I was doing a little tweaking on my YouTube channel the other day when I happened to notice that my Amati recital video was inching up on 20,000 views. This video consistently comes up on double bass search results, and it’s been on YouTube since 2006, so it is fun to see how many views it’s gotten. Combined with the 11,000+ views it has gotten on Eyespot (where I originally hosted it for the blog), we’re well over 30,000 views, which is pretty cool to me.
Are there even 30,000 double bass players in the world? Just how big is our community?
Here’s the highest quality version available (the original video wasn’t very high quality to begin with), hosted on blip.tv, the video podcaster’s best friend:
