Folking up OneRepublic with a miniature banjo!

This is my second video of this series 🙂 The general idea is to take a pop song and put a folk twist on it. For this one I decided to use a completely different instrument, the miniature banjo, or the banjolele, which is a cross between a banjo and ukelele! The process was as follows: I found the OneRepublic song, Counting Stars, in the morning, learnt the lyrics and how to play it on this new instrument that morning, then filmed it in the afternoon. The song was previously unknown to me so it was an experience trying to do all that in one day! Plus the added difficulty of playing an instrument that you are not familiar with. I thoroughly enjoyed myself though! If you want to see any pop song “folked up”, let me know!
