Yep! With the release of Sonic Mania, I decided that maybe it'd be a good idea to put my skills to the test with this theme! Now, since it would only loop back if I just stuck with the theme itself, I decided to go a little further and try to add my own additions. I tried to make this sound as best as I could, so hopefully you guys enjoy this. It might not be entirely accurate, but I got it as close as I could. Some parts were altered or removed because while they fit with the original, they just didn't seem to fit in here.

If you're going to use this for a Geometry Dash level, or any sort of thing, be sure to give the proper credit and a link to this page. Thank you, man!

I like that you've got the Sonic-esque synths in the beginning, already nailing out the feel of this piece. The balance is nice, I wouldn't change anything about the mix. As for the actual sounds: a little bit more dist on that guitar? Just a tiddly bit? meep?

The most striking bit is what you've done to the original. You added your own spin. And now, this sounds like something that I could not just headbang to, but something I would happily have as background music to Smash Bros, or something just that awesome. You've varied the feel so much, obviously to avoid being repetitive but in doing so, you've turned it into one of the most enjoyable VGM covers I've come across. I am legit blown away.

Hopefully, this marks a start of how your inner cry for doing originals, for having your voice heard, comes out. Onward and upward!

SSJ3-Goku4567 responds:

When it comes to VGMs as short as this one, I had to add something else to it to make it stand out, so I pulled out all I could in this one! Perhaps a little more distortion could work, but I didn't want to make the guitar sound too overpowering, so I left it the way I did.

I hope this marks the beginning of a new chapter in my musical life, but we'll see where this goes! Thank you for taking the time to look at this mix, and look forward to my next one!

I think that this would be great to the Doom Gauntlet

Doom Gauntlet? Not sure what you're really talking about, but thanks for your review regardless.

Another awesome work :)
