I stumbled upon this song a couple months ago and instantly fell in love. There aren't many songs that are good for violin covers, so I jumped at the chance.
This was a pretty big accomplishment for me since I learned the song by ear in just a few days as school was winding down. I also am terrible at memorizing things--you know that horror story where you memorize something but when it comes time to play it, you completely forget? Yeah, that's happened to me on more than one occassion haha. But I managed to make it through the entire recording without forgeting what I was supposed to play. I recorded the melody live in my basement for an echo-y effect, then recorded the harmony an added it in later.
This video could not have been possible without multiple mosquito bites, several strange stares at two Asian kids walking down the road with camera equipment and a violin, confused looks on the faces of passersby, countless hours staring at the computer screen, and my little brother George haha.
I am not perfect and neither is this, but I had a pretty good time making this. Enjoy!
