    It's some Sony HD jobbie. Pretty cool. Maybe I'll make a video now.

    Tape it to the end of your bottom snare mic - I reckon you hit that thing pretty ahrd - I'd love to see it.
    Oh, well done getting a vid cam. I bet we see fish from it before we see music vids.

    Too bad he doesn't use a bottom snare mic... Maybe he can tape it to his stick!

    How would I make a live scene in which I'm playing every instrument?

    Cloning works well. Haha but seriously, you can do something like leaving the camera in one spot then moving your position with each instrument. You'll need video editing software to crop each video so it looks like multiple yous.

    No, I want a wide action shot of 4 of me playing on one stage. How would I do that?

    Getting four of you playing at once is tricky, but I expect there are easy ways of doing it using masks and stuff (which I haven't mastered).

    However, one way it can be done (in my handycam-Vegas combination) is to use the Vegas Cookie-cutter plug in.

    Set up the 'stage' so that there are four definite areas in which each player will be, i.e. person 1 is on the far left, person 2 on the middle left, person 3 on the middle right and person 4 on the far right.

    Record each person performing, then pile these four video tracks on top of each other.

    The bottom track stays as it is (this is person 1 on the left). Use the cookie cutter on the second from the bottom to give a split screen covering three quarters (i.e. leaving person 1 visible). Use the cookie cutter on the third from the bottom to give a split screen covering half (leaving persons 1 and 2 now visible). The topmost later uses the cookie cutter again, but (because of the way the plugin works) using "cut away section" instead of "cut away all but section" over the first three quarters.

    If you play with opacity, of the top layers, the intrusion of person 1 into person 2's space may workout.

    I've just tried the above out, but using four different clips to see how it works. I haven't tried recreating a band, though.

    It's also not as good as having the players overlap each other . . . which is beyond me.

    Sounds like a lot of work for a three minute song/video that no one will watch.
