420 – Rick Beato (What Makes This Song Great?)

Rick Beato is a multi-instrumentalist, music teacher, producer, dad to Layla and Dylan, and host to three deaf animals (2 dogs and a cat). His YouTube show (What Makes This Song Great?) is the best guide to the magic and mystery of music I know. To get you started, here are links to three of my favorite videos on Rick’s channel:

— A proud dad being amazed by his son’s mind-blowing innate talent.

— Deconstructing Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition.”

— Deconstructing Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes.”
