Re: Rookie fun.You advanced guys won't be impressed...
Is there not a level adjustment in your webcam software? Last time I used my webcam was to record some acoustic years ago, sounded awful
I haven't noticed. I might have to dig a little deeper to find that.
If you want an affordable mic I can recommend the Blue Yeti USB. Or you can go direct and use PodFarm or similar.
I'm considering a better set up because I do like making the videos. One thing they do for me is to give me a point a refference for my progress. I've got some early ones that nobody will ever see.
Sounds pretty good though Steve, do you transcribe these yourself? The only thing I would say is to work on your muting a little, you've got a few open strings ringing through sometimes when you lift your fingers.
Thanks. I'll work on that. If I were taking private lessons I'm sure I'd have heard that already, but since I'm working from books I need to rely on the constructive suggestions of those who can make them.
As for transcribing Hey Jude, way back when with my first go with the guitar I pretty much sounded it out from my knowledge of the song without even playing the recording and it sounded pretty good, but it was in the wrong key.
These days I have a Beatles song book, and some other sheet music, and I actually know what notes are where, so when I found the right key i was able to put it together pretty quickly becuase I knew how many steps apart the notes were from my earlier version. I had the same deal happen with Nowhere Man, and the correct key makes it much more difficult to play. That was the first song I've learned where I had to change my hand position a little to reach all the notes.
