    Default Going to California

    I made this video a while ago with the goal of learning how to make a picture in picture video with a rhythm track and a melody track synched up.

    Hey Chris,

    It looks like you got the picture in picture thing under your belt. Nice video and also a nice version of GTC!! Thanks for some different ideas and positions to play them. Is that a Duff mandolin? It's a bit out of focus but looks like Duff. Sounds great!!

    Is that a Duff mandolin?
    Haha! I wish. That would be my Rover RM-75. I recently upgraded to a Northfield but I kept the Rover. It has a very dark tone.

    Beautiful. While you were shooting the zouk part you should have had the mandolin in the same location that the zouk is in during the mando part, ya know for symmetry. :-)

    Nice job, Chris. Very nice.
    Have you ever run into my old college friend, Frank Gummey, in New Smyrna Beach? Believe he is the county attorney (or was).

    He's the city attorney. Only know him from seeing his picture in the paper from time to time. Kinda looks like a buttoned down Andy Warhol with a bow-tie

    WOOOW! Absolutely fantastic! You sir Rock! Thank you for sharing.
    I'd like to know how you made the video and what equipment you used. TAB would great too if you have it. Love your version.

    Yes, I can see the differences in the headstock inlay...don't know what I was looking at. It does have a dark tone and sounds very nice as well.
