Thought I'd try something different today. Make another YT vid, but this time with my old worn out IPad. Been messing with "Jaybird..." for the past couple of days, ever since I saw Peggy's turtledove video. That vid sure had an awful lot of other birds in it including a bluejay or two.

The few opinions added need not to be taken too seriously.

Nice video, Rich! I liked the bouncy feel you were getting with the strum machine...I like the slow pace you know that's just how I am. Very nice video. keep 'em comin'!

I need to edit that vid again. There was a lot of fumble around time in there I thought was edited out.

Here we go ridin' the Learning Curve, Learning Curve, Learning Curve...

It was a super video...leave it and next time you can edit the next video'll get all burned out if you fuss over it too Great job. As Dwight Diller always says...Just keep putting one foot in front of the other...we don't have to walk backwards to get ahead (I added that last

Seems that you did a great job of demonstrating how you learn tunes..broken heart

I got a big kick out of your video.   Great job.   That was a lot of fun.  Thanks for posting!

I heard elements of "Shove that Pig's Foot further into the fire" and I can play that tune.

I'm going to play along with you on your video and see what happenssurprise

That's the biggest compliment anybody can play along with them.

Well now that I watch that vid again it's pretty rough. I'm tempted to just delete the dang thing. I did it mostly to fool around and see what could be done with an old iPad. Then Peggy's grandson made a great YT video a few days ago showing how to edit a video and I thought, what the heck, that might also be fun to try. The technology is now around for everyday folks like us to fool around with. And, if an 82 year old duffer like me can do it, so can a lot of others. This kind of thing may just turn out to be the best way for OT music lovers to stay connected when we're spread out all over the country. Besides, people makin' and sharing vids about playing OT music has got to be better than some of the other dopey vids you can find on YT.

I hope you leave it up...there's more OT videos that need to be made. gotta move on.

That was a very nice video, I slow down with YouTube also when possible. But I cannot just play along and hear both : myself and the tune being played, unless I mute my violin, or raise the volume of my pc. My violin is rather loud.

But it's catchy tune and I wish it was not 5 in the morning here.
