As I mentioned the other day, i finally went out and bought a webcam so I could start recording some of my songs. I have been hesitant for a number of reasons, mainly self-consciousness. I watch myself on video and I feel like I can pick out where I mess up or do goofy things. I know where I dropped the pick. I know where I flubbed the lyrics. I know where I sang off key or did other little goofy things like head bobs. And, I'm afraid everyone else can see them, too. That's why I just have to stop watching and let them fly. I'm fine with a blog post because I can always go back and edit that; a video, not so much, and if I mess up too bad during a take (did that a LOT last night), I have to start all over again.
So I recorded several videos last night, this is just the first of them. Hope this song blesses you, it's called "Lift Up" and I wrote it after listening to Misty Edwards' "Lovesick."
