There are a lot of covers of this pretty little song from Skyrim, some of them very popular, and I was stumped with how to bring 'something new' to this track. I decided not to go the slow ballad way - instead I pumped up the tavern jollyness. I did this in a Celtic session-style, complete with instrumental solos and rougher playing. Just a single vocal line. Really happy with the results...it's definitely tavern music XD
I also wrote two new verses for this song. It was way too short to span into a workable song (at least for me) so I wrote and added verses 3 and 4. Hopefully they fit and aren't jarring with the rest of the lyric.
For the video, I booted up Fraps and had some fun filming in my game, making use of a lot of console commands, ha ha. I ended up with over 300 GBs of footage and it took me two days to go through it to edit into video form. haaaa....
I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for listening
