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.

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".

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

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

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

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.

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

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!

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

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!

Donk Rubbler : It's like the Stick, only better!

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

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)

Tom DREVET : Formidable

Matthew Parkin : Your expression and nuances are really nice

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.

Panaform : Sounds like 8BIT

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.

John W : This shit is straight fire

Bjorn Bols : Awesome playing

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

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

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

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

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

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

Derek Williams : Remarkable!

Jeffy Jeff : Nice!

Wesley Wagner : Make an acoustic one!

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

Ali Aydın : buralar deliler gibi değerlenecek rezzzzzzzz

Larry Ford : Awesome talent!

Mad Scientist Mike : 200th like :)

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

Vincebus : Sounds like a sega genesis

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

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

Hunkomuko Hyangla : Looks like a big keyboard but sounds beautiful

druidboy76 : $3500 for that thing.

degrande707 : *BUT CAN IT DJENT?*

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

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_?

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.

Laclock Bulok : Magnifique !! j'adore :D

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

Ilya Gnezdin : Super

Jerry CKeys : Great  !  Got to get me one !

Corbin Menius : Looks like a flat and fancy guitar lol

white rhino : Please Sir some more Harpejji...............

VGMrawk : That is so cool! I didn't even know this instrument existed! It's the perfect blend of piano and guitar...sounds good too. Excellent playing and song choice.
