#39: "Cello Wars" by Steven Sharp Nelson.
Pin ItI have had four people send me the following video (thanks Sam, Mark, Chris, and Emily!) to put on Mormon Wookiee. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Steven Sharp Nelson, he is the most gifted cellist I have ever seen (plus, he has a fantastic sense of humor and is an all-around nice guy). He often performs with fellow Utah musical Jedi, John Schmidt. Together, they have formed "The Piano Guys". If you ever get the chance to see them perform in concert, I absolutely recommend it. Diane and I were able to see them live at the Sandy Ampitheater last year, and we had a blast. Without further ado, enjoy the Piano Guys' epic "Cello Wars"! (And after that, make sure to check out all their other great work at http://thepianoguys.com/music/. In particular, I would recommend "Love Story Taylor Swift Meets Coldplay Viva La Vida". Bar none, it is one of my all-time favorite songs).
