Discovering various covers of popular singers’ songs has become an ordinary concept on YouTube these days. However, this scenario is a bit different—primarily because it’s not quite a cover, or songs from a singer. Guitarist Jacob Brody has an alternative approach.
In the YouTube description, Brody explains, “I learned these songs by ear and decided to record my interpretations.” Brody plays a mix of learned and improvised notes along to Chance The Rapper’s entire discography, all in one long take.
In the video, Chance’s songs play while Brody improvises and adds his own unique twist to the rhythm—making listeners hear each song from a new perspective. In the past, Brody has also played the full discographies for other artists such as Kanye West, Tyler, the Creator, and more.
