I liked it. You've got great camera presence, and you should be encouraged that you're plucking a tune so well after just two days! Keep it up
You wanted constructive criticism though, this is all I could come up with: ease off on the talking yourself down, eh? And a minor one: maybe reorient the camera so that the sun coming in through the window isn't over-exposing... or shut a curtain or something? Apart from that, you earnt this.
WOW. Thanks guys I've played it better beforehand, but I really couldn't be bothered re-recording, haha!
@whetu: Thank you. I am an actress, so I should hope I have camera presence! Otherwise my whole career is down the drain! Oh, and there's no curtains in the room I'm in, and this is the only room with computers. Hence: dodgy irritating light.
@johncaudrey: Thank you very much
@shiftysquirrel: I'm looking forward to it too! I've pretty much got it down pat, I just need to get confident enough to play it on camera!
We have something in common. For our avatar, we used a photo of the two of us sitting on an overlook in Maui two days after we got our first ukes. It was Ron's birthday and some musician friends we were traveling with had shown me (Jeanne) how to pick out "Happy Birthday" earlier that morning. We have a video of it. The look on Ron's face when he realized what I was playing was priceless, really funny and surprised that I was able to play anything at all at that point. That was last February so we're coming up on one year since we first started to play. It took us until this past December to post our first vid on YouTube.
Good for you for jumping right into it and posting after only two days. You did great! We're looking forward to seeing what you do next!
