    "The Weight" played simultaneously around the world

    From yesterday, another "Song Around the World" from Playing for Change. Robbie Robertson, Ringo, and many many more.

    Enjoy!

    Very enjoyable!

    Pretty funny that the drummer wanted to know what key they were playing in . . .

    Quite nice, as usual Ringo (the comedian) played just the right amount. He added a few easy licks that were not there originally. The drums were tuned nicer than what you normally hear out of many drummers. All the instrumental parts, very nice..

    Beautiful. So encouraging. Music is certainly the universal language, and this song lends itself to the variety of instruments and voices.

    Why aren't videos like this front and center in the daily news media? I'd love to see one of them run this as a main story some day.
