reggie miles Mudcatters on YouTube (502* d) RE: Mudcatters on YouTube 11 Jan 11


Yep, I got stuff on the Tube. Folks began posting miscellaneous videos featuring my playing and I collected them all into a favorites file. The quality varies greatly among these. I have only one actual music video of my song, "These Old Shoes". Some of the rest of the videos in the file were captured from live shows. Some were impromptu camera captures by passersby on the street. In some cases the videos were then edited by others into their own visions.

At least one of them is a television commercial. The result of the campaign that used that commercial later brought several million dollars to those who launched it but I received nothing for my part, except the exposure of having my music included in the effort. I also get a cameo in the first few seconds of the commercial.

However, because of the camera crew's efforts at posting one of my songs, "Wall Street Bail Out Blues", on YouTube, I did get my photo in The Wall Street Journal and mentioned in an article about songwriters, that made the cover on February 6th 2009. The article by writer Rob Tomsho, "No Dough In The Do Re Mi", also mentioned some other songwriting heroes, Woody Guthrie, Neil Young and Tom Paxton. Priceless! All due to a video of my song getting posted to You Tube.
