OK.

It was a few months since I heard the original. The key is off, I forgot what happens on pulse 2 in the second part, the triangle is incorrect on the second part, the chord progression is off, etc. But the melody came out OK. Sort of.

Maybe I'll try another one later.

I tried to recreate the Moon Theme from DuckTales. It sort of falls apart in the second half, but it was still a lot of fun to make.

I did the Green Hill Zone theme from Sonic the Hedgehog (the first one, not "Sonic '06"). I used the 5B so this FTM is only compatible with the beta. #hiddentext
Fun fact: This is my first finished cover of this song, I have like 4 different unfinished ones.
The end could definitely have been better, but otherwise, I think it turned out pretty good, considering I did it from memory.

Thanks for letting me use your drums by the way, Ryan!

Edit: [smiley:facepalm] I did rong... I forgot about the whole it being only NES covers... Well well, I'll do something else later then instead...

Edit 2: Edited the FTM to be slightly better. Still haven't listened to the original yet, so I'm not cheating. :)

Hi! I'm not really active here anymore but I still make music. Nowadays I mostly make dubstep with emphasis on good melodies and chord progressions.

It's okay, it doesn't necessarily have to be NES covers only! This is great, especially from memory.

Also, you definitely put my Follin drums to good use!

Thank you! :D

Also, I just have to say, your LoZ2 Temple cover sounds identical to the original from what I can hear. :)

Oh, OK. So I tried this this time.
It was a similar amount of time ago as my other attempt in this thread since I heard the original tune, but this attempt came out much better.

Wrote a version of Airball from memory. I've done more covers of this song than I can count. Tried to make it as close to the original as possible.
