The other night I had a reunion show celebrating the 20th anniversary of the release of our debut record. It was a band called the Fiddleworms that I helped found in the 90s. Was a great time getting back together with these guys.

Here's a couple tunes I captured on my GoPro.

Sounds great.

You're uploading videos in 1440p/4K? Man, I'm behind the 8 ball.

Yeah, I'm actually pissed that I forgot to switch the camera back down to 1080. GoPros have shit battery life to begin with so it burned out before our set ended. I was used to just filming short mountain biking clips and such, so I always left the thing on 4K. Oh well.

I always run out of battery life at a gig. I ended up buying a bunch of 15ft. USB cables for mine off Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007NLSGOQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They've worked out great so far. I recorded 3 hours straight at my last gig. But if you have plans to strap a GoPro to your headstock you've gotta go the battery route, unfortunately:

Thanks Paulo. I'm cutting up all the video I captured into individual song clips so they'll be a little easier to digest. I'll go ahead and link them here just for the hell of it in case you guys wanna check out more. It was really a fun performance that I'm pretty proud of.

Ok, here are two more clips (single ones this time). There are more on my YouTube channel there if you're inclined to listen.

On Line (a bluegrass-tinged folky number featuring my Euroburst Höfner)

Matt, listening to your first video, and it sounds great - what a terrific band to fiddle about with! So, give us the particulars... what bass, amp, and cabinet are you playing through? It all sounds good!

Thanks man! I'm playing through another guy's MarkBass head, MarkBass 210 and Hartke 115. Didn't mind the amp, but that 15 wasn't my thing. Definitely got the job done. I was playing my '74 Jazz mostly, and my Höfner Euroburst 62. Played my Warmoth fretless at the end of the set, but my GoPro died. We did get a board recording of the entire show though.
