HARMONICA SOUNDBITES - Daily Videos in January

Post by Brendan » Sat Jan 02, 2021 4:19 pm

Happy New Year my Friends... Let's hope it turns out to be!

Like most of you I'm sure, occasionally I've idly scrolled through the zany world of TikTok videos! I was intrigued to try out the ultra-short video format myself, to see what I could meaningfully play on the harmonica in 15 seconds or less...

I signed up yesterday, and decided to give myself the task of doing one TikTok video per day in January, along with uploading it to Instagram (which I've also just joined). Plus a slightly longer one for YouTube and, for suitable pieces, an extended Teaching Version for those interested to learn more about the tune and harmonica/effects I'm using.

Here's the first in the Series:

(Links to the harmonica and the in-depth Vimeo Teaching Version are in the Description below the video).

If you feel like suggesting some ideas for future videos in this series, please do! I'll try to include them if possible.

Oops! A typical New Year's Resolution that didn't go the distance... :-( After a fiery start, I got distracted by workshop projects again!

I'm not good at multi-tasking between recording music/videos and tech Rn'D: both of them are very time-hungry and tend to consume all my available brain cells while I'm in the zone.

The workshop stuff has a deadline for later this week, and I hope to get back to the Harmonica Soundbites after that. In the meantime, here's the most recent one, a bluesy riff loop thing:
