At long last, the bagpipe Metroid Theme is finished!
All parts of the classic Metroid theme you know and love played by one bagpiper. I've always been a huge gamer nerd at heart, and I've particularly always had a soft spot for the soundtracks of some games. Some of the melodies are so simple, yet will stick in your mind for years. As the bagpipe has an extremely limited scale of nine notes, I realized one day that retro video games, with their very chordal, 8-bit sound and simple melodies were perfect for the bagpipe.
Making this tune + video has taught me some serious lessons about the importance of staying with the metronome, and how incredibly challenging video editing can be for an idiot like myself! Enjoy!
Coming up next:
- Metroid II: The Return of Samus (GameBoy): Area One
- Pokemon Red/Blue (GameBoy): Battle Theme, Route 1, Main Theme, and Pokecenter.
- Master Blaster (NES): Medley (areas 1 - 4)
- And of course, the long awaited "Game of Thrones" Suite
No pitch adjustments used. Original theme composed by Hirokazu Tanaka.
