  • Hallo, hallooooo!

  • (both) We're wearing the same shirt.

  • Nice!

  • Guess what?

  • You're still out of tune.

  • "Yeah, but Brett and Eddy,"

  • "do you guys play in tune?"

  • We don't.

  • - That's why we're wearing it. - Yeah.

  • Alright, today we are going to play a...

  • a game.

  • Now you might be thinking...

  • "You guys are music channel."

  • "Why are you a gaming channel?"

  • We're not.

  • - Yeah. - Don't worry. We're music channel.

  • We're classical musicians.

  • we wanted to test

  • how would we do with rhythm games.

  • "We..."

  • We're gonna see does having musical training

  • give you an advantage or not?

  • And we're also going to be seeing...

  • I guess, as musicians, what we think of these games.

  • We've never played these games before, by the way.

  • - Yeah. - 'Cause we're busy practicing.

  • So of course, we're gonna start with something easy.

  • It's a phone app.

  • It's a game called Piano Tiles.

  • Ooh...

  • Yeah. I've never actually played it.

  • I just downloaded, and played...

  • one level, the first level.

  • It's pretty funny.

  • - Do you wanna try it? The first level. - I'll do it first. Alright, I'll go first.

  • Oh! Oh!

  • Bring it on!

  • What the hell?!

  • Oh...!

  • Woo....

  • I got it, guys.

  • Practice.

  • Practice.

  • 40 hours every day!

  • Yeah!

  • Ling Ling!

  • Viola gang!

  • Oh... Ohh...!

  • It is!

  • - Dude, it's got harder than the one I did last time! - Yeah.

  • What the hell?!

  • Oh, it's a harder version.

  • That was so fast!

  • You let down the piano gang!

  • Dude, I thought it was gonna finish!

  • No, this is a harder version.

  • I guess it's good when you got nothing else to do

  • when the whole world shut down.

  • When you're in quarantine,

  • and you don't have a piano at home.

  • I don't know. I found like...

  • it was weird that...

  • the points was just based on you hitting the tile.

  • - Yeah. - And so you could actually play with any rhythm.

  • You know like most rhythm games, right?

  • There's actually a line where you have to hit it on the beat.

  • - Yes. - Whereas this one is like...

  • as long as it's on the screen...

  • - And you gotta hit it. - Which is why sometimes it's early,

  • - sometime it's late. - Yeah.

  • - but it still counts. - Yeah.

  • It has nothing to do with an actual piano...

  • - It should just be called- - ...pattern.

  • It should just be called...

  • Alright, my turn.

  • So I can be like...

  • Whoa... Dude, that...

  • Dude, it's...

  • It's like hip-hop twinkle classical music.

  • When you don't have any rhythm.

  • Yeah, this is like

  • when you have no rhythm and you're playing...

  • Alright, I'll try to play it in time.

  • Oh my god. It's actually hard!

  • Yeah, they speed up as well.

  • Oh my god! What the f***?!

  • Dude, even Liszt can't play this.

  • Holy sh**!

  • Oh, it's getting faster!

  • Dude, my eyes hurt.

  • A ha ha ha!

  • Oh, it's too-AAAHHAAHHAAHHH!!

  • AHHHAAH!!

  • AAHAHAHH

  • AAHHAH!!

  • AHH!!AHHH!!

  • AHAHAHHHAH!!

  • AAHAHHhh...

  • I think you beat me though.

  • I think I did, but I think it's 'cause I was prepared.

  • - I knew it was getting fast. - Oh, getting fast-

  • Yeah, 'cause I was-

  • Yeah, you're kinda going with the flow.

  • It's more of a reaction thing.

  • - Yeah, it's more like- - Not... it's not a music- I mean...

  • playing an instrument, there's reaction.

  • But you...

  • - It's a different type of reaction. - Yeah.

  • I guess this is a bit like sight reading.

  • Pachelbel's Canon?

  • - Up to you. Yeah, let's do Canon. - Yeah...

  • Oh yeah, you need to hold it.

  • It's very elaborate.

  • It's like...

  • Whoa.

  • Oh...

  • But, like, it still keeps going.

  • - Dude, this is so trippy. - That's so annoying.

  • Yeah.

  • 'Cause that's gonna slow me down later.

  • Oh!

  • Ohh!!

  • Ohhhh...!

  • Dude, why is this so fast already?

  • This is harder than I actual play a piano

  • 'cause it's like...

  • It's going in wrong directions.

  • *shrieks*

  • Yeah, that was tricky 'cause you're playing-

  • Nah, I'm just making excuses.

  • Oh god.

  • - I wanna do like, do piano fingering. - Yeah.

  • I was like "Nah nah nah, I can't."

  • Man, I never had so much like,

  • excitement playing Pachelbel's Canon.

  • - Dude, the arrangement is weird. - Yeah, like, it freaks you out,

  • 'cause you think you played a wrong note.

  • Yeah.

  • - And I can't read ahead, like, sight reading - Yeah.

  • - 'cause the screen is only so big. - It's limited.

  • So I can't see what's coming up there until like...

  • - But then again, there's only 4 notes, like, 4 tiles. - Mhm.

  • Oh...

  • Oh!

  • Oh! Ohh...

  • Ugh, my eyes hurt!

  • AHH!!!

  • That's what I mean!

  • You're like...

  • You know you're perfect, you're like-

  • You just put in the wrong-

  • - My fingers are just too fat. - Yeah. Yeah.

  • - Two Stars! - Whoa...

  • Oh yeah!

  • - Alright. - Should we do one last one?

  • Let's do one last one.

  • Debussy.

  • - Alright, I think I'm gonna do Debussy. - Jingle...

  • - 'cause I like Debussy. - Oh, Debussy? Okay, okay.

  • I'm gonna pay with my...

  • in-game musical note currency.

  • That's too fast forverie!

  • Ha ha!

  • It's meant to be like that,

  • but then if I do that, it's gonna run outta screen.

  • So I'm playing the left hand.

  • Those are wrong notes!

  • - I think these people that made it... don't know keys. - Why did they change it?

  • Yeah, they keep changing the notes.

  • It's like, keep it simple, guys.

  • Wrong notes.

  • Dude, these are just semiquavers.

  • - Oh, this feels so wrong! - It does not s-

  • - It does not sound like the piece at all. - I know, right?

  • - It's too... beaty and like... - Yeah, off.

  • Oh my god! Musicality is gone with Piano Tiles.

  • Yeah.

  • - The only thing piano is a midi, and the pieces they use. - No rubato. Yeah.

  • Oh!

  • Oh, that's so nasty!

  • Let's block the ears.

  • That's not how the piece goes!

  • - Block you ears, block your ears. - Ugh...

  • What was that?

  • Oh my god. That was the worst...

  • ...ending.

  • Dude, those notes are just like...

  • It's not even the piece.

  • - Oh, you finished! - Ooh, 502!

  • - Whoa! - Oh, oh, what is this?!

  • - Oh, it's my money! My in-game currency! - Oh...

  • Oh... In-game currency!

  • Get it all! Ooh...

  • I got 44.

  • Wow...

  • What?! Oh, it keeps going?

  • - Did it just go again? Wha- I'm so confused! - Yeah, it goes again.

  • - This is the same thing, but it's faster now. - It's faster.

  • Oh, dude...

  • It sounds so bad!

  • This is...

  • - This is not right at all. - This is a prime example of why...

  • - playing fast is not always good. - Yeah.

  • If you can Piano Tile slowly...

  • This is going like wack.

  • My fingers hurt.

  • - Do you wanna take over? - Nah.

  • - Oh, WHAT! WHAT!? WO- ****!! - Going fast- It sped up! It sped-

  • Okay, wait, focus.

  • It sped up!

  • Ha ha ha! F***!

  • It's going faster...!

  • Focus.

  • Dude, this is such a pointless game.

  • - It's eye training, and reflex training. - Yeah!

  • What's the point?

  • It's for advertisement revenue for the app developers.

  • Dude...

  • Ow, my eyes actually hurt from this sh**.

  • Oh my god, this doesn't s-

  • I almost want to like, **** up.

  • - But I don't want to **** up. - Dude... yeah.

  • AH AH!

  • LIke, when you press a wrong note,

  • it flashes red.

  • - Yeah. - And then they play it this loud.

  • "BAM!"

  • It's like...

  • If you can press piano tiles,

  • you can press the subscribe button.

  • - Ooh! Please... - Subscribe.

  • Alright, I think consensus is that

  • - there's no relation to classical music or music at all. - It's not related. Not really.

  • Piano Tiles, the only thing that's related is just...

  • - the midi piano file. - Yeah.

  • And maybe at the end it goes "pff!"

  • I was gonna say maybe rhythm

  • would play a good part in rhythm games,

  • - but this has no rhythm. - This has no rhythm.

  • 'Cause if you play in a different rhythm,

  • - the game doesn't even register, right? - Yup.

  • - Yeah. - It doesn't know.

  • Well, there you go!

  • There you go, guys.

  • Musicians now gotta go back to practice.

  • Please like and subscribe,

  • - and see you guys next time. - Yeah.

  • - Liszt, you better watch out! - Oh, guess what?

  • Yeah, guess what? You're still out of tune.

  • That's right.
