Getting Started with Your GuitarVision Session
Step 1: Setting Up Your Recording Space
Use your smartphone or webcam for recording.
Ensure the camera is stable; a tripod or stable surface works best.
Position the camera to capture both your hands and the guitar.
Choose a well-lit area. Natural light is ideal; if not, use lamps to brighten the space.
Avoid harsh shadows on your face and hands.
Step 2: Ensuring Clear Audio
Choose a quiet room to minimize background noise.
Close windows and doors to reduce external sounds.
If using a smartphone, ensure the microphone is not covered.
External microphones can improve audio quality if available.
Step 3: Positioning Yourself for Optimal Recording
Set up your guitar comfortably.
Ensure the fretboard and your hands are visible.
Sit in a relaxed but upright position.
Avoid slouching to maintain a clear view of your playing.
Step 4: Recording Your Session
Double-check that both hands are clearly visible in the frame.
Angle the camera to capture a full view of your guitar.
Play the piece you want feedback on.
Don’t worry about mistakes; this is about improvement.
Step 5: Uploading to Your YouTube Channel
If you don’t have one, create a YouTube account.
Upload your video as ‘Private’ to maintain privacy.
