Compilation Details For Mega Beardo - A Mega Man 2 Guitar Tribute:

"This tribute was created to portray the Mega Man 2 soundtrack as one single listening experience. Every track progresses into the next as if the game is being played inside of your head. Naturally, these songs were not originally intended to transition into each other. So, I had to write and/or rearrange these progressions in order to make this seamless listening experience possible. But each "new" part that I created was at least somewhat inspired by its respective original composition.

All in all, my goal was to allow the listener to experience playing the game from beginning to end with his or her ears alone. And you may notice that the album has been broken down into two different parts. I felt that the material exhibited a natural break in the overall mood and intensity once the Dr. Wily music takes over.

I am obviously not the first person to record guitar versions of the Mega Man 2 soundtrack. There are tons of great versions all over YouTube. I'm also not the first person to do this type of rearrangement for vintage video game soundtracks in general. There is a whole community of creative minds that take these nostalgic songs and put their own personal spin on them; my personal favorite would be Grant Henry over at Metroid Metal.

With that being said, I hope my version of Mega Man 2 is different enough to be a credible addition to an already overflowing appreciation for this music. And I hope everyone has as much fun listening to it as I had recording it. It truly was a pleasure. And as my boys in 8 bitz would say, 'Stay up and play up!' "

Mixed by Ryan Postlethwait and Terry Smith
Mastered by Terry Smith
Album Artwork by Brian Pickens

All Mega Man 2 compositions (c) Capcom

Mega Thanks go to Terry Smith, Brian Pickens, and Rob Marshall (not the film director) for their respective assistance in getting this project out to the people, and also to those who gave me feedback along the way.

Special Thanks go to Takashi Tateishi, Manami Matsumae and Yoshihiro Sakaguchi for actually writing the wonderful music for Mega Man 2. You were able to take an incredible game and allow it to ascend into legendary status. It really exhibits the power which music can possess, even for a silly little 8-bit video game from 1988."
