Welcome to the Acoustic Guitar Community.
THIS IS NOT AN INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO! This is the last cut on the Derek & The Dominos "Layla" album and often overlooked because of the towering hits found elsewhere on the album.

Thanks for the compliment on my video. The shoot took place in upstate NY in the Catskill mountains. A friend had a log cabin there and my wife and I were invited for a weekend. Since both myself and my friend were videographers I asked if we could use the house as a backdrop for a couple of songs. Our space was limited in the car so I only brought the bare necessities to do a shoot. It was done with two cameras, one stationary, one mobile and some auxiliary lighting. Any effects were added in post production.
The sound to these ears is not that great. At the time I used the only mic's I had which were cheap Radio Shaft ones and one of their small 3 channel mixers. The mixer signal was fed into the stationary camera for the most robust sound possible. But the quality of the mic's shows when the audio is heard through decent speakers. And for some reason when I transfered the files in/out of the computer the guitar sounded rather "brittle". I didn't have time back then to tweak it so it wound up as you now hear it.
So yes, I was a professional videographer and ran my own business for 10 years. My business was primarily events (weddings, bar mitzvah's, etc.) and the occasional fun video like this one. Unfortunately there was no $ to be made shooting bands (I tried, believe me) so the events put the food on the table.
Relocation led to the end of the video business because it is not one where you can hang out a shingle and start a revenue stream right away. I really didn't want to all of the leg work (meeting DJ's, event planners, function hall managers) needed to make contacts all over again and then struggle for several months until the revenue started to flow,
I still have some of my video gear and used it to shoot the "Molly McGee" video on my page as well. A co-worker had a band and wanted to shoot a video. That was my last fun project that could have been better but time and $ trumped quality and it wound up as you see it.
Great video Terry...that's fancy editing or you have three cameras and slow mo! Do you do video for a living? Sound is great too.
