Open Mic Videos

Post by Omegaman » Sat Jun 17, 2017 11:52 am

Figured since I posted a few in another thread because Cracks wanted more.... I would start a thread here for us to post any videos.
Here's one from a recent set at an open mic. Planning on hitting a few more.

I don't get much chance to write originals these days, or even record much, save for demos for a CD.

Pretty good, but you'd get bonus points if you could moon walk while playing Moondance. :)

Good one. You should sing some of the song though. You have a nice easy voice that goes good with the backing tracks and the sax.

Doing a mix of vocals and instrumentals to keep it varied.

This one is not me performing, but my 2nd delve into iMovie.

I've been doing open mic audio recordings for a few months (every other month about) at a local venue. The main audio was recorded with my Zoom H6, all DI/split before going to the board. What you hear in the video has some camera audio mixed in since I've decided that audio that's too clean for a live video seems just a little off.

Great original Ed. Nice video too. That setting is so Texas it almost looks fake. Nice!

Just for the record, I'm not Ed, whose song/performance is in the video. I just did the recording!

And, yes, the place where the open mic is held is pretty much all Texas, all the time. Stop in almost any Thursday night if you are in the area!

That pretty much describes the attitude of everyone in Texas all the way from Brownsville to Amarillo. :roll: They pretty much forget Texas is no longer a republic but is a state inside the US of A. :o

I was stationed just outside Lubbock while in the military. Only place I've ever been where it can rain mud, dust storms can be in the weather forecast and a preacher can get away with wearing twin six guns while preaching a sermon.

I completely understand why Mac Davis wrote "Texas In My Rear View Mirror". :music:
