Have You Seen This? The chopstick piano

FUNKY INSTRUMENT TOWN — I love music. I love to listen to music, I love to see music played live, and I love to pretend to know how to play music.

For these reasons, I am often drawn to these videos that showcase some impressive musical skills. The general public usually isn't quite so interested — based off the lower page views these stories get— but I have a feeling you're going to like this one.

Sami Elu plays a beautiful tune on recycled instruments and chopsticks. Yes, chopsticks.

The piano he's playing is a chopstick piano and despite what you think it sounds amazing. Elu is playing more beautiful music with used eating utensils than I can with a $12,000 guitar.

The song is hypnotic and you'll think your eyes are playing tricks on you because there is no way that beautiful melodic tune is coming from that "junk." Well deal with it, because it totally is.

Check out this video and start saving those used chopsticks because that's a lot cheaper than a baby grand.
