Rob Landes, an LDS violinist who is starting to make a name for himself on YouTube, played a chilling cover of “Numb” by Linkin Park in his unique violin + loop pedal style. Using his loop pedal, he is able to make his own playing sound like an entire orchestra (or at least a high-quality quartet).

Rob Landes uses a loop pedal to play a chilling cover of "Numb" by Linkin ParkIn the description of his video, Landes writes, “Chester Bennington of Linkin Park took his own life last week, so I learned ‘Numb’ to acknowledge his struggles with depression as well as to pay my respects to the band and the many fans he touched throughout his life. As I listened [to] Linkin Park perform this song, it took me back to my high school days when I experience my own periods of depression, and it reminded me that no matter how successful we are, we all deal with different issues in our life, and it’s ok to reach out and get help. We’re not alone.”


Landes’ version of “Numb” did an amazing job of capturing the deep sadness that Bennington must have been going through as well as the tragedy that he is now gone.

Landes recorded his cover of “Numb” in Provo, Utah at Rock Canyon Studios. You can click here to see his other videos or to subscribe to his channel.
