I work too hard, baby, that's why I look so beat. I strain every nerve in my attainments, tryin' to make my poor ends meet - Gabriel Brown, Got No Money Blues

First Video on Weeniecampbell!! Mance's "Cherry Ball Blues"

Howdy all!

I got one of those new Pocket Camcorders for my birthday...the kodak Zi8...and it takes wonderful video and decent sound too.  Here is my version of Mance's Cherry Ball Blues or Shake shake mama...played on my 1970's Harmony 6362.  The video gets a little bounce because I'm apparently tapping my feet a little too vigorously....sorry about that. Also my voice is a little rough at the beginning (spring cold) but smooths out as things proceed...notice I didn't say "improves"... :P



Cheers,

Nicely done! It's extra pressure with camera going, worse than an audience I feel.

I do think you are being a little tentative with the thumb this time round and could go for it a bit more, this would give a firmer base for the vocals too.

Happy Birthday then! :)

A very nice job for a first video, I must say!

You have a solid time and don't speed up, even with the vocals. You are getting to be some sort of a Lipscomb expert too. You do make good use of that old Harmony.

Keep up the good work
