As a rule, I am not a bluegrass fan. Every once in a while I hear a song that gets my feet a’ tappin’, but nothing that knocks my socks off.
Then along comes the SamuraiGuitarist.
Naturally, I’m all hyped up with the upcoming release of Star Wars: Episode VII, The Force Awakens, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to like every Star Wars thing that comes along now. However, this bluegrass version is, surprisingly, excellent, and I love it!
Star Wars Theme Medley – samuraiguitarist (Bluegrass)
After watching this video, I poked around on the SamuraiGuitarist’s Youtube channel — this guy is extremely talented, and I think I’ve fallen in love, too. Hmmm… I wonder if he likes older women?
Anyway, check out his version of Don’t Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult. This video is one that knocked my socks off. The artist made it entirely with an iPad. He separated out different "instruments," playing each individually, then synced them altogether. That, in itself, is not an easy task, either. The SamuraiGuitarist pays close attention to each and every detail and note, and it shows in his final video.
