I ran across a few interesting version of the Super Mario Brothers theme song and so I thought I’d share what I found. Some of the people in these videos are phenomenally talented… and some are just plain silly. Enjoy!
1. Jean Baudin plays the theme on an 11-string bass guitar. What!? I didn’t even know there was such a thing as an 11 string bass guitar. Amazing video; amazing guitarist.
2. This beatboxing flute player (whatisproject.org) presents a very cool and different version of the theme. You have to see this one.
3. Super drum version by Andrea Vadrucci. This guys isn’t actually playing the theme (drums don’t have that many tones) but he plays along with the music. I included it because this guys playing will blow your mind.
4. Super Mario Brothers Theme played on a Solid State Musical Tesla Coil built by Joe DiPrima and Oliver Greaves and the Austin, TX Chapter of The Geek Group
5. Zack Kim plays the theme on 2… yes, count em two… electric guitars. Very cool.
6. Guy playing the theme on an Ocarina. Very interesting.
7. 12 year old boy plays the theme on a ukulele. He really gets down and into it too.
8. By perfectly lining up a bunch of glass bottles, this guy drives an R/C car armed with a small metal extension and is able to play the theme. Very cool.
9. Giuseppe Motta plays the theme on the electric guitar using an eight finger tapping method.
10. Guy playing the theme on the piano blind-folded. There are plenty of blind piano players in the world so I’m not as impressed, but thought I’d include it anyway.
11. Okay, eleven is not ten but here is a bonus video. Oldy but goody version by an a capella choir.
