I do agree you occasionally seem to miss a note, but I think that's mostly because in the games' version they used more instruments and here you're trying to do everything with a piano which is tough. It's never really a biggie, but at 00:54 it does bother me a little. Those higher notes you hear just before that moment (I think it's Mumbo's xylophone that plays them in the game) are actually played again by a flute, but you only play them once and then you go over to only doing the banjo again. That part just sounded weird to me.

In order to improve it, I think it might be an idea to re-record the song a couple of times and only do one instrument on each. Then in the end put it all together, edit it a little and you might have the full song covered on the piano which might turn out really nice. Otherwise, you could perhaps consider adding an extra instrument.

Overall 3.5 out of 5. You covered this song pretty nicely, but there's still room for some improvement in my opinion.



bigbutt the bull tooty the sister mumbo the shaman whats better than just banjo kazooie?


needs a few more instruments though

Good, but...

I like how the song is only played with a piano, and I like the piano itself, but there there are a few flaws you might want to fix.

While the song is mostly played correctly, I think I can hear a few wrong notes here and there. You might want to fix those.

Second, The piano sounds too auto matic. Like its a software instrument. try making notes extremely slightly off time and maybe add some more reverb.

Third, I like how the song was somewhat simple , but some parts can use a bit more complexity. Instead of switching back and forth between treble and bass, try combining the two.

Aside from some of those things I pointed out up there, the song is pretty smooth going overall and I really liked the classical sound you put onto this amazing score.

Below is epic review....

SPOT ON! and i like how the music moves from the left to right in beginning. i know the lower notes are on left and high on right for all but the beginning is cooler.

Below is epic review....
