George Carl

The slow part from 1:18 to 1:56 is the mouth organ piece played by George Carl in his show. There’s also an interesting part at 3:58 that might be worth checking out.

Glider Pilot
1989 Vibrants
Recreation of the primitive title tune from the C64 game Glider Pilot with better instruments.

The part at 0:15 was used as inspiration for my own FastTracker II tune Dim Jingle in 1998.

Gold Digger (Hiscore)

Originally made for a Boulder Dash clone, but the game was never finished.

Guldkorn Ekspressen (Level #1)

Hacktrick

Cooperation between The Saint and JCH. He hummed the bassline and I added all the rest.

Hard On
1989 Vibrants
The title indicates that this was the first tune to use a technique called hard restart.

Hawaii

Cooperation between MSK and JCH. MSK made the bassline (the part you can hear in the beginning) and the drums. Features probably the longest solos I’ve ever done, starting at 1:37.

Heavy Hit

Imagined as a tune for an end level boss in a game.

There are a few disharmonic mistakes caused by lazy sequence transpositions.
