Dan Newbie’s Freaking Amazing
Sometimes when you see something on Youtube you think, “pffffffft that’s not hard”. Then there are times that you see something you simply cannot believe is legitimate, and you have to truly marvel at the skill and ability of someone showcasing their talents in the show and tell that is Youtube.
Enter Dan Newbie. Dan Newbie is just like us, with a desire to showcase his nerdom while also demonstrating a “specific set of skills“. Mr. Newbie can make audio magic with his infinite supply of wine glasses, and patience. He’s covered Super Mario Bros, Zelda, Skyrim, and Game of Thrones theme songs by using wine glasses and striking them with pencils. Sounds simple right?
According to Dan Newbie when asked on YouTube, it takes 15 to 30 minutes to find the right pitch for EACH GLASS. Talk about dedication! Take into account the Super Mario Bros video, below, had 48 Wine Glasses, 2 pencils, a 1 frying pan, 7 microphones 2 cameras, this man has really put serious time and effort into making these videos look effortless.
8bitX salutes Dan Newbie for his efforts and endless dedication. We have experience editing audio & putting videos together and we realize what a monumental task this is given the instrument that Dan has chosen to play these classics! If you can, support Dan Newbie via his Patreon, which at the time of this writing has 8 contributors. Dan’s popular videos have over a million views! Side note, Dan is paying the royalty fees and licensing out-of-pocket for these songs. Huge props to Mr. Newbie, so once again if you can, support this rising artist in his efforts to bring about more covers and great songs!
