Dave Grohl is no stranger to thinking outside of the box or breaking boundaries. Today, he released a video for a 23-minute long song where all of the instruments are played by him. The song “Play” includes 7 different instruments, all played by Dave and all played live completely through. That’s 23 minutes of recording per instrument. WOW!
The video has been released in a 2-part documentary form with the first few minutes taking a look at students learning how to play instruments and the last 23 minutes featuring “Play” in it’s entirety.
A statement with the video from the Foo Fighters page says:
When I take my kids to the place where they take their lessons, I see these rooms full of children that are really pushing themselves to figure this out. And even now, as a 49-year-old man, I’m still trying to figure it out… it’s not something that you ever truly master. You’re always chasing the next challenge, and you’re always trying to find a way to improve on what you’ve learned. – Dave Grohl
