This is really cool, Todd! It really gives a cool view of your playing. I first saw this in action on Daryl Hall's web show "Live From Daryl's House". Daryl's guitarist Paul Pesco uses it & it looks so amazing! Looking forward to seeing your's in action!

Live From Daryl's House

If interested, the above link is to the Booker T. Jones episode. There is a menu where you can select a particular part/song of the show & he uses the camera on Green Onions as well as other songs. He has used it in other songs & the other episodes as well.

I also loved Booker's explanation of the Hammond B3. smile.gif

Congrats Todd! The view that you get is really helpful to see you right hand movement, the synchronization between both hands and also how you mute the strings that you are not using.

Thanks! I didn't even realize I was capturing a technique demo at the time. I was just playing to demo that camera, but you are so right. After watching it and seeing the response, I realize that the angle is quite educational and provides a better look at the picking hand than the regular straight on view. Going to use this in lessons!
