Percussion covers of TMNT and DuckTales NES music

Post by Mikazo » Sat May 22, 2021 8:37 pm

Recently I tried overlaying some percussion patterns inspired by Brazilian samba over some video game tracks. I listened to the tunes and thought these kinds of rhythms would go well with them. My knowledge about this kind of music is somewhat incomplete, so this may be more of an approximation. Anyway, it's cartoon-related, so!

I recorded all the parts myself using my electronic drum kit. A lot of instruments were used here such as the drum kit, surdo drum, timbales, shekere, cowbell, agogo bells, conga drums (which I honestly don't know very much about), guiro, woodblocks, whistle, vibraslap, and I can't think of any others.
