    Long before the advent of the Internet, I likened the process of fame to skeet shooting: first, you're flung to great heights; and then people take aim and shoot you down.

    Congrats, Christian, on this first shot across the bow. Your YouTube channel has arrived. I'm glad you were unscathed. May it always be so.

    (And may the trolls go back to living under bridges, as they did before the Internet.)

    Best,

    Geoff

    Enjoyed the film Christian, thanks. Out of interest just had a quick look at Mel's own youtube videos. Couldn't help but click on one of the songs there titled "Fuckability" (great song title couldn't resist!) by Maria Doyle Kennedy and thought it was a really cracking song actually, anyway...

    Interestingly enough in the comments to that video/song, there's just one item which reads:


    "Pinned by mel obrien
    mel obrien5 days ago (edited)
    Had to delete a couple of moronic comments by TROLLS. Paolo Rossi, a coward who hides behind a pseudonym."

    Oh the irony!!! - posted just a day or two before Mel's comment to you Christian. I recon if you study prehistoric cave paintings closely enough you'll probably find some pretty dry put-downs in there somewhere.

    Had to go back and re-watch this one for the sheer Air porn at the end. (those Stingrays were something else).

    What would be nice, would be a bit of a series on this one - samping, process, packaging, testing, release.
    Could make for an interesting insight (and also let me know when I can get my hands on those filthy noises! :) ).
    Just a thought.

    Easily the most informative (for a total ignorant like me) interview I've ever conducted...

    I added this comment on YouTube but wanted to post here too...

    To add to your Paco de Lucía/Concierto de Aranjuez example — Joaquín Rodrigo, that piece's composer, was blind from the age of three and wrote out his compositions in braille. So in a sense he too didn't "read music" in the purely classical sense.

    Congratulations, @christianhenson, on your YouTube channel's milestone! As a former marching band drummer, it occurs to me that you may be able to mount your camera to your body—as we did our drums—to avoid aggravating your "really nasty bout of tendonitis" in your left arm.



    Here's to your continued success!

    Best,

    Geoff

    Thanks Geoff... I'm exploring options, just a lighter camera is the answer but sound is always an issue with those.

    I’d be more than happy to take a hit on the sound if it saves your arm, Christian.
    I think I speak for most of us.

    Hi Christian.
    With regards helping people choose which to download - it would be nice if it was a bit clearer which have a Kontakt version, and also which version required, I noticed a couple were K6 which I don't have yet, so was a waste of a download.
    Thanks.

    This is a very sound point, I am procrastinating today so I'll download each library and investigate, maybe a tasty page with a comparison chart also would be nice?

    Possibly. If it's one of yours it's also not yet visible on your channel here, so you might also check that you didn't accidentally set it to private.

    eugene or
    Another amazing video Paul! Thanks again.
    I've been in on a few similar pours covering radiant floors (one was 6k sq/ft over a 4k sq/ft basement) and it always looks kind of scary.
    It's good to see that your patience is holding fast. Custom projects walk a fine line schedule wise but it sounds like you're in good hands.
    Can't wait to see what's next!
