My friends Nathan and Mandy sang this George Strait song in a recent live stream. I wanted to add my Lever Steel to their version. Nathan and Mandy have the finest vocal harmony together!

Thanks to all on the forum who advised me and got me through some new skills!

I like it too.

Is this steel guitar homemade?

Yes it is.
A lap steel with two levers that deliver most of what pedals A and B do on a pedal steel.
6 strings instead of 10
Roller bridge and nut.

Good job.

To bring it to the next Lightworks editing level you might use more camera angles while the music track keeps going (even in a single camera shooting), instead of using the split screen.

Some interesting new artistic and editing challenges for every Lightworks noob

There are many bands who use split screens for their homemade Corona performances.

Combining the idea of changing views with split screens could look like this (edited recently in Lightworks by a member of the band):

Agreed - for a moment I forgot about the fact that Corona is limiting possibilities right now. Maybe good for me that I don't feel - too much - influenced by this.

So consider my advice for non-live performances in the post-Corona era

The above is captured with at least 8 camera views and varying screen layouts. So the director of this video, who is also the bass player and the editor, has already anticipated your suggestion.

No, it's not captured with one single camera, but could have been, due to the recording with audio playback on different locations, same as this, with a significantly higher budget for travelling, though.

Yeah, the artists need to survive as well during these times, and YouTube ads provide their share, which is good.

Why not something like this, the next time, with steel guitar instead of drums?


Sina appears to have a full featured multicam studio, but multiple takes with a single camera and different views, will do it as well and keep the budget low.
