Hehe, featuring my new babies - the snared Lapdrum (http://www.slapdrum.com) & my Honer Student Melodica. Also featuring my generic guitar, The Fluke, and my skinny fingers.

Doesn't seem to synch quite right towards the end, but i guess it's the same way with life. Hope you guys like!

Thanks!! I ordered the lapdrum right off their website (http://www.slapdrum.com) - Chris, the guy who makes them, is awesome - super nice, quick to respond, quick to ship, and really helpful. They got a bunch of other sweet stuff on there that I wanted, but the Lappy was all I could afford right now : (

I usually use Sony Vegas for my vids and mix all the audio with Adobe Audition. Really basic setup, but it works! Filming took me about an hour and a half, and editing took me, well, much longer than that ... :D

Your videos are always so creative.

How do you get the sound to come out so good from the melodica and the lapsnare?

I also want a melodica and lapsnare now. lol

Thanks for all the kind words, guys. I wasn't too sure how many Billy Joel fans were left in this world (or uke or melodica fans, for that matter). Thanks for bombing my comment area and for watching.

For the melodica, I layered the harmony over the main melody, so together it sounds probably a little better than what a single melodica would sound like. But the snared Lapdrum, that thing is just amazing as is (I can't drum for beans!).
