GTYNP: Dark Cloud 2: Time of Separation

Posted in GTYNP

This week's Great Tab You've Never Played comes to us from Dark Cloud 2 in the form of ajrock2000's arrangment of "Time of Separation". which can be found here.

Usually I go for the big complicated pieces, but this piece is short, nice and simple. Very reminiscent of many guitar pieces for beginners. But don't let that turn you off. It's definetly a nice little piece to have in your pocket. Great job ajrock, hope to see a lot more stuff from you in the future.

Everyone keep on contributing. We'll see you at next week's GTYNP.


Winter Themes Project

Winter is fast approaching for those in the northern hemisphere. Therefore it is an appropriate time to start another community project, this time based on winter themes. What do I mean by winter themes? Essentially any video game music that occurs during the game while it's winter can be considered a winter theme. Winter themes tend to have a very desolate, serene mood to them, but may also be lighter and more whimsical. People of the North from Final Fantasy 10 is an example of the former, while Winters Town from Earthbound is an example of the latter.

If you're interested in contributing to the project, please sign up in this thread. Any questions you have about the project can be asked there as well.

Please note that this project will have higher submissions standards than the last one. I will no longer accept simple melodic transcriptions. If you plan on submitting an arrangement for electric guitar, it has to be complete with at least 2 guitars (melody and harmony) and has to have some level of arrangement to it, rather than just a transcription.

This project ends January 1st, 2008.

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.
