The title fits the song perfectly, and the description too. I can almost imagine the court jesters entertaining the King. Is that a lute?
It's been a while, but if my memory serves me well, I think it's a Cimbalom. :D
Thank you for the kid words!
Reminds me a little of Kingdom Dance from Tangled at some points. I adore coming across tracks like this on Newgrounds! There is something that is a bit strange to my ears though. Would I be right in thinking that for the main melody in the first three quarters of the piece at least, you've used a layering of honky-tonk piano with an undertone of dulcimer? That's the only thing that keeps me from being able to really imagine this piece. Forgive me if I'm wrong, I know that sometimes people can mishear and reach the wrong conclusion and base their opinion on that which can be frustrating! ^ ^ Really nice job! ~*have a 5*~
Haha, firstly, thank you for the review and kind words!
Now... Yea, I totally know what you're talking about.
What you're hearing is a Piano combined with a Cimbalom, both playing the same notes at once. Initially I thought it was generating a harpsichord-like sound, but it later became clear that it's more towards of honky-tonk piano.
Thanks again and I'm really glad you liked it!
Awesome work, very easy on my brain. haha. Excellent stuff. Love your music.
That means a lot! Thank you kindly!
Good job! This was a very worthwhile listen. I like everything in this track :'D
Especially that medieval feel ;)
I'm happy you enjoy it! Thanks a lot!
Very nice. Applause :)
Part from 0.44 and onwards gives a very celtic, medieval feelings and literally I started tapping my foot. Good job. Looking forward to more.
Much appreciated; very motivating, heh!
