A Brilliant Piano Cover of ‘Jingle Bells’ Played in a Haunting Minor Key

Toms Mucenieks, a very talented pianist, played a brilliant cover of the traditional Christmas carol “Jingle Bells” in a haunting minor key. Towards the middle, Mucenieks added a little Double Harmonic Minor, almost as if to make the song a bit less depressing.

Long story short – I somehow got tired of the same Christmas songs every year, so I tried to make a sweet twist to the Jingle Bells turning into something like depressive Christmas version.
