Learn Bass Guitar

Chiptune!!!

I love chiptune and the NES Mega Man series has been one of my favorites for a very long time. Here are some original compositions that I’ve made in the style of Mega Man.

Song 1: Title Screen

 

Song 2: “8 Bits of Glory” is its name. I could see it as either a space or a factory stage.

 

Song 3: A boss battle? A cutscene? You decide.

 

Song 4: Sky Level.

 

Song 5: “Untrue”. It’s a reworking of a Bellevue song called “Lies”… get it? Heat stage or Wily level.
