A remix of Jib Jig (Rigging theme) from Donkey Kong Country 2. It starts off slow BUT it gets faster and has more instruments later on. The last 20 seconds or so is the best so make sure you hear all of the song before voting/reviewing.
Also, I need opinions on that guitar part. I can't decide whether it was a good idea or an epic fail.
Thanks and enjoy. =)

Brings back memories of playing this game and you have made this song extra special nice job 5/5 also I hope you keep up the awesome work :D


On the whole I like this song, but seeing as Jib Jig lies right at the top of my favorite video game tunes ever list, I do have to be a bit critical.

The opening is alright, a bit quiet, but it builds.

The problem is that it builds, and then falls into weakness again. Jib Jig was a very upbeat, sort of action-y song, and this is more like "my life on a ship", you know?

And the ending is just...well it feels like a cop-out =( Very weak and stuffed on as compared to the rest.

As for the main bulk of the song however, I enjoyed the melody very much the way you did it, but again, it's rather lacking in power (and the "boop" sound in the background grinds a little in my ear, though I can't think of what to replace it with so meh).

So yeah, my score lies at 8/10. Looking forward to the remake =)

Does the classic version justice!

Wow. This is EASILY the best version of this song I've ever heard.

Really, it's truly breathtaking. Thank you. ^_^


Man brings back wonderful memories...You sir did an outstanding job I could say this was almost better than the original. The back drum beat was meh but the guitar and harp was just great! Keep up the good work. :)

Hahah, nice. :)

This brought me the biggest smile I have had in a while. This song brought me back to happier age and the guitar-part is great. Love the song...
Downloaded and keep the good work up.
