David Archuleta on Guitar ~ Killing Us Softly

Posted by MT on Saturday, July 6, 2013

I recently ran across an interview  with Mike Krompass, one of the co-writers of “A Little Too Not Over You,” from January 2009.  He was asked if David played guitar.

He says he’s not very good on guitar. Have you seen him play?

… he actually called me from his video shoot and he was like, “Can you tell me the chords for A Little Too Not Over You?” and he was playing it over the phone for me. Yeah, he can play. He plays piano great and he plays guitar. He is very talented.

Full interview here.

I thought I had read somewhere that he played, but wasn’t really sure until I recently read this interview.  I have to tell you, I got pretty excited at the thought of David on stage playing a guitar and singing.  Visions of a Spanish ballad in David’s beautiful voice with him accompanying himself on guitar were running through my head.

But then I watched the video of him singing “Waiting On The World To Change” with Jeff Leblanc and I began having second thoughts.  Watch the video and take a good look at the way David moves when he sings (particularly from 2:50 on), his full body rhythm and his very expressive hand movements, and tell me that you don’t appreciate the fact that David sings with his whole being.  You can almost see the music moving through him.

I started thinking about it and suddenly wasn’t so sure I’d want him hidden behind a guitar, unable to move around the stage and unable to express himself with his hands as well as his voice.

So I’ve decided that I wouldn’t mind if he uses a guitar on one or two songs, the way he does with the piano, (very generous of me, right?) but I definitely hope he doesn’t begin using it for too many songs.  I want to see him moving around, rockin’ that stage!

What do you guys think?

Would you like to see David on stage with a guitar in his hands?

Are you a fan of the acoustic style of singing/performing?

Would you prefer he do more songs either at the piano or with a guitar?

Or would you prefer that he remains free to move around, jump, dance and sing with those beautifully expressive hands of his, having fun on stage?

Watching that video also made me wonder what he would be like on stage without a mic to hold onto.  If he used a head mic instead, how do you think he would move? Would he be more likely to dance? Would it change the way he performs?  And most important…would we be able to handle it?
