Thanks for watching my Launchpad / Acoustic Guitar Cover of Avicii's Wake Me Up. I had intended for this to be my 50,000 subscriber video, but so many more of you joined before I was close to finishing! So, here's to 68,242 :D I'll give a brief description of what's going on in the song below. Additionally, this project file WILL be able to be played on a single Launchpad, So don't panic ;D

The guitar part was inspired by Antoine Dufour and is played in a tapping style. (The bandanna helps reduce unwanted string noise)
If you're interested in this type of guitar you HAVE to check out Candyrat Records: http://www.youtube.com/user/rpoland/videos

Next the Launch Control Is used to fade on LED's, but most importantly trigger background sections in the song as this is quite difficult to play every part at once.

After the yellow lights are faded on, the vocals are played by "painting" the LED's on the Launchpad.

For the drumming section, any button within the LED rectangle will trigger one sound so it doesn't matter where you hit, as long as its on the correct half of the Launchpad you'll get the right sound.



Don't ever give up ;D
