SNES Zelda (ALLTP) Sad Overworld

OST: Overworld
Remix: Goodbye Link
Sheet: None yet


Just before I went to perform at a convention I was playing through my Zelda Medley and I noticed I really enjoyed the soft part of the overworld so I decided to record a section of it using my Toneport UX2 and the Roland RD700SX I had rented for the performance. I turned out rather nice and I uploaded it as sort of a preview.

Over time as the new Zelda games have come out for N64, DS and Wii I’ve given them a minor chance but not being a kid I didn’t give them hordes of time as I would have before. So I guess I felt like my time spent with Zelda was now only in the past.

SNES Super Metroid Piano Maridia

Lower Maridia

OST: Maridia 2
Remix: Piano Maridia
Sheet: PDF


It doesn’t take much to turn this almost written for piano song into a piano solo. When I got to this part of the game I was really surprised how trapped the background music made me feel. All metroid games have the feel of being lost in the depths as you play through them but for some reason this song really made me feel it.

SNES Super Metroid Item Collect

Super Metroid Item

OST: Item collect
Remix: Item collect
Sheet: Item Collect


I had always liked the soundtrack to super metroid. When I first came up with the idea of vgPiano I tried to get some albums together and one of them was super metroid. However, if not for metroid metal I probably would have never picked this song.

SNES Super Metroid Title

Super Metroid

OST: Title
Remix: Metroid Intro
Sheet: None yet


This remix was one of those times where you sit down a keyboard and just start playing. I never intended to remix this song but I picked it up quickly and figured what the heck I’ll hit record. I’m glad I did.

NES Metroid Kraid #3

Third time's the charm

Remix: Kraid Three
Sheet: PDF


When I launched my first version of my vgpiano page I wanted to have one good version of this song since at the time I had so many floating around. So I sat down and recorded what to be honest I still don’t think captures what I was trying to do but until I revisit this song (which I doubt I will for quite a while as this game has other good un-covered tracks) this will have to do.

SNES Zelda (ALLTP) Before the Mirror Medley


OST: Sanctuary, Overworld, Kakariko
Remix: Before the Mirror
Sheet: Kakariko, Overworld, Sanctuary


In 2005 I started looking for remix competitions because I was really enjoying tracking compos. I found a competition on RPG Gamer called Sound Test. This competition featured an “On the Keys”  section. There were basic rules but it had to be from an RPG and on a keyed instrument (organ, piano, etc). I always figured that Zelda for SNES was a bit of a stretch to say it was an RPG but I guess that 1 town was enough to make an RPG so I was more than happy to do this.

Initially I wanted to do more tracks but I started to run out of time so I called it “Before the Mirror” because all the songs it in take place in the light world. I have always intended to do an “After the Mirror” with songs from the Dark world and maybe one day I will.

SNES Final Fantasy 2/4 Karate man of Fabul

Castle Fabul

OST: Fabul
Mp3: Yang’s Pride
Sheet: Zip of jpgs


My main inspriation for starting work on this arrangment was because I had heard many times that fabul would not translate well to a piano arrangement. Initially I was worried a bit myself but as I got into working with the song I found myself really enjoying it. The theme of fabul is triumphant and full of power, a very uplifting piece to play through. I hope you feel the same way listening as I did playing!

NES Mega Man 3 Proto Man

OST: NSF file
Mp3: Proto Man take 2
Sheet: None yet


I always enjoyed this song and I think everyone who played mega man 3 enjoyed the addition of proto man. The whistle introduction, the fact that you can never beat him and then again his theme plays at the end of the game, the full version finally!

While fooling around I started to accidently laern part of this song (something that happens to me often) and found that it worked really well on piano. I took me a while to get a recording of it done because I couldn’t decide how I wanted to arrange it. Even so this arrangement is not very good and I will one day re-make it properly.

NES Metroid In Kraid #2


Mp3: Kraid technical version
Sheet: No sheet music for this version of kraid check 1 or 3


I was not vey pleased with my previous version of kraid’s theme so I tried to capture a more technical version. I was much happier with this version but still felt it was missing something, some of the feeling of terror that you can feel in the OST.
