Acadia National Park, Vermont Mountains and a Ride on the Hudson River

  Home movies shot on a fun "road trip" with music from one of my Albums ....  We enjoyed all the hiking on that trip!  The album, Acoustic Guitar Solos, was released in 2021.      #music #countrymusic #musicians #musica #musicislife #musiciansofinstagram #martinguitars #practicemakesperfect #acousticmusic #livemusic #guitarsofinstagram #guitarsarebetter #guitarplayer #guitarist #guitars #guitarsolo #guitar Acadia Video on YouTube

Music Compositional Methods (SUFV-11)

  Welcome to my series on music compositional methods (SUFV-11).   In this video, I re-recorded the guitar, using the same chords as the first recording. The melody line, played on Irish Electric Guitar, was initially my improvised voice. The base guitar is the chord track playing, with the chord symbols arpeggiated.    #composition #digitalaudioworkstation #improvisation #stratocaster #voice #cubase #cubase12 YouTube Video of SUFV-11

Music Compositional Methods

  Welcome to my series on music compositional methods.  I've always been a big fan of spontaneous music creation.  This is the new process using Steinberg CUBASE 12:   Improvise with a Stratocaster and voice    Creating a CHORD TRACK (guitar audio converted to chord symbols)   Convert CHORD TRACK to MIDI and edit chord lengths      Convert voice audio to MIDI    Edit voice MIDI using standard music notation   Select instrumentation for CHORD TRACK MIDI   Select instrumentation for voice MIDI   Resolve final audio MIX requirements (EQ, Volume, etc.)   Import Video and synch with production files    OUTPUT Audio File and Video File   Correct Video orientation (landscape to portrait) Thus, with one pass, a song is created.  The time to do the above edits and processing is approximately 1-2 hours.   Here's the final product (video with studio grade audio) link on  YOUTUBE

Shenandoah Mountain and U.S. East Coastline Tour Videos on YouTube with HatchBatch Singles in 2022

HatchBatch is on YouTube!  I've been releasing "singles" on Spotify as the artist "HatchBatch" in 2022.  I thought I would merge that soundtrack with some amateur video I shot during our tour of the Shenandoah mountain and U.S. eastern coastline of the United States in 2021. Link to Video on YouTube
