Default Still Can't See

So it seems ironic that the best performances I have with Can't You See are in situations where you can't see. In this case here, neither could I. A place we play at regularly put in a really cool stage outside, but they forgot to add lighting. I was trying to play in the light on my music stand so I could kind of see what I was doing.

I had a few misses since I could barely see the fretboard, but it was still great fun!

I play this song now where I use the major pents for the first solo and the minor pents for the second. Turns out to be a cool way to switch it up.

Wow. Really enjoyed. What were you recording the sound with?

Thanks you guys! It was nice to play on a stage and not be jammed into a corner. I forgot what it was like . After a while I started taking advantage and moving around. Then it got dark and I had to hang out in the bit of light from my music stand light.

Sound and video were recorded with my Canon HD camcorder. The sound is a bit thin. If I had time and was motivated, I'd add the audio I record straight out of the mixer to the video.

Your videos are always good, the audio & video come out so clear. It sounds like you are using a really expensive & professional piece of recording equipment (maybe it is).

Thanks. The camera isn't anything special...this is it..it's a Canon VIXIA R500:



It takes SD memory cards, so I got a 128 GB card. Each performance takes about 20 GB. I dump them onto a hard drive I have...occasionally they go up on youtube.

When I can, I set it up on a tripod and hit record before each set. I'm using the internal mic...if I got an external mic that would improve things, but I don't want to make it too complicated. I got a larger extra battery because the battery it came with would barely go 2 hours. I get 2 sets off the larger battery and the last set on the original smaller battery.

This is far from a pro setup...goes to show you how far this technology has come. I've seen video that Mouse did that was even better than what I get with my camera...the video was taken with an iPhone!!

Go squid!!! Do you do the same solo everytime there or thereabouts or do you improvise ?
The solo after the first verse was just perfect fitted the tune like a glove (copyright Ace Ventura) great stuff bud .
