Hey guys! So I thought this song was soo insanely awesome. And I made a video lesson of it, but then didn't like the format so when I went to update it, I changed the format and found this gem:
OMG awesome video. And I LOVED how it's all staged so they just use one camera. Beautiful and awesome and awesome and beautiful. If they're going to win any awards, it'll be for this one! I discovered this band when I was playing at a really funky wedding a couple of years ago (two years ago I think? don't remember, they all kind of blend together!) with heart skips a beat which you can watch here if you're into hearing more stuff from them. and obviously subscribe to their channel if you want new stuff from them, because that's the way to go!
The thing is, as an intensely trained classical musician, I actually know so little of the awesome songs out there, and now I'm getting more into them because of all my students and all the people around the world who have requested them.
I'm excited, so I'm letting my inner kid come out here, and with all of my videos. It's so fun to learn new things.
And now learn it!
And by the way, future violin rock star of the internet, if you haven't taken the challenge yet, the time has come!
1. Download a karaoke track/ backing track. Or use one from youtube. There are lots up, find a good one ;)
2. Learn the song from this video
3. Post it to youtube
4. Send me a message email@example.com and I'll tweet about it, facebook post it, and paste it in the link to the video you learned it from. A little promotion never hurt anybody, and I want to help you to play violin like THAT!
I'm working on the format all the time, and when I get a good formula figured out, then I'll stick with it, but until then, if you have any suggestions for how I could make these videos so YOU could learn better, please please suggest away!
