What make me unique? Well, lots of things. But as a musician, I'd say my uniqueness lies in my voice. There aren't many areas of life in which I am competitive, but I know I can sing and I get anxious to prove it. I had a teacher once who said "No one is as good at sounding like Mike Newberry as Mike Newberry." It took me some time to sort that out and accept that, yeah, he's right. I sound like me. I am lucky enough to have the ability to impersonate a number of vocalists I admire (and a few I don't) but in the end, I sound like me.
I bring that up to say this: I've been searching for something to make my online presence different. Thousands of people do gear demos, most of them better than I. An equal number of people perform songs and post them on YouTube, both cover an original. Many of them are better guitarists than I. VERY few of them are better singers. Different, absolutely. Better, not so much.
I'm not crazy about just sitting in front of a camera and strumming a song. Its boring to look at. Especially without moving cameras; just the one not-so-flattering angle. But there's only so much I can do with my budget, from an equipment standpoint. Beyond that, my songs and most of the ones I choose to perform focus on vocals. Melody. A nice guitar part is great (and I've written some I'm quite proud of), but a great melody is what makes a song.
So, I decided to do exactly that: Sit in front of a camera and play some chords. I figure the only thing more boring to look at is a guy with a microphone and no guitar. There will also be video-less songs in a more finished format. I'm always up for requests.
