Cellphone Waltz

A few days ago, the guys at Gizmodo posted about this waltz created with the Nokia ringtone as its theme. In the comments, someone pointed out the actual song that Nokia ripped on.

I think I like the piano waltz better.


There’s nothing quite like Pandora to get your musical curiosity flowing. I know I was just saying how acoustic guitar needs to be watched, but the music itself can be so transcendental. If you couldn’t guess, I’m listening to my acoustic radio station on Pandora now, what better way to motivate a Friday afternoon?

Andy McKee

I can’t remember the first time I heard him, but I believe it was on a forum that I frequent. Rylynn wasn’t the first song that I heard, but it was the one that hooked me on fingerstyle acoustic. I haven’t really branched too far into the acoustic guitar genre — my library only consists of Andy McKee, Don Ross, and Antoine Dufour. I don’t think it’s a function of me not liking the genre enough, I enjoy it immensely. I think it’s because, much like classical, it’s a genre that has to be witnessed. The music itself can be deceptively simple, but the way in which it’s performed and all the nuances that go into it make video or live performances more enjoyable than simply listening. Drifting, I think, is the epitome of this ideology, and was my first song that I heard in this style.
