Hey Rodney, couldn't get the Youtube to open...HELP!  I wanna see your video!

Open D tuning but Baby Blue was standard tuning glad you liked it. I got myself tangled up with these computer Daw's like cubase etc., but forgot just how good the Seagull sounded till I noticed I'd had about 450 hits on you tube>Pneumonia started out as a nonsense poem and ended up a song. Now I've got tangled up with 3d animation.

Rod nicely done. Love that tone. What tuning did you use? Really love these raw vids.

http://youtu.be/XVP8nj_PLsg Found a video I did a while back- just me and my Seagull and the laptop. No DAW it's as it comes- but that's what acoustic music is all about-meanwhile I'll get back to my Blender 3d animation program which is doing my brain in!

Very happy to report that I have just been taken off the wait list for Jim Lauderdale's "Exploring Your Song Writing" class at Swannanoa Gathering next week ... huzzah!!  The whole event is going to be great, but this was the one class I really wanted and it had been closed out until this morning.

Paul...it's the songs and the performance of them....not the video that is of paramount importance to me....but I will tell her that next time. Funny she has shot some with her ipad but they didn't come out as well as with the phone. Will have some pro stuff done at some point in the near future.

I am off to record a new song...which I will be back in touch with all of you about soon! Bob

Paul Stokes- Nice work! I like the flipboard style slideshow video with the song. I have done that a couple of times but never tried to co-ordinate with the beat. That is quite tedious and not as easy as it seems. Kudos.

Bob- Nice job but the video really should be taken horizontally with the Iphone. Gives more of a professional look and feel. Have your wife record that way and you might have something there.

Paul O - Cool tune. I love the DADGAD tuning but never kept a guitar in that tuning around long enough to get the hang of it. I just spent the weekend with a couple guys that love that tuning. One guy plays that tuning exclusively. Maybe I should give it another stab.

As far as using technology for getting me in my creative happy place, I find whatever works.........works. For me, or you or whoever. Art is art and some people get mine, some don't. Some people may get yours and some don't. Doesn't make it any more or less "art". Here's an example of me using technology to make a piece of art. I combined a song I wrote, a performance with my wife and myself and my limited felt pen drawing skills and rolled them all together in a video. So there are really 4 types of art in this piece.
Songwriting

Performance

Drawing

Video Production

Hope you like it.
