Top 10 Ways Musicians Are Using Vine

Vine-logoVine, the iOS app that allows you to take short shaky videos and loop them incessantly, has been a big hit. I've been a bit of a skeptic but it's hard to deny that sometimes creativity can come in the form of 6 second video clips that can be looped individually or chained with more such clips. So I decided it was time I went in search of interesting and entertaining ways musicians are using Vine.

Some people are baffled by the cassette subculture, others by the popularity of Vine. I counted myself among the latter until I viewed the following Vines by musicians though my favorite is Vinetune which was created for some musicians by an ad agency.
