Here is Ezio’s family from Assassin’s Creed, my latest Video Game Music cover.
I chose the Odyssey version as my guideline. I heard this version and immediately thought it would work great on the banjo as it is uses drones quite a bit. Assassin’s Creed is of course available on the Nintendo Switch, Playstation, and more.
I use my Romero Banjo (https://www.romerobanjos.com)
and bare fingers on this one, I liked the idea of having some clawhammer-type strums in there to make it heavier. The song is in D minor and while there are some improvisational sections, the main melody is only a couple of notes repeated over and over.
I will be venturing into a new Nintendo game theme here shortly. There is a lot of great Video Game music out there these days. So much to choose from.
