Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe (Keyboard Cover)


Recording, editing and uploading this video happened in one single day. I don't know why but the day before I had the inspiration of playing Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe on my keyboard, perhaps because if the familiar syncopation of strings that symbolizes this song.

I took a little while to practice to play on my YAMAHA PSR-S900 with bass on left hand and piano on right hand with drum accompaniment, which I selected "TrancePop" as the style because I think it resembles the one in the original song the most.

Seriously, it's quite challenging to play the syncopated bass movement on the left hand and main melody on the right hand, plus, from time to time I have to press the fill in buttons and ending button. So busy right?!

I deliberately wore singlet because the main actor in the MV did so (I know I'm not as handsome as he is). And if you don't know why I chose to hold a piece of paper with "XOXO" at the bottom right corner, watch the MV!! Haha...

It took me a number of trials to successfully record a relatively perfect one, which was so irritating. I admit that I had a hardtime conquering the syncopated bass against the syncopated melody.

I think the result was good, hope you enjoy! (Thumbs up if you notice the wordings on my bed)

PS: If you think watching with the keyboard being upside down is gonna drive you dizzy, turn your monitor or laptop upside down. :)
