One-Man Band Plays 8 Instruments To Create The Perfect Bob Marley Cover

May 12, 2015 By Archit Tripathi
How's this for a one-man band? Steve-san Onotera, better known as samuraiguitarist on YouTube, recently recorded this video of him playing "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley. He is seen simultaneously playing three ukuleles, a snare drum, a tambourine, an organ, a bass and a harmonica. According to Onotera, "Making this was by far the hardest thing I have ever done musically. My brain hurts."

Born in Manitoba, Canada, Onotero spent years "honing his discipline under the study of the country's most powerful musical senseis." He is a multi-instrumentalist who claims to be able to play just about anything that makes noise, but his most notable instrument is probably the Japanese shamisen, a traditional three-stringed instrument somewhat akin to a banjo.
