Guitar Collections FINAL FANTASY IV
July 19, 2018
All music arranged, performed, and recorded by William Carlos Reyes
"I’ve always enjoyed the Piano Collections FINAL FANTASY series. There’s a certain purity and consistency that the series offers, and I’ve always wondered why Squaresoft (then Square Enix) never duplicated it with other instruments. I have a personal preference for the sound of the guitar, and after having listened to the various CDs that accompany the FINAL FANTASY guitar sheet music books and being unimpressed, I knew it was time to delve in.
I wanted to start with FINAL FANTASY IV, just as the Piano Collections series did. Also, it’s my favorite FINAL FANTASY game, with so many wonderful pieces of music, that I knew I was going to have a hard time narrowing it down to just 11 tracks. I also knew based on William Carlos Reyes’s past arrangements that he’d be perfect for this project with his ability to layer his performances in a very natural and pleasing way, and I couldn’t be happier with the result.
I won’t make it a secret. I want Guitar Collections FINAL FANTASY to be a series. I’ve already worked up a list of songs to cover from FINAL FANTASY V, so your support goes a long way towards helping us make that happen. Thank you for listening!" -JAYSON NAPOLITANO, PRODUCER, SCARLET MOON RECORDS
