Part 3 of Banjo Guy Ollie’s ‘Mega Man 2 Month’ is a cover of the theme for Flash Man. Enjoy!
So here’s number 2 for this month! I just had to modify the mandolin lines a bit for the lead because lacked time to practice enough to get it just right: There was a second fast section -where the lead goes up the scale very fast. I decided to omit this and only use half […]
Banjo Guy Ollie will be starting a Mega Man 2 month where he will be doing one cover per week for the next month. First up is the theme for Metal Man!
Man was this one tricky to do. All of it rests on the first arpegios and getting these right is essential. I was able to get the original samples and decompose them into 2 mandolin tracks each. Add a heavy limiter and some echo and I was able to pull it off. I wanted to […]
Well here it is! The intro theme from the AWESOME Turrican soundtrack by Chris Hueslbeck. This is one that I never thought I’d be able to pull off when I started the channel but finally, with the aid of my new toy, the E-Bow, I was able to do it. I am still amazed how […]
I was twelve when I got to play Ys on Master System, in the summer of 87. I didn’t have a MS but a friend of mine in the next village had. So twice a week in July and August, I’d cycle the 30 mins to his house and we’d play Ys together all day, […]
Here’s my remix of the remix of a remix! Well this was such an iconic tune of the 90’s, I’m surprised it hasn’t been covered more. This was heaps of fun to do. It’s a pretty simple tune so getting the sound balance was really where the trick of the cover lies. Hope you enjoy […]
Because not every cover has to be a shredding note-filled exercise , here’s a simple quiet one. I loved this tune from the first time I heard it back then and I’ve always wanted to cover it properly.
I had a love-hate relationship with Psycho Fox. Essentially because I sucked at it but I always loved the music which never failed to lift my spirits…. I could never get too mad at the game either . And the graphics were so darn cute too .
Here’s my cover of the Passing Breeze theme from the classic SEGA hit Outrun. This is one of the tunes I wanted to do from the start but lacked when I started this channel. I still don’t know how I managed to leave it till now but here it is. So many memories are tied […]
Another master piece originally composed by Jake Kaufman for Shove lKnight by Yacht Club Games. Probably the toughest cover I’ve had to do hand’s down. This thing was ridiculously hard to pull off on acoustic stringed instruments like the banjo and mandolin.
First cover for 2016 and I thought it’ll be cool to give another Undertale tune the BGO treatment. Toby’s Fox tune Spider Dance has such a great potential for any acoustic cover. There’s no overly tricky sections but the entire execution is quite fast and sustained so the arms can tire easy… it’s a great […]
It’s a very simple theme so I thought I’d explore the tonal range a bit with various instruments and a change of rhythm.
It’s time again for another cover by Banjo Guy Ollie and this week he tackles the Mad Forest theme from the NES classic Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse.
