Jogeir Liljedahl – Guitar Slinger (Armandox 2015 Remake)

For my latest track I went all the way back to my Commodore 64 and Amiga-roots and made a rework of a classic ‘MOD’ by Jogeir Liljedahl.

Back in the early 90’s I started composing and making music with Protracker and Fasttracker on the Commodore 64 and Amiga homecomputers. It was in the haydays of sampling when we had but 4 tracks available and had to hand-program all sounds, melodies and such by hand. It was more programming/coding than hands-on writing and composing we can do nowadays with modern DAW’s. There was a vivid demoscene which brought out numerous timeless and epic tunes. One of those really stood out for me. It was Guitar Slinger made by Norwegian Jogeir Liljedahl. His music has such a human and organic feel you could hardly hear it was ‘coded’ in a program. In honour of one of his songs (Guitar Slinger) I decided to do this remake.
