I did (nearly) the entire SMB3 OST with my hollow body jazz guitar, and electric bass and stripped down drum kit.

 

There's very little in terms of liberties taken here, it's really more of a recreation than a cover even.  I meticulously recreated every note and every beat, adding only very slight variations for a few transitions and some added accents etc.  It's pretty clean and straight forward, really just a celebration of this great soundtrack!

 

Check it out friends, it's free right now up on Bandcamp: https://michaelzucke...er-mario-bros-3

Geat job albeit I prefer your original prog compositions. I still think Xoc's version to this day is the definitive arrangement of SMB3's soundtrack.

Really enjoying this! Great job! That bass tone has so much butter! Guitar tone is excellent too. Yyyyeeeaaah!!

The high hats are a little grating/washy imo tho.

Not my favorite game soundtrack, but I'm always happy to see you throw down more VGM covers.

This is goooooooooooood!  And damn, you beat me to it!  I've been wanting to do this OST.

 

I love all the manual delay parts!!

 

 

 

But dude...the missed chromatic note in Level 2 :( :( :(

 

 

 

Good stuff though, this soundtrack needs those clean guitars and simple drums so bad!

I opened the thread awaiting pingo’s feedback on wrong notes and I was not disappointed.

The album is awesome, Michael! Digging the clean sounds, and the mixing is superb. Great job!

Time for episode 1 of Pingo's Super Helpful Tutorials  https://drive.google...6cr6tLHVwM4R-fD

Do you have towave.exe and Katamari (Hero of theshizz)'s flagship followup, pingowavfixx.exe ?

 

 

 

 

I do wanna stress that this album is GOOD.  This is my favorite thing in vgm since The Hitpoints.

Oh you mean that bend? I tried to do it! You can hear me trying lol. But I guess it’s not really quite right.... maybe it should have been a hammer on or small slide... hmmm

And THANK YOU about a million times over for that praise man, means so so much coming from you dude! If Pingo says your game cover is good, then it must be good! Haha

nonono the notes before the slide!  Slow the NSF down if you need to!  Or video chat me and I'll show you.

 

I have such respect for you for always improving though, instead of being like "oh yeah but it's a liberty!"  Ever since that MAG where you played Castlevania Level 5 in some weird key!

Hmmm now I really have to check it out!

Did I miss a note or play a wrong note?

Yeah man, even harsh criticism can be useful. Always good to get feedback and really absorb it so next time around you know more ;)
