tell me what YOU think of this

Post by ghosstt » Fri Jul 25, 2008 2:40 pm

Well, I was bored and was playing some guitar, so I decided to capture some footage of me playing. I did a cool camera angle with my webcam(to make things a bit different) The only reason I'm really asking is because I need to know if the camera angle is annoying or anything. At some points it seems obnoxious. Suggestions for other cool angles too please!

here is the setlist btw:

0.00- Dammit(Blink 182)
2.00- Halo 2 Theme Song
1.20- Improv
1.30- Sweet Child O' Mine Intro(Guns N Roses)
2.07- Chord Improv
2.30- Good Riddance(Green Day)
2.59- Wonderful tonight (Eric Clapton)
3.22- Stay Together For The Kids(Blink 182)
4.00- Simple Man (Lynrd Skynrd)
4.25- Improv
4.34- Tears In Heaven(Eric Clapton)
5.00- Teenagers(My Chemical Romance)
5.25- Blues Progression
5.42- Improv
5.54- Crazy Train Intro Improv
6.05- Crazy Train(Ozzy)
6.40- Enter Sandman

Well..... the video stopped at tears in heaven for me. Honestly I don't mind it at all. Actually, for most of it I was sitting here wanting more! Keep up the good work.

As for the camera angle, I didn't mind it. It was a bit refreshing, however it lacked a lot of emotion. When I watch someone play a song, or I play a song it is nothing without emotion. You need to move. You need to close your eyes. You need to feel what the song is trying to say. It seemed like with the guitar fixed in one spot it was more robotic and awkward. Maybe mount the camera on the headstock? I don't know, I haven't tried anything like that.

Thanks! About the camera, it is mounted on the headstock. And I was sitting down so there wasn't much moving.
