"Ahoy ! I'm Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate."

A little piano-version of a very great original composition by Michael (Z.) Land.
The soundeffects at the beginning and at the end are from the original soundtrack. I had to add some notes for a bridge (that connects part 1 & 2) and also at the very end just to give the track a personal note and a (hopefully) unique ending (instead of a fade-out ;)).

Please leave a comment/critique - would be a big help for me.

WOW o.O Thank you guys! You seem to really like this tune...never expected to see this one on the audio frontpage. Maybe i was wrong to think, that most of you like the harder sound (e-guitars and such) ;)

I like how this piece turned out. It makes me feel like Guybrush is relaxing on his ship while it's being slowly moved by the waves, reminiscing about his past adventures.

A powerful and moving peice...

even when bathed in simplicity. Many kudos to you.

But, the song did feel a bit needlessly slow at certain points, but otherwise I cannot think of any real flaws. Might be due to the massive rush of nostalgia that flows and ebbs in my mind with each key from the piano's soulful cries.


Caught me a little off guard right there, Very smooth, Well done good sir.

I would almost cry :/

Monkey Island is probably one of the best game I've ever played in my life.
Thank you for making such a beautiful music come to life again, it's simply magnificient.

Nothing else to say :( Piano is awesome <3

~Croash~ I wanna be a pirate!

Monkey Island is win!

Very nice track, and a fantastic piece of music, loved all the songs from Monkey Island, the whole game was so well made imo. Great work! Keep it up! :)
