📖►Donkey Kong Country King K. Rool's Galleon Metal Cover's Story~
*WALL OF TEXT OF COMEBACK INCOMING*
Oh boy, so many things to say!
A few weeks ago, my guitar (Epiphone Les Paul) started acting up, couldn't stay in tune, intonation was off even after a visit to the local Luthier, so I was at a stalemate. Didn't know what to to do fix it, ordered a new bridge but didn't change much (I'm guessing it's the overall setup, bridge + truss rod + crappy tuners, but what do I know?), so I was left without a working electric guitar for recording: it was pretty bad.
Then I got an offer from my uncle's company for a job and we got a nice early pay before Easter; so here we are! I managed to get an awesome ESP LTD SC-207 7 String guitar and I absolutely love it! The setup was nearly perfect even though it's second hand (it has only a few little scuffs here and there), because I guess it was used as a secondary tour guitar: it even has EMGs installed, WOO-HOO!!
For the song, I knew I had to make a powerful comeback, so I chose one of my favorite Donkey Kong Country tunes from David Wise: the King K. Rool Theme, a.k.a. Gang-Plank Galleon. Since it's such a simple song at its core, I decided to go crazy with it and modify a few melodies and add a bunch of riffs to have some variety because it repeats quite a bit!
For the video I spent a little more time than usual, especially on the intro part, and I really like how it turned out!
As always, please let me know how this sounds/looks to you!
See you next time with a PERSONAl favorite of mine!
Enjoy and thanks for watching!
