New capture card! Time to make some videos
Just got gained the ability to record my ps3, so I'm making some videos of fully-leveled charts, concentrating on ones that aren't already up on youtube:
Bodysnatchers - Radiohead
One of my favorite Rocksmith jams. It's deceptively hard because of the constant syncopation; if it doesn't feel like you're playing early, then you're playing late. The transitions are pretty tough, and the ending section is super fun. The whole song is just a great example of how to jam hard using essentially 3 notes.

Slow Hands (full bass chart)
Just recently discovered that this song is really fun on bass. It's in drop-D and song is a marathon, especially if you're playing it with fingers. It's a good test of your time-keeping; there's a bridge part near the end where the entire band drops out except for the bass and organ, and you're thrown out to play by yourself for a little bit just hoping you're still in the right tempo when the rest of the band comes in (I'm a little fast in this video).

glad I saw Bodysnatchers before you deleted them both hehe
Nah, they weren't that embarrassing! I just used the wrong gmail account to upload them. They'll be back in a minute.

This ones pretty fun, and a little easier then the previous ones, especially if you know the guitar track already, because the bass line is taking all its cues from the lead guitar and the vocals. You can kind of tell that this track was conceived as a singer+guitar song first, with the other instruments written in later.
I started doing this with my phone and tablet but I just can't get a good angle that avoids glare or some other crappy effect. I keep getting these master mode encores on songs I've only played one or two times and youtube is not helping me out at all with a lot of the songs.
Counting the days until the PC launch so I don't have to buy some external recording device for xbox. Fraps isn't the best software in the world, but I've already got it, so no need to buy anything else.
Yeah, I was getting tired of using my phone for taping myself, but I've been finding the recordings extremely useful for reviewing my own mistakes, so I've already justified the purchase to myself.

Space Oddity - David Bowie
Here's one that I'm sure some of you are curious about. I'm not perfect at it, but I just mastered it today. This is the only bass chart that I know of that uses every single fret on the instrument, and one of the few charts that is still pretty challenging on emulated guitar. Also, the slides will chew up your left hand if you don't have tough calluses yet.
I had to do that for the last master mode, I hadn't made a video of it and I couldn't find it on youtube. I think it was Six AM Salvation.

OK, boys, let's get down to brass tacks here. We (OK, I) need a thread to discuss video capture techniques. The camera thing just doesn't cut it. As someone mentioned already, there's always a glare issue or something. (In the room where I play, there's always a reflection of the ceiling fan light fixture, but if I turn the light off it's too dark - and I'm not really interested in lighting my living room like a movie set just to shoot RS video.) So, what's up with these capture cards? Or, how might one record a signal by hooking a digi-vid camera directly to the output of an XBox? Ideas? What's working for you guys?
