    Here I am as a member of a concentration camp orchestra. The movie is "Grey Zone". The piece - "Roses from the South" by J. Strauss.

    Jim,
    I especially like your version of "Cold Frosty Morning." #I play that one fairly often at old-timey jams, but it sounds nothing like that. #Is it your own arrangement?

    It's based off a clawhammer banjo arrangement I play from listening to Merle Watson 25 years ago. Something I taped of Doc and Merle back in the early 80's off of public radio. I think as most fiddle tunes go, there are variations floating about. Local frailing banjo player I've picked with occasionally plays his arrangment pretty close to that.

    Now Bela Fleck recorded Cold Frosty Morning years ago on his album Crossing the Tracks--his arrangment is something totally different.

    Okay, I think I got this figgered out...

    I had been thinking we needed to update the "Post A Picture of Yourself" thread anyway and now with this You Tube phenom we can have videos - wheeee!

    So here's one of me playing with Bertha (Nations) & Otis Whitesides on the open mic at the Chilliwack Bluegrass Festival a couple of weeks ago. #Story goes they were looking for some backup musicians and asked me to play with them. #I was honored as Bertha is one of the "First Family" of bluegrass here in the Northwest and a fixture of the Darrington Bluegrass Festival. #

    Anyway, you'll have to excuse my attire as I was camping in the heat and humidity and really never expected to be on stage.

    John and mandopete: great clips! It is refreshing to see the amount of talent that exists here at the cafe.

    And it again goes to show how great a resource youtube is.

    Bill:

    Thanks! We had a great time filming it... Kinda nervous, but I thought we played a good show with relatively few mistakes.

    Checkout the Skinner Family. The very young boy on mandolin has to stand on a box to get high enough for the single mic, but he picks pretty tall.

    Hi,
    Please help me. I have the video recorded onto a kodak digital camera. I downloaded the video on a program for kodak. I tried downloading the video directly onto windows movie maker(can't do it for some reason). I tried downloading with youtube.I have high speed internet and the download took an hour and it still failed. How do you guys download to youtube with just a digital camera. I tried to figure it out. I'm about to scream.

    Please if you can explain it v e r y simply. Step by step for a dummy like me. I hate to admit it but I'm giving up for now.
    I wandered again to my home in the mountains....

    Bobbie , look at the size of your file , youtube accept file <100MB , lenght <10minutes. just an idea.

    Mandopete , you're right that sound like Jessamyn's reel.

    Bobbie, Jean's advice should be your first check. You cannot upload a file to YouTube if it is too large (100MB), or longer than 10 minutes.

    The reason why you cannot open the file in Windows Movie Maker is because your Kodak camera records in a video format called QuickTime (the video file extention is probably .mov right?). In order to view and edit the file, you need to use a Quicktime compatible software, typically the paying "Pro" version of Quicktime Player (www.apple.com/quicktime).

    At the moment, your video is very likely either to big or to long. You need to edit it or compress it before you can upload it to YouTube, or re-record it in smaller chunks... Before you get additional software, have a read in the video section of the Kodak Software manual, there might well be a feature to edit the video.

    Hope this helps, ask here or PM if you need more help.

    Germain
