Amazing Hiphop/Rock Improv: Toccata and Fugue in Dminor -TVG.NZ

Amazing Hiphop/Rock Improv: Toccata and Fugue in Dminor -TVG.NZ(video) \ The music society at our University of Canterbury held a talent quest but because I was too busy organizing it I hadn’t had anytime to prepare. So about 5 minutes before I was due on I took my Guscott 5 string electric violin to another room without my pedals and took a guestimate as to how the performance would go basing it on the Bach Toccata and Fugue I hadn’t played for 5ish years. I use a Boss RC-30 Loop pedal, a Digitech RP-500 effects board and a Shure SM58 Mic. Let me know what you thought, would like to hear me do any future covers and of course Subscribe to my new channel. Cheers, The Violin Guy. *Disclaimer* Because I was President of the committee organizing it I wasn’t eligible to enter but damn it was fun anyway.

    I planned to enter but got way too busy with Uni work unfortunately, next time though I’ll definitely give it a go.

    I think this may be one of the rare occasions where the camera removes ten pounds… Maybe we should promote it as an alternative to all the diet plans out there 😉
