Dr. Andonut's Lab (EarthBound Music) Acoustic Guitar Version 

This is "Dr. Andonut's Lab" from the Super Nintendo game Earthbound (MOTHER 2) soundtrack, only it's entirely played on acoustic guitar.

Extended to 30 minutes in length for studying, meditation, and / or zone out purposes.

At the beginning, you hear me pluck the opening chord. An acoustic guitar can't sustain infinitely, so I ran the plucked chord through a compressor with a long release and rode the gain dial, then I duplicated the resulting processed chord, continuously adding fades to make the chord sustain throughout. I was surprised how much the resulting sound resembled an organ drone. If you listen closely, you can hear an audio book on the immune system playing in the other room that accidentally was picked up on the microphone used to record the guitar.

EarthBound Soundtrack Played On A Super Rare Synthesizer ✨🌏✨ 

These days, the Synergy is a super rare synthesizer to come across in the wild. Originally produced in 1982, it is estimated that less than 100 are still in operation across the globe. Interestingly, it ran off cartridges, something it had in common with the Super Nintendo!

Recently, I had the opportunity to recreate some of my favorite music from EarthBound on a Synergy. This video demonstrates some of the sound textures the synthesizer is capable of, while showcasing a beloved soundtrack through a unique lens.
