I didn't see this coming. Good thinking shnabu, submitting old gems like this one.
I've been listening to this one a lot. It's one of my favorite remixes from you. :smile:

Haha, wasn't expecting this to be posted here. Anyway, yeah this was one of my favorites forever. I don't care if it is not up to his current standards, I just really like it still, it grew on me.

For some reason I always associated Earhbound characters with Charlie Brown (the roundness of his head I guess ALSO LOOK AT POO!) and anyway this really kinda made me feel like Paula was walking around Twoson to go to Linus and Lucy's house.

I like it! Definitely not as challenging as many of Sam's mixes, but there's nothing wrong with a piano piece being a bit more accessible. This is fun and charming.

That's when I thought when I first heard this. I doubt it's intentional (I don't think Sam is really a fan of Vince Guaraldi), but it's still cool.

This may not have the depth of some of Sam's other stuff, but it's a very satisfying and nostalgic mix and I still like it a lot 4 years after the first time I heard it.

He also recorded some other little Earthbound snippets on piano the day he recorded this mix that I don't think are available anywhere. I'm gonna ask him if it's ok if I upload them so people can hear them.

FINALLY.

Thank you for posting this. It's one of my favourites of yours Shnab. It really goes to show how you have an amazing knack for improvisation, so much variation on a simple theme.

Ah. I think I actually heard this on youtube as part of this rock candy...'project'.

Really like this, has sort of a ponderous quality to it. Great balance between Shnabubulean virtuosity (while not getting too heavy) and thoughtful restraint.

More mixes d00d! Actually, I challenge you to make an impro remix employing that lh>drums/rh>bass concept you had started on a while ago. That'd be tits

I'd like to comment on DJP's assessment of Sam, he INDEED can play improv as well as most people play arranged. I met him in person once (Great guy!), and he banged out an amazing rendition of Magus' theme on the fly that I will remember for a long time hence.

Sam! If you're reading this, Leon/Aaron says Sup :D.

Same to DrumUltima and Jose the Bronx Rican who were also there :D. And Bahamut for that matter o.0

There are some great ideas here, and the off-the-cuff nature gives this a fun vibe. 1:26 is easily my favorite part, I love the exaggerated phrasing, it really brings the section to life. Well played, I get a Charlie Brown feel here too.

Excellent stuff here, especially considering the source, which just hinted at all the possibilities that Sam actually explored here. I must say, though, that 2:30 onward is brilliant. I didn't even play Earthbound and I feel nostalgic. ;)

Hey, a Shnab song!

I feel like this is one of his more cohesive arrangements - good piano playing naturally, but a sense of cohesive flow that sometimes is missing I feel in his work more importantly. I don't remember the source being particularly long, so this makes this all the more noteworthy.

The arrangement has a 16-bit era RPG feeling to it, which makes it easy to feel nostalgic even if you haven't played this particular game. I especially like the parts around 1:30 and 2:40, simply because they sound so lively and quirky.

Reminds me of Masashi Hamauzu's piano playing from his SaGa Frontier 2 album. Yeah, that's a good thing.

It's bright, lots of syncopation, lots of stacatto. I don't know what there is to say other than it's really good. Bright, sunny, and playful. Goes on my piano playlist.
