Title: Remind of You
Original: エクステンドアッシュ ～ 蓬莱人 (Extend Ash ~ Hourai Victim)
More t=NODE, because of their awesomeness. Well, this time it's something less hectic and something just plain relaxing.
I felt like I was neglecting the acoustic/unplugged side of Merlin since, well, as you guys know, this playlist was initially made to be dedicated to just acoustic tracks, but since there are so little of them around classic was added in.
So, anyways, dragonslayerEMP requested an arrange of Extend Ash, IN's Extra stage theme, remember? Where Keine goes werewolf on your ass. Unfortunately this theme is a bit neglected when it comes to arranges, well, actually I think the song has a BUNCH of potential, not much artists manage to pull it out though. Notable mentions are Toshinori, Virus Key, Taka and StudioA', oh and did I mention Toshinori? (Slide master supreme and my idol, better known as 平松 俊紀 from SWORD OF JUSTICE)
Oh and yeah, of course, UI-70 for those Latin jazz lovers. Yeah, it seems shredders tend to pull out the best side of the song (is it because the main melody is shredder-like?), well that's not really true though, since most arranges are good, and besides this peaceful arrange is perfect in my book.
I think the arrange is slightly melancholic and nostalgic, but at the same time I can imagine sitting next to a fire and reminiscing about the \"good ol' times\". You guys wanted some music box love (particularly 85centimeters) I think this is the best I can come to without actually using a music box arrange. An acoustic guitar, a piano and a keyboard, that's all you need for this arrange.
\"Kinda laid back for an extra, huh?
Sorta feels like a test of my courage not to scare anybody. (Not)
I'm actually a little unsure about it, but
I extended it.
I took Extend and extended it\"

... lol, that's where the name comes from... I can't believe it...
My trust in ZUN went down by 0.186.

Thanks for watching.
