Despite its title, Pharrell Williams’ 2014 hit “Happy” evokes a range of emotions among people. Maybe you liked it when it came out but got burned out after months of hearing it nonstop. Maybe you never liked it. Maybe it actually made you mad.
However you feel about the song, take a listen to the guitar tandem Rodrigo y Gabriela in the video below as they cover it with John Butler. As two of the freshest fingerstyle guitarists in the genre today, Rodrigo y Gabriela bring a level of virtuoso excitement to everything they play, whether it’s Metallica’s “Orion,”Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” or even “Happy.”
The duo are currently on tour in the U.S., and you can get all the tour date information at their site, RodGab.com.
