GuitarTutee Goes Widescreen. Yey!

It’s inevitable. Youtube went widescreen (or 16:9 aspect ratio) some months ago, and back then we just perfected using our Standard-Def 640×480 pixel camera for our video blogging shoots. But as with all technological advancement, lowly consumers like us always get the tail of a chicken-on-the-loose for only a few seconds, only to slip off our fingers rightly after—and then we have to chase a bolder and faster chicken all over again.

We were shooting in the 4:3 aspect ratio since we started two years ago, and although it was hard leaving our comfort zone, widescreen was immediately a welcome change. In just a few days of shooting in 16:9, we received good feedback and comments from our Youtube subscribers. Here’s a comparison between what our videos looked like before, and what they look like now.

Comparison of GuitarTutee Youtube Videos--  Before - 4:3 Aspect Ratio (standard) vs After - 16:9 Aspect Ratio (widescreen)

(you might notice and say that they are both widescreen, but truth is, the first video is actually shot in 4:3 aspect ratio and we just put black bars below and at the top, commonly known as a letterbox)

The next step for our tutorials would be to shoot, edit and upload in High Definition, but that would be an entirely new story. First of all, our current computer wouldn’t be able to handle all that HD juice, and second, it would take us a whole day just to upload a single HD video given our barely-DSL Internet connection. Not to worry though, the current GT widescreen videos are of good quality and will probably take a good year or so before being upgraded. It will take a lot shorter if you care to donate (an HD video camera perhaps, and a 2Mbps connection), but we’re satisfied right now and hopefully you guys are as well.

    this is really nice because it will encourage more people to play the guitar and widescreen shots helps a lot in seeing which string is plucked and/or what chords are played for the beginner guitar players. I myself was one of them πŸ™‚ GT was kinda like a parent to me in guitar playing. carefully guiding me into what i am now and maybe if there wasn’t any Guitar Tutee, my guitar would have been dusty right now but GT encouraged me especially when they posted tutorials of my favorite songs and i pursued what i dreamed of when i was still young-to play the guitar. maybe what i said here is somewhat dramatic but its true πŸ™‚ in behalf of my friends, I’m glad to say that GT, thanks for all the encouragement you gave us and you’ve been a big help not only for us but to all guitar players professional or beginner around the globe :)even our band’s guitar is GT inspired:) it’s also a red davis guitar πŸ™‚ so i will always hope n pray that GT will continue to prosper. long live Guitar Tutee!
