So for day two of FIRE5 week, I'm going with a song you probably heard a little bit of during this week's Classic Game of the Week! For those that haven't heard, the original guitar game Konami's Guitar Freaks was featured as this week's game, and one of the songs talked about during it was this classic track. I do have to say from all the songs that were ever in the game, this one was my favorite by far!
Also this was the 'long version' which was played during the segment, so it has a pretty long 'build-up' (which interestingly enough, you actually have to play the notes to it.) I have fond memories of DarkSakura's significant other, the Notorious D.A.N. playing this in GF 3rd MIX on PS2 at their house one day. At the time I had no idea there was a long version, I'd only ever heard the original.
Lastly for a special treat, after the jump I've embedded a video of a LIVE performance of this track by the composer himself, Mutsuhiko Izumi!
