So for over a year now we’ve been doing videos of great players who come in on a regular basis – seems like the perfect way to archive a lot of the cool guitars that come in and also showcase the talent of our friends. But occasionally we get requests for just sound samples. I’ve come to believe that no one wants to hear samples anymore – that if there’s nothing to look at people online just move along to the next thing. But maybe I’m wrong.
Since those of you who read this blog represent some of the most avid consumers of online classical guitar content, maybe you can tell me if I’m wrong to assume that you want videos over audio. What if the audio samples were better quality than the audio on the videos – would that make a difference?
I’ve found that most players are not as comfortable in front of a camera as they are in front of a microphone – and I totally understand that – so maybe we’d even have some better performances without the video?
Let me know.
Here’s a video of Yury Nugmanov playing a great Blochinger ‘Llobet’ model.
