In my years on this planet, I’ve learnt many things about myself through constant over analysis. It could also be said that I’ve just plain old tried lots of things. Gymnastics, tennis, swimming, rowing, aerial silks, flying trapeze, bungee jumping, scuba diving, cooking, etc etc. That’s not unusual. Most of us try different things through our lives.
One of the things I had lessons in as a child is piano. I had lessons for three years and while my memory of my teacher is a kindly lady in her 50’s or 60’s, she may well have been in her 20’s but aged horribly due to all the stress of listening to my musical abilities, best described as non-existent. I can dance to a beat, tap to a beat but beyond that, I have no musical talent whatsoever.
So when I found Andrew Huang through Peter McKinnon’s youtube, I was very very impressed. This video is totally “off brand” for this blog but I just wanted to share his mad skills. He builds a song (and shows you how) using the sound of a piano being dropped from 20 feet as his beat. Sure, why not? Enjoy.
