Before recording please visit the link below with easy-to-follow tutorials for every possible scenario. Use whatever equipment you have, even just a mobile phone, but these tips will help you capture the best possible sound and image.

IMPORTANT:

  • Dress-solid black, no ads/slogans on shirt, black pants, black shoes, socks; Accents like ties, bows in school colors
  • Use footstool/support; play in classical guitar 'style'
  • If recording in a bedroom, beds should be made
  • When recording please make sure to use headphones to listen to click tracks so they will not be audible on your video.
  • Please tune your guitar to A=440Hz before every single take!
  • Video should clearly show your face (no cutting the top of the head off), hands and the instrument. Use an eye level shot rather than low camera angle. Shoot video while there is plenty of natural light and don’t use window as a backlight, position yourself so that the window is in front of you or at a max. 45 degree angle. Use any background you like.

Please download the click tracks below and play back the mp3  while recording your video.
