    onacarom! In English, up here, a carom is a pool shot, bouncing it off the sides.
    I'm banking on this evidence, banking also being another pool term,
    that this advice will only add to your reply count.

    It's obvious you haven't learned from me, replying to my own postings,
    that it only boosts your reply count.
    Surely, there is something you did or missed or didn't do,
    that could use a little clarification or extra explanation.
    I'd like to know how you put together your videos,
    with explanations of what the various graphic elements mean to you.
    For one thing, despite different members explaining, you too,
    I've never been able to embed a YouTube video. That's a biggie here.
    Come on! I'm up here in Ontario, a vast geographic and cultural distance from you.
    That's reason enough to be more diplomatic and be more of a teacher.
    The way things are now, any extra personal font from you would be joyfully received.

    Fretting fingers want to know.

    Very effective - thanks, onacarom.

    Now that my ability to embed has been proven, using Jimi Hendrix in another thread,
    I'll retitle a video I made of me playing electric guitar and call it "Variations of A minor Scalar Activity"
    I start off trying to get a feel for this guitar, playing double note leads from the Allman Brothers "Blue Skies".
    I know, I know, I'm using too much distortion for that, messing around with some imitation steel guitar chords,
    and then I start playing some lead guitar in A minor.
    Over three minutes long.
    This isn't a very good presentation, and this Samsung camera is an indoor portrait camera,
    with a mild fish-eye lens, making me look heavier and shorter than I am.
    I telephoned my domain build tech in New Brunswick to get embedding advice,
    not embedding in my own johnwatt.ca domain or my previous music domain.
    A previous thread I started, where I want to put up videos of me jamming with onacarom videos,
    can now become a reality.
    This is a serious move for me, pushing my musical boundaries, jamming along with your poetic videos.
    I can hardly wait to jam along with a Frederik Magle video.

    I see you commented on the one video of me jamming along with you,
    saying I had a nice guitar tone. That's a 1972 DiMarzio P.A.F. Humbucker, my best pickup.
    It took a while before I found a tone that I thought worked with your sound,
    and were I was sitting it was a nice mix, but I was too loud for the camera.
    When my new left-handed mail order unfinished guitar gets finished, I'll put it in there.
    I'm always having my hand on the tremolo unit, really missing it here.
