Calcite in the limestone commonly originates from marine organisms but can also be present through groundwater that precipitated the material.
Calcite can either be precipitated or dissolved by ground water depending on several environmental factors. It can become less soluble as the water temperature increases -a peculiar characteristic. In the right conditions, calcite forms mineral coatings that glue the rock grains together or fill cracks and fractures in the stone.
The varying colours prevalent in this stone derive from the impurities that are present, especially on weathered surfaces. These impurities can be clay, organic remains, sand and iron oxide. Formations of the stone can be crystalline, granular, clastic or massive and can be classified more precisely as Folk and Dunham.
Travertine is a variety of limestone found along the edges of water such as hot and cold springs, streams and waterfalls. The material can reform into marble during geographical shifts over time such as mountain building, and is more resistant then other sedimentary rocks, usually occuring amongst hills and typically amongst clay soils. Examples of huge formations can be seen at County Clare in Ireland, Malham Cove in North Yorkshire and the Isle of White. The material is also prevalent in Sweden, the United States and Vietnam.
Limestone is commonly used in architecture across the world in modern construction in Europe and North America and in many older landmarks such as the great pyramids in Egypt which are made entirely from the same. There is a city in Ontario, Canada that is nicknamed Limestone City because every building there is built from it. Limestone is relatively easy to work with and commonly available which is why it gets used extensively in construction despite the cost as it is an expensive material.
Marble and limestone tiles are susceptible to acid rain because of their porous qualities, and this can be a huge problem for statues and buildings alike. When cleaning the stone, a neutral or mild alkaline solution should be used at all times to prevent further erosion of the rock.

There are many different ways that you can get lessons that will help you teach yourself guitar. There are guitar magazines, dvd’s, cd’s, books, tablature, online membership sites, teachers and probably a dozen other methods that I haven’t even thought of. One of the oldest and most popular ways is the use of guitar magazines. You can find many of these magazines at your local bookstore, grocery store or corner/convenience store. Most of them will contain lessons, gear reviews, album reviews, interviews with guitar players and some even throw in a cd or dvd that have video lessons and gear demonstrations. If you really like a particular guitar magazine, subscriptions are available at discounted yearly or more rates.
So which one is the best? Well that depends on a few things:
1. Where you are in your guitar playing? Beginner, intermediate or advanced?
2. What style of music are you into? Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Blues, Country etc.?
3. What do you want more of in your guitar magazine? Tabs, lessons, gear reviews?
Before you go running off to your local magazine stand to look for a magazine that’s right for you, check out the following list that I have put together for you of 3 of the best guitar magazines that are available today. Please keep in mind that these are my choices of the top 3 and depending on your taste, you may think another publication is better. But at least this list will give you a head start and you don’t have to thumb through every magazine on the rack.
Guitar World is one of the most popular monthly magazines on the market and contains guitar and bass tablature of around five songs per issue. The lessons are directed at beginner and intermediate players and most of the lessons, tabs and interviews are in the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal genres. The subscriptions are available at a pretty hefty discount and you can also upgrade your subscription and get a bonus cd-rom with each magazine. These cd-roms will play video lessons, gear demonstrations and music from some amazing guitarists. For more information check out http://www.guitarworld.com.
Total guitar is a monthly magazine from the U.K. and is the most popular guitar magazine in Europe. This is in my opinion the best magazine for beginner guitarists. Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of lessons for guitar players of all abilities but Total Guitar focuses mostly on the novice. The mag has a nice variety of tab for Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Blues, Punk, Country and Folk, so there is something for everyone. Another great thing about Total Guitar is that unlike most guitar magazines, they don’t focus on articles and expensive gear but focus on teaching beginner guitar players how to play properly.
Each magazine also comes with a free cd that contains audio examples of the lessons and best of all, backing tracks for all the tabs. These backing tracks are great because they have the guitar parts missing so you can jam along with the song just like you were playing with the band.
The only downfall with this publication is that if you live outside of the U.K., expect to pay a lot for a subscription. Check out http://www.totalguitar.co.uk/ for more information.
Made by the same company that makes Total Guitar, Guitar Techniques is also a top-notch magazine. Guitar Techniques also has a massive amount of lessons that are spread out along many genres including Rock, Heavy Metal, Blues, Jazz and County. This magazine specializes in guitar instruction and it shows. You also get a cd with the backing tracks for the tabs and lesson examples.
You’ll get everything from beginner tips to some more advanced soloing lessons. They also get right into the different styles or techniques of your favorite guitarists. They explain exactly what scales and techniques they use and how the artist gets their sound. They then give you examples tabbed out so you can learn exactly how to play it. For more information go to http://www.guitar-techniques.com/.
So there you have my list of the Top 3 Guitar Magazines that will help you teach yourself guitar. Hopefully it has made your choice a little easier. Now go get it and start shredding!
