Thank's. I see that was on 25th of November. Some 18 months after channel took off. Now, only 2 months later, I'm almost at 28k. If the trend continue, I might get to 100k in a year.

This opens some questions. I know it's far from being the same, but can you imagine your album sold in 20k copies,
or your songs received 20k airplays, tracked and reported?
Maybe you would not be really rich, but buying a new guitar would be no brainer. Point being, in the past there was less opportunity for exposure, but exposure was worth something.

By the way, I thought I'd never do this, but The Times They Are A-Changin' - Just like listening and watching, sharing and subscribing is also free.

Above clip reached 5000 views. Essentially It's not music clip, but contains 2 versions of same solo, over same chords.
A SKA version and Jazz version.

BTW there's over 40k views total, already.

Feel free to subscribe, I mean, it is free, just like sharing, listening and watching.
If you get served an ad, you may well click on it. It'll cost you nothing, while I'll get a small reward for the effort.

I always enjoy your vids for several reasons. The music is always interesting, of course, but the video is also very interesting to me. Some viewers may only "see" a bunch of traffic, or may pay little attention to the video portion at all. I enjoy the insight into another culture.

Many of us never get to see how people live outside our own country. Sure we see travel/tourist videos, but they are focused on specific points of interest, tourist traps, etc. They focus on the things that are unique to a foreign culture. What I find interesting about your vids are the things which are common to other cultures, but with local variations.

Thank you Creekster.

I prefer to let people see in it whatever they choose, so I won't talk about what it is for me (although I think I said it sometime before).
For sure, it's not just traffic. Cultural refernces, yes, I took them in consideration while making and developing all that ...

I rarely go to countryside, but there are some local roads, of course when I have some countryside I'll publish.

At the moment I'm thinking about getting a better camera, lots of people asked for that, so I may finaly surrender.

In the meantime, here's trip back from montenegro, with some female vocals, no guitar, something I did at about year 2000 ...

Speaking of countryside ....

this is the forest located within the city of Belgrade. It's not the only one, I've already posted clips from another one, and there are more. Also, the last minute of the clip is from a local road and one village some 100km from Belgrade ... Music is not new, 2 tunes I already posted within other clips

Of course, those views have nothing to do with music. Simply, there are lots of people having trouble with radios in their Fords.

Anyway, there are 2 variations of one same precomposed solo, one in SKA counter rythm, the other with more of a Jazz sound.

Yup. Seems people love to be given value for free, unfortunately, I can offer value only in a form of worthless trash, but since it is for free, I do receive some payback.

you have got so far beyond my understanding with that video, Vladan,  don't even know 'what did i just see?'.

flip side of that 'value' thing is 'people like to sell 'no value' for lots of money.'.

ever read 'Zen and the Art of Motorcyle Maintenance'? good book, but twisty....guy got so wound up about value, he went nuts.
: Re: Self promotion - My YouTube Channel
: Vladan December 08, 2015, 07:03:18 PM
I don't get it either, I made it as a trash parody on How to clips, with lots of embeded text, and not much real info on surface.

However, there is all the info needed to find it online and enter key code, should you need one.
it happens when you have to change the batteery. Radio ask for a code, and if you don't have original booklet, or have that No. writteen down somewhere ....
you can follow links from my clip to download decoder, then type in the code. Or ask me in comment below the clip. I will gladly calculate it for you.

What I don't give and what is the hardest part, ... you have to know serial of the radio, so decoder would have something to decode. If you're out of booklet, you have to pull the radio out and reaad the serial from the sticker on the back. Pulling the radio out is the hardest part. I think I mention all that in the embeded text, but frankly, I've forgott what I'wrote there.

pretty much, there are so many 'complicated' and 'needlessly complicated' things on the net, i have modified my principle about 'lying' to fit the net...

the lying principle= 'if i do NOT tell a lie, i do NOT have to remember what i told so i can be consistent later with my story so as to not get caught lying'

so, internet principle = 'if i do NOT have a bunch of complicated stuff on the internet and do not get involved with said complicated stuff, i do not have to have a notebook full of notes to remember how to make any of it work later'.

makes life a lot simpler, especially with things not critical to survival.
: Re: Self promotion - My YouTube Channel

Something like that. That's why I start it with disclaimer: "This is NOT ...", although I actually do provide all the info about what I claim in the title. However, what I claim in the title is not all you need to finish the whole process.
Because I know what one might expect, I put the disclaimer, even if I never claimed I was providing anything more than what I do provide.

my back has gotten to the point, i don't do long trips no more. if i drive 150 miles, to me, that's a long trip.  be sore for 2 days after. i watch 'travel shows' on the public stations to make up for lack of travel. they go places i'd never think of anyway....great programs on nearly anyplace i could imagine.  this is kinda me:

Serbia is just a passing country, they stay here for a day or two and move on. If EU closes it's borders, it will be "fun", so to say.
I think violence is not that serious as one could conclude from your post. I don't know where you get the info, in our news it is not that dramatic, by a long shot. Ona new year eve, in Germany, there were sexual assaults reprorted, maybe even one rape, but ever since nothing simillar. Sexual assault can be anythong, down to holding one's hand without permission.

I'm more concerned about long term consequences, preserving autohtone culture and such. For example, our natality is decreasing, while all these people come from cultures where natality growth is one of the main faactors and so on. But if we are not smart enough, if our society is not good enough, develloped enough to preserve it self, maybe it's time for a change? Evolution takes no prisoners. Life.
: Re: Self promotion - My YouTube Channel
: reb February 07, 2016, 11:46:41 AM
Vladan, pretty much, that's my perspective on the u.s. 

if we do like the American Indian did-allow foreigners to take over our land and culture-then natural selection will substitute 'them' for 'us'.  Darwin, iow, had a point. when a society loses its warriors, decline is sure to follow.

in wars, it's called 'a beachhead', and other societies already have one here.

here, all the attention is focused on the southern border, when the Canadians are doing the same thing from the northern border...oh, hello, Robert! :)

we don't have ANY border anymore....glad i'm not 20 years old.
