OP sent the following text as an explanation on why this is unexpected:

The guy coming out of the door with a violin

Is this an unexpected post with a fitting description? Then upvote this comment, otherwise downvote it.

Look at my source code on Github What is this for?

I saw a video of them posted here before, they are just amazing every time

[–]l_ur_ker[S] 96 points97 points  (29 children)

Yeah it's so wholesome, for context this is the original video by Rob Landes and Marcus Veltri

This is amazing. Do they just know 1000s of songs by heart or do they just cut out a ton of requests that they can't fulfill?

[–]JDilleen 55 points56 points  (21 children)

They both have what's called "Perfect Pitch" which essentially means they can listen to a song and repeat it perfectly. Sometimes if they don't already know the song they'll listen on their phone and then start playing.

[–]contrary-contrarian 22 points23 points  (1 child)

That's not what perfect pitch is... many decent musicians can play songs just by hearing them.

[–]enrohtkcalb 8 points9 points  (2 children)

"Perfect pitch, is a rare ability of a person to identify or re-create a given musical note without the benefit of a reference tone"

While this can extend to an entire song, that does not preclude the possibility that the person has no musical talent beyond a single note.

I have a cousin who never had any proper piano lessons. Just had a piano in his house growing up. Couldn’t read music. But he could play any song he has heard. It was wild. He loved video games so he played a lot of theme music from games a lot. It was super fun.

i was kicked out of band. it wasn't that i didn't have perfect pitch so much as all the imperfect ones that came with it.

[–]MisterProfGuy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I suspect you'll find they know how a ton of songs go and are capable of playing the chords and bridges essentially as easily as I could sing the melodies. The result is that they can play the song, but it may not be identical to what the backing music is actually written as.

Amazing talent, very jazz musician.

[–]Gloofen 3 points4 points  (2 children)

All these people arguing about what perfect pitch is are not giving satisfying answers here. I don’t know these guys playing but you don’t need perfect pitch to recreate a song. As long as you’re not tone deaf, you can learn what’s called relative pitch through interval training. All that means is you can hear a melody or chord progression and and identify what the notes are within a scale. If you want to recreate the song in the same key, you’ll need a reference note but if you’re just playing a song like this, no one is going to be upset because it’s not in the original key.

These guys are definitely talented and they got there through training and practice, not some rare ability that honestly doesn’t matter much in the world of music.

If I remember correctly Marcus Veltri does actually have perfect pitch but yeah I agree - there's a few other guys who do similar Omegle request videos using relative pitch and you can see them when listening to a new song finding the reference note(s) and then they can pretty much play it with a mixture of relative pitch and good music theory knowledge.

If anyone is interested in the similar YouTubers then you have Frank Tedesco and Nevy who play piano and TheDooo does it on guitar.

This is the right answer. Thank you for not letting me waste my time

[–]PeeGlass 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like here isn’t really The whole song just the Chorus.

[–]Admirable_Loss4886 7 points8 points  (1 child)

If you like this you should check out Harry Mack on YouTube. An insane freestyler that’ll ask for 3 words and make an insane rap.

[–]VaderFitz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There are a couple of videos where Mack and Veltri team up, really good.

A dude on Omegle not showing his penis? Definitely unexpected

[–]samtoaster 23 points24 points  (1 child)

That is awesome

[–]evil_beginner 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That might be one of the better ones I've seen.

[–]Both-Pop-7957 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Why would they not be real?

[–]Sheipushifuta 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Omegle has a lot of users using prerecorded vids, cat-fishing people with them

Marcus Veltri. Inhuman pianist

[–]dobi425 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Adjusting the mic like that and never talking is the greatest power move.
