De Los Santos 1 Rafael De Los Santos Mrs. Nadia Arensdorf ENGL 1301 09/14/17 Music Equals Me Some people are into quilting, painting, and dancing, I’m into music. A regular person listening to music just listens to music. I, on the other hand, break down and analyze music. I've listed multiple genres, that are my top favorites. In the way that, Blues, Rock and Roll, and Rhythm and Blues, have made a significant impact in musical history and myself. Blues is an area that has greatly influenced many musicians, such as John Mayer and Elvis Presley. John Mayer was inspired by Eric Clapton and B.B King. Johns’ music like “Gravity” and “Daughters” and many other of his songs were greatly influenced by blues. Elvis turned popular music upside down by blending country, pop, and gospel with blues. Young Elvis lived next to African American neighborhoods and could listen to the blues ooze out of the neighborhood adjacent to him. Thus, Elvis incorporated blues to his music in some sort of way or fashion, therefore encouraging and inspiring me to write more soulful music.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
