Congratulations...you're going to Hollywood, or Pollywood
You're a nice lad! Okay, I'll say with tits out (not much choice there) yes, it was a clean take Howzat? It's nice to occasionally not have any serious wince moments. There was one spot where a little fill wasn't quite there but not a cringer ... and the band all pulled it together, which was a nice surprise.And background has absolutely nothing to do with creating a gem of a performance. This performance Pol, is a gem. I've had few, if any, gem performances in my truncated "career". Stand proud, tits out, & say to yourself "yeah, I nailed that"!

lol, ... and keep in mind that is was some underrated comments on your drumming in this song Polly, we don't want to be responsible for keeping you in the room you're typing your DW posts, we have made allowances for you to be able to go accross the door entrance ;-))Cheers muchly, guys. Not inclined to agree with this "world class" accusation but I'd rather you say that than "bottom of the class"
Yes Pol, I get those too. Here's what happens, YT has software that recognises key elements in your clip. It automatically matches that to a data base of material they've received from all manner of material owners. If a match flags up, these owners are contacted and given three choices: 1/ do nothing 2/ have the content removed (you have the right to appeal) 3/ place adverts on your clip from which they earn money.Ho ho
Now for a less happy place. I received this email from YouTube:Dear AlmostEthical,I have more than a dozen cover versions on my channel and now suddenly this BS about a rehearsal room recording on a little H2. Do they think this will compete in the marketplace with The Kinks? lol

Does anyone know what goes on and how this works? It all seems absurd.
I doubt they give a toss about quality, though. If the vid became a Rebecca Black-esque YouTube sensation they'd be interested, and it wouldn't even matter if we performed with even more extreme levels of talent, sincerity and imagination of that genius vixen artiste ...All that said, your clip could easily fall into the category of "threat", as it challenges, if not exceeds the original in terms of quality of performance IMO.
Yes it's totally absurd, there's thousands of covers, "drums" covers, singing covers, "parody" covers (mocking an artist) and the likes ...Lawyers + programming = Mindless control
Yes it already got the obligatory statement attached.And Andy, your latest video will be warranted of several e-mails from YT ...
Henri, amazingly it can. I uploaded the KD Lang track with tell-tale file name and info. It was quickly attacked. So I took it down, changed the file name and added no comments. It was hit again.Perhaps you could give a diffent title or comment when uploading your vid, surely the YT software cannot recognize the music being played within a video.
Ooh, that was brutal ... but as with the original, I still couldn't get all the way through it.
As Pol confirmed Henri, it can. I even tested the theory that it only scans the first 30 seconds/ 1 minute, whatever, but no, it seems to scan the lot. We put up a cover with a near 2 minute original intro, & it still managed to latch onsurely the YT software cannot recognize the music being played within a video.
Big Brother is watching ... and listening!
Amazing and pointless ... really, in the sense that many bands do covers, it's not a threat to the original bands, quite the contrary.As Pol confirmed Henri, it can.
That was a good idea. I didn't think of that. And they still sleuthed it!As Pol confirmed Henri, it can. I even tested the theory that it only scans the first 30 seconds/ 1 minute, whatever, but no, it seems to scan the lot. We put up a cover with a near 2 minute original intro, & it still managed to latch on
Dunno. It seems that it depends on the company. Seems that some are playing hardball. There's no easy answer ...YT big brother must be very busy, almost 70% of what is uploaded on YT, regardless of topics, do not belong to the person who put it on line, all my vids, exept 2 have YT comments attached.
True ... most of your performances are not technical ... they're magical *just for the "love fest" relationship *If I get a notice on that one, well - it's not technology, it's magic!
No hassles at this stage. That says something about our efforts As you can see, I'm not shocked by your warts and all efforts because my band knows how to produce really big, ugly warts!love the images Pol Did you get the notice yet?
Actually, all stumbles are forgivable due to Glenn's stellar voice, & I like the overall vibe. I'm not usually a fan of key changes (read: we've run out of ideas), but this one works, especially supported by the guitar bend to pitch.
Yeah yeah, bullsh* bullsh*True ... most of your performances are not technical ... they're magical
Fun to assemble (took about 15 mins) - copyright notices as art. I might receive a copyright notice for using someone's copyright symbol without permission hahaGood and appropriate images throughout the clip though
Dunno Andy. That intro is a worry. At first we tried piano but it was a total mess so then we shifted to organ, which is more forgiving ... but still needs work ... and bear in mind that we've been trying to get this song together for almost 4 months! lolNow who's coming out with bullsh* bullsh*
