Getting cool music for your amateur video projects is tough — assuming you want to keep things legal. Recently, I did a video for the karate school that I attend and really thought that Kennedy’s song “Karate” would be awesome for the video. So, I took a chance and emailed the artist on Facebook and asked his permission — he said yes! Also, the other night, I tweeted another artist that also gave me permission to use their music in my projects. So, the next time you would like to use cool music in one of your videos, contact the artist. The worst that can happen is they say no or don’t respond.
