Kabukibear Piano OCR

Our old buddy Justin was just featured on ocremix with a FFX-2 solo piano remix http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03779

His only other mix on that site was 10 years ago as a solo guitar performance

Yeah, I saw that. Thought it was really cool. :slight_smile:

It’s interesting that OCRemix has a few guidelines on the submissions having to be a re-imagining of the song, so most of the guitar arrangements we do around here don’t really qualify (I think) but Kabukibear has a few arrangements, like “super swing bros” and the file select from SM64 that easily fit the bill imho.

Right, most tabs here stick pretty close to the original, just adapted for guitar. I would even throw his “DK in Love” arrangement in there, I wonder if that one is considered too interpretive and different from the original for their site.

Interesting that you would mention DK In Love. I actually submitted that one waaaay back in the day but it was rejected because they said it strayed too far from the original, and the fact that the main melody was used as a backing theme. I tried to explain that yes, it WAS a backing theme, I mean it’s only 5 notes long, but the main melody in my arrangement is actually the DK theme; same notes, just moved up an octave, slowed waaaay down, and with slightly different rhythms but they didn’t bite.
