The new documentary, Play, takes an in-depth look from Grohl’s perspective at the process a musician goes through from the childhood desire to learn an instrument to growing and continuing to master those skills as an adult.
Grohl talks with different music students about their personal struggles honing their skills and explains his admiration of his own children starting the learning process. The highlight of the documentary however, is the 23-minute original composition Grohl records. Within it he plays seven different instruments to demonstrate the difficulties and expertise in mastering these sounds and instruments. The documentary is directed by Grohl and his Sound City/Sonic Highways collaborator Mark Monroe.
“It is a lifelong obsession, but at the end of the day, just like any kid, the reward is just to play.” – Dave Grohl
