Nothing beats a good unplugged performance from a musical artist you admire. Having him or her play the greatest hits with nothing but just a lone acoustic guitar ins a sound-friendly enclosure, filled up by a small but passionate group of music lovers. Blissful, ain’t it?
The same can be said for video game music covers. This month’s SoundScape celebrates the unplugged style of music-playing by using game tunes new and old that focuses on string instruments. Guitars & ukuleles take the spotlight here.
Many of the songs played here are covers from old titles. See (or hear, rather) if you can spot what tune is playing from the video without looking at the spoilers.
If you love this and all sorts of video game music, why not visit the SoundScape channel for your mixtape-like aural needs?
