Think about how odd this is: A video tribute to an anonymous gentleman works beautifully within a channel about music. Maybe that's the key to Rick's success... it's not just about instruction or appreciation. This channel makes us feel like we're all part of the same musical family. Me, you, Sting, Pat Metheny, Joni Mitchell, his friend Peter - just a bunch of friends talking the same language of notes, chords, melody lines, and solos. A lot of you mention Rick's quality of not talking down to his audience. That's because he's talking with us, not at us. I doubt any of us knew Peter Smart, but in this club of musical friends it feels like we lost one of our family members. RIP...
One of the nicest and heartfelt, truly heartfelt, tributes I have had the pleasure to listen to. Well done, my friend. Well done.
Music is the universal language. You are a good soul Rick.
That was so touching, brought a tear to my eye! What a beautiful tribute!
That brought me to tears! My late condolences and thank You for sharing that beautiful story!
Thank you, Rick. Thank you, Peter. funny what happens with acts of kindness. They clearly grow something good.
Rick, that was a lovely tribute to a good man. I recently lost my 82 year old father to cancer, so this struck a chord. You’re a great musician, but your success is mainly due to the fact that you’re such a genuinely likable and warm human being. Not enough of those in the public domain and social media today. Thank you, Rick, and I’m sorry to hear about your friend.
I haven't the foggiest idea how this video came to be suggested to me. I'm sitting here crying. Little things told me to keep listening. Peter was born in 1930, the same year as my father was born. Peter passed on August 20th, my birthday. Like a whisper - "listen". I don't seek musicians out, but I'm learning to listen when they speak.
Nice words, Rick. You did good.
A wise old man is a gift to humankind. “Youth is wasted on the young” is a quote I have often heard from my 90 year old father. I’m sorry for your loss Rick. This brought a tear to my eye.
You're a good man Rick.
This is a perfect example of success through authenticity and service. Rick is such a class act. He spoke with this fan at 38,000 subscribers with intention of connection first, befriended him because they both love music, and then has this beautiful story to share with us. This channel is amazing.
The world needs more people like Rick and Peter.
This video has done Peter proud.
Rick, I am sorry to hear about the loss of your friend, Peter. May he Rest In Peace. Thank you for the courage and sensitivity it took to post this video. It means a lot to all of us here on your channel.🙏🏼
Rest in peace Peter. Condolences to his family. What a legend to still be learning and still be excited to be playing and talking about music. The world needs more Peters. Sorry for your loss Rick.
Well done my friend well done
You enrich a lot of lives Rick. Most of us don't get Peter's chance to tell you. Thank you for caring.
Peter sounds like an awesome person. Someone who knows you never stop living just because you reach a certain age. Kept practicing playing, sight reading, innovating, learning and playing and loving music. He's an inspiration to us all, RIP Peter!
