GTYNP: Wrecking Crew - Title Theme

Posted in GTYNP

Wrecking CrewThis week's Greatest Tab You've Never Played comes from the 1985 game "Wrecking Crew" for the NES, which I had never even heard of before the tab was submitted. I am a big fan of swing pieces, and this is a great example of one. It was arranged by Kabukibear about 6 months ago, and never received any attention from the community.

Like last week's GTYNP, this piece can stand on its own, even if you've never heard of the game. It's a somewhat difficult piece to play because of the timing. But if you can get it down it's one of the most fun tabs to play on the entire site due to its very cheerful mood and swing feel.
