Music


"The Adventures of Bayou Billy" has some really cool music. Unfortunately, I don't have the game cartridge. When I get it, I'll use the Sound Test mode to record sound files from the game, and I'll put 'em up here. I'll also be putting up MIDIs and MODs that people make.

MP3

These MP3s were made from WAV files recorded with NESticle. The music is from the ROM, not the actual game cartridge. They sound good, though. They are all recorded at 22050 hertz, 16-bit, mono.

Now if you like this song a lot and wanna learn to play it yourself, here's how ya do it. The intro riff is just arpeggios based on this fingering for an E7 chord: x7675x. The chords are basically just E7, with your occasional D -> A change thrown in.

If you want something more professional to learn from, pick up a copy of "Creedence Clearwater Revival Complete", a book full of music sheets to a bunch of their songs, at Musicland.
