It’s the Linsey Pollak Game!

I was sitting at my dining room table loading up YouTube videos to listen to whilst painting some D&D miniatures – you know, like I do – and I saw that Linsey Pollak had a new Live & Loopy video posted. So I cued it up to enjoy some of his wonderful jazzy improv whilst painting some dire sewer rats. Each time I took a moment to glance at the screen, I was surprised by what he was playing each part on (even though I really shouldn’t have been).

And thus was born THE LINSEY POLLAK GAME! ┬áHere’s how you play:

  1. Cue up one of the following videos, but don’t look at the screen (cover it with paper or just look away or something).
  2. When you hear a new instrument being played, try to guess what Linsey is playing it on. (Vocalizations don’t count. I mean, come on.)
  3. Look at the video to see if you’re right.

Good luck! Try to beat my high score of 1!
