    Anybody got any ideas for cool songs from movies/tv show/ video games? I was thinking of learning zelda, and I already learned the pee wee herman song. Anybody else got any ideas? :help:
     
  2. Either the boss battle theme from Final Fantasy 7 or the theme from cosmo canyon from the same game...really awesome songs. :hyper:

    The underground theme from Super Mario Bros.; it's easy, and it'll impress your friends. Assuming your friends are easily impressed.

    Come to think of it, just go to kontek.net/vgjam/. Even though it's all in tab, there's a ton of guitar and bass tabs for video game songs, and there's midis you can listen to if you don't want to use the tabs.

    I've heard a cool rendition of the Night Court theme - can't remember who did it though - or was it Barney Miller?

    If everybody is really drunk and you have no self respect Ghost Busters might be funny :ninja:

    By the way, Lesforprez... "we were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold...". Nice call!

    I second Conan O'Brien's theme and the music they play for the first level of Donkey Kong Country for SNES.

    :eek: Good luck with that. It's rough. I can't "seperate my brain" and play both parts.

    That's why I'm a terrible pianist/drummer.
