It's not that every user is a noob regarding to this, but for some users 
this is less intuitive to use, when being musically creative and perhaps 
Louigi (seemingly from Italy, but perhaps from New England or somewhere

he is creative, but not regarding to political issues.

OT: I wouldn't be surprised if Louigi is from New England :D.
