I was on tv... 

its was a kids show

Remember i was stressing out about not using any copywritted material (i dont know why i bothered, they telling me one thing and doing another).. i have absolutely no idea whos elevator music or that poor washed down copy of Almoraima was ? ...if it wasent a kids show it would have been pretty embarrassing :-) but its to be expected from network tv.

all i did was play sevillanas for the dancers...the only thing in the video that is me playing is the 2 chords for sevillanals rithm :-)...they removed everything else

this was the same day my guitar broke and it was being fixed which is why i got there late and only had time to play sevillanas...anyway apart from my beef with they choice in music its not too bad...as far as a kids educative show goes

not anymore fish'n chip boy !! ...we tired of being a colony first step is making sure you cant watch our tv so we can use it for propaganda...i am kidding, yeah its stupid...but its probably a blessing for me, haven't been on the internet in the last week and someone tagged me on facebook with it, its not a big deal but that washed down melody of Almoraima is embarrassing, everyone knows it and its not me...if i am gonna be embarrassed on tv i wanna be embarrassed with my bad copies


only good thing that could possibly come out of this is i meet a couple of single mommies who were watching the kids when this show came on


btw the other day I watched the movie " Iron Lady" about Thacher....it was ok but man so so slow, wanted to pock my own eyes out...did you see it ?

You know it's the general public's fault as they pay more attention to dancers much more than musicians as if it's easy to play flamenco guitar. It was less than 5 seconds on you

RE: I was on tv... (in reply to kudo

well this one was about flamenco dancing as an activity for the kids...just as well as i couldn't have done the talking that Roshanne did on tv, i am a terrible tv or radio talker ( i cant get that excited, bubbly, voice and the honest, wholesome face that you trust on tv, theres a whole bag of those cooky and approachable body gestures and things that everyone else seems to do ok with that i just don't have, BUT! id make a great presenter for some porn review programing on a cable acces show ) ...and to be fair, i got there towards the end...only in time to play a sevillanas, they had already done most of the filming

I thought you looked cool and the guitar sounded great, even though only 5 secs.

Hey don't knock it Flo!

TV is TV. Add it to your CV and Publicity stuff!

cheers,

Ron

PS: I've been wanting to say this for a while...err...but your avatar kinda looks like you are practising guitar on the lav.

the 5 seconds was short but great! they should have put more.

overall, the whole thing was pretty fast paced. especially that magic costume change.

don't tell me they filmed you playing the whole sevillanas. They could have use the audio to cover the explainations. Instead of editing with this beatbox sample
Even if they don't show your face at least lets heard to the audience the proper sound of the music.

Now you think the kids have a correct idea of how flamenco sounds? They heard electronic music in the background Hopefully they could appreciate the nice dresses and accessories
