A medley of 32 popular songs played on classical guitar and vocals.
This was a scary one, because so far, I had only made video game related videos, without singing. And this had its focus completely on my vocals. I had set my expectations really low, so that I wouldn’t get disappointed if people would hate it. I mean, I was proud of my arrangements and transitions, but who knew what people would think about my singing?
It didn’t really start off that great. Commenters seemed to really like it, but it didn’t get many views at all, compared to my previous video; Wind Waker Unplugged. I kind of lost interest, but after two or three weeks, it suddenly showed up on some blogs and sites, and then it just snow balled, getting more and more views each day, for years! It was crazy.
People uploaded it everywhere, and got really popular on CollegeHumor.com. My own upload had more than 7 million views when it was removed by YouTube due to a copyright claim from a fake publisher, but it was too risky to try to counter the claim, so I didn’t do anything.
So yeah, I guess you could say that this video changed my life a bit. I had no idea what to do with my life, but now I knew that I might actually be able to make a living on music, if I work hard enough.
