Only Human (Erhu & Keyboard Cover)

I believe 1 Litre no Namida (1リットルの涙) or literally "1 Litre of Tears" is one drama series that makes whoever that watches it cry. Especially when it comes to the ending theme, "Only Human", you'll feel the grief and sorrow experienced by the pity girl in the drama who suffered from the illness. Like me, who underwent two cornea transplant surgeries because of Keratoconus, has empathy in her.

Quite long ago I listened to the cello version of the song before, which is also in the soundtrack album. Since it's instrumental, I was thinking of making an erhu & keyboard cover for that instrumental soundtrack as well. And the result turned out to be great! Just because I used iPhone to record my erhu instead of taking the audio file right from the camera, like I did in the 三寸天堂 cover, that made me realize that it's not a good idea. However that requires me to listen to the soundtrack from my laptop and play the erhu, and my laptop was actually under my bed. But at least my effort was fruitful.

I hope you find it as touching as the cello version. Enjoy, like and subscribe!

  1. This music is so sad. You perform so well. I myself when watching this drama I felt like I had put myself in her situation. I cried and cried.
