⭐Dracula’s Castle (new Collab Playground video)

My new arrangement, Dracula’s Castle from Castlevania – Symphony of the Night, that I recorded with The Collab Playground is out!

This is a music theme originally composed by Michiru Yamane. Appropriately, it is heard in the first section of Dracula’s Castle, the Entrance. It came to be considered to be Alucard’s theme.

Premiere this Sunday!

⭐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 (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!

If you like what I do, remember to like and subscribe to the channel so you don’t miss my next arrangements. Tips sponsoring my coffee addiction would motivate me to do more 🙃.

Cowboy Bebop – Preview

Hey everyone, I have started the work on Cowboy Bebop. I’ve actually almost finished recording the audio – although I’m not entirely happy with the melodic line which could be cleaner, so I’ll redo it. The bass line really really 🤘🔥 though!

I just slapped this early draft onto the original Cowboy Bebop intro to get a feel for it because my intention is for the video to be like the original intro! Thought I’d share it here. The percussion is MIDI here, but I’ll record the final on-guitar percussion as part of the video shoot.–Draft-1-V7V8DDUP4?justpublished=true&alias=Cowboy-Bebop–Draft-1-V7V8DDUP4

⭐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!

⭐FI’s theme from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Fi’s theme from Skyward Sword appears in different ways throughout the game. Most people cover Fi’s Farewell, which is a little bit different, but I decided to cover this version. I love the separation between the bass and melody. I took a few creative liberties to make it playable on classical guitar and yet, it is my hardest arrangement to date.

Although I have recorded quite a few videos for The Collab Playground, this is my first solo video and I had a few technical video and audio difficulties. Next time will be better! My next piece is Lenna’s Theme from Final Fantasy V. A preview I posted a while ago can be found here
