AVGN Goes Jazz
I just ran across something from the archives of my digital life:
Back in 2010, I recorded a cover of the Angry Video Game Nerd theme song in GarageBand, because that’s what people did way back then. I decided to go jazz, since I had never heard a jazz cover before, and Christmas was coming up, so it felt gentle and snowy to me:
Every note was painstakingly struck using the touchpad on my MacBook Pro (i.e., I’m not a real musician). I’m actually kind of proud of this. It’s the closest I’ve ever come to composing music.
But the timing! This was the year that James managed to get Bear McCreary to compose the music for the Christmas episode, which was a take on Seuss’s Grinch story. So needless to say, my cover…mmm, fell by the wayside.
Fun to go back and listen to this again. I wonder if I could learn some of the parts on an actual (musical) keyboard.
