Thanks Jerry. Now I see the video link loud and clear. I am using Tapatalk on an Android tablet. I see other embedded youtube vids normally. Must have been an off day.
Now to the video..... I agree with the others that you are certainly getting to grips with the fr8x. Even the guy chatting to you whilst playing didn't phase you much.
By the way, your mum needs some lessons on how to take videos with her phone :)

3) Roland FR8X; 4) Hohner Vox 4k (LMMH) 3/3 CBA

Thanks Glenn, and sorry, but there are no amounts of lessons available that would help her out in that domain, she is from the non-digital age and beyond help in that area... lol

But she did try and it did manage to give me a few memories! :)

Great video of a great performance, Jerry. Well done. The 8x and the fellow playing it sounded great! Good luck with it; it's a beautiful instrument.

I can see the video with no problem. Great performance Jerry!! You look so calm and confident. Hope me and others with the same stage fright can play like this one day!

Thanks Acon, but I am glad that video cannot read minds... lol. Also you did not see how badly my hands were shaking when I went to sit down. All that said, yeah, I would love to do it again and I will bring it to the next club meetung in February. I also feel I can do a lot better too. :)

thank you for sharing! I enjoyed your video. My hands always shake terribly, don't even know how I play like that, until about 8 bars into the song, then I seem to calm down! Great job!!!!

Question: are you using the bellows? It don't not look like it in the video, but then it was never zoomed in. On the FR-8X, the bellows makes a huge difference in the sounds you can produce! I cannot play the FR-8X without the bellows - guess it's just the way I was taught!
