[FFmpeg-user] Wanted to batch convert mp3 folder for youtube.

I wanted to simply convert a folder of mp3's into a video with an image 
in the folder as the video (simple youtube stuff) and found this line 
that claims to do the trick

for %i in (*.mp3) do ffmpeg -f image2 -loop 1 -i folder.jpg -framerate 60 ^
-i "%i" -c:v libx264 -tune stillimage -c:a copy "%~ni.mp4"

but i get a red line of text in my CMD window saying Option Framerate 
not found. Googling this problem has produced nothing i can perceive as 
the answer. nothing suggesting i spelled anything wrong (especially 
since i copy pasted it) and i am TERRIBLY fustrated. I always hated 
command line programs but this seems to be the only thing that lets me 
do what i am aiming to do. Everything else i saw in google results has a 
conversion option but nothing that lets me attach an image and do it to 
the entire mp3 contents of a folder. seems so simple but i have spent 3 
hours on this. any friendly advice on the probably obvious thing I'm 
doing wrong would really help me out. thank you

I can provide screenshots if necessary but i didnt want to risk worrying 
anyone with attachments from a stranger and breaching some protocol.
