  1. Man that was super neat! I love the sax on top of it and that slow beat boxing too.

  2. Gives me some Kayo Dot/maudlin of the Well vibes 🙂

  3. That's just Biblical Chord Writing

    Let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth.

  4. I come back to this video every once in a while just to hear that movement at 1:35, so good.

  5. This was actually really great, cant wait to try it with someone.

  6. it's weird how almost all the chords you liked were chords with minor 2nds

  7. I'm stealing all the changes you guys didn't like. Thanks for the free ideas, suckers! 😛

  8. Did they ever develop this idea into a full song? I watched the whole vid twice and listened to the "song" twice more just for the pleasure of it.

  9. "Haikus are easy
    But sometimes they don't make sense

    – Adam's shirt

  10. Adam talked about stratification in one of his Q+A's, where as long as the notes are far apart from each other, it doesn't really matter if they're dissonant or not. That has to be the only reason why those clickbait chords sound ok.

  11. Great game. Just deliberation alone can help so much

  12. Sounds like the band Sleepytime gorilla museum…🤘 Awesome band btw

  13. Sounds a lot like Djavan! You guys should check it out

  14. I still wish this was turned into a full song

  15. Adam Neely looks a lot younger 5 years forward.

  16. Sounds like Derick Bailey. But this sounds better.

  17. "It's so romantic. You'll really find the One that way."
    Adam is on fire.

  18. this is such a cool idea and it sounded so interesting and actually worked really well

  19. Remember when this came out. Wild. Miss these two weirdos doin weird stuff but glad they’re still around makin their own weird stuff
