Good music and extremely adorable dog.

Pretty danged good.

That was cool. I'd like to hear the piano not run through the computer, I bet that's a hoot.

And the dog reminds me of mine when I'm at the computer. "No, pay attention to ME!"

"Dude, you haven't scratched my ears in ... oh ... 10 seconds.  Get with the program...."

Cool find subby, thanks.

/has a dog like that
//unfortunately he's a 175# mastiff
///when he wants attention he slams his head onto your shoulder (assuming that you're sitting) & pushes down hard.  Not quite as easy to ignore...

Very old Russian stand up performance: guy come on stage with violin and says "let me play you something on my violin. You know.. *5 minutes about how his parents forced him to learn violin and how it made his life very difficult* You know, let me dance something on my violin"

One-handed while petting a dog.  Pretty impressive.

I would really like to know what that sample pad is. Too cool.

Yeah, kinda cool. But I am still more impressed with this 10 year old doing a hell of a cover of Kansas

Ableton Push. There's a newer version (Push 2), but you can still find the older ones out there.

Not to be "that guy", but he plays a D7 arpeggio (C-A-F#) instead of D major (D-A-F#) at 1:59 and 2:25, and it just sounds "off". Listen to the original, and you'll hear the difference.

Pretty sure Casio did that back in the 79s or 80s.

At least he didn't try to play a Bernie Leadon solo

 I noticed that too.  In his defense, though... I believe he was distracted by the dog.

Listen to the young lady kicking some Kansas ass, and watch that gif.

That was great - either there were only five people in the audience or not enough of the audience appreciated just how tough that was to play.

I wanted one of those Creative dual keyboards back when I was still composing. I always thought it would be great for banging out a quick tune that pops in my head while I'm working on other things. Just flip to a simple music recording program and play the tune, then go back to surfing for porn.

synthesizers, how do they work?

It's bartalomeus magic, you give synthesizer to talentless hack and whoila, music come sout. Add fancy music video and you have star. No wonder musical people like Brant Bjork wont get famous

I heard that and assumed it was the harmony part? Also, Don Felder is cool.

Overheard somewhere recently: "Hotel California is basically a negative Yelp review with a two minute guitar solo."

That was awesome, but I do have to wonder... Have they simply devoted an insane amount of resources and intellectual talent to creating yet another mediocre guitar player in a world that already has millions of them?
