Newcomer SAiNT 420, aka Jeff Little, posted this snazzy acoustic/electric guitar arrangement from Zelda 64 over on the Minibosses forums, and was met with suggestions that he submit it here, which thankfully he did. Though it's mixed a little low, and the solo that makes up the bulk of the middle of the track gets into Jerry Garcia levels of continuous, running passages, nevertheless the playing is superb and the wah guitar solo towards the conclusion alone is worth the price of admission. Introing with just acoustic guitar strumming, at 0'20" an acoustic lead solo comes in over that and you know straight out that - especially if you're a guitar buff - this is going to be an enjoyable ride. Fuzz electric comes in circa 1'17" in an extended lead that has its ups and downs - in the beginning, the fresh timbral addition to the existing acoustic texture is welcome, and the seemingly improvised playing is creative in its meandering. It does go on a bit; whether you're still into it by the time we get to the wah guitar will depend largely on your tolerance or predilection towards extended guitar solos. I prefer a bit shorter length, and some of the more chromatic passages here struck some odd tonality, but the majority was an enjoyable, mellow groove. Like many, I'm a sucker for a good cry-baby wah-guitar solo, and at 3'10" that's exactly what we get, as Jeff concludes this collage of guitar flavors with a really smooth wah solo that soars up and down with style to spare. The core melody is thankfully brought back in immediately afterwards, to remind us that this is not only an extended showmanship of guitar skills, but also a rather creative, interpretive ReMix of Zelda 64. Some excellent playing here, with a variety of guitar styles in full effect. Though to hear such playing matched with a fuller arrangement that played more on the original material would be wonderful, nevertheless this piece works on a standalone basis as a good extension of Kondo's composition into the realm of the fretted, both plugged and unplugged. Good stuff.
