Today we've got a larger update than last week, and I'm very please at the quality of the pieces. However, I've got one quick little thing to say about submissions this week. Someone who had previously sent emails to firstname.lastname@example.org got their e-mail clients infected with a nasty virus. Two people, actually. So long story short, I had over 150 emails all containing viruses that filled up my mailbox, thus there may have been a few people that were unable to submit files. If you got a message that you couldn't send in a file, try resending this week. Oh yeah, disinfect your computers, for everyone's sake.
During this crisis someone sent me some very good remakes using a Gameboy Advance sound system. However, it seems I accidently deleted the accompanying message with author information, descriptions, etc, so if you're reading this, get in contact with me.
This week we have a lot of tab submissions compliments of Gianpiero, as well as our first bluegrass submission! I hope this is only the first of several to come, as rumor has it another staff member is getting a group together to do a full recording for us. And while I'm at it, only one person got my (apparently fatal) pun on the title for last week. Karl (aka Wolfie) correctly deciphered my awful pun and determined that White Pony was an album from the group Deftones.
That's it for this week, keep the submissions flowling and I'll keep the updates going.
Played later in the game, when Yuna and Seymour [spoiler] [spoiler] [spoiler] and Tidus & Co have to [spoiler] [spoiler] [spoiler] [spoiler] by [spoiler] [spoiler] [spoiler] while the [spoiler] all go [spoiler] [spoiler] in a [spoiler]. I'm not sure what this song is actually CALLED, since the official soundtracks call it "Assault" while the Sphere Theatre at Luca says it's named "Attack." /I/ think it should be named "Spoiler City." ;)
I had a look at the music section, and saw that my MIDI was there, and a heap of MP3's were there too. But what i didn't see was a blugrass remix!! So, I decided to make one just for the fun of it. All i did was change the instruments but hey, how else am I supposed to make bluegrass remixes? My website is here.
Probably my strangest remix ever, this is a version of 'Fear', the training centre music. Clocking in at around 9 minutes, this is for the most part darkly slow-moving and ambient, but it jumps in and out of various other styles, like a 'mystery vibes' section, an electro-funk-jazz section, and even an improv FF4 organ solo. I think they keep the song alive. While this has already been released elsewhere, very few people left comments, so I'd still really like to hear some opinions.
This is an arrangement of the first third of the ending sequence.¬† I wrote it as to instill a sense of childhood rememberance when listening.¬† The celeste in the beginning may remind you of either Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy" or John Williams's score to "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"
This is an arrangement for two guitars of the Aria di Mezzo Carraterre, from the Final Fantasy VI opera, one of my favorites pieces of music. One guitar is pretty easy (plays mostly the melody), while the other does some tricky things, but nothing too hard. You can find more of my classical guitar tablatures at my page.
This is an arrangement for two guitars of Cry in Sorrow, from Final Fantasy IV.¬†It's in a strange tonality which makes it a bit harder to play,¬†that's because¬†I kept the original tonality because it sounds very good.¬†You can find more of my classical guitar tablatures at my page.
This is an arrangement for classical guitar of Dear Friends, from the Final Fantasy V piano collections. It's a bit hard, but it plays beautifully on the guitar. You can find more of my classical guitar tablatures at my page.
