I'd be the biggest liar in the world if I said I haven't spent more time completing side quests in this epic and instant-classic series than I have doing actually productive stuff in my life, forever. I've been playing this series since I was about 10 with Morrowind and have been hooked on the series for a decade now. I think I tried to play it off that I never played these games so that this medley would be a surprise, but it's hard to keep that shit in for so long.
A huge thank you to the people that helped me record the vocal part for the Skyrim theme. This is the first cover I've done that incorporates vocals and I thought it turned out really great. The fact that we were able to bang it out in a half an hour (including learning the parts) was insane and these guys really came through. Also this medley was a great opportunity to try out solo instruments like classical guitar, piano, and of course, ocarina (all done in one breath, hence the minor shakiness... ouch). Hopefully more ocarina to come! Hope you guys like this, it was a very ambitious project. ☺
