This is my arrangement of "Souls of Fire", the music you hear in the main menu (when you select Load Game, anyway) and character creation screens in Dark Souls, originally composed by Yuji Takenouchi - Yuji himself messaged me to inform me that while Motoi Sakuraba composed the majority of the soundtrack, it was he who composed this piece.
I tried to preserve the qualities of the original harp prelude by arranging it such that as many notes as possible can ring out, with minimal fingering changes. As such, I ended up with a rather odd tuning (Open D#maj9).
Tuning (from high to low, no laughing) - F A# G D A# D#
Capo - Fret 2

I used an GoPro HD Hero 3 to record from both angles - the neck cam footage was recorded afterwards whilst playing along to the prior recording to ensure synchronisation, also explaining why the headstock mounted camera was absent from the other recording angle.
Thanks once again to Brishan Palmer (https://www.youtube.com/use...
...) for assisting with the audio recording and mixing, and the bird for squawking at the start.
