⭐Luma Theme from Super Mario Galaxy

This is my take on the Luma theme from Super Mario Galaxy composed by Mahito Yokota . Lumas are star-like creatures that first appear in Super Mario Galaxy. Unlike most Stars, they have a raindrop-like shape and come in many colours, with the most common one being yellow. They help Mario on his quest.

I kind of improvised my own version.

⭐Chocobo Theme from Final Fantasy

This is my take on the Chocobo Theme, which is the leitmotif of the series’s mascot Chocobo, a usually yellow bird often usable as a steed.

Each game uses a different mix of the central melody arranged in a particular style of music. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu for Final Fantasy II, the game where chocobos debuted.

There is not a single version of the theme, so I just did my own version. Hope you enjoy!

⭐To Zanarkand from Final Fantasy X

Originally composed by Nobuo Uematsu, this is the first theme you hear when you fire up Final Fantasy X. This is one of the most memorable soundtracks of the game. Hope you enjoy!

⭐Windfall Island (new Collab Playground video)

I play the recorder in this arrangement by Kyle Throw of Windfall Island, which is a music theme originally composed by Koji Kondo for Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker. Appropriately, it is heard while exploring the island of the same name. It has a mix of many recognizable themes from the franchise such as Lon-Lon Ranch and Kakariko Village.

⭐Breezy from Final Fantasy VIII

Breezy is the theme playing when you enter Balamb Town in Final Fantasy VIII. It’s lovely and chill. This piece was originally arranged by Sam Griffin – go to his website to find the score.

I haven’t been posting videos for a little while because I have been busy with life but thought I’d post this short and sweet piece to tide you all over!

For added value, I’ve done a small improv on the theme in the outro.

⭐SCUMM Bar theme from The Secret of Monkey Island

The Secret of Monkey Island and its first sequel are my favourite games of all time. It was only a matter of time before I covered them.

This song is heard at the beginning of the game when you enter the SCUMM bar.

You can download the free score from here:

Did you know that this song was actually a popular English song called ‘Oh Good Ale Thou Art My Darling’? You can listen to it here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cEUn… (opens a new tab).

Return to Monkey Island is coming out soon and we get to revisit Monkey Island again. Are you excited? I really can’t wait!

Collab MIDI Preview The Collab Playground Updates VGM

🗓 August Update!

Table of Contents

Phantom Forest (new collab video)

I play the Viol and Kalimba on Phantom Forest (Final Fantasy VI), which was arranged by my good friend Truman Wilson for The Collab Playground. The video will be out on YouTube (below) this Sunday.

Don’t forget to like, subscribe and hit the little reminder icon so you don’t miss out on the Premiere!

Truman was kind enough to let me play some more unusual instruments on this occasion.

FF VI Phantom Forest

The (Bass) Viol is a renaissance instrument I picked up during the pandemic; it’s like a 6 or 7 string cello, with gut frets.

FF VI Phantom Forest

The Kalimba is an African instrument which consists or a wooden box and tins and it sounds a bit like a music box.

You should be able to play the video from below on Sunday!

Strange Flower from Corpse Factory

I have finished the arrangement for Strange Flower from Corpse Factory by Alex Shea; it’s not an easy piece to play and I’m still practicing it most days; I will record the video when I feel I have mastered the piece well enough — I expect the video to come out during the month of September.

If you can’t wait you can hear the arrangement on Soundcloud here.

Tank! from Cowboy Bebop

I have already recorded the audio for this (you can still find a preview here) and will record the video at some point next month ready to come out in October. The video edit is going to involve green screens and I fear rather involved! 😅

⭐Super Bell Hill from Super Mario 3D world

THIS SONG MAKES ME HAPPY and I really enjoyed arranging it! It’s got that feel good, happy vibe, you know! Super Bell Hill, otherwise known as World 1-1, is the first course of Super Mario 3D World and was composed by Mahito Yokota.

Want to play it for yourself? You can grab the tabs for free from www.alexseewald.com (note this particular one is arranged in the DADGAD tuning). Send me a recording if you do learn it! I want to see what YOU do with it!

⭐Lenna’s Theme from Final Fantasy V

Score coming this week.

Final Fantasy V is probably my favourite Final Fantasy game, alongside FFVI and FFVII. The original SNES track has an amazingly haunting bass line. I was determined to reproduce this bass line on the classical guitar so I decided to pull a little magic trick out of my hat.

I move the capo as I play, gradually altering the key – hopefully surprising you with an unexpected low bass effect, like in the original! Let me know in the comments if that worked for you!
