You can have a song on your iTunes playlist for the longest time, but not realise how technically impressive it is until you watch it being performed.
While studying last night LAGQ‘s Pachelbel Loose Canon started playing. Some of my friends from RIGE had once joked about performing it one day, and I was curious so I googled for the sheet music (another method of procrastination, of course). I didn’t find it, but was led to this video – and all I can say is, wow.
I don’t think I realistically can play any of the parts during my lifetime. I mean, maybe if I practised non-stop for a few years… nope, not realistically. But, wow.
Blue Echo, however, is pretty nice and looks a lot more replicable. Now all I need is three other players, the music scores, and a ton of practice…
I think I’m going to take up formal classical guitar lessons when I’m back in Singapore. Somehow, watching this videos has reignited the desire to do so, despite not having played seriously for more than five years now. Gosh.
