Recently, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl set out to record a 23-minute, live instrumental track, crafted and performed on seven instruments entirely by his lonesome. Via an interactive video posted on Grohl's Roswell Films website, viewers can isolate each instrument - we recommend the drum track, because although Grohl has many talents, he remains one of the greatest drummers in rock history.

Plus, if you head over to http://play.roswellfilms.com, you can listen to individual audio tracks, download sheet music and purchase vinyl bundles of the track itself. "The entire song was played by Grohl, each time on a different instrument, live for 23 minutes", a press release previously explained. Explore "Play" by choosing which audio and video you'd like to experience.

Dave Grohl has shared his new documentary, Play, and it's pretty incredible.

Also up for grabs are the music sheets, the input lists, and (if you're feeling really geeky) a floor plan of the live room Grohl played in. Somehow, Grohl managed to walk away from the session not only with his sanity intact, but a finished song, titled "PLAY".
