Its a typical day and I’m just looking at Recommended Videos in my YouTube, which are usually songs/music/mixes; that’s what I listen to. So I’m there, listening to UK Piano’s new video and I find a playlist recommended for me. In that playlist is a Cello cover of Game of Thrones by BreakofReality. YouTube then features Misty Mountains Orchestral Cover from The Hobbit by sleightlymusical in my Recommended for You list. Now it comes! Another video recommended for me from ThePianoGuys. And WOW!

I just sat back, stopped my work and watched one video after the other. The first one that caught my eye was Kung Fu Piano: Cello Ascends, a play on Oogway Ascends from Kung Fu Panda.

Before you start thinking there was a green screen for the Great Wall of China, watch the second video. They actually got the piano on top of it!

I didn’t stop there! I then watched the video which YouTube originally recommended for me - A Lord of the Rings cover. And after that, I continued …

Music is not just about melody or harmony. Its about enjoying, feeling and extracting the emotions out of the listener and ThePianoGuys do just that. I’ve included some more of the many they’ve made, below. DON’T forget to visit their YouTube channel! Obviously I can’t list all the videos here!

A quote by Ludwig Van Beethoven, included in one of the videos -

Don’t only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the divine.
