Well, I admit it finally. I suck at making videos. That is, I suck at getting AROUND to making videos! I suck in the same manner that I suck at making multi-track recordings. I just cannot bring myself to do it.
However, a GIG is another thing. I always show up at a gig, and I always give it my best. For some reason, having the audience there expecting something from me in the live setting makes me deliver in a way that I cannot seem to accomplish “time-delayed” as in doing a multi-track or making a video people will ostensibly watch later.
I proved that “gigging” was the solution when I defeated a 10 year musical stagnation streak by doing a full year’s worth of daily live shows in 2017-2018. I stopped doing that (due to a physical injury to my hands coming from old age) and have now enjoyed a two-year stagnation period again as I have tried with great futility to overcome that procrastination (or mental block) issue again without success. Gadzooks! I am such a broken-brain human!!!
I am going back into the live streaming business. THIS time, I am going to also tackle the “making videos” issue by doing live webinars. I could do them the same way I did my music streams as live streams on YouTube, or do them as Zoom meetings using the “Live Sound” audio and recording them locally as well to edit later on. I have a NewZenler school that includes Zoom where I could also host them. Nothing stopping me from doing it, so I AM!!
I’m scheduling the first webinar soon - like VERY soon. Really really really soon!
I’d like to hear from folks what they’d like to see webinars about topic-wise. I will include open Q&A sessions (not necessarily on-topic with the webinar topics being welcome). From these, perhaps some videos will become edited and turned into stock for classes at my NewZenler school, but initially, I just want to be DOING them!
Let me know of your topic suggestions below, and days and times that work for you. I was thinking that somewhere around noon EST on staggered days of the week two or three times a week would be fun.
Let me know.
