My first violin performance for general public
Last Friday Borderline Blue played a two hour set in the front window of a local coffeehouse; and on Amaraillo By Morning I played fiddle

Sorry the audio level of the violin is fairly low; just an iPhone camera and its built in mic in the back of the coffee shop

Yeah, it's a bit low in the mix, but you couldn't help that. Can still hear it, well enough to say..

Bravo.

Way to go Gary. You already know that the level was way too low. :(

thanks for the kind words, all. @Fiddlerman, I had a multitrack recorder set to go but didn't trigger to start for a section of the set including this song. ; otherwise for the video I could have compensated for the audio level problems in the live mix. Nonetheless, I was happy with the intonation and sound, even if the front-of-house level turned out to be too low. In the auduience it was a little bettter than what the iPhone picked up for the video, farther behind the audience. gws

Nice done, Gary! XD I guess it's not only the violin was too low, i think guitar was so as well, and the bass - too high, so You're not alone.
