Eric Stanley: Violinist

Finally, I’ve gotten around to writing this post about Eric Stanley, an immensely talented violinist who I stumbled across on YouTube.  In the video that got me hooked on Eric, his description of the video says he woke up at 6 in the morning and just felt like playing some music.  Check out his idea of just “some music”…

I really dig how he can take a song and find a way to incorporate the violin into it and I especially like what he does at around the 3:30 mark of this next video, which should be more in line with traditional violin enthusiasts…

And, as if being an incredible violinist wasn’t enough, he also plays the piano…

I’ll close this post with a quote by Eric:

“Trying to be better than someone else is a pure waste of time. Strive to be better than you were yesterday.” ~Eric Stanley
