I started playing guitar in 2004. Since then I’ve released a small collection of songs, many of which are covers of old video game music that I entered into the Dwelling of Duels contest.
Below is a playlist and some additional information about pretty much everything I’ve released.
A cover of the Rainbow Road theme from Mario Kart 64.
I got second place in Dwelling of Duels for this one!
Fixation on the Darkness
A cover of Fixation on the Darkness by Killswitch Engage. It was released in April of 2018. It’s one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite albums of all time.
This is my first project in a long time and my first ever using Logic Pro X. A lot could be better here, especially the guitar tone. However, it’s time to move on.
I played all guitar and bass parts, and every drum hit was programmed by hand. I did all of the recording, mixing, and mastering as well.
Late to the Duel
A cover of The Duel from Ninja Gaiden for NES. It was released in March 2016.
The track’s name is reference to the fact that I misread the deadline for that month of Dwelling of Duels and couldn’t submit it.
Zelda’s Alarm Clock
A cover of Zelda’s Lullaby from Ocarina of Time for N64. It was released in October of 2015.
The Joy of Sliding
A cover of the Wily 3-4 music from Mega Man 3 for NES. It was released in August of 2015.
For this song, I used a DigiTech Drop pedal to tune my guitar to Drop B.
A cover of the Princess Zelda Theme that plays at the end of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. It was released in February of 2015.
My friend Cody Smith helped a lot with the guitar tracking on this song. We used his Kemper Profiling Amp to get a lot of the guitar tones.
Doom in the Desert Sky
A cover of the Desert Theme from Super Mario Bros. 3. It was released in August of 2013.
The riveting Mario impression was performed by Cody Smith.
The breakdown at the end still makes me laugh!
Forest of Illusion of Doom
A cover of the Forest of Illusion theme from Super Mario World. It was released in October of 2010.
Terminator 2: Birthday Day
A cover of the main theme from Terminator 2: Judgement Day. I made it for a friend of mine’s birthday. It was released in May of 2010.
I hope to do another Terminator tribute song in the future!
As I Lay Confined in an R.C. Car
A cover of the title theme from R.C. Pro Am was my first song. It was released in February of 2010.
The title is a reference to Confined by As I Lay Dying. I pretty much covered the R.C. Pro Am song in the style of Confined and added a few other elements.
