While at the Port Townsend Ukulele Festival last weekend, I took a wonderful class by Danielle Ate The Sandwich on tips for recording for YouTube.
All of her advice was good and straight-forward and just what I needed. The process I’d developed for recording myself was certainly quite an affair and at sometimes a slog that would leave me exhausted and frustrated at the end. Seeing how easy it was to make decent video with even just a phone inspired me to find an open spot on the Fort Worden campus and make a video.
It’s the first piece I ever learned, over a decade ago. I’m pretty pleased with the result, and I look forward to making some more impromptu videos.
For those who’ve asked for it, here’s the tab: September in the Rain (Ukulele Tab). It’s not my arrangement – it’s based on the intro to the full song that I played in a group a long time ago that I reconstructed from memory.
