Been working on recording a few videos to put up on Youtube and Vimeo. I prefer Vimeo because the quality is better, but youtube is more popular. I will just probably just end up throwing my videos on both. I have just been recording using my Macbook as the camera and my Zoom H4 to capture the audio, all into iMovie 09. Its pretty easy to use. I am happy with the audio/video quality when i export the project to a .mov file, but when i upload to Youtube or Vimeo the audio always ends up degraded. Maybe someone who knows more than me can chime in. I hear some pretty good audio quality on youtube and vimeo, perhaps its because those folks have a better setup than me. But if i am happy with the quality of the rendered .mov file, i just to find a way to preserve that as it gets put online. Will have to do some research.
So here is a video i recorded last night, the traditional reel called Father Kellys. Its pretty standard on the irish session scene. Its one of the two ways i arrange reels, this one being simpler. I more or less try to play the melody in such a way that i can use hammer ons and pull offs, combined with melodic playing up the neck, to make it flow. I then fit in bass notes where i can.
I hope you enjoy it, and let me know what you all think. I want to post some more videos in the future, its fun making them.
