Violin Vlogging Done Right

January 8, 2010 at 6:49 PM

I've been enjoying violinist Ben Chan's presence on the Internet for some time now. Few people "get" the whole video-blog "vlog" thing like Ben does, and his enthusiasm for violin music is infectious. I thought everyone would enjoy this tutorial he gives on a transcription he did of some gypsy music:

He's done a zillion of these videos; here is the link to Ben's YouTube channel

Laurie, how do you get the 'renamed' hyperlinks in the new system. In the old days it was the >aref and insert link and then rename link thing. but I haven't yet figured it out with the new format.

I've enjoyed Ben Chan's videos since I stumbled across them on YouTube and enjoyed following him through the YouTube symphony process. This video of the Gypsy Theme from "The Red Violin" is what pushed me to sign up on his web site and get the sheet music he transcribed.

What I'm curious about is the copyright situation. I looked to see if I could purchase it before downloading it but all that I could find were some of the caprices from the movie.

Anybody know what the copyright laws are regarding transcribing music like this?

It's a good question David...
