Kirsten Macaulay's insight:

"All of this is really personal preference, and whatever sounds good to you is what you should use! But this is where we'd recommend at least starting your tweaking. Play around and see what sounds best to you—and if it sounds fine without it, then you can just leave it flat (which is what I generally do). If you want more ideas, this old Lifehacker thread is a great place to see what others prefer as well. Good luck, and have fun!"

By education Borodin was a doctor. He graduated from the Medical Academy, and he was a friend of ...
Kirsten Macaulay's insight:

Despite his enthusiasm for music, Borodin for a long time treated music as a secondary cause. Everything changed when he met Mussorgsky. Borodin then worked in the hospital, where Mussorgsky was treated. They met, talked, and drank beer. Borodin told him music is a good thing, "but why break a life for it?"

Mussorgsky agreed, and asked Borodin if he knew the composer Schumann. Borodin said he didn't, so Mussorgsky began to play. After that Borodin realized that life has to be changed somehow, without music he couldn’t live.
