Post Metroid - Kraid's Theme on Acoustic (Flamenco) Guitar
Finally, I got to record it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIFbwNNc ... ideo_title

Yes, it's still far from perfect and not up to speed, but I don't care (even though I do mention that it's a demo, implying a better version will come...) Anyway, I still prefer my first recording, even if it's a lot slower. There's a lot more feeling to it and the recording is a gazillion times better (I used the same recorder, though). Original Take:
http://manolito.mystiq.googlepages.com/ ... id_Raw.mp3

Comments or criticism, all are welcome.

Manuel

OLD:
So, I bought a new voice recorder: the Olympus LS-10.
I thought of making a recording of myself with it. To my surprise my hammer-ons and pull-offs are really a lot better than I expected, my complete sound is actually pretty decent. I should check my singing voice with this thing too, I think, as everyone but me thinks I can sing fairly well (I always think it can be better).

But to the piece: Kraid's Theme:

http://manolito.mystiq.googlepages.com/ ... id_Raw.mp3

Pretty raw recording in the performing sense, about the second take I believe, but I already played for over 5 hours, so I thought of taking a rest. It's also quite slow, but it actually doesn't sound so bad, does it?. It's only me by the way, solo guitar.

What do you think?

EDIT: Maybe I shouldn't end with a Picardian third, oh well. And the natural harmonic (b) was not so well played.

Excellent counterpoint! Moar nylon in video game music.

The third part had to be altered, as you can't play a accompanied three octaves on guitar, as the original :P, so now it has a pedal bass (E).

Here you go.

Well done, but it sounds like you didn't quite "capture" the essence of the track. I'm not saying it's bad at all, simply that you sounded a little off-key on a few notes. But I can't read sheet music or play a guitar skillfully, so for all I know, I'm full of crap.

I do enjoy the slow, atmospheric feel to it, though. Practice makes perfect, keep at it.

I can't be off-key, because every note should be correct. I did mute some notes, because I didn't stop the frets enough with my fingertips and my guitar could've been out of tune (making it sound off-key), but I believe it wasn't.

I did play the last part with a chord MM also used, Esus#4. It's a chromatic chord, so off-key, but contextually it may not be wrong (MM used it also).

I like the slightly slower rhythm of it. I think it would be darker/creepier/more atmospheric if you went just a bit slower. That may not be your goal, but I for one would like it!

"Kraid" is one of the most beautiful songs in the Metroid canon, and this version makes it even moreso.

Great job!
