Great Performances: Walk Off The Earth Performs With 5 People On One Guitar

This particular performance is not of the caliber I normally include in the Great Performances series, but the novelty of how it is being performed is worth observing. Walk Off The Earth is an Ontario-based independent contemporary band that specializes in inventive covers of popular songs and their own originals, This particular cover of "Somebody I Used to Know" by Goyte was shared with me on Google Plus. All five members of the band play one acoustic guitar, each taking a piece of the composition as their own. It's a very simple song going back and forth between D minor and C major in D dorian.


Their other material is equally as inventive and interesting, incorporating loop pedals and unconventional instruments. This kind of creativity is sorely needed in contemporary music, and whether or not they are ever signed by a major label is really immaterial. Be sure to visit their YouTube channel and check out the other innovative materials they have posted (fair warning: they have potty mouths).
