Starting this new series where I share my ideas on practice techniques specifically aimed at making a piece feel more secure and reliable on stage. I appreciate any thoughts you share.

That's a very cool video effect with the ghost hand! It took me a few minutes to figure out how you could have done that, and I had to try replicating it myself...

Thanks everybody for the subs and feedback.
I never know how something winds up being received so it's really nice to get such a positive response.

Thanks. Believe it or not, I actually first did that with iMovie. But then I re-did it with After Effects as a learning experience.

Thanks Amy. I'm planning the next few episodes of this series but also want to go more into depth on the topic of accuracy. And the occasional performance video.
