Made a YouTube video with my daughter. She's trying to be a star. Good luck to her.

If you are feeling generous, like it for her.

Lolz!

I don't 'tube. Next time I'm signed in to a google thing, I'll like. Smile

PS - What brand of guitar? Couldn't really tell. (Yes, yet another guy that dabbles at banging away on a variety of guitars. Or, at least I used to.)

An Aussie brand called "maton". They have an extra wide fret board which makes them one of the most forgiving guitars i have ever played. That one only has a solid top but i love it to bits.

I had a now long-gone no-name sort of "lead acoustic" like that. It was neat. (got busted under bad circumstances Sad )

There are some really cool classical acoustics you might like, which is basically that sort of style, except with nylon. Though, that's not always true, as I've seen some so-called "Spanish" acoustics with wide fretboards and standard-wound metal acoustic strings, which makes them a bit interesting to play.

ie: "Classical" style fretboard/guitar.

I've been thinking about taking it up again. All my guitars are probably long past their "use dates" though. Stored them in crappy places. I'm "almost there" in terms of going out guitar shopping. Smile

Fun song, nice vid, stay happy! Smile

For true youtube success it needs more boobies! Wink Sorry, but it's the ice cold truth.

So, philip, as a conclusion: you need to eat more and grow true manboobs! Then it will be a great success.

Read over the initial post, reminded me of the purpose and your "helping."

Your a dad. Youtube is friggin nasty. I understand a young girl's desire for attention and recognition. Young guys like that too and I should know, since I was one. Once... I guess, I dunno, it's all kinda fuzzy.

But being a "star" on youtube is like standing in a pile of crap and getting acclaim from people that like staring at people standing in piles of crap. Youtube makes it easy for people to become celebrities. And, it shows. Anyway, enough lecturing. Just keep being a good father and never put yourself in the role of a "friend." Therein lies oblivion. (Weirdos all over the place. A dark jungle, for all the lights it has.)

Advice Section: Smile

The camera is a person. It's not that thing you line up in front of to take a picture. It's not something you talk "to" it's something you talk "with." (In multiple ways, you're talking with and "with" the camera.)

Who is that person? It's the one person in the entire Universe that really, truly, wants to be there and experience whatever it is you want to give it. Do you want to make that person happy? Then, make 'em happy. Sad? Yup, got that covered. Concerned, frightened, joyous, anxious, whatever - It's a person.

In the vid, the camera is a "camera." It's like you're taking a picture for your family's Christmas card. You know the ones. They're ones that come every year with some crappy family pic that the family slaved over, made costumes for, got their dog to dress up in a tutu for. What happens to those? Only grandmothers like those, everyone else quietly throws them away when nobody else is looking so they don't have to make up an excuse why it's getting trashed. Don't worry, there will be another in the mail next year...

So, it's a person and it needs everything a person needs to enjoy the experience. Camera guys and the neighborhood director of photography make that happen. The sound guy helps too by providing cords for everyone to trip over. Lighting goons hold up reflectors because sweating is what everyone is supposed to do, right? Some makeup people slather goop around so the camera can see facial expressions. They get awards for this... Costume freaks babble about personality and give the actors the same damn stuff to wear, but with a new pair of socks that's supposed to make all the difference. Everyone agrees.

The writers are supposed to do something, too, but they're off getting stoned with the celebs in their trailers.

Anyway - The camera is a person. Look at the vid and decide what did that person "need" to get the best experience possible. Next time, make sure you provide that. Then, next time, cover a bit more. Next time, etc, ad nauseum.

Being a star - Be yourself. Everyone is star. That's the easy part. The only hard part is getting other people to look at them hard enough for long enough to realize that, hopefully with some "truth" showing through, somewhere. By that, I don't mean personal crap, I mean whatever is produced is "true" even if it's fiction. This vid has a lot of "true" in it and that's great. So, keep going with that, just increase the "production value" a bit by treating the camera right in all respects.

PS - For goodness sakes, never, ever, reveal any information, anywhere, about who and where this is taking place. Nothing. Nada. NEVER. No more real names, nothing in the background with any regional crap on it, use a masking service for ownership/access, never mention schools, anyone's proper name, etc. (Yeah, I'm a bit protective. Youtube is a pile of garbage with a microphone and camera.)

that was really good, just thought that the guitar was a bit on the loud side of things. Still your daughter was brilliant!!!

I would heed Morkonan advice, also some advice of my own.

The BBC world service did a feature on youtube, the the raise of sexual predators and the like, youtube has problems. (it not the only one) the problem with youtube is, while inappropriate videos can be removed at some speed, comments won't be. The report system just doesn't work, for example, if someone in the comments section asked a girl to do a hand-stand. and a user reports it, then the comment will not get removed. The other issue is, youtube has volunteer mods, but even their reporting of such comments don't get any special treatment. As a insider told the program, that there is a huge backlog of reported posts that still haven't been removed for months or longer.

I would be careful using youtube, and advise your daughter to be really careful. And if such comments do start appearing, (you never know) then don't expect those comments to be removed anytime soon. better maybe to close the channel and go somewhere else.

I would tell your daughter this, for her safety as well. Its a huge risk, while google is been very slow to act, so no idea when anything will change? but there is now pressure on these media sites to start doing something. But until they do get their heads out of the sand and start doing something. I will tell your daughter to ignore such comments, and make sure your also aware of them, and then go else where.

Sorry for been a bit off topic, but I thought I would share this, as I feel it's important info to share.

Actually not to join in alarm but my best friend found that after his daughter (13) posted a you tube vid, which he approved, about a history lesson she liked of all things, he found 3 persistent posters asking for her details and then he found one had got her mobile number by posing as him. Same guy then turned up on her facebook and then (and this really was weird) in an instant chat for some 'my little pony game' she played on a handheld.

It was chilling and cops had zero interest.

he set up a meet in the end posing as his daughter and had a chat.

So much info out there but it was amazing how quickly they zero'd in
