This is meant as a demo for what will hopefully
become a full band version at our next show, though so far I'm
the only one who has learned my part (ahem).
FF1 was by far my most played game on the NES and I've always
loved the music. I skipped all the themes that play way too much
in the game (overworld, battle, ship, airship) and the Marsh Cave
because it sounds impossible.
As for the arrangement, this is a matter of personal preference.
I like my vg tunes accurate, simple, and to the point. This cover
is intentionally as straight as they get. Once we add drums and
distortion it'll change the feeling a bit, but it will still be
a straight cover.
I recorded it all on my (electric) P-bass with a muted tone and
acoustic Ovation. More on the tones later. I was relatively happy
with them but there is definitely room for improvement in future
acoustic covers. the new recording setup made everything easier
on me though. - Colin
