Hey guys,

many of you suerly know csguitar89. He have a few awesome game music arrangements.
He also set on a year ago a collaboration of everyone who wanted to join.
Here is the video: http://youtu.be/X5DcdAletRU

We could do something like that for the comming Gametabs-NES Album. I just made a few suggestions of songs. Every Instrument and style should be posible.

Here a few songs we could use. just say what you like and a add a "+1"
Donkey Kong - Intro
Duck Tales - The Moon
Final Fantasy - Town
Zelda II - Temple
Super Mario 3 - Hammer Bros.
Dr. Mario - Fever

Maybe someone have a other proposal, just tell it in a post.

I just bough a camera to film myself when i play (just seeing a picture is dull...) ^^

For the song i think it should be somthing kinda repetitive, if you wanna do it the same way he does.

Many NEs songs are repetitive... just saying :D

yap, too long and it will be too hard to include many people into a fiddly thing, so that style should be a good point to start :)

Haha, NES^^ when this collab can also be part of that NES-thing... xD

yes it should be a small simple song, what we can loop a few times in different styles.
Sometthing that everyone is able to play even with a webcam or a audiointerface.
Let's see maybe we can give it a try. I would arrange all the technical things we need and do the mixing.

Any songs ideas?

lol just replay something such as a megaman song since they're like 30 second melodies and each person does their own rendition of it after every repeat, start acoustic, build up the bass and hit electric with drums after a fill

This guy did a whole medley of the OST. MM melodies are gritty enough to be rock or metal but melodic enough to also be a solo acoustic. Not saying you should do MM, but probably pick a song with a very quick melody that each person gets their turn to shine.

Or if you want to get more intricate with things, you can do a big band/orchestral type of song like how ridiculous this is. I know that this is probably not feasible with the resources we have here but my god, it's beautiful for all gamers. I just wanted an excuse to post it lol.

Mega Man is a good idea, but

Mega Man is a good idea, but I think many entrys for the NES album would be mega man. I think about a few song we could use, or you can also post some music you like (like jit did) and we vote what we do.

The song souldn't be too

The song souldn't be too difficult to let most people enter.
Like Mario Underworld, FF Crystal theme, FF1 Matoya's Cave, Duck Tales The Moon, Zelda Deku Palace, those are songs that can be easely loop, i think.

(btw, i'm not a NES bible, so i only know few classics)

Hey folks,
Let me know if you need bass, or acoustic drums (or acoustic and electric guitar, but surely that is already covered)
I've got decent A/V equipment; can provide you with high quality audio recording of instruments and video of me playing if you need that.
Cheers!
