For those of you that have been following my channel for a while, you know how big of a fan of Earthbound I am. It’s easily one of the most impactful pieces of art that I have ever experienced in the whole of my life. That said, for me to compare another game to Earthbound in the same breath is not something I do often, if ever.

It’s rare for something to come along that leaves a mark on my heart. Undertale happens to be one of the rarities. I’m not going to say much about the story, just that something like this only comes around every great once in awhile and you owe it to yourself to give it a playthrough. It only takes about 8-10 hours. If you’re avoiding it because of the hype surrounding it, please ignore that and play anyway. Seriously, you’re cheating yourself out of the best gaming experiences of this year.

With all the triple-A-trash being shoved in my face so often, it’s truly refreshing to see a game like this come along. It’s proof that anyone with vision, talent and determination can create something remarkable.

So this cover’s been in the queue for about a month now. It’s gone through several iterations and I finally settled on this one. I decided to cut out the solo guitar intro because I wanted to “warm up” to the vocals with a bar of the main rhythm section. It felt awkward to start out with the solo guitar then immediately throw a bunch of instruments at the listener as well as lyrics. I might *mayyyybe* do a guitar only cover of this some day.

The ol’ vocal chords were a little raspier than usual on this one. I find that during the winter time, my voice tends to be a bit rougher. That’s not necessarily a good thing, haha. It also blocks my sinuses up a bit so my voice sounds a little “nasally”.

All in all though, I’m pretty happy with this one. Without going into too much detail, I found the section of the game where you meet Toriel to be the most touching. It really got to me. I based the lyrics heavily on her dialogue with the player.

With this cover, I’m going to take a break from Undertale stuff. Don’t want to burn you guys out on it too hard ; ) I have several more tracks from the game that I want to do. Not sure when those will happen, maybe over the next couple of months. But for the time being, I have Zelda stuff to work on followed by Earthbound stuff for next month.

With the release of this video, I’ve done four covers in the course of one month. I haven’t done that since Chrono Trigger month a year and a half ago! I’m pretty proud of myself for that and I owe a lot of it to the inspiration from Undertale.

Hope you guys enjoy this one = )

P.S. I’m panning on doing a tutoriel for the Shop theme and Fallen Down, I just need some free time to sit down and film it! Right now I’m going to tentatively say “next week” it will be out.

Thanks to my buddy Ian for creating the thumbnail for this video! (https://www.youtube.com/user/WallyCharbie)

LYRICS

Welcome home
It’s strange, I know
But you’ve a place to call your own

Sleep here, child
for a while
Let the fire light your smile

Though you have fallen, small one, there is nothing to fear
As long as you’re with me, child, they will never take you

I don’t have much, though, I am glad that you are here
We’ll be happy, I promise that you’ll have everything you need

    I'm so glad I found your videos, keep going man!
    Everything you do is just soothing and your style extremely fits this type of music, I honestly think it's better than the original.
    I just have a request though, can you cover the Undertale OST "Undertale"?
    This one: watch?v=EBhFHJMVfiI
    Thanks!

    Wow. Just wow. This is so beautiful. The sound of this song fills my whole room and my heart with warmness. I just want to cry. It's so emotional. This video deserves way more views. I'm going to show it my friends and family.
    Thank you.

    What verb did you use on the vocals, if you happen to remember? Sounds really cool. Doesn't get in the way too much, but also fills up the space nicely.
