Default "Acoustic Avenues" TV Video series

I've had a little project over the past few months working with a local TV station to produce a TV show focused on acoustic music that might be of interest to some here. It's been a fun exercise where I get to use the studio space and lots of nice gear, as well as work with a crew to shoot the videos. The show only airs on local cable, but we get videos that the musicians are free to use, and I also have created a you tube channel featuring some of the tunes from the shows.

The channel can be viewed here:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqs...5PwHRUVm_6ogsw

If anyone's in the Bay Area and would be interested in being on a show, let me know, and I can tell you more about how it works.

Here's a couple of individual tunes from shows we've done so far (more on the channel linked above):

"StringSongs": Tim Farrell, Chris Garcia, Michael Manring


Bev Barnett & Greg Newlon

Doug biggest shame of watchng this is there is a guy and a gal who do songs together and they are pretty darn good.

But 2 YOUTUBE views? Really after over a year?

It put a knot in my stomach

The guitar player is great. Wish that dude with the big guitar lived near me? Man what I could do with an ace acoustic guitarist here in Los Angeles...Actually 2 would be better....

It has been interested to see, since this is a little different from my experience posting my own videos. I have enough subscribers that my own videos generally get some views fairly quickly. These are "cold posts" on a new channel, and they get no real attention, apparently they don't just turn up in you tube searches at this point.

However, it hasn't been a year, the earliest videos were posted in May, so only3-4 months, and they were actually private most of that time. I was waiting to get some critical mass of content on the channel to start sharing it, so really they've been up only a short time, and I haven't done anything beyond this post to let people know about them yet. Still, it's interesting to see the (non) discovery process!

I suspect you're referring to HobbyHorse, that's Phil Campell. He used to work at Gryphon and teaches pretty much full time in the bay area. Really good, versatile player. I didn't post a sample of theirs:

That was their first performance as a group - rehearsed the day before. But Tim and Michael have played together, and Michael and Chris have played together, so that probably helped.
