As a non-guitarist but hailing from the age of big rock guitar, I thoroughly enjoyed the music and the video. I thought you did a fantastic job on the video editing, dude, because it is a totally separate skill set from the music making part. I have found I have a lot of creative energy in the song creation area and pretty much fizzle out when it gets to the video idea, even when I have a half-assed idea of what I imagine the video to be, so many kudos for pulling it off so well.
I would consider this a video aimed at guitarists and those who marvel at the virtuoso execution on display here with plenty of closeups on the action. I’m sure adding a storyline video track wouldn’t detract from that, and it might make watching the video more interesting for a broader audience.
And like so many others, I do find myself finding music at Youtube more often than not, video quality notwithstanding.
So my question is, how much energy and enthusiasm do you have for the video making part? First, a song with all the guitar plus vocals with a relatable video is the next step. It is so not easy! But maybe the reason is we all need some assistance putting all those elements into it unless you are one of the few who can do every part as well as you play the instruments.
And from the video creator perspective, there is no video without the music, which is probably beyond the scope of his abilities. So it is a shame that we aren’t hooking up the two talents with eHarmony accuracy yet, I don’t think the internet has risen to that level yet.
And lastly, there is the jump from being a one man/band show to being a part of a larger project that includes video, song and lyric writing including arrangement, and promotion. It isn’t natural for most everybody to be able to let go of parts of the creative process no matter how much we know it would be great when we never before had those resources available. It is tempting to try to learn to do it all nowadays, after all, the video recording quality and production is so desktop, it can be done.
And my answer is, go for it! Keep making videos, get a little better at it each time, get your stuff online, but dream of a day when you can involve other non-musicians in a video. It will never happen until you imagine it and relent to it. And it could be the day is coming soon when that musical eHarmony site becomes a reality. I think it is already being tried, just has not caught on.
