On page 155 of Theory of Fun for Game Design there is some sheet music. It looks like this.
This is that song, played on solo acoustic guitar. – download
The song is played in DADGAE tuning, one of my favorite “weird” tunings — basically DADGAD with an added 2nd. As usual, I miked up like crazy: two condenser mics aimed at the guitar (one at the soundhole, the other at the 12th fret) plus a bigger diaphragm mic sitting a couple of feet away. I also used a pickup on this one, a Dean Markley Promag Grand.
I have the sound space set up a little weird… the ambient mic is “in the back,” by applying a fair amount of reverb to it. It’s panned around 36% to the right. The fretboard mic and the pickup and panned hard left and right, with much lighter reverb. And the soundhole mic is dead center, with a dry signal.
This has been knocking around the house since 2003, but I just got around to recording it right before the holidays. Enjoy!
