The Better Days Band
« on: December 03, 2016, 01:24:07 PM »

Me and my cohorts opening for Marshall Tucker in Stowe, VT (April 2015).  Sound is off a small stand-mounted video cam and I apologize for the unevenness.  Yours truly at stage-left playing my PRS Custom 24 through a Fender Mustang IIIv2.  Thanks to the talented Andre' Maquera (a better guitarist than I'll ever be) for stepping up as FOH mixer for the gig.

Our first time in front of a large audience (> 600 folks packed into an Apres-Ski bar).  Nervousness aplenty...

Odd, it should be visible to anyone.  Granted, I'm not a Facebook expert.  Is anyone able to get to it?

FYI: If you're using Firefox you may be running into a recent issue where it simply refuses to play videos from Facebook due to a perceived security issue with one of the AV codecs.  I had trouble viewing other Facebook videos from this forum until I upgraded the library (Ubuntu 14.04 Linux).

As always Facebook videos are only available to Facebook users

You would have to enter the Video folder on Facebook and right click to copy the Video URL  and post that URL link


But it's hit or miss, typically the person watching must be a Facebook member and logged in before they can watch Facebook Videos.


But I can watch them after I click through your link

Thanks, guys.  Three of us (myself, drummer and bass player) played together in a hard-working road act from 1972-1976.  We got back together in 2012 for a reunion gig and had such a good time we couldn't figure out why we ever stopped.  Mike (the other guitarist) was a fan from "back in the day" and jumped at the chance to join in. 

The phasing issues on that recording are a bit bizarre.  The channels seem out of phase only through part of the spectrum.  I tried reversing phase on one and it made things worse.  After this experience I bought a Tascam DR-40 and use that for room recordings (does a much better job).

Great gig. I really love the set up of stage. I really miss the old days when me and my bandmates on Metropolitan school of Panama perform live stage on battle of the bands. Now that I have my own family I am now unable to do those things. Congrats to your Band.
Regards,
Gustavo Woltmann
