I've gotten a lot of requests for a long time to do more Donkey Kong songs since doing Stage 9-8. I decided to go the different route and went with Stickerbrush Symphony.

I knew this would be sort of difficult because A. It's soft, B. It's very popular, and C. I'm stubborn about changing drastically from the original feel. So I took it as a challenge.

Skimming through peoples comments about the (original) song during my pre-recording research, most people like Stickerbrush Symphony's because it's a peaceful and relaxing (and of course, catchy) song.. so I couldn't bring myself to do the entire thing heavy and take away from that.

But of course, if I did the entire thing soft, it'd probably get boring eventually, and people are expecting that trademark GaMetal amp-up somewhere. It's there, just wait for it. :)

It was a bit refreshing to do a true softer song, we are nearing GaMetal song #50 and the 'softest' song was probably Koopa's Road. Hope you enjoy it.

Update 10-27-11: Much to my surprise this has become one of the 'Best of the Week' here on NG and is my first song to achieve this feat. Thanks everyone and I'm glad you're enjoying it!


This Challenge

You NAILED this challenge you've given yourself!
I can't stop listening to it------
What amp are you using here??

You've done it now!

And by that I mean you've successfully blended the depressed hours listening to this song with the raging hours listening to heavy metal. I can dig it x10




I just liked a song that wasnt heavy metal...

This is just great. I love guitar melodies over keyboards etc...levels were perfect (dynamics are way important to me) This was so well done.

The guitaring was really fantastic. I just sat being tickled in the mind with the various licks...

I really like the heavy twist with an original feel still based on the theme. This has so much different stuff in it, for me this is flawless. Everything a song should be.

Thats an achievement. Definiely keep it up!

(that jazz solo around 4:00 was like a guitaring spoonful of sugar to me ears. I dont think that makes any sense but you get it...one guitarist to another...)
