Youtube piano covers: This guy is awesome.


Recommended Posts

its always funny how leone's hair seems to grow with every new video. i saw a recent video of his and he has hair past his sholders and looks like some classical piano veteran on the classic music channel... acts like it too.


i used to play like he does with loads of sustain to cover the minor inconvenience of my smallish hands... but i've been practicing and have found that it really doesn't matter if you have big hands or not, you just have to learn how to compensate for it and i think i do a fairly good job. when i find a way to plug my webcam and soundcard into my pc at the same time i'll post up my covers.


the problem i have is that my sound card takes up too much usb bandwidth. and i'm using an eyetoy as a webcam, which on its own works well but is equally as bandwidth hungry since it wasn't made with pc's in mind. i'll see if i can borrow my brothers cam as it follows you around the room which is pretty cool, and i might be able to confuse it if i play fast arrpegios and it tries to keep focus on my hands :p

On Youtube, What the difference between the video,channel and shows sections? I want to upload videos to youtube and then eventually make my videos into a show, but I don't know what category to put it in, the video, channel or show sections. Can someone plus explain the differences.

you are my hero ;)


Sure I am a little jealous, but why do his videos all have 10k plus views and I am lucky to have 700 views????


Also of note, I can be guilty of too much sustain myself from time to time, but I try not to let it get in the way. My biggest pet peeve with Piano Muse covers is when people do Space Dementia.... The album is very spacey and washed in reverb, but still has clarity. I see so many versions were people overly dramatically play the intro SUPER slow, and then instead of clean even notes they go straight into: "look how fast I can play" mode, with the sustain rocking at full blast!


I think my next mini project is to post a video of Space Dementia with NO sustain, I'll do this and Stephen, you record the bliss arps with one hand and together we will rule the galaxy as father and son... oh wait...


Lastly, one last disclaimer, I am not trying to be elitest and all "my E5 is perfect" on everyone, I just want a little love for my videos toooo :$

Yeah Roy, I'm the first saying that my piano playing is weird enough:D

I overuse the sustain, and I make a lot of mistakes, but my main focus always was to feel what I play. That's the only thing I care:)

And I have to say that your New Born cover is the best one I saw on Youtube, and I like the clear sound you have into your playing (and you know the rough sounds I have into my videos instead:D)

Keep on make videos, and you'll get the views you deserve :)

Have a look at this:


He's covered basically every muse song, as well as a bit of nirvana and radiohead - and you can download all of it which is awesome. I love this version of starlight - Muse have got their work cut out!



This is Ago, yeah? (leone8)


Yeah he's awesome :happy: He's a member here but he's hardly ever on.


You are so nice guys, thank you! (maybeI'm a bit late:D)
