1) All video submissions must be made through youtube. Click here to sign up for a free youtube account.
2.) Videos must be of you drumming on a practice pad or snare drum. If playing on a practice pad, please use
the hard side of the pad (if available) so that we can better hear your sound quality.
3.) Please wear a dark colored shirt and use white stick tape. This will make your sticks much more visible in the video.
4.) When posting your video in the forum, simply enclose the youtube URL 11-digit code in the post as follows:
5.) Use a descriptive title with the name of the exercise or musical piece you are playing.
Code: Select all
6.) In the body of your post, include a brief description of the video and what specific advice (if any) you would like to receive.
6.) Expect to get critiqued. It is the purpose of this forum. Be humble. Do not take anything personally.
7.) Please do a little bit of video editing to clean up your video clip. Windows Movie Maker is super easy to use.
Also, if you want to help spread the word about this site, you can add this image to the end of your video:
Right click the image and choose 'save as' to download to your computer. Then in movie maker, import pictures and
drag this image to the end of your video.
Video Critiquing Guidelines
1.) If submitting a critique, please please PLEASE only post constructive criticism. Any 'you suck' type posts will be deleted.
If you are a repeat offender you will probably get banned. Let's make this a positive experience for everyone.
2.) Along with your critique, please also mention the things a person is doing correctly, if any... hopefully.
An important part of learning and confidence building is to know when you are doing things correctly.
