"A Short History" Video Series

Postby SousaWarrior9 » Mon Jun 29, 2020 1:24 pm

I've recently stumbled upon the YouTube channel for five watt world, and in particular, their series entitled A Short History, in which they break down Iconic guitar models, how they came to be, design changes over time, famous players of that model, etc.

Here's a link to the channel for context: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5OAMx ... rjgpY6u8cA

And while I don't know the first thing about playing a guitar or much about guitar design, I've still found these videos fascinating as someone who is interested in the manufacturing and history of musical instruments in general.

My question to y'all is. Would any of you be interested in a similarly formatted series that focuses on well known tuba models? Obviously the size of the audience and culture of "vintage gear heads" is considerably smaller in the tuba community as opposed top the guitar world, but I believe there are enough "fabled" models out there that a series like this could be warranted. I'm looking into the logistics of starting a YouTube channel, not only to showcase some of my musical projects, but also to potentially put out brass related video essays such as these, so just curious, if something like that existed, would you watch it?

I would definitely watch them.
