CONCESSION: Like the strawman, the concession technique presents the opposing viewpoint, but it does not proceed to demolish the opposition. Instead, it concedes that the opposition has a valid point but that, even so, the positive argument is the stronger one. This method is particularly valuable when you know your reader holds the opposing view.
Basically, a good introduction provides the reader with a brief overview of your topic and an explanation of your thesis. A good introduction is fresh, engaging, and interesting. Successful introductions don’t rely on clichés or irrelevant information to demonstrate their point. Be brief, be concise, be engaging. Good luck.

Instrumental dexterity and virtuosity take on completely different meanings when building and performing on DIY/invented instruments which have little to no context/canon to draw on. This issue is manageable when dealing with instruments that are somewhat similar to existing instruments ( Specty , Electric Whisks , Sidrassi-Tom ), although their hybrid nature creates both physically and mentally complex interactions. But it certainly becomes complicated when dealing with simpler (digital) instruments driven by concept , software , or systematic interaction . The code underlying these instruments can “be seen as the wood and strings of the digital instrument maker” ( Magnusson 2010 ). How does one become a virtuoso of an instrument made out of only two knobs ? There is nothing unusual about the physical dexterity involved in performing with such an instrument, so what then makes one a virtuoso at it? And if it is not a physical dexterity, where does that virtuosity reside?
