I've got a lot of respect for people who can just improvise covers like that on the spot. Some songs worked better than others, but it was very impressive overall.

Great find!

Wish I could do that, guy rocked it.
Loved a Matter of Time but I'm partial to it

Also, he totally respected the songs, making them a bit dull at some points... I bet if he toyed around with them he could OWN them and add some keys to connect them better.

Hi, i'm "the guy"
I was wondering why a couple of my vids got so many views so quickly, then youtube insight pointed me here and i saw this thread... strange reading a thread about myself
Anyway, thanks for the appreciation and glad you enjoyed. After my vids got more attention than i expected i felt a bit bad that i didn't put more effort into them, and in fact i redid a couple - White Limo on the day, and Bridge Burning a week later. I would be tempted to redo more e.g. Rope; however, the whole point of what i did was that it was spontaneous, kind of capturing and sharing the moment of listening to a new album for the first time. (Literally i listened to each new song then recorded it once i'd figured out the main chords and melodies). I guess i was inspired by the more live approach of the Foo Fighters to the new album.
I have done one more Foo Fighters cover since - Come Alive. This is a song that was much more ingrained already in my mind after listening to it many times in the past, and it means something to me personally. I also spent more time preparing it to do it proper justice.
But can i just end by saying that despite my best efforts i still feel like a piano cover can only be a pale reflection of the original - so don't want to divert attention from what it's all about i.e. the Foo Fighters... such a phenomenal band and make sure to support the band and buy the album
Chris

Cool! I'm really envious of your skills, I've been wanting to hit the piano since I started getting into Ben Folds about 10 years ago... but have no time, or money or patience, or all.

Kudos!

I sense a hint of sarcasm. Am I not allowed to say that?
