This is not about politics; this is about genius.

I have subscribed to that young guitarist's YouTube channel, purely on the basis of this. :)

Unwatchable. Gah. Make it stop.

I could only hang on long enough to confirm that the poor singer couldn't stay in tune (in all fairness, everyone knows that solo a cappella can be a challenge that way for the amateur), and that the guitarist was actually having a go after the fact (and for the most part she was succeeding surprisingly well!) at the exercise of matching reality - seemingly on the fly, too, but I can't be 100% sure. But I just couldn't stay. What a trip. That takes an ear as well as chops. And apparently an iron constitution, too. I completely share Ben's appreciation for the guitarist.

*****

I just listened again - completely through, this time; must be the scar tissue - and I love how the guitarist threw in the Jeopardy! "thinking music" riff during the prolonged "freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee". Jazzy. Her slightly amused yet calmly masterful confidence is engaging, too, such as when she candidly registers the wry puzzlement or two (and rightly so: some of those sung notes were otherworldly and probably best left alone in their already-remarkable state).

I had watched and listened to the original, unaccompanied, live version a couple of times before stumbling across this video. In the original, it's incredibly painful. What I find so amazingly wonderful about this young guitarist's version is how, against all odds, she manages to make it all seem musical.

By the way, I have absolutely no doubt that that was not done "on the fly". I'd be surprised if she didn't put hours into working out that accompaniment. It's so good it made me laugh out loud for sheer joy at Emily's inventiveness.

From the first three notes! I just found a vid and wonder if I dare go further, bless her heart. I'm very sensitive, you know.

I really don´t know how to respond to that. . . . :boggle:

You are right (sic) Ben, the guitarist is quite good. :D

The singer's combination of brazen self-assurance of complete indifference to reality reminded me of someone...

There are a number of similar videos of keyboard players trying on the fly to make it work

She was obviously an anfi-solfa infiltrator.

Yes, I'd seen a few. The others don't manage to somehow make it work the way that Emily does here on guitar. That's what impressed me. Because, let's face it, it's a nigh on impossible task.
