“Respect!” I often read that as a comment on Youtube videos – those of really talented musicians and this video is one that I’d really comment that on.

I have a deep appreciation for those who can play the piano but deeper for those who can learn a music piece and can play it by ear.

According to wiki, “play by ear” can mean any of these: One, improvisation, the act of inventing all or part of a process as it is performed. Play by ear may also refer to an attempt in re-playing a song using a specific instrument without using any guidelines but the original song itself.

Two, learning music by ear, a term used to describe learning how to play a musical piece purely by listening to a rendition of the piece alone, without the aid of printed material.

I personally know one who can play by ear but haven’t heard of him for the longest time. I was always in awe hearing the guy play the guitar…he has a good voice to boot too! For a frustrated musician like me, I can only admire such talents from a distance.
