Don't make this performance mistake. It could cost you YouTube Viewers

A while ago I watched a bass player, and while he was good, he just didn't hold my attention. In my latest YouTube video I demonstrate what he was doing, and initially what I thought was wrong. I thought the problem was he wasn't smiling and looking at the audience. Then I'd seen another bass player, that wasn't looking at the audience or smiling. This time it didn't bother me one bit. Why? It had occurred to me the first player just looked bored with what he was playing. While the second one, although not looking at the audience, was really into it and concentrating where he needed to.

I see players on you tube doing a similar thing. They try to look natural, not looking at their guitar to show how good they play that tune. Unfortunately to me, and probably many other people, it just doesn't come across like that. If they can't look like they're enjoying what they are playing, then perhaps, just show their hands and the guitar only, not themselves looking bored. If you look bored, why should we not be bored watching.

You could be loosing watchers on YouTube as a result. Don't let it be you.

What do you think, do you agree with me?
