Product Description by our Music Experts
If you are just ghastly at the guitar or terrible at the trumpet then fear not! Dan Wieden’s Musical Ruler is here to create a musician out of just about anyone.
‘Become a Musician in just a few hours!’
The guru of ruler playing, the ‘original master’ himself, Dan Wieden is here to take you back to basics and teach you the fine art of ruler playing. If you find yourself staring at your ruler of an English Lesson and thinking ‘this has so much more to give’, then perhaps ruler playing is for you?
If you are that philosopher then chances are you have already experimented with the common ruler. For those who would like to be guided to greatness and become a pro ruler-ist, then this illustrated guide with its own plastic 30cm ruler, complete with note markings, is a sound investment.
Musical prowess welcomed but not required
This comical book is a great read even for those who have never expressed an interest in playing the ruler. Wieden runs through the basics; from different types and how to hold and finger your instrument to the optimum table to twang your ruler off. There are also 4 songs to play in the book; all classics such as Puff the Magic Dragon!
You could say that Dan Wieden’s Musical Ruler handbook is the complete theoretical and practical guide to the instrument that is the ruler. Those haters who say you can’t learn how to play an instrument from a book obviously haven’t read this one.
This entertaining instrument and jokey guide is ideal for anyone with a sense of humour and is an unusual gift idea, guaranteed to be a great way to while away a few hours. Just remember that your finely tuned ruler is in the key of C and that your instrument can actually double-up as a useful implement for drawing straight lines.
So open your heart to Dan Wieden’s Musical Ruler and discover for yourself that its limits are merely the ‘measurements of your imagination’.
