The following scribings are notes from the composers about their featured pieces in the updates. Their
email addresses can be found next to their contributions, found below.
"La Chocaréna - Chocobo Remix!" (Final Fantasy *.*) by Draggor
The song is called "La Chocaréna - Chocobo Remix!". I called it this because the beginning kinda
reminds me of the macaréna for some reason. ; ) It contains the generic Chocobo theme from the final fantasy series, but also
alludes to "Mods De Chocobo" and the Chocobo RPG music from FF8, "Electric De Chocobo" and "Place your Bets" from FF7.
"Garland Theme" (Final Fantasy 1) by DJ Eldeel
This is a two part remix of the popular Garland theme from Final Fantasy I. The first part is a newage-ish
mixture of electric piano and airy synthetic sounds, the second part is a mixture of 5 strings. Who says
synths can't produce beautiful combo-strings?
"Credits Theme" (Legacy of the Wizard) by DJ Eldeel
This is a remix to the old NES classic, Legacy of the Wizard. This remix consists of strings, guitar, and
drums. I think the three main instruments compliment each other well. Check out the different strings! ( I
may be biased, but I like how the harsh and soft strings compliment each other.
"Field To Tomorrow" (Lunar 2) by DJ Eldeel
This is classic ice overworld song in Lunar 2. I've tried to stay close to home as the song's classical
roots still remain. Classical instruments like strings, flute and pizzicato lead the song, as well as
the jazzy touch of a sax. Enjoy.
"Overworld Theme" (Wild ARMs) by DJ Eldeel
Here's a remix to Wild Arms Overworld. The song features some nostalgic instruments, some of the kinds
used in Wild Arms 2. Leads are guitar, strings and piano and the everpopular Wild-Arms-esque whistle.
Hope you all like it.
"Battle Theme" (Final Fantasy Mystic Quest) by Barfington
This was the worst game, with the worst sounding music. i only did this, cuz i try to be good to my fans who request songs...i just suck at getting
around to making tabs for people who ask for em...
