Inspired by a love of music (and a great respect and admiration for Jimi Hendrix), Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen set out to create the Experience Music Project (EMP) in Seattle. In an innovative and creative building design by noted architect Frank Gehry, Allen showcases some of the over 80,000 items related to the history of music over the past century. On the site, visitors will find a number of helpful resources, ranging from the types of ongoing and exhibits hosted at the EMP to an event calendar detailing the many performances and talks held at the facility. One of the site's most fun and engaging features is the online Music Interviews, which profile music critics, women in rock and roll, and hip-hop artists such as Force MDs and Doug E. Fresh. For up and coming guitar players, there is a section highlighting "Quick Tips" that will help individuals improve their sound and instrumental style. Overall, the site is a nice resource for those interested in learning about this rather interactive and hands-on museum.
