I tried learning this on the guitar from the top Google searches on different guitar chord sites, and not only is it really hard to play with the chord voicings they provide, it also doesn’t sound right either.
Here’s what they give (incorrect “standard” chord voicings which don’t sound like the recording):
G320003(or320033)«---Idon'tthink either of these are correct
If you listen carefully, there’s a slide in the root note between G and Dm which leads me to believe that Dm is actually played in an alternate voicing (on the 5th string).
Try this out. It fits better in the hand too:
Am x02210«---Same asoriginal
G3200xx«---Idon'thear any high strings inthe recording,so mute them
Dm x5776x«---Your index finger on theAstringwill glide up nicely from the2ndtothe5thfret.
And then for the chorus, It’s all chords on the first string since it’s easier to get that muted sound with your left index finger
Hope this saves you all some time and pain from trying to learn it the wrong way (which also doesn’t sound anything like the recording).
If you use Smartling for translation management and it’s all setup for production, here’s how to override those values on your local development environment to download pseudo-translations for easier debugging if you don’t need to test actual translations.
Add this to your settings.local.php:
// Force to always download pseudo translations (altered strings).
I just upgraded from my 2018 13″ MacBook Pro because the keyboard started randomly repeating letters “I”, “O”, and “T” which made it really hard to work fast when I had to backspace every 5 words or so.
When I heard that the 16″ MBP was in the refurb store, I couldn’t wait to try out the new Magic Keyboard. Unfortunately, all the Apple Stores are closed now, so I couldn’t go into the store to try it first. Plus, I wanted to know how the Magic Keyboard would work for me I the long term.
My first impression when I got my “new” refurb 16″ was that the keyboard FELT AMAZING. I absolutely loved it. And I loved thinking that I would never run into any keyboard reliability issues again.
But after using the Magic Keyboard for work for a week (about 10-12 hours per day), I have to say, my RSIs are getting worse. So I wanted to write up something really quick in case anyone else with the same issues as me have concerns about switching to the Magic Keyboard if they also prefer the feel of the butterfly switches.
Ok so let me rephrase the title, the butterfly switches FEEL better for me. Here are the reasons.
It’s been a challenge finding a place to record some sax stuff in my small condo, and all the music places (stores/studios/etc) are closed due to COVID-19. Then it dawned on me that I can record in my car!
I had to figure this out asap because my friend and former bandmate Richard Borja asked me to record a sax solo for a song he’s been working on. He asked me to post my equipment so here it is.
Audio interface: M-Audio AIR 192|8 (bonus: gets power thru USB)
Microphone: Shure B98H (from wireless mic system) + Shure RK100PK adapter to connect directly to via XLR.
I’m new to migrate. And it’s a beast. But I think after a few dozen hours of diligence, I think I’ve figured out my preferred method.
This post is for someone who already understands how to use views, develop custom modules, and knows how to use drush migration operations.
I originally tried using migrate_drupal, which honestly did a great job at migrating my user roles, users, and taxonomies. But the site I am migrating is 5 years old with a good amount of technical debt having been touched by over 10 (and maybe even 20) developers over its lifetime, so I think it’s time for a fresh start. I want to migrate everything else (content types, files, etc) manually.
All the Drupal 7 content types were using image (file) fields, but I want the new Drupal 8 site to use media fields. I couldn’t use the migration provided by migrate_drupal, so I had to get creative.
This will be a two step process:
Use D7 views_datasource module to create JSON endpoints on my old site (and since we’re using a JSON source, you can honestly migrate from anything).
Lots of other places suggestion using text-shadow to handle bold hover/active states. My client had a complaint that it made the text look blurry (which it absolutely does). Here’s my solution (written using general CSS selectors). Let me know what you think!
The letter-spacing is not perfect, and there is still a tiny sub-pixel of movement, but it was a compromise between actually-bold text and blurry-bold text. Adjust to your needs.
I spent a number of hours yesterday trying to figure out how to customize individual links for the main menu. Drupal 8 is a bit more straightforward, but it isn’t quite so obvious in Drupal 7. There are no template suggestions or theme hooks in the HTML comments when you turn theme debugging on, so it took me a while to figure it out.
Thankfully, with the help of PhpStorm and xdebug, I was able to pinpoint what template file to create: menu-link--main-menu.tpl.php
Here’s my code that allows me to replicate the menu links exactly. Then customize as you wish.
Open PhpStorm preferences (⌘,) and go to the Code Sniffer settings. Click the “…” button.Enter the path to your “phpcs” file and click “Validate”. It should be ~/.composer/vendor/squizlabs/php_codesniffer/scripts/phpcs (replace “~” with your actual home directory) Go back to the PhpStorm preferences, navigate to “Editor » Inspections”, enable “PHP Code Sniffer validation”, then choose “Drupal” in the “Coding standard” dropdown. Enjoy!
I was managing and backend developer for this project. They were a very particular client, but we managed to impress them! Browsing through their projects is quite enjoyable due to how all the content is tagged.
Highlights: SCSS Animations, Geolocation, Public photo uploads
Worked with startup owner and team of freelance graphic designers to develop a graphically interactive animated website. Also leveraged Drupal 8 CMS with Google Maps API and geolocation services to allow startup to maintain their own map markers in a user-friendly way.
Documentation for Drupal 8 is still really lacking. There is SOME documentation out there, but in typical Drupal 8 fashion, you have to sift through all of the pages and all of the content to find exactly what is relevant to you. This guide is an attempt to get you quickly started.
This guide is for dummies, but it also assumes you know the basics of Drupal 8. Specifically, you should be comfortable getting an installation of Drupal 8 up on your own, you have you’re comfortable editing text (config) files, and you have basic site-building skills (Creating content types, creating views, etc).
Before we get started, I want to say that, when I am making an API for a new app, I want to make it FAST. I am comfortable working with the MEAN stack (using MongoDB + Express to run your API server), but I consider myself fairly proficient in Drupal, so why reinvent the wheel every time manually writing an API when Drupal already does a great job at assembling and delivering data? I’m able to get my API working with GET requests in less than 5 minutes, and POST requests in less than 15 minutes.
Made all their clinical trials (and lots of other different content) easily accessible for viewing by the public. Also contains a member-only section with lots more content for medical professionals to search through.
This was an already existing website that needed a redesign. I created the new theme based on a design provided by Pivot (now 8 Ronin). I also created a new iOS app for them to handle their membership program scanning terminals.
This was my first site released through my first full-time job ever: iFactory. They have a wonderful team of producers, designers, developers, and much more. I learned so much through this project and am looking forward to learning many more things.
I’m in the news! I started a new job almost half a year ago as a Drupal developer. When I started developing with Drupal almost about 6 years ago, I had no idea that it would take me this far. I always thought that Drupal was way more trouble than it was worth. Well, it turns out that all my learning paid off!
