Recently, in Creative Writing, we’ve been given an assignment to find an instrumental and write about the mood we receive from it. For those with nowhere to even start looking for lively, off the wall, insane instrumentals, look no further. I have a few suggestions!
First off: 2cellos
As the name suggests, this is just two guys playing cellos, of course having some other instruments join in. They do covers for some classic rock songs like Thunderstruck by AC/DC and Welcome to the Jungle, by Guns N’ Roses. They also do some semi- recent pop songs as well.
Next: Piano Guys
This group of guys know how to play piano, but that’s not all. They have a few cellists and know how to beat a drum pretty good. Personally, I’m not a big fan of One Direction’s, but to see 5 people on one piano play it is really cool. Four of them hit the strings themselves while the last gets to play the keys. Along with this, they have songs like Happy Together by The Turtles, and The Cello Wars (A Star Wars Parody). My personal favorite is the Mission Impossible Theme, which they do with Lindsey Stirling.
My last but certainly not least suggestion : Lindsey Stirling
AHH! My favorite violinist of all time! She has so many good medleys and songs! She had a medley for Phantom of the Opera, Legend of Zelda, Les Miserables, Lord of the Rings, Final Fantasy, and many more! Her original songs include a violin-guitar duel (Roundtable Rival), A spontaneous live performance (Master of Tides), and dancing with her shadows (Shadows). She also wrote a song that features Lizzy Hale of Halestorm (one of my fave bands) as the vocals ( not an instrumental but I needed to share that song, it is so good!) I love her style and is honestly one of my inspirations for writing!
I hope you all have enjoyed these suggestions, because all of these artists are truly phenomenal in their own way!
