I swear every medley I've done so far this year has been just about twice as hard as the last one I tried to do. I admit, it is a CRIME that I haven't done any Mega Man X yet. This medley is way overdue but I felt better late than never. The music to this game is classic, even if you've never played the game. There's such a charm to it and guitar always adds to it. No matter how many times these songs have been done as metal covers.
That being said, I tried really hard to keep the arrangement as true to the songs while adding small flair to make it my own without going too over the top. Even with that, I'm pretty sure I've never spent so long on a single project on just learning the guitar parts. I would say that this medley was probably the most difficult to play that I've ever done, just beating out Super Meat Boy since this song has a greater number of songs that are blazing fast where the SMB medley had the hard riffs concentrated to two or three songs. A true challenge but I think it turned out well and I hope you guys like it!
Very big projects this month, but I think with school starting up, I'm going to wind down with a slightly more obscure cover next week. Very close track to my heart and a PC game from the early 2000's. See you next week!
