yeah I know about ocremix, haven't posted on it though.

As i understand it's more for remixes and not so much for acoustic covers ?

 

Yup, they do remixes... not so much covers. Though there are actually quite a few VG cover bands here in my town.

Okay, first of all yes.

 

Secondly, yes. Freaking yes.

 

These sound great, video game covers are among my favorites, especially when done in a style that you don't hear often! I love it, looks like I have some new music to listen to at work.

 

And I gotta say, your avatar is just too badass. That is the hardest I have ever seen a banjo rocked. Subscribed!

Good job! Yeah for ocremix, you'd have to include a solo and change the music up a bit more in order to get it posted. It's been a few years since I've submitted anything and I'd imagine it's more stringent now. Over time, you'll probably get more views/listens on youtube especially since you have a specific niche.

what better to start the week than a good fight, FF style ?
This one took me a while to finish. 14 video tracks for 18 audio layers.
This is the hardest cover I've worked on to date. Final Fantasy VII - Battle Theme .
