FEATURED: ‘ Bill Keith – Obituary – 🎼Master of Blue Grass Banjo ‘

Standard

#AceMediaNews – Nov.02: Master of bluegrass banjo who brought complex fiddle tunes into the repertoire

Bill Keith, who has died aged 75, was a banjo player whose influence on bluegrass music in the 1960s and 70s was second only to that of the original bluegrass banjoist, Earl Scruggs. In particular his expansion of banjo technique to incorporate the playing of complex fiddle tunes inspired a generation of musicians to extend both their own skills and the scope of the bluegrass repertoire.

Hearing him execute one of those fast and demanding tunes, Devil’s Dream, backstage at the Grand Ole Opry in 1963, Bill Monroe, “the father of bluegrass”, invited him to join his Blue Grass Boys. Since there could be only one Bill in the group, Monroe used Keith’s middle name, Brad. “Before he came along,” said Monroe, “no banjo player could play those old fiddle numbers right. You have to play like Brad or you would be faking your way through a number.”

#Snapchat Adds New #Video Features

#AceSocialNews – Nov.02: This week Snapchat added new video features to its filters which have been dubbed ‘speed modifiers’. Available on both iOS and Android, the new effects allow you to slo-mo, rewind or fast-forward your short clips – you can find them by sliding to the right on the app as you do with the colour filters. The service is hoped to be more useful for creatives who are increasingly using the app to reach large audiences.However, the service is more limited than Instagram’s Boomerang – videos can only move backwards or forwards in one clip, not both.

The update also brings 3D Touch capability for the iPhone 6s and 6S+. By strong tapping on your Snapchat icon, the app will bring up a short-cut menu to chat or add new friends.

On Wednesday Snapchat updated their terms of service. The new privacy policY indicates that Snapchat has the rights to reproduce, modify and republish your photos and save those photos to Snapchat’s servers, specifically in relation to the ‘Live Story’ feature, similarly to how Instagram did a few years back. This is likely to annoy or even outrage some users as this means that photos are not as disposable as they were.

So if you’re thinking about installing the update, perhaps think twice about the content you’re sharing, and who you REALLY want to see it!
