Author Comments

Once upon a time in October 14, 2004, Goukisan created the masterpiece known today as Guitar Vs. Piano. In the same year, he created a sequel, but it wasn't as popular as the original. That caused him to make Guitar Vs. Piano 1.2, his most well-known piece from the Guitar Vs. Piano series to date and any Newgrounds user would obviously be living in a cave if he or she hasn't heard the song.

And then, April 28, 2009, I got around to asking Goukisan for permission to remix the song, which he agreed to giving. A year after, I restarted the remix and finished it after 4 days of continuous work!

Hope I gave the original justice, and hope you enjoy!

Great remix!!!


Only 6 years late.... This is really good work. Goukisan and I were living together when he made the originals. I've know the guy his entire life and he never ceases to amaze me. When he made the originals I had something similar to this in my head. At the time and what he had it wasn't possible, it was all pretty new to him. I have to agree with those talking about the piano. I, while having nothing to do with the piece other than a couple suggestions always hammered it in that it was a battle between the instruments. having one drown out the other or lack of playtime made it one sided and away from the point. That being said, double base pedal... love it, spot on. Base guitar awesome and subtle enough and your added elements really do the job. all in all I really love this remix. Thanks for the hard work.

*gasp* A review that I'm answering that was actually done in the same year! At least unlike the others, I'm not years late in responding. XD

That's an amazing backstory you have there, someone who personally knew Goukisan. Yup, I wholeheartedly agree with the critique, who knows if one day I'd revisit it and do it right. Thanks for the review!

Absolutely Amazing!
