A Musical Quiz…

I play the piano, and often when I need a break from the hardcore classical pieces I turn to my gaming hobby for inspiration. Game music has always been fun to learn and play and it specially makes me all warm and fuzzy when I see two of the things I love come together so nicely.

One fine morning, I picked up a piece from a game for pure fun and to give myself a bit of a sight-reading exercise. In my random eccentricity, I decided I didn’t want to play in flats afterall so I transposed it to different key and added my own embellishments. So much for my sight reading exercise >.<

The fun quiz today: Anyone recognise the piece and/or the game it’s from? Care to take a shot at it? Virtual brownies for the winner!
