Title: James Clem on YouTube
Post by: Big River on May 16, 2008, 03:02:29 PM
Hello Everyone, I ran across this wonderful site recently and thought I would give a plug for myself. I am an acoustic blues singer/guitarist based in Portland, Oregon. I posted six good quality videos on YouTube last week that I hope you can check out sometime. It is a mix of different styles...a Barbeque Bob, Lonnie Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins and the obliqatory Robert Johnson. Even a couple of songs on my National Ukulele! I am bad at links, but try www.youtube.com/mrbissonet. They should come up or throw my name in the search. You can also view my My Space Music page or website. Love your site (I've got  alot of catching up to do).
Thank you, James Clem

Welcome James, glad you found us.

I haven't checked your myspace site yet, but I really enjoyed the YouTube videos, nice work! You're not kidding when you say good quality videos, I must say those are some of the more slickly produced youtube videos I've seen, really a nice job.  Maybe you could tell us a little about the equipment you used to make both the audio and video on those clips?  Also, I had not heard a National wood bodied Uke before -- a very good sounding uke.

Glad you liked the videos. I hired someone to do them with the intent to get a little promotion and maybe put them together as a DVD to sell at my gigs.
The microphones are an AKG Perception 100 large diaphram condenser for the vocals and an AKG C1000s small diaphram condenser for the instruments. The latter works well for the resonator guitar.
The National Uke is a newer koa bodied instrument. It plays plays and sounds really nice. National is really making some great instruments nowadays. The National Tricone dates from 1932 and The Gibson L-OO is from around 1938 or '39 (no serial number). Thanks for checking those out. Regards, James Clem
