quickly releasing it so it snaps back against the fretboard. On bass guitar, the two techniques are commonly used together in alternation, though either may be used separately. On the double bass, the technique was developed in Western swing bands in the s, and spread to other genres, including jazz , rockabilly , and other offshoots of those styles. On the bass guitar, the technique is widely credited to Larry Graham , an electric bassist playing with Sly and the Family Stone in the late s. The technique quickly spread to the funk and disco genres.
The doctrinal and afterlife issues around a non-temple marriage are an entirely different topic, and one that I am personally much more at peace with than my questions about how one might make an interfaith marriage work in this life. Her home time is exclusively for the kids and paper work. Do you have a few suggestions for talking points I may want to bring up from stuff directly on LDS. The best advice I can give is stay true to yourself.
I asked, he refused. I wish you all well on your recovery from this particularly vile church. Trust me, I too tried to make it work with my very Mormon also returned missionary ex-girlfriend. Unless you have those same understandings, I'm sad to say the relationship is almost certainly doomed. My experience has been that personal similarities and differences are a bigger element than cultural differences. This guy is always busy. I am becoming more lonely now than before. Mormon's view marriages outside the temple to be counterfeit and you can't get into the temple without converting to the religion. Mormons are very particular about dressing.
