SEGA Tunes: Banjo Cover of the Monster Village Theme from Wonder Boy III

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

It’s not often someone sends you a message saying “here’s a video I made featuring a cover of the Monster Village theme from Wonder Boy III. Also it’s been done on a banjo.” Well that’s exactly what happened to me recently and the video was supplied by a certain Ollie LongZ; a talented little musician who has recently taken to arranging banjo covers of video game themes. Check out the impressive little arrangement below:

Here’s hoping Ollie has more SEGA covers up his sleeve, but if you’re interested you can check out another of Ollie’s cover’s by clicking here (it’s a Castlevania one).
