The only paying music gig I ever had was to make the sound track for a commercial. I put 4 bars of a simple one note melody into a computer program and my old Atari ST and “M” a composing program did the rest. Here’s a link to an article about the program and some updated information.

The result I got sounded like a real orchestra played the music. I played a few bars from a classical piece and the program changed the tempo and everything else! The result was a professional sound track and I got a new computer out of it. The guy who paid me found himself in exactly the situation you are in. Even “Happy Birthday” is copyrighted…

I really injoy your videos, with or without the music. If I had to pick I’d go with #1.

Initially I liked 3 the best. But you may turn off certain LJ’ers who aren’t into bluesy rock guitar.In other words, I would keep the music intro genre as neutral as possible, so as to not alienate a potentially large segment of your audience.
So I think #1 gets the vote. I like the video on 3 though.

Alright. I feel like Im just spinning my wheels here. Looks like no intro is the way to go. Thanks for all the input guys (and gals) I have a few more videos for this week. Just need to put them together. Thanks!

ron is right when you pick music you pick your audience but when you look at the demographic of practicing woodworkers the majority arer between 40 and 65 so I think the blues will be the best choice but i still think you should record your own jam if you play if you dont I have lots of music friends that could do you a duty free riff. I could even do it If I really wanted to
