Original Song: Guitar Vs. Piano, Guitar Vs. Piano 1.2
Original Artist: Goukisan
Mix Artist: Moi!
Mix Length: ~4:18


Third time's the charm, right? I've attempted to remix this song twice in the past, both with Goukisan's permission, and now I'm back and taking a third swing at it! I went off of his "Guitar Vs. Piano 1.2" for this, and I also wanted to improve on my last attempt of this song, improving it vastly and making it overall heavier than I have ever done before! Goukisan, this one's for you! I hope it lives up to your expectations!

Instead of FL Slayer, I used a combination of Prominy's V-Metal and SR5 Bass plugins for Kontakt Player 5, as well as the drums I've been using for a while. For the strings, I used Plogue's sforzando plugin (in combination with SCC Expressive Strings), and for the piano, I wanted a touch of the original, so I used FL Keys. I hope you guys like this one!

The last time I listened to Guitar vs. Piano was ~15 years ago. I'd nearly forgotten all about it, I even forgot the name of the song lol. But recently I had an urge to find "that one amazing NG song from my childhood". All I could remember was that it had something to do with "battle" and "pianos" or something, so I tried to narrow down the submission date based on the time period I listened to it in. I can't believe I actually managed to track it down again, cuz this is a classic. And your rendition of it is the best to date. (admittedly not that hard in this day and age due to deprecated VSTs, but nonetheless still warrants a ton of merit)

Sticking to FL Keys was a critically good move, cuz that VST is practically what MAKES this song what it is. Thank you for helping me bring back so many memories. <3

Love this one.

Man this is legitimately epic!

Sounds good! Brings back memories.

Forgive me for the very late reply, but thank you, man! I wanted to outdo the last two attempts I made at covering this song, and I think I did!

-/wow ss! this is an amazing continuation of goukisan's classic series :D tip of the hat, my good sir <3/-

Shiverwar responds:

I see it as not a continuation, but rather a tribute to the legacy he left for us all to enjoy and share. He may not be on Newgrounds all that much anymore, but his work is definitely some of the most memorable on this site. All I wanted to do was recreate one of his most famous pieces and give it some of my flair.
