Shout out to Sheet Music Boss. Go check out and sub to their channel!-

Also go check out Grant from 3Blue1Brown. He the best explainer of complicated stuff I know (the buttery smooth delivery certainly doesn’t hurt)-

Cool piano animation by Jared Owen-

Finally, the piano in the video is from Edelweiss. Thanks to our friends at for helping to modify one of their Prodigy player systems to make this possible. We had to modify it so it could play Rush E and all the keys at once otherwise out of the box they can play about 30 keys at once. If you want more info, you can find it here-

P.S. No Chopstix were hurt in the filming of this video (i.e. he didn’t ACTUALLY catch fire).

I started a company called CrunchLabs where we build a toy together and then I teach you all the juicy physics for how it works. So if you want to learn to think like an engineer and have really fun time doing it, check out the current promotion where you get 2 FREE boxes at

You should also go subscribe to the CrunchLabs YouTube channel cause we’ve got some bangers in the pipeline-

Thanks to these folks for providing some of the music in the video:
