Unleash the song of your soul with Zen Guitar, a contemplative handbook that draws on ancient Eastern wisdom and applies it to music and performance. Each of us carries a song inside us, the song that makes us human. Zen Guitar provides the key to unlocking this song—a series of life lessons presented through the metaphor of music. Philip Sudo offers his own experiences with music to enable us to rediscover the harmony in each of our lives and open ourselves to Zen awareness uniquely suited to the Western Mind. Through fifty-eight lessons that provide focus and a guide, the reader is led through to Zen awareness. This harmony is further illuminated through quotes from sources ranging from Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix to Miles Davis. From those who have never strummed a guitar to the more experienced, Zen Guitar shows how the path of music offers fulfillment in all aspects of life—a winning idea and an instant classic.

Zen philosophy tells us that the great truth of the universe applies to all things at all times. Every moment of life, from guitar playing to working at the computer, to making love, offers a chance for Zen realization. Just awaken to that truth, Zen masters say; how and where do not matter. Sex offers the same opportunity for enlightenment as anything else. Zen Sex guides readers to the realization of that opportunity with "The Ten Stages of Zen Sex" and "The Six Principles in the Way of Making Love." Philip Sudo reminds our sex-obsessed age that not only is sex a fundamentally spiritual endeavour, it is indeed sacred. This elegant, gorgeous book will appeal not only to Zen practitioners, but to any one looking for enlightenment and spirituality in all aspects of life. Great gift potential. Good for the sex book audience, Zen practitioners and readers looking for meaningful sex. While there are quite a few books that deal with spirituality and sex from the Tantric and Taoist tradition, no other book has brought together Zen and sex. Easy-to-do practices help readers learn and experience Zen sex.

Hardcore Zen

Zen, plain and simple, with no BS. This is not your typical Zen book. Brad Warner, a young punk who grew up to be a Zen master, spares no one. This bold new approach to the "Why?" of Zen Buddhism is as strongly grounded in the tradition of Zen as it is utterly revolutionary. Warner's voice is hilarious, and he calls on the wisdom of everyone from punk and pop culture icons to the Buddha himself to make sure his points come through loud and clear. As it prods readers to question everything, Hardcore Zen is both an approach and a departure, leaving behind the soft and lyrical for the gritty and stark perspective of a new generation. This new edition will feature an afterword from the author.

(Technical Reference). Here, in a replica of a recently exhumed tome (miraculously preserved within the chassis of a Sound Tools rig at the bottom of the La Brea Tar Pits), we present Mixerman's philosophies on the art of mixing. Well known for his hilarious exploits in The Daily Adventures of Mixerman , the author now provides his tactical reasoning without the colored lens of absurdist big-label disasters. In Rev 2 , Mixerman distills a successful mixing career's worth of lessons and realizations into understandable and sensible terms for both enthusiastic musician and professional technician alike. This enhanced multimedia edition brings mixers deeper into the concepts covered in the text. In nearly two hours of video clips, Mixerman provides invaluable insight into the various aspects of mixing: creating the rough mix, EQ, parallel compression, automation, and more. As Mixerman points out, "If you change how you think about mixing, you'll be well on your way to learning how to mix." This new edition features an updated "Gear" chapter.
