? Private memory techniques help to achieve memorize scales and musical note positions on the guitar in 10 minutes ? Combine musical intervals, chords, arpeggios, key modes and practice mantras to let you play more freely on a fretboard ? Practical examples and licks enhance your playing techniques as well as the familiarity of scale graphics. This handbook uses the most effective memory technique; the concept of Image Memorization Method (according to experiences, it can be achieved in 10 minutes) can help your brain memorize scale graphics in the fretboard in a short time and also to teach you enhancing practices and methods of application. In addition to stimulating your thinking of musical notes and fingerings on the fretboard, the most important thing is to help you be able to cleverly apply scales and chords as well as their matching via the familiarity of the fretboard. During performances, it is the main goal of this handbook that you know the scale positions where your fingers are located anytime. In addition, this second version handbook has more demonstrations than the first version as well as clearer and plenty of explanations. In addition to the faster and efficient memory fretboard, the rich contents lively combine various kinds of practice as well as thinking methods. And this better allows you to obtain great achievements in such as intervals, chords, arpeggios, key modes as well as musical concepts. If you?? ???? Just want to play easy musical notes but you can never find the right positions ???? Want to leave playing and singing along level but you cannot find the directions ????

The BIM Managers Handbook: Guidance for Professionals in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a design and construction software that manages not just graphics, but also information—information that enables the automatic generation of drawings and reports, design analysis, schedule simulation, facilities management, and cost analysis—ultimately enabling any building team to make better-informed decisions. This allows a range of professionals—architects; engineers, construction managers, surveyors, cost estimators, project managers, and facility managers—to share information throughout a buildings lifecycle. BIM is now recognized worldwide for the efficiencies it delivers in terms of working collaboratively, communication, processes, cost savings, and a propertys lifecycle management. With the widespread adoption of BIM, BIM Managers have become a much-needed new breed of professionals in architectural, engineering, and construction practice. Their role is often misunderstood and ill-defined, and such are the day-to-day deliverables that they are likely to face. The BIM Managers Handbook provides an in-depth account of the breadth of activities that any BIM Manager or staff member, who is actively engaged in the delivery of a project, is required to undertake. Providing prereleases of the final work, The BIM Managers Handbook ePart series launches with Best Practice BIM. This provides a touchstone for getting BIM practice right. It highlights the key tasks and challenges faced by BIM Managers, drawing from the experience of top BIM Managers worldwide.

Unique in its integration of individual topics to achieve a full-system approach, this book addresses all the aspects essential for industrial inkjet printing. After an introduction listing the industrial printing techniques available, the text goes on to discuss individual topics, such as ink, printheads and substrates, followed by metrology techniques that are required for reliable systems. Three iteration cycles are then described, including the adaptation of the ink to the printhead, the optimization of the ink to the substrate and the integration of machine manufacturing, monitoring, and data handling, among others. Finally, the book summarizes a number of case studies and success stories from selected areas, including graphics, printed electronics, and 3D printing as well a list of ink suppliers, printhead manufacturers and integrators. Practical hints are included throughout for a direct hands-on experience. Invaluable for industrial users and academics, whether ink developers or mechanical engineers, and working in areas ranging from metrology to intellectual property.
