Alright guys, it's time.


Time for the next batch of epicness of UG Video Game Cover music!
For those of you that missed it, the last one can be listened to here:

http://artists.ultimate-guitar.com/ug-vg/

And can be downloaded here:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=FJT299YM

But now it's time for round 2!

RULES (READ ALL OF THEM)

1. All submissions must be original. You may not submit songs from the last album, you may not submit audio ripped directly from video games. Exceptions are sound effects (Like the jumping noise mario makes) and ONLY sound effects. No music rips.

2. You may collaborate with other users, but both users need to be credited.


3. The submission must be recognisable as the song you're covering. You must use the melody from the original. BUT

4. If you listen to the first album, you'll hear that a plethora of styles were used to cover the songs. Be creative, go wild, anything goes!

5. When you submit a song, upload it to your profile for it to be reviewed. If it then selected, you'll be given an email to send the mp3 file to.

6. Please do not submit songs that were already done on the last album.

7. I'm going to be including a list of submissions in the OP, so when you post your submission, please include the genre, title of the song, and the game it's from. If somebody has already covered a song, you're still welcome to do your own version, but keep in mind that two versions of the same song will ONLY be accepted if done in very different styles, so if someone already has done a song, it would be easier to just do a different one.

Deadline:

You have EXACTLY one month, until the 16th of July. I urge you to post your songs as early as possible, though, so that people can listen to them and possibly give suggestions of how to improve the quality (i.e. if you have tuning or timing issues, if some parts are flubbed up, etc).

Once submissions are accepted, I will turn them green in the OP. Submissions will be judged on overall quality and originality. If you are unsure about the quality that is wanted, just listen to the first one (maybe it will also inspire you).

So I think that just about covers it! If I've forgotten anything, I'll update the OP later, and will post that I did.

EXCELSIOR!

Did you just start or have you been working on it for a while?

I think I'll have a look at some FFVII music for this, maybe the Boss Theme or Aereith's Theme.

Unless they've been done, but I don't think so?

just check the old submissions, don't think they've been done (not a big FF fan, so I don't really know)

I'll go and check, failing that I'll find something else awesome to include.

The corneria theme cover from the last album was awesome. I might as well do something productive over the holidays anyway so i'll give it a shot even if it turns out to be gash like most of my submissions are lol.

Could we use songs that we wrote about video games?

I can't even play a pentatonic scale right so I won't be recording but I will give a giant thumbs up to anyone that can record a cover of UN Owen Was Her.

I could cover a touhou song but I don't think I'd be doing that one :P

I'll have to watch that vid later, I assume it's one of the covers played on guitar on youtube though.

I want to do a cover of the underwater theme from Donkey Kong Country.

EDIT: Wait, is there a sign-up thread somewhere that I missed?

I have a cover I did of the Crystal Theme on my profile. Give it a quick listen, and if you deem it worth oh great guy who decides if they are worthy, feel free to add me to the list of people that are in on this.

I WILL redo it of course, but it will be of that song.

Ok, put me down for the Morrowind title theme. I'll probably do two versions. One with just an acoustic duo that feels a little more organic and the other which may or may not work with electric guitars, bass and drums. I'll see which one sounds better at the time. I have ages to work on this and no school or anything so I can put some time into it.

EDIT:

I was originally going to do a ska cover of one of the Ape Escape theme tunes but after some widdling around it didn't work out.

I started working on album artwork for the first set, but I never got it out in time. Hopefully I'll be more productive this time around.

Count me IN!

I'm undecided on song choice yet, but I'll know for sure in the next hour or two, but I'm definitely IN.

I'm thinking about doing something MGS related... and now I have lots of VSTs I can use [organs, strings, brass, jazz, synths] and my guitar, the possibilities are endless.

You can bet that it'll be a song made by Nobuo Uematsu.
