Music: Negaraku

Backtracking to the Korean national anthem makeover project... My guess is, efforts to muster up at least 20 comments to re-do Aegukga (愛國歌/애국가) has hit a stump. Come on people, surely we can do better than 15 comments?

Anyway, while waiting on those comments to pile up past the 20-mark, I had 30 minutes last night to record some guitar riffs. So I present to you the one and only...

*Drum roll


Malaysia's ~ NEGARAKU!

(Click 'HERE' to listen.)

I do apologize if I didn't manage to include drum tracks, as well as doing some post editing to remove that background noise... But if you are convinced that this version of Negaraku is half-decent, go now and spread the good word. Forward THIS post, and leave more comments to have Aegukga remade!

Let's get the project going, sometime in April ~ that's when I'd have left Korea for greener pastures. Hopefully then, lawsuits that may follow over Aegukga's copyrights won't be an issue anymore. :P

Vincent- Why does the Malaysian flag look like the American flag?
That question is not PC enough.
Why do the two flags look similar?

This is like the ALL TIME BEST version of our beloved national anthem.

This is waaaaaayyy better than the upbeat, doubletime version they released like 8 years ago!

I'm nominating you for a 'Datuk'-ship!

Kimcheemonster: You know what... I never really thought about that. But I will dig up the history soon, and maybe do a post about it sometime...

Di.lir'i.us: *Bluses

Jo: I guess some people see SLOW tempo as a sign of respect... but nah, fast is OK too :)

Paul: Wouldn't mind being voted for president too. ;)

Ed: Aiyah... can play anytime, anywhere... won't have to wait till we win the world cup.

Smash/hteekay: Thank you!

Smurfette: Ha ha, hope the kids don't get corrupted.

Max: Back stateside? When?

Howie/Bishop: Ha ha, didn't use sweep at all, but yeah... Pinch harmonics were there. Here's another thing I did... go from A-major to A-minor and back to major at the end of each verse. ;)

Xeno: Well, I heard Cromox were engineers too. Must be an engineer thing to go all out heavy. :P
