I made my first Video recording.   It is just a quickie with Windows Movie maker live and a cheap set of Logitech headphones.  You can view it here:

I am stillhave a lot to learn and it's not perfect, but I wanted to share with the group.

Sounds pretty good besides the clipping, you could try turning your mic level down.

Sounds good, playing with ur sound level might have helped. Mine too. I had my volume all the way up and about blew my eardrums out when u started. For some reason what I hear isnt what the mic picks up. Strange isn't it.  Keep at it. Good looking Warmstone C.

Those are very good and true comments.  I will dig around the program and see if I can edit the sound level some.  Windows movie maker is a very crude tool for making recordings and even more so for editing them after you record.

I couldn't fail to disagree with you less.

Well done! It's not so easy to put yourself out there the first time.

You're doing really well  Grin
I agree with the fact that mic volume is a little high though.
Congrats on doing what I have yet the guts to do!

Thanks guys, I am working on a couple of other songs, I hope to post something else in a few days, but I need a little time to play with the sound settings a bit more first.  I am also wanting to get a boom stand so I can use my Sure SM58 instead of that cheap headset mic.

It has been a while since I posted a progress type of thing so here goes.  I am working some on lesson 13, but struggling with reading the rhythm of most of the songs so I am not doing very well with that.   

I have been playing with the Christmas  song book that I bought and making some progress, but I have been mostly playing songs from some of my hymn books.  I did transpose a song from Eb to D Saturday (by ear) with the plan of playing it at church Sunday as part of the program. Unfortunately they decided not to do that one at the last second  so I still haven't played my MO at church.  Maybe I will manage to do that soon.

Hey,  how did you manage to get the link for mountain ocarinas to come out on the info on Youtube? I typed it in on my youtube vids but it's not coming out as a link? Help?

My wife has some health problems so I just don't have time to get out as much as I would like.  I am wanting to get a boom stand so I can use a real microphone in my recordings instead of that low quality headset ( I am also a sound guy so I am a bit picky about quality).  As for the link I think I just typed it in.  I don't remember for sure.

Sorry to hear your wife is unwell.
I was just funnin'.
Well, I typed it in too must just be my silly computer, or the loose nut behind the keyboard. Sigh.   
I want to find the thing that makes soft reverb. I downloaded audacity but can't figure out that reverb thing at all! It's crazy! I'm spending way to much time messing around with this stuff!

Well I got the Boom stand, now I just need to find the time to play with the settings position etc to get a good recording. 

I am still putting the lessons on hold and working on the Christmas book and a couple of the hymnals I have.  I do plan on getting back to the lessons some day, maybe after Christmas.

I haven't wrote anything on here in a while so I thought I would give a quick update.  I am still working on the Christmas Song Book.  I have some that are starting to sound pretty good now, so hopefully I will have some of them ready in time.

I tried out the tuner link that is posted on another place in the forums.  It let me know that I still have a way to go before I am going to be ready to play with other people.  I still haven't tried recording with the boom stand and better mic.  It seems like their are always other things that need to happen first.

I think what it tells you is that you have way to go before playing with tuners. People are a different matter  Wink

I tried playing with a keyboard a few weeks ago I was way sharp.  It takes more breath pressure to play my Harmonicas than the MO so I guess I am still playing the MO with too much pressure because of that.
