in this video i play the piano and my dad is there too. the piano i am playing is like 100 years old, no joke. i think my great great grandma got it as a confirmation present or something.

Gus Johnson plays all sorts of characters, from Mitchell Robbins to JK Rowling to some guy in God's Country to Imbiamba Jombes to filming videos with his mom to pillow guy to the my pool guy to the Gus & Eddy Podcast to small town reviews to how they use shotguns in movies to the tough kid growing up to your friend who has a knife to spotify ad guy to the how they use shotgun to the gus johnson shotgun... I don't know why I am writing this in third person. I am Gus. I wrote this. Also subscribe to the Gus & Eddy Podcast please. Eddy Burback and I make it and it's ok. My brother is Sven Johnson, that guy's alright. Guys, if you put all this silly stuff in the description, it helps your videos. isn't that wild?

Thanks for watching and sharing! Don't stab people. I'll see you later.

  • thank you for following me into the 50s now follow me on twitter or i will not play any more shooby dooby music ever again

    • it looks like C, Am, F, G tho....

    • Please play it again

    • ahhh haaa, fuck twitter

    • I'm a big fan of 50s music and at first was thinking, "what's this sketch going to be about?" Then as soon as you started playing the piano I immediately started singing 50 songs in my head that all sound like that.

    • Earth angel

  • anybody else read the paper as: CAt GF? just me? ok

  • only 10 years?

  • Gus's dad has the same intonation as Gus and Sven, it's uncanny

  • As a fan of the Ink Spots I feel attacked

  • Gus

  • Sam Cooke been real quiet

  • your dad reminds me of that judge from Night Court

  • BLUES: Am I a joke to you?

  • don’t forget the 1 6 2 5 chord progression

  • When your piano is so out of tune it’s literally fallen down a whole tone 😬

  • What a singer same rhythm different lyrics

  • I may have missed the details somewhere but when exactly is the rest of this Ken Burns documentary being released? We can’t not stan for Dad Johnson now that we know of the impact he had on music as we know it.

  • Nothing has changed really

  • Can confirm.

  • The set designers are amazing i really thought i was watching a 50s record lable

  • the ink spots:

  • I was totally expecting some Hank Williams joke

  • Not discovered Bop yet Gus?

  • THE G AND F ARE SWAPPED THUS IS NOT OK

  • Gus wrote C-A-G-F but played C-A-F-G.

  • not sure about your dads acting skills but he has very satisfying enunciation here.. maybe its the sound guy but i love his lines lol

  • not to be that guy but, tune your piano man 🤣

  • Lol

  • You played C - am - F - G and wrote C - am - G - F on the paper... I just had to say it lol sorry

  • HIRE ONE WOMAN INVENT JAZZ

  • The thumbnail says C, Am, G, F, but I'm pretty sure he played C, Am, F, G.

  • i ain’t mad at that

  • Earth angel in a nutshell

  • 10 (COUGH) 70 years

  • His father is really a natural in these skits

  • " she was my babbeeeeee, but he stole my lovers heart"

  • Ouch... 90s music fan here

  • Sheesh, Sven needs a shave.

  • Who need history in school when you have Gus Johnson?

  • Dmaj Emin Gmaj Amin That’s my go to chord progressions. Always D mixolydian as well.

  • Definitely can’t say any different for today’s music!

  • What song was that

  • Hahah I love that he has INVENT JAZZ on his to do list

  • 0:12

  • His father looks exactly like his bother it's like Gus was adopted

  • There is a sign that says 50s record label 😅

  • They just dont make em like they used to.

  • I don't wanna know how long his shorts would be...

  • Slap like now

  • I like a lot of your little gems; this is one such one. 👍🏻👍🏻

  • Earth Angel, Earth Angel…

  • as someone who listens to fifty's everyday, this is incorrect, there's too many chords

  • It was catchy though

  • ok but good golly miss molly is a great song

  • Just put in a different key you'll be golden

  • Don't forget the part where they repeat the first verse but they speak it instead of singing it

  • I think the purpose of this video was to show that back in the 50's, accuracy didn't matter as long as heart was in it and autotune wasn't. He nailed it.

  • Are you trying to tell me Earth Angel doesn't slap?

  • it is pretty tho

  • amo gus johnson

  • Gus: Makes a funny video about how all songs were the same in the 50s Literally All The Comments: HE PLAYED IT WRONG GUYS AM I NOT THE ONLY ONE SEEING THIS??????

  • The Ink Spots took your advice, though they were from the 40s

  • the boomer anthem

  • But... but the F & G are backwards on your sheet music :( it should be C, Am, F, G. Gus why :(

    • @Stunžėnas Nojus We gotta give him SOME slack, I mean he IS making garbage here lol

    • You bring that up but not how it's in the wrong key?

  • This is totally like the ink spots who used the same notes in the intro but just with different keys

  • that's earth angel, right?

  • It literally just says 50’s record label

  • who else thought of the cod 2 zombie tranzit song

  • what music is playing in the end of your videos?

  • I legit thought he was playing transit

  • The OMFG community in a nutshell

  • 50s music is awesome

  • How they wrote songs since the early 2000’s: Love you, I love you, Love you, Love you, OOOOOOOOOOOO

  • MUSIC STUFF - hire Pete Best (This kid is goin' places!) - lead-line the studio - hire one woman - invent jazz

  • first

  • hey man that's not fair sometimes they played it in other keys too

  • Sounds legit.

  • Bread

  • It was years before that they stuck with just C, G and F, adding the Am in there was pretty progressive, no pun intended.

  • B-but... he played C, Am, F, G (not G, F at the end.)

  • It sounds just like that one song from the 50s!! 🤔

  • As a musician I promise you this is accurate

  • Who else was hoping he would keep jamming that?

  • i just found this channel but i’m in love with both the skits and the longer videos this is a goldmine

  • First time I saw Alien and the title started to appear, I thought it was going to be called 1 6 4 5

  • I VI IV V IVever

  • Best music is from the 30s and 40s

  • What is the song that he plays?

  • Take our the transition, place the progression in a modern context and 10 years becomes 70 years

  • I hope they invented jazz.

  • That paper Gus' dad was writing on in the beginning (0:02) read: MUSIC STUFF - HIRE PETE BEST (this kid is goin' places!) - LEAD-LINE THE STUDIO - HIRE ONE WOMAN - INVENT JAZZ

  • *next 70 years

  • “Hire Pete Best, kids going places” 😂😭

  • Doo wop is epic and nobody can disagree.

  • I keep unironically singing this song now

  • I think he actually plays Bb Gm Eb F, the piano is out of tune

    • I agree it is out of tune tho

    • 0:12 that’s a C Major chord, not Bb, and the other chords wouldn’t go with it if they were Gm, Eb F

  • That was actually really catchy

  • Gus is SUS

  • I mean.. that's how pop producers still make music to this day

    • Yeah, it’s a different chord progression tho, same concept tho

  • Those notes he played reminded me of bohemian rhapsody

  • It’s all because of simply piano

  • Sven is literally a carbon copy of papa Johnson. Insane

  • This is so accurate.... 🤣🤣🤣

  • 0:02 MUSIC STUFF: - Hire Pete Best (this kid is goin' places!) - Lead-line the studio - Hire one woman - Invent Jazz
