Somehow I end up making bass videos whenever I'm on holiday... Playing around with the loop pedal on a janek gwizdala tune. Didn't really have a plan for the end, and it shows!

Hi Potatoes

Sounds real nice. I like the sound of those chords. I can see why you prefer 5 strings now. You've given me some impetus to try doing something on my looper. Prior warning, it won,t be as lyrical as yours. Can we hear you on Fender one of these days?

Hey everyone, got some recording gear recently so finally got round to recording a simple little song I wrote on harmonics (mainly)

Here's a couple of rough videos from a fun wedding I played recently.

Sounds good..... We took some footage at a wedding the other week and I've offered to play around with it and get it 'you tube' ready. I think the file is too big and drummer can't email it because of the size.
I might have to give him a memory stick so he can load it onto there for me to play around with.

Enjoyed that, Steve. Shame about the camera angle, but good footage of your horn player. Nice space given to the drums towards the end of MS.

Thanks. Would be great to see your vid!
I didn't do these videos but I know that getting them into youtube can be a real pain.
About 6 months ago I found some free video convertor software that's fantastic at easily changing video formats and downsizing the resolution etc.
Well worth checking out; http://www.freemake.com/

Glad you enjoyed it Pablo. I think the band leader filmed it just for reference so I don't think he was too worried about the angle.
It's good listening back and seeing what works and what doesn't.

thanks for that link... I did have some software on my old computer that did the trick.
My old band in Chch did a video (handy-cam on a tripod) a few years ago and when I downloaded the files onto the computer they were about 1.2gig each! but was able to 'cut' them into individual songs.... I think my Macbook has a good program.... will talk to Drummer at Fridays gig to see if he can get the footage to me. might have to give him a memory stick to put it on - I'll have to google your band, because you're on the shore too.

Not exactly a Youtube clip of any sorts, but this is a clip that i made/recorded a little while ago. I had recently got a copy of Ableton and was figuring out how to record through a audio interface + how to use SoundCloud to post music. I have done proper/much better quality recordings since then, but however, this is a somewhat rough shortened re-interpretation of a great Victor Wooten song lol

Yeah I think most macs come with good editing software.
I'm just a fill-in for http://www.thebuskers.co.nz . Fun band to play with. The drummer on the videos is a fill-in too.

My first contribution to the BPNZ YouTube thread. Was from our 10th anniversary show at the Powerstation last year... much fun.

I used to be quite tunnel vision when it came to funk and thought that nothing really could beat a Stingray, and I still think they are tops. But every now and then there can be a craving to have another weapon in the arsenal. I already had a Fender Jazz, but the P-bass was the last to complete my set. No more basses.

So you can hear the P growl in this little number.

Here's my band, we just shot this and we're about to move to London. Unfortunately our drummer isn't coming with us, anyone know any good drummers in London?
