Till this day I wish that I would have learned how to play a musical instrument. Was always too busy with sports.
The Violin and Piano were the two instruments I wish I would have learned to play. My buddy that I grew up playing guitar with ended up getting a Violin for Christmas about 4 years ago.
These days I never have time for anything time consuming. I play my guitar because I can pick it up and put it down at any time. (already knowing how to play it)
Either that 4 year old knew a song I have never heard of, or the request was prompted.
Either way quite enjoyable.
Violin is one of the hardest instruments to learn to play, outside of the double reed instruments (oboe and bassoon). I played violin all through high school and was a good technical, orchestral player, but never had the panache of the gifted ones like this guy.
I played piano pretty well and I was also a percussionist in band for several years before giving it up for vocal music.
I'm hoping our daughter chooses a musical hobby at some point, naturally.
Probably both. Black and Yellow is a pretty popular song among Steelers fans, and was pretty big when they were in the SB a couple years ago.
But, it seems prompted, too. Because he had the beat ready pretty quickly.
I agree totally. I've played guitar for like 10 years - though don't claim to be anywhere even near "good" :laugh2:
I always wished I had learned to play piano or violin though...I love the way they can fit into other genres like Hip hop in the video.
Black and Yellow was/is a major hit from Wiz Khalifa. That song was all over the place for a while, and that album, Rolling Papers, was a big time seller if I'm not mistaken.
It could have been prompted, but I would assume that the guy just knew the song...at least enough to improv on it.
I can do that...
Thanks guys. I have never heard of that artist either.
