After writing last week how writing can be really difficult for me when I am looking for a result or a specific impact, I remembered this video and how it has appealed to me in many ways. So I thought I’d share it here with you and just be curious what it does for you…
Here’s what it did for me:
First, I find this song energizing and I like listening to the music. I feel like getting up and moving my body.
Then, what a cool idea to play together on one guitar! Creating all the sounds from voices and one instrument. I would not have thought so many people can actually gather around just one little instrument. I can feel how my need for physical space is screaming that I wouldn’t be able to do this… Also their faces and the way they bring in their different pieces just appeals to my weird sense of humor. And then I think how cool that guy on the right is… would be the worst role for me: having to wait for most of the song to play my 3 notes and not miss the moment.
I’m imagining how much fun it was to create this piece and how much precision it takes to make this look fun and easy. I usually get carried away by their very own interpretation of the music and the imaginative way of playing it together. I laugh and the next moments of my day certainly have a new lightness.
You know what – just watch them. There are many more cover songs by Walk off the Earth on youtube…
