State of the Game Tabs Address

All corniness aside, I just wanna let you all know what's going on with the site these days.

Things are just dandy really. The community is growing, people are submitting tabs left and right and a lot really fine work has been coming from you guys in the past few months. And we are almost at 1,000 tabs! I'll have to throw a party when that happens.

I plan to improve some things in the near future though. First off let me just say I am totally jealous of OCReMix. I love how they organize their remixes as well as all the other content on that site. I plan to organize this site in the same way that they do, and I think I've figured out how to do it given the resources at my disposal (I'm not a software engineer, unlike OCReMix's founder). So expect, for example, the tabber and composer pages to be far more detailed than just a gigantic list on one page.

Along with this organizational change will come a stylistic change. I'm going to work on a more unique layout that will integrate all parts of the site much better. I wanna make the forum and the main site basically one, so that you couldn't really tell the difference between them too much. I just want to have an all around better looking and better working site.

So those are my future plans as far as the infrastructure of the site goes. Nothing major like the upgrades I made last fall, basically just aesthetic changes. Don't expect this to happen terribly soon, I'm just giving a heads up to you all.

Last thing, the Winter Themes Project. I know I announced that ages ago but I wanna finally get that rolling. I'm gonna set a firm deadline for the last day of February, February 29th (leap year FTW). For those that don't know yet, I'd like to receive submissions from you all for songs that are related to winter. Go here for more information.

GTYNP: Link's Awakening - Koholint Island

Posted in GTYNP

If you ask me, Zelda tabs are over played. If you look at the most popular tabs you'll find Zelda tab after Zelda tab, most of which consists of just a few notes while other really great tabs languish in obscurity. Hence why I was so surprised to find this little gem. This week's great tab you've never played is a Stamen47 Zelda tab that has been largely overlooked.

I usually stray from playing duets. It's hard enough to find a good enough guitarist let alone a good enough guitarist that is interested in videogame music. But the first guitar in this tab is strong enough to be played on its own. I use it as a warm up piece as it's a good work out for both right and left hands. Incredible job Stamen. I'd love to see a true solo arrangement! TAB MIDI

GTYNP: Metroid - Kraid's Lair

Posted in GTYNP

I love it when someone classically arranges a song that you wouldn't possibly imagine being classically arranged otherwise. Ron's Kraid's Lair tab is the perfect example of this. There are several other tabs for this song on this site intended for electric guitar, and it has been recorded many times other by video game music cover bands in a clear rock style. But this song in my opinion sounds wonderful when played classically. Enjoy it.
