The whole 20 song performance was good, with no fatal stutters, really at all.
But of course, obviously there are parts of songs that show us off better than others.
And I know club owners don't have lots of patience to sit through a long thing.
So I have cut it up into clips that can fade into each other. Wanted your thoughts, though, on:
1. Most clips end up being between :40 and 10 or 1:10 in length. Think they are still too long?
2. Some songs I got 3 or 4 equally great clips from. Others only one that I liked best. Don't want to do any back to back clips from the same songs because in my mind as a listener, that's just like putting the whole tune on, so why was it clipped at all? (As a club owner i might be wondering if I did it to edit out mistakes, lol) So should I just pick the 15 or 20 best clips of all different tunes and string them together? And end it there? Or should I just figure, hey, they will listen until they decide to shut it off, and go ahead and start adding other clips of the same tunes, after all the tunes have been represented at least once in the start of it?
3. I definitely think I should string them all together, so the listener does not have to go back to the menu option page to hear the next clip. But I could also have a next section where they could choose to select a clip from whatever they want from the titles. Jump straight to clips of specific tunes. Should I do that also?
4. Overthinking it even more, - I could include whole songs at the end. Should I? Just a handful of the best, or does that then make the listener think all the others were used in clips because there were sour parts? I could put all 20 on. In all honesty there are three I could leave off but not because they were train wrecks or anything, just not the same energy as the rest overall. Including all but three .. seems wierd ... after all this, I'm thinking I might even run into issues of space available on a DVD....
I know I'm making it a bigger deal out of this than I need to - really, I was happy with the whole thing. It wasn't totally without any glitches - but it was a live capture, and nothing serious wrong or even close to it - a couple of minor things but recovery happened in like, a second. Lighting could have been better but it was decent, and the sound pretty decent as well ...
Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
