Sonic Boss Level (Game Gear) (Tab)
I think I’m pitching at a very narrow audience with this one. As it happens, I don’t have any memories of this tune either – never had a Game Gear. I came across it because I’ve recently grown an obsession with 8-bit music. And Sonic has some serious tunes . I love this one. And I have to work up a full uke version of Nullsleep’s Her Lazer Light Eyes. There’s been a half done version in the Rag Bag (PDF link) for years.
In my 8-bit searches I stumbled across this tune and immediately decided it was made to played on the uke. I was a little bit wrong. There are are tricky bits in the arrangement: a long stretch up to the 12th fret and a lot sliding around. But I think it turned out quite well.
The video that I used to work out the tune from has been pronged by YouTube but you can just about hear it in this video – along with the little ‘Level Clear’ tune that’s at the end of my arrangement.
