I started developing a "Tips and Tricks" for my fingerstyle guitar tabs a while back, and kept putting off finishing it, but with a bit of spare time over the holidays I knuckled down and got it done, yah!
Since slowly re-publishing my tabs in (the even more beautiful latest version) Musescore format and releasing them on Patreon, I knew that I needed a little primer video to get everyone started. While the tabs stand alone, and there is always the video I record of me playing them, there are a few tips and tricks I wanted to talk about.
Making videos like these, by yourself, is a big undertaking. I reckon around 15 hours from start to finish for this little 10 minute video. All those professional people out there, making amazing looking courses and tutorials - huge huge effort, well done. I like making videos, but wow, this sort of video, just so much work.
I've also transcribed it, with tab bits, for people who prefer to read than watch a video. Yah!
Nothing is new under the sun, but maybe there was something in here you'd never thought about!
I'm never happy with the end result when I record, well, any video, I can pick so many faults in them, but each time I make a video it's a little better than the last one. If I keep going, one day I might be good at it. But for now, it's about looking after my Patreons, and this was something I really wanted them to have access to.
Go have a look! Enjoy! Here is the Transcript and watch the video below:
