Of course, the iPad doesn’t play itself, but is rather the canvass for this “ridiculous undertaking,” which is how creator Steve-san Onotera describes the project. Yep Steve-san performs all of the instruments in Blue Oyster Cult’s seminal Don’t Fear the Reaper, including voices, on an iPad and has edited the whole glorious mess into a single video (below the fold).
I believe that one of the best joys we can have is looking back on something you created/worked on a feeling proud. It can be the hard work you put into your degree, watching a child thrive, a cabin you built, anything. For me I’ve found that joy in music. This video was a major climb over that proverbial mountain. I definitely find a lot of joy being able to finally share this ridiculous undertaking. Just let me know if there’s enough cowbell — The Samurai Guitarist (aka Steve-san Onotera).
Maybe a little light in the cowbell department (or not)? Otherwise an absolutely awesome piece of work. ‘Twould be awesome if Steve’s “ridiculous undertaking” bought him a nice ________ (ie whatever the heck he wants)…
What’s your take?
