After my previous Commodore 64 Gametune Cover I decided to do another one. By request the second one became the famous Sanxion Loader tune, also composed by Rob Hubbard.
Like with the other cover I mainly focused on getting every single note exactly like the original. Only the sounds are (of course) more modern than the original SID tune that came out of the Commodore 64 back in 1987.
The song has been submitted to Remix64 and scored 72% last time I checked (August 2013).
I changed the title (where possible) from “Shitty Solo Version” to “Omnidextrous 2009 Remake” because I got a lot of responses that “Shitty Solo” just wasn’t right. I’m planning on doing another remake of this song (different style), therefore I also added the year in the new title.
It took me 10 takes or maybe even more to try to get a decent guitar solo from playing the keyboard. I still feel I didn’t succeed, hence the previous “Shitty Solo” title.
