All of my YouTube videos are that way. The only exception being the song I wrote about Hurricane Katrina where I used photographs I found online to create a montage ...and I only did that because I wanted to play around with some free video software to see how complicated it would be to put something together.

Jim-

What software did you use, and how was the learning curve?

That recording was done a long time ago, but daw would have been Pro Tools since that's all I've ever used. I think the mic was an AKG Solidtube and I'm pretty sure the guitar was the 2002 Taylor 814ce Ltd that I recently sold on here. It was a straight take as I only ever intended this to be a file to run by a couple of fellow songwriters.

I think there's a lot of difference in the learning curve on daws. They all do essentially the same thing and the steps involved are similar. I went with Pro Tools 20 years ago because a good friend of mine is a PT guru. He's been able to remedy any problem I've ever run into. Me and that guy became friends because he was the person who recorded and mixed my cd. He let me get a lot of hands-on experience while we were working on that and by the time we were done, I was fairly proficient at all the basic functions. Things past that, I learned as I needed to learn them.

If I were starting today without a friend to rely on, I'd probably try to determine what daw has the most online help available (YouTube, here, any other forum you might be part of, etc.) and if any provide telephone support.

I've been curious about who here is using what, so I'll start a thread that may be helpful to you.

Depending on what computer you have, it probably came with a simple 'movie maker' - insert one picture, insert the audio you recorded in other software, export it as an MP4 video to upload to youtube.

Drifting a bit, but...

iMovie is available on all Macs and iPads free since 2017, if not installed by default.

Movie Maker is a program that came with Windows up to at least Windows 7. I can't recall if it was still there in Windows 8, or if I had to find & install it. There now appears to be a free, new version of Movie Maker, MM10. I installed it from the Microsoft Store and gave it a try on my Windows 10 PC. It's pretty simple but lets you add, trim, split and move clips, add titles, and add audio. Should do the job for someone wanting something free and easy.
