That is brilliant. And especially like it that they got Eric Cantona to join in too!

Thanks. I thought perhaps just copying the address bar copied the url link without putting up the video on the forum.

I do like it, but their not singing/playing live. It's synching to a pre-recorded multi-layered track, but it does look great.

That's different. Compare the sound, (separation, tone, mastering etc)the actual arrangement and the number of strings on the guitar. They are not playing it in the studio video but they are in the live version. They could not have achieved that sound on the first video in the studio in one take.

Yeah 26 takes before they got the youtube done apparently. I thought the live version was good though all things considered.

Anyway a guy near me had a garden shed & didn't what to do with it. After several meetings down the pub he decided to get a couple of friends (local folk musicians) in and record them on a hand held camera and stick it on youtube. It took off and he now gets musicians coming from all over the world to be recorded in his garden shed on a hand held camera and put on youtube! Steve Harley turned up just before Christmas as well as Fairport Convention, Alaba 3 etc. All folk based but live & definitely no multi tracking or synching.
