Sammy Jankiss : This just proves that I'll listen to anyone play anything as long as it's Africa by Toto!

WalkaCrookedLine : A harp, a guitar, and a piano had a three-way, their lovechild became known as the harpejji. Mathieu's cover of "Africa" is outstanding, really makes me want to jump up and dance.

Preacher Slocum : Never heard of this instrument before and, frankly, the first few bars had me thinking... meh. I am glad I stuck it out though, and I was amazed at the level of dedication it must take to master this thing. Great job!

Timmeyto Soup | (Timmifutzelchen) : Hope these things become popular and thus affordable someday. I don't like the way you play a regular guitar. I play the piano and I loved learning Violin and Saxophone, but I had a day 1 beef with the guitar. This seems like it would be the "guitar for pianists".

Tremolux Man : I'd love to hear you kick up the reverb and crank out some Surf classics.

Le Chant de l' Albatros : It is an amazing job you've done here, but i feel the chorus to be quite frustrating. You have great bass notes on your left hand during the verse, and, in my opinion, it lacks bass during the chorus, since you "only" play chords, and your right hand is used to add rythm. I felt compelled to comment to say that, because everything else was great !

CabbitSD : I can't even listen to the original now.

BECKY BARTON : Im getting crazy abou this! Ive got a misshapen little finger that won't let me play guitar anymore. THIS is what I need!

degrande707 : *BUT CAN IT DJENT?*

Louise Burke : It sounds like if Milky Chance were to cover Africa

DJFox211 : This is amazing! Very well done and I hope they become popular, and cheaper one day. I sure as hell can't afford it but I'd like to. Would you be willing to do a version of Final Fantasy13 "Eternal Love"? I think it'd be amazing to hear on a Harpejji, and this is your best video of things like this. So well done, thank you for such a piece.

phoenix21studios : This is infinity better than any type of launch pad.

Landon Vincent : 2:58-3:16 best part imo

Janet Arnold : I love this instrument! Too bad they cost so damned much!

bien Flores : wow. 1 hater. how can you hate this?

Panaform : Sounds like 8BIT

Marquis Projects : All the NES games must have been recorded on one of these.

Matthew Parkin : Your expression and nuances are really nice

druidboy76 : $3500 for that thing.

Marryvick Manzano : "I guess lorraine's down in Africa"

razrv3lc : This makes me think of an autoharp played with a distortion pedal lol

NilsOfficial / Low Fidelity : Maaaaaaaaan ... great work!

Benjamin Liles : You know I find this instrument truly amazing! I can play this on guitar, but this looks like artwork to me! If I had a webcam I'd show off my playing skills, but I do not. This takes a great deal of skill, however, and I am very impressed. Keep it up, Matthieu! Great video.

Michael Feast : That's not how the chorus goes. You're just playing the chords and not the melody line. Everything else is wonderful.

Matt Winstead : Wow, I was thinking the same exact thing. No longer can I hear the original ever again as the poster before me said.

Magnus Hjort : This sounds so 60's for some reason.

racenieminen : I don't know how to play single one instrument, but im glad someone knows!

Marco Billi : ma quando mai ti vedi strumenti"fuori dai canoni classico comderni",ho provato a suonare la marimba(carina),lo xilofono,conosciuto come glockenglispel(non lo so pronunciare),mi piacerebbe che tanti di noi imparassimo a suonare strumenti diversi dai soliti,sarebbe una bella esperienza (questo harpejj lo trovo curioso) by M.B.S(Marko Billy Sam)

Razsteroid : Neat idea but this thing has a tone like twanging rubber bands, or perhaps like a MIDI patch for nylon guitar.

Emily : I hear the drums echoing tonight But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation She's coming in, 12:30 flight The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation I stopped an old man along the way Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you" It's gonna take a lot to take me away from you There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never had The wild dogs cry out in the night As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company I know that I must do what's right As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never had Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa (I bless the rain) I bless the rains down in Africa (I bless the rain) I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa (Ah, gonna take the time) Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Stanley Denning : Nice rendition. I can't put my finger on it, but something is missing.

puppyxdogxeyes : Saw this posted on reddit but I thought I'd come here to say well done

Duxx Skuxx : 1:15 *Satisfied*

Bill : I think it's cool and all, but I have to say that it sounds a lot like a clavinet but seems to be much harder to play. I'm kind of thinking, _why not just play a clavinet_?

Tom DREVET : Formidable

Greg Jones : Hey Mathieu, I am impressed, not only with this but with all of your work.   Does the secondary layer proceed throughout the piece or is there a point at which you continue without the recorded second layer?  My Harpejji should be here within the next two months.

The Ryan's Den : Stunning....saw this as a suggested view on Facebook....very cool!

Krisco Dangus : Is this just like all hammer ons on a guitar?

MANA : 3:20

Vincebus : Sounds like a sega genesis

Bjorn Bols : Awesome playing

Ali Aydın : buralar deliler gibi değerlenecek rezzzzzzzz

Inquisitor Christopher : You should do Secret of Mana - Into The Thick of It

Lulubelle Padieu : It's my favorite song, thank you for playing it, I can listen to it over and over <3

CWM- ASSASSIN : Looks like a flat and fancy guitar lol

Sandra Bargery : Wonderful still waiting for a lotto win though - sigh

Laclock Bulok : Magnifique !! j'adore :D

Derek Williams : Remarkable!

Ilya Gnezdin : Super
