Subject: Mudcatters on YouTube
From: GUEST,Bob Ryszkiewicz
Date: 06 Apr 08 - 02:59 PM

As many of you who have read my posts know; I've sorta embraced/hugged technology. It's good to see so many 'catters have "done the MySpace thang" as it will get your music heard around the world. So, me being the "Fun Guy" you all know and Love(O.K. O.K. maybe SOME of you.LOL) Nobody? Sniff..., Uh, where was I? Yeah, so I'm trying YouTube to see what happens...You can see my vid right here, and I decided to make it a bit of a "Promo" type of thing...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-emHd3POUrA
The stats? As far as I know, vids are being uploaded at the rate of 10 HOURS of video PER SECOND! Will you get seen? Undoubtedly. It's a different world when you compare it to MySpace. Kind of like "the wild west". But, nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say.

So, are Mudcatters interested? Have any of you besides me, Penny Lang, and Noah Zacharin tried it? Is there a future for Folk Music on YouTube?

There's a 5 star rating system. So far, 1 star for me by somebody, But ONE DAY, 5-STARS FOR SURE! LOL But hey, that's not bad for a speck in a sea of videos...And it HAS been only a little over 2 weeks.

The good news. I met this guy by the name of Lionel Neykov who got FEATURED by YouTube.The result? In excess of 240,000 views. That translated to 7522 plays IN ONE DAY on MySpace. I know another group with over 500,000 views which would be a lot of Folk Music if YOU got there...

This is getting to be Mudcat's longest initial post, but you get the idea...

Cameras ready? Good Luck to All...bob

p.s. I just crossed the 10,000+ Friends milestone on MySpace...So it DOES work...

Relatively simple.

However, adding a sound file to Myspace seems a bit tricky needing fiddling with the dreaded HTML -does anyone know if there's an easy way to do it?

Tell you how I did it. I wanted to be on MySpace, I had NO computer. Used to go to the library to use theirs. Then found friends with computers, asked 1000 questions and was still struggling. So I had the friends help me do the uploading. watched them. and then got a computer and did the YouTube video by myself with the manual in one hand and the other hand on the keyboard.
If you goof it, not much will happen. It just won't work...

The YouTube thing can be done the same way. 1/Get or borrow a digital camera w/video & that can record sound. 2/ Do yo thang. 3/Find a friend that knows the tech side of computers, and create a free account on YouTube and upload your vid. The YouTube site tells you all you need to know. Easy...Where there's a will, there's a way...

Soggy Bottom Boys: Once you find somebody to do the tech stuff, you can access your site from any internet cafe' or most libraries...And you're on a computer now to be able to post, Sooo? Being in front of 1.6 Billion people might change things for you...bob

Thanks to all, and with all those videos, looks like the Flying Chaucers are the "Cecil B. DeMilles" of YouTube when it comes to Mudcatters uploading videos.

But this is a good thing because it lets people around the world see authentic Folk Music(and other types of music as well) being performed. Good Show...bob

Bob, I have to ask a few questions.

first of all, you have never posted other than as a GUEST, so why all this Mudcatter hugging bonhomie ? Have you never considered becoming a member ?

secondly, the Youtube thing has been going for years on Mudcat.

input "Youtube" into the filter box at the top, set to say, 3 years, and see what comes up.

thirdly, is your video supposed to be some kind of joke ?

I watched it expecting to see some kind of folk music content, and to put it (very) mildly, was disappointed . You really think this is doing folk music any favours ?

From: GUEST,Bob Ryszkiewicz
Date: 07 Apr 08 - 08:16 PM

Well Murray, it goes like this...A long time ago, just after the earth cooled(1966) I began to play guitar in the Coffeehouses of Rhode Island, Boston, Connecticut, etc. When I came to Canada in 1967, one of the first places I visited was The Yellow Door Coffeehouse in Montreal. There, I met people from around the world who played Folk Music. All the traditional stuff from Ireland, England, etc.
There used to be a Hoot on Sundays where everybody got to do 3 songs. So there was EVERYTHING. You'd get 2 sisters from Ireland singing lullabies, every form of Folk Artist, Comics, Bluesmen like me, banjos, dulcimers, etc. So, I played the blues and did some folk songs in my sets.

So I grew up with people who more or less let you "do your thing", as we used to say...

About a year or so ago, I Googled my name, and lo and behold, Mudcat came up. "What's that?" I asked myself. Somebody named bobad had entered my name on a thread called "l
Little Known 60's Folk Singers"! "Gee", I said to myself," Isn't that wild to be remembered after so many years?
I barely new what "thread" meant, as I was new to computers. But, I started to post, adding my memories. At the same time I had begun to write music for Films, an example of which is what you see on YouTube as "The Soul Eater"...I also had built a studio and was Marketing my stuff around the world...
Turns out, I knew a few people on Mudcat, which led me play some guitar for Bruce Murdoch at the Branches and Roots Festival in Ormstown, Quebec. By that time I met more great Mudcatters, like Beer(Adrien), who was running the festival...Many more while there, and even more at Bruce's Montreal Concert. I made some friends...

So, in the spirit of The Yellow Door, and all of the above, for me, music was never about boundaries. I grew up with Folk and so I support it whenever I can. I never really considered myself a "Folk" Artist, but got labeled as such after doing hundereds of shows in Coffeehouse, Folk Clubs, Concerts, etc. It's sort of like when you see a seagull in with the pigeons, they're all birds looking for food..

I've got 10,000+ Friends on MySpace, working in and on my studio, on Mudcat as much as I can, and I get requests to join blogs, groups, "review my songs", "listen to my band", "check me out" "Can you connect me with" ALL THE TIME...
So, there is only so much I can do, and so, for me "Guest" status works just fine...
I work 12-15 hours a day on my projects...

I did enter YouTube on Mudcat by the way, to see if it had been done before. Nothing came up, so I thought I was safe. Didn't do the "go back three years" thing though...

And so it is, as you see in the world, so many different kinds of people and music all
out there in cyberspace. I listen to as much DIFFERENT kinds of music as I can, Tabla players, Synth guys, Indian, African, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Rap...Everything. I find it makes me a better MUSICIAN for having done so.

So for all the purists, if your world is limited to Folk Music, just turn the page...

I think if you start to ask Mudcatters what they listen to, I think you might be surprised to see it's not ALL about Folk, just good music. While you might not listen to, or respect Rap, there is a lot of Art in it, not all of it, but glimmers of brilliance pop up. Check Missy Elliot, Akon for Hip-Hop.

The one thing that saddens me about Mudcat, is that I see so many threads degenerate into petty arguments, bickering, one-upmanship, trickery, etc. You would think that people would rise above, but alas, Mudcat becomes a mirror as to what is going on in the world. So, what I do, is look for the good. and, there are MANY GOOD things about Mudcat. We have been given this incredible tool of the internet and computers, I prefer to use it to accomplish positive things...Like supporting Folk music, even when what I'm playing, at the moment, something that is not Folk. And doing that while fondly remembering the openness and dreams of the 60's and The Yellow Door...
Hope that answers your questions...

Respect to All...

Peace & Blessings...bob

Hay Bob, I remember Bobad asking about you and what followed on that great thread as started by a "Guest" and now is up to 770 hits since 2004. My it seems as if that thread just started yesterday. Time does fly when it's fun. Hope you are well and came make it out to the new festival I've started. A bit off the subject at hand, but then not really. I have been painting for the past 2/3 hours and I just finished listening to just about every song that Bruce has recorded. Made my work pass a lot faster listening to music one enjoys. I'm now listening to another great singer song writer who has been around since Bruce wore cowboy boots. His big commercial hit was "Linda Put the Coffee On". I'm speaking of a chap from Hamilton by the name of Ray Materick. Know him by any chance?

Back to Ray.

Good luck, Don

Don: The music on my YouTube vid is NOT Folk. It is what I'm doing currently. My ROOTS are in Folk and I went off in other directions. They want to label you, so on MySpace I called it Rock, Blues, Country. When I gave it to eMusic, they surprised me by listing me under Jazz/Blues. I get compared to Ken Nordine, and Leonard Cohen, who started with Poetry & Folk and became LEONARD COHEN. His own unique enigma, if you will... Is that Rock, Folk, Spoken Word, Poetry, Melodramatic Popular Song, etc? He's gone way past labels and is his own entity.

What I was hoping was that Mudcatters would link up, or be aware of each other on YouTube. For me, it's just another way of reaching out and keeping the music alive.

I personally find it interesting when an artist stretches his capabilities and tries new things. I find it invigorating...

I did try to play some Blues in an Irish Pub one time(An "Open" Stage, sadly not a MENTALLY open stage), and heard "oh, no" after about 4 seconds...For some who are used to hearing the rhythm of McNamara's Band, blues changes were quite a shock. They wanted dunta dunta dunta dunta...If you go off that, they just don't want to hear it...Which is O.K and is their choice. I got faked out by the invitation of what is normally considered an "Open Stage..."

Anyways, Thanks for checking out the thread, and for the kind words...All the best...bob

Subject: MacBook, iMovie, and YouTube - great for promo
From: Genie
Date: 09 Apr 08 - 04:38 PM

Thanks for starting this thread, Bob. The lightbulb just went off over my head, when it should've as soon as I got my new MacBook.

I started playing around with a new iMac a few months ago, just aiming the screen at myself and at anyone else I wanted to video and going to iMovie and hitting "Capture from camera."
The screen has a built-in camera and you can record the sound from the built-in microphone or from an external mic.   Using the built-in camera and mic, I found that I could capture excellent videos -- good picture and sound too.   (You can tweak both of those later if you want, but it's often not necessary.   Just try not to have the camera too close to your subject - but that's often true with most any camera.)   
Since I got the small, portable version, a new MacBook, I've been making lots of videos, both for research purposes and for recording music shows. I recently video'd workshops and the Sat. night concert at Singtime Frolics here in Oregon.   I'm in process of putting these on DVD.

Now here's where I should say, "Duh!!!"
I've been thinking I could use my own video'd shows or clips from them to make promo videos and/or to post at my own website when I get one set up.
Although I watch stuff on YouTube a lot, it never dawned on me that I could skip the DVDs and skip the website and post stuff directly on YouTube!!

I may or may not want to put just anything on YouTube - especially my own songs that haven't been duly registered with the LOC Copyright office yet - but it sure would make it cheap (well, aside from the $1100+ I spent on the laptop) to let prospective clients hear an see samples of my music and performances.

Of course, next time I record one of my own full-hour programs, I must remember to set the "Sound preferences" up right so it won't turn out to be a silent flic like the St. Patrick's Day party I recorded.   LOL

Hi Genie: Sounds like you're on your way. I suggest you create a MySpace(musician account/player+video) presence as well. If you already have an account, send me a req and I'll add you. I think I'm on something like 25 websites around the world. Once the ball starts rolling...Well, you know...

The Mac gives you some incredible tools with iMovie. I suggest using '06. If you have '08, you can get the downgrade. A little Promo never hurt. I thought that because I have an unusual name, and was really only a speck in a sea of videos, that preparing the vid in the way that I did was the way to go. Give 'em a sample song and some info...

I've been a Director of Marketing for several organizations, so I believe being pro-active has it's rewards. Some Mudcatters prefer a more conservative approach.

As you can see from my previous post, getting featured gets you on the world stage...

Best wishes. Thanks for stopping by...bob

Re iMovie, are you saying the '06 version is better than the '08 version?   How so?

I know them as Jackie Colemans and Pigtown. Glad you liked them - here's another couple - Humours of Tulla and the Glass of beer.

The Boat Band were having a friendly acoustic gig in our local, the Greyhound in Penkhull, and our friend Glyn Chapman came along with a video camera. He just put up the videos of four songs we did on #Youtube. So here you go...you can hear the Jenny Lind Polka, Les Flammes d'Enfer, the Bosco Stop and Bosco Blues . Enjoy (hopefully)

Not counting the B/S threads, there are 87 Youtube threads on Mudcat - one of which has the exact title of this one; Mudcatters on YouTube. So the subject has been/and is discussed here.

There are lots of Mudcatters with Youtube videos. I've posted some. Here's my favorite but a quick search on my name will show a list of 30+ clips.

Youtube is a good outlet for music, folk or other.

I thought this all seemed strangely familiar.... ...but I have reached an age where I tend to repeat myself, not to mention becoming repetitive from time to time, and also saying the same thing more than once.
