    Default 4 basic knots ...

    Folks,
    This is my first try at an instructional video.
    I would like some feed back on improvements, should i change the camera angle and so on.

    So 5 of the basics ..
    Reef Knot
    Sheet Bend
    Bowline + one handed version
    Figure of 8
    Butterfly

    Enjoy

    Simon

    Liked it....
    But....
    I had a bad time hearing what you are saying....

    Sound was good on other tings.... as you could hear the gear belt hardware clanging on the bench...and you could hear the rope "Flop" on the bench, as well....But had no idea what you were saying.

    Did you describe knot uses?...

    Joining two pieces....use better contrasting rope colors....

    Lots of hand waving......

    Thanks for posting.

    The strings on your shirt are uneven...

    Okay okay, it was pretty good! Like Hunter said, the audio was a bit soft. As I mention to the few Youtubers who ask for opinions, please please please caption your videos. I know it takes more time, but for those of us with hearing loss it can really compensate for poor/outdoor audio and thick accents.

    Other than that, a good selection of knots to start with, and probably the most useful! I'm partial to the figure 8 loop instead of the butterfly.

    I do seem to use a truckers hitch an awful lot. its not hard but probably not a beginners knot.
    There ain't too many problems you can't fix with $500 or a 30-06.

    Him-"Whats the best knife for survival?"
    Me-"the one that's in your pocket."
    Him-"I don't have one in my pocket."
    Me-"Exactly."
