Hey guys. I'm thinking of getting a new webcam that has a capability of being attached to a tripod. My question though is this: what do people use to get the "down the neck" angle where they attack the cameras to their headstocks? I'm kinda baffled there as for how I would do that

Thanks!

I did that once. I think I might have just duck-taped the camera to the headstock

You could also rig a smartphone to do it...some vendors make mounts that could be manipulated to sight down the neck I'm sure.

I want a GoPro pretty bad for lots of reasons. There is also a competing product to GoPro that I am more interested in because the tripod base and other accessories are not proprietary. I can't remember the damn name right now - it will come back to me.

I got one of these standard adapter mini tripods that you can use to wrap around the headstock. Worked pretty well.

^THAT. That is awesome. Was it sturdy? Did it mess with the tuning pegs or anything?

Gorilla pod I think. Articulating tripod. They are designed to grip onto all kinds of things. Yes, you do have to mess with it and tuners a bit until you get it just right. The good news is once you get it locked down pretty good you can still adjust the tuners but it did take a bit of messing with. It is NOT the high quality stuff you see in videos though.

Here they are

I just duct tape my webcam to my guitar when I want that.
