[FEATURE]: The Piano Guys

Wednesday, August 29, 2012


Nowadays, there so many independent artists you can found everywhere, especially in the internet, just search in YouTube and you'll see hundreds of them, making covers and showing amazing talents, how I wish I was among them but sad to say I don't have the talent but then again I'm good with just listening to them. :)

So for tonight's post I want to feature my newly discovered group of artists, ThePianoGuys. Believe me when I say that they make an amazing instrumental covers because they really DO! I'm glad that I was able to accidentally discover this people because now they are among my favorite YouTube artists along with Sungha Jung!

So what's their story? 
The Piano Guys started out as a piano store in the small town of St. George, Utah. One day while Paul was selling pianos, Jon Schmidt walked in and asked if he could use a piano to practice before a concert. Paul was blown away by his talent and they began to create music videos together. At first the videos were very basic, but as time went on we created more and more involved productions. After we filmed a few videos with Jon, he introduced us to Steven Sharp Nelson, a cellist who was beyond anything we had ever seen. Jon and Steve had been performing together for several years, and we could see that together we'd all make a great team. The rest is history in the making. [excerpt: http://thepianoguys.com/music/]
Though I find it a bit humorous that they call their group as ThePianoGuys where in fact there is one Cellist among them. Hehe, just saying.

I really enjoy watching these people doing those beautiful instrumental covers that they make, not just because that they make great videos with all the setting, quality and everything but because of how obviously seen in their faces that they enjoy doing it and that's what I like about them. Seeing how much they appreciate creating such music just for the world to hear is a very fine deed to regard.

Right now they asking for help"to be able to take what we've been doing locally on a more global level -- playing concerts, holding workshops, and speaking to young people to encourage them to pursue life to its fullest and to make good music an integral part of their lives" excerpt from http://thepianoguys.com/music/, and I for one support these agenda, that's why if you want to give your own support, feel free to visit there website: http://thepianoguys.com  


So here's a teaser for you, Thousand Years by Christina Perri instrumental cover. It's one of my favorites among their instrumental covers so I hope you like it. Enjoy! =)

Again & Again...

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

 

Can you imagine how much I've been hibernating and been out from this blog, oh yeah, I guess you do but don't grill me about it please (I'm on my knees now actually).  I hope you still here with me in TMB.

By the way,

HAPPY EID MUBARAK!
to all my Muslim viewers out there!

Moving on...
Anyway, I want to share to you guys this one soundtrack from the Korean Drama 'Love Rain'.  (This song had been stuck on my head for quite some time now).

Now let me tell you how I came into this soundtrack when I actually haven't even watch the drama series before and I honestly think that I haven't even heard it before 'till I dream about the piano instrumentals of it, yeah, right, I've heard it from my dream (which pretty much what I want to believe but my sister don't agree) and what's more intriguing about it is that I even remember it and I can't even get it out my head. It's like LSS or in other words 'Last Song Syndrome' (I don't know if your familiar with that term. It's not really a medical term, it's actually just a made-up word, it's something my friends and I made, haha, It's just actually means that it's a syndrome where you keep on thinking or singing a song you have heard recently/lately and you can't get it out of your head.) Anyway, It happen a couple of weeks ago, and as usual I was asleep, (usually I remember my dreams or bits of it, I don't know why but as long as it's a nice one and not a nightmare then I don't mind). Then one night, my sister was playing music on her phone, I can't just stop on what I'm doing and listen intently to music, it was her that told me that it was actually a soundtrack from a Korean Drama entitled, Love Rain, & guess who is the main male protagonist? It's Jang Geun Sook! If you remember my post few years back, I made this post from a drama that he starred also, hehe, just telling. Anyway, it was then that I finally found the title of the music, Again & Again, which is my title post for today. 

The opening of the music is very catching to say the least since it pretty much stuck in me and I really like the meaning behind the lyrics of the song. Really, I think Korean/Japanese Dramas makes the most heart rendering soundtracks from what I've heard from every dramas I've watched.

So here's the video of the song with the lyrics credits by belcuore88.

I really want to share you guys it's piano instrumental but sadly I can't find anything like it but then again I found it's guitar instrumental, so I hope you'll like it, though I personally would love if the mp3 version I'm sharing with you is the piano version but this version isn't that bad at all, it's actually a very jolly & vibrant version of the music. So hope you enjoy it! =)

Again & Again (guitar instrumental)


And oh, I'll be going to Malaysia & Singapore next month! I'm so EXCITED! Hehe, just saying :) I hope I can meet some of my listeners/readers here in TMB, if that's possible! Have great day everyone! Happy Muslim Holiday!
