WAAHH! This is so awesome. So many replies! I never expected there were so many people that loved instrumental stuffums.
Wyvern, that duduk sounds awesome.The version of Nostalgia with the violin sounds absolutely beautiful! I like Nightingale, and it has an awesome flute. (I wonder if “I can go the distance” in Hercules was based off of the same music). But omg The Storm!!! INSANE! Who the hell can play the Harp that fast!!! You can tell Yanni really appreciates and feels music.
Fix, that video of Giovanni’s Daydream is just beautiful. I think I can hear Bach in it Part 2 is just awesome because of how epically fast he goes. I always love the Piano Guys and there stuff is just crazy awesome. That version of nothing else matters is hauntingly beautiful, and lol at their headbanging. And haha, that Canon in D is funny, but I still like Canon rock better. I juts love how they can dance and not crack up while playing it. The strumming version is so lighthearted and awesome, though. And Pagagnini with the rose! HAHA
The celtic woman dueling is awesome, as ever. Electric violin is an awesome instrument, and I wish I could play violin just so I could play an electric one. I don’t know Shenandoah but the celticness to it sounds pretty cool. That silent jealousy is pretty cool, and reminds me of old school gaming music. XD And yes, I love that violin meets retro gaming with Vampire Killer.
I have seen zelda done so many ways before, but this a capella is pretty awesome, though the violin goes over the voices a bit too much. HAHA! I love that 90s one, that is fabulous! And that christmas song, my friend played that song while we were glassblowing and I nearly died laughing! It’s sooooo good!!! The first time I watched original voca people I couldn’t stop laughing, but they’re so funny. I’m not the biggest fan of beatboxing, but that kitchen diaries is funny.
o.o Bagpipes?? Never thought they could sound so awesome, that’s all I have to say about that. XD And zomg, star wars bagpipes. I can’t watch anything seriously when it has Darth’s head on it.
To me the Theremin is one of those “freaky, but sounds cool, and wtf is that doing” instruments. I love it, and I’m surprised you didn’t link to any of the zelda theremin songs, there is quite a few running around. The simpsons mix he plays is commonly heard in long openings and halloween episodes. I haven’t seen that episode of Big bang Theory, but lol. And zomg, that cover of Crazy is awesome! That Yoko Kanno cover sounds like it really is done on the piano, not a theremin. o.o And holy crap, the Kantele looks harder than the theremin, but they do sound interesting together.
Kevin, the guitar is always welcome here. Yuki Matsui’s guitaring is very beautiful. o.o I have never heard of the Hang before, but seeing how he played it, I think I am about to become obsessed. XD
Magy, this was mostly instrumentals, but I suppose we can find a soft spot for orchestral bands. Coughs I was actually introduced to Nightwish because of their style. I’m far away from the days I was in love with metal, though. (Wish I had an angel is still awesome). As said, not very fond of metal no more. But the beginning of the Phantom of the Opera is very well done.
Fix, I think the practicing is more to memorise the song than anything.
Luigi, never knew you played so many instruments. o.o Ludovico Einaudi has some beautiful songs. The small places where his music gets faster is what makes them so amazing to me. I have heard many different versions of Requiem for a Dream, but this one is very nicely gone into, the way they bring in the voices. I personally think that orchestra versions always make songs more epic! I don’t think I have ever heard of a song being played with the wood instead of a bow, but wow. o.o I think Axis of Aesome totally fits in here due to their 4 chords video. It is just so true!!
Omg guys, so many replies! Keep the videos coming, they are all so awesome. Let us keep sharing this awesome music with the world!!
