Title: Vidya Game music on the Banjo
Post by: seamusfish on July 08, 2012, 01:39:40 AM
I'm going to be doing a bunch of recording over august, and early fall, so I'm trying to work on ear training.  I'm so-so at reproducing melodies by ear, but I'm getting better.  I love how music from the old nes/snes rpgs tend to have simple, and dominant melodies, so I figured arranging some of them on my banjo would be good practice.

I played Earthbound again recently, and attempted an arrangement of the final track.  Not entirely sure about the 3rd and 4th bar of the bridge, but meh, 1 take for the win.  Enjoy.  http://soundcloud.com/seamusfish/earthbound-because-i-love-you (http://soundcloud.com/seamusfish/earthbound-because-i-love-you)

I'm currently trying to arrange Frog's Theme from Chrono Trigger as a bluegrass breakdown.  I'll upload it when I hammer out the details.

After that I'm looking for some suggestions.  Classic vidya game music you'd like to hear on the banjo, with simpleish melodies, preferably in a major key.  I'll keep dumping in this thread as I upload them.
