-----Sparky's Notes-----
This one was in development for much longer than i'd like to admit. Trust me, there were so many revisions to this song dating back to 2013, that practically nothing remained the same every year. Eventually I decided to just push through this project to show everyone what I'm capable of. I still wanted to show I could create video game remixes. It has been too long.

I know I don't post to NG much, obviously. I'm going to try and change that.

FL Studio 12 AP Bundle. Sytrus was my main VST, with a shot of PoiZone and Spicy Guitar. I used my Novation LaunchKey Mini to do some setting up in this project.

Note (9/26/16) - Darnit. I didn't realize that my baseline was still the generic one I had that was just suppose to help keep my flow through the song. I'll need to fix that.

This is a cover/remake of Donkey Kong Country 2's Mining Melancholy.

The original is property of Nintendo and Rareware.

Music composed by David Wise.

I really don't have a whole lot to say about this song. I didn't find anything that was really wrong with it, so no critique from me on this one. Enjoyed it!



MisterMonroe responds:

Thank you! Everyone says you are your own worst critic. Plus, any time I post to NG I feel that if there is remotely anything wrong, they will REALLY let you know. (Even if it's for the best). Either way, thank you much for your response and rating!
