    OMG! I played for seven years and only got to play boring crap. Even then, I know how much skill it takes to do something as amazing as that. The bowstrokes are rather hard to master, and I reckon he got them spot on.

    A Violin is the male and Viola is the female. As usual, the female is larger than the male but you can also tell the difference by the number of pegs: the Violin has a fifth peg or extra peg for mating. I am not sure you can notice the 5th peg in this video.

    Not many people could pull that off. I`ve heard pop music on string instruments and it can sound pretty dorky. I`ve always loved "Owner of a Lonely Heart" because of the violin solo. Where was this filmed?

    His hair annoyed me also... it was as if he has it specifically that length to hide the stupid faces you make when you`re concentrating on an instrument. I refer to it as a guitar face, but really, it applies to this too.

    Also, does he smack his head into the mic toward the end?

    However it`s not too hard to `bounce` the bow on the violin like that.

    "astounding. why can`t more violinists do cool pooe like this?"

    Some do. I play violin in my highschool`s orchestra, and our concerts have included "Sweet Dreams are Made of This," a medly of songs from various horror movies, the themes to both Pirates of the Carribean movies and King Kong, a few songs by Mannheim Steamroller, and "The Best of Greenday."

    Oh, and Led Zeppelin`s "Battle of Evermore." The regional orchestra did a song called "Inferno" that was supposed to sound like Hell. They dragged chains and groaned, and there was a whip being cracked. It was sweet.

    Very impressive!

    I love Apocalyptica. My uncle told me about the band not too long ago and sent me a DVD of them to check out. It was awesome!

    JAXLEY, personally... I think that spiccato is a rather difficult technique. (I`m not sure if you know the term but that`s the bouncing of the bow.) I know that for myself especially, but other violinists as well, it takes a lot of practice to have that kind of control over the bow.

    SanityInsane, the piece that the orcehstra played, "Inferno", is from the Divine Comedy written by Robert W. Smith to go along with the books written by Dante Alighieri.

    The "Divine Comedy" is a series of books about a dream Dante had involving the rings of Hell and the acsension to heaven. There are 3 other pieces in the music.

    "Purgatorio", "The Ascension", and "Paradiso" follow it. I played all 4 pieces last year in my highschool`s Symphonic band.

    And yes.. I am a very intense classical musician

    by the way, his bow tone might`ve sounded rough because he was making it sound as much like the original version as possible. and we all know that guitars don`t flow between sounds very easily as a violin does.

    this is merely speculation, of course

    Classical or modern, I have to say that "Inferno" was one of the best songs I`ve ever heard performed by an orchestra, and I`ve been performing in and going to concerts for eight years now. I would love to hear the other three. Do you know if there are any albums that all four might be on?

    Yes. Inferno was indeed an amazing piece. It sounds better when it`s got both the band and orchestra parts to it. It really adds a whole new depth to the pieces.

    All four pieces are on a CD, however there are other pieces on there by Robert W. Smith as well.

    The CD is called "The Divine Comedy - Symphonic Band Works of Robert W. Smith"

    The pieces are all performed by the George Mason University Wind Ensemble.

    This was the only CD I could find with all four on there. It has some other pieces worth listening to as well, so it would be worth it, in my opinion at least.

    I hope you enjoy the pieces when you hear them.

    That`s sickeningly good.
    Should have played "Take on Me" by Ah Ha. That would have been even better.

    lol exactly what I was gonna say. I wonder how he saw past all that hair o.o?

    You guys think he is nice sure the tune was nice but 1)horrible posture 2)That bow is ruined 3)he looked like a godd*mn bum and 4)The violin`s value plummeted as soon as he looked at the noble instrument

    Mostly I`m impressed at his bow control. Of all the things I`m good at with violin, spiccatto is not one of them, after a measure or two the bouncing starts to escalate until the bow wants to bounce right out of my hand. I was insanely inpressed by him control of the spiccatto during "Smooth Criminal," even if he does have to buy a new bow every month.

    okaaaaay, Ravenhaft, you`re taking this waaaaay too seriously

    yeah, so his posture needed some work, but so what if he didn`t look very put together? he plays well

    and woohoo, he needs to get a new bow. whats the big deal? its his money, let him ruin a bow for the sake of makin music the way he wants to.

    if that doesnt work for you, fine. don`t listen to him. simple as that

    THAT right there made my day. I play viola and I was shocked by how good this guy is. I wonder where he got the music. He could make a fortune just playing on the street with a tin can. That thing would be filled with money faster than you could say "This guy`s so good, I`m going to give him a twenty."

    spiccato isn`t too hard, however i think the technique he`s doing has a lot more vertical bounce than spiccato to create the rough percussion effect. so i have to say i`m impressed, the more force you put in the more the bow bounces back, so he really has a lot of control and skill. especially to keep it even and consistent for so long.
    also, i don`t think the he desperately needs a hair cut. he`s in a freaking bar playing 80`s music. was he supposed to dress up and slick his hair back? it doesn`t matter that he looked like a bum or had bad posture, it was okay for the low-key chill situation he was performing in.

    anyway, i think this is pretty dam good, considering he probably came up with the arrangement himself. it had a lot of character and he utilized lots of unique sounds a string instrument can make to bring it as close to the originals as possible. i think he`s great.
