We all love the classics; we consider them to be modern standards. Whether it's Blue in Green, Flamenco Sketches, Giant StepsRuby My Dear (Monk)... or even Ruby My Dear (Coltrane), we can never get enough. But let's not forget that while we love these songs and the artists who created them, we're musicians as well! We all strum and blow and drum and sing. So in the interest of musical do-it-yourselfers everywhere, check out these sheet music and CD combos!

ShoeIt’s summer time, ladies, which is the perfect time to grab a daiquiri, kick off your flip-flops, and relax on your lounger with your fave chick lit.

Hmm … sounds like a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon (or any afternoon for that matter), but what is chick lit? According to Chick Lit USA, the term refers to modern literature for women -- that is written about late 20- and 30-something singles (aka singletons) as they search for the perfect partner.
