Is your video HD? How do you mix the sound, as your vocals are crystal clear.
My video and audio are from a Flip Ultra HD camera. I load the video from the camera to my computer and upload to YouTube without any video or audio manipulation. For my taste the audio is fine without any enhancement or normalization.
The Flip Ultra HD camera has an option to upload directly from the camera to YouTube but both the audio and video seem to be compressed and the quality suffers greatly. I've found that uploading the raw file results in the best audio and video quality.
Nice performance and singing Bill. Your video qualities are superb too!
I am currently uploading all of my written piano sheets onto my blog to make things easier. I also have written out a few more sheets. All free check it out if you want Any questions, PM me
Elssa - nice job on Winter Wonderland - I'm going to go to school on your chords because I've had some trouble getting my ear around them Cathy
Thanks, I'm using some "insert chords" here (my own arrangement) along with a swing/stride style. Another good one for that is "Let It Snow". Loved your Joy to the World - great chords and bass line. Care to swap "chord secrets" sometime?
Hi Carl: Thanks for your help. I had put the embed code instead of URL by accident for YouTube.. I'm a little technically challenged.
I noticed you touching the screen from time to time- are you changing the sound?
Yes, the twinkly bells sound is my Roland KR-7 Bells/Strings setting. I need to change screens to get to it

ladypayne - that was a lush White Christmas, and you played it well.
Bill - very nice. I liked the accompaniment, and your voice just kind of caresses the song. As for "surprising" voicings on my Joy to the World - well, yes, to me, too I just used whatever inversion of the 7(th) chords I happened to be near Thanks for the compliments

Elssa: Nice "Carol of the Bells." I will try some what I saw you do there! THanks!
Thanks, Angelo! I had a lot of fun with it. BTW, these are all my own arrangements, and I teach all the "tricks" & techniques in my new video, Elssa's Holiday Songs Video (includes pdf lead sheets for Carol of the Bells and O Holy Night).
