Video music intros


#1

@zedshaw Do you write and perform the music intros to your videos?


#2

Yes I do, and I build the guitars I use too:


#3

:grinning: That’s so cool. Any chance for “Learn to Build Guitars The Hard Way”?


#4

Build guitars? I’ve thought about it but I’m no expert. I just tinker with the stuff all the time until I got something I liked. Pretty much you can build one with parts from Warmoth.


#5

Here I was thinking it might be a simple answer like “Yea it was a cool music program” or “a buddy of mine is a…”

But no, Zed has to be awesome and be like:


#6

Here they are. This one I call, “Beast VI” and it’s my favorite ever:

This one I haven’t named yet but probably “Sparkle Smurf”:

I think I may try doing new theme music for part 2 of the JS book just so I can use these.


#7

Certainly look professionally made. Well done. I’ll be sure to buy your album when it comes out. “Zeds Course Intros VOL 1” lol.


#8

Ha! I’m actually thinking of doing music to code by, but I really don’t have time.


#9

You could do a podcast. musicforprogramming.net is one I listen to from time to time, but it’s mostly electronic or drone type stuff.


#10

Hmmm, podcast is an interesting idea. Thanks.


#11

Nice guitars. Ever fancied something extended range? I’m a big fan of 8 strings.


#12

Well, the Bass VI has a huge range. 24 full frets so it covers a lot of the 8 string range and is easier to play. Otherwise, I’m not the greatest guitarist so an 8 string just confuses me.


#13

So it’s a baritone, I see. Best of both worlds then. I prefer playing in those octaves below but I’m less keen on really flappy retuned low E string, so the 8 string works for me.


#14

Maybe you can add a little jingle to your intro’s, “Doing it the HARD WAYYYYYYY!!!” :metal: :exploding_head:


#15

The Christmas edition!
