More often than not nowadays, the guitar is being used to help video game franchises such as The Legend of Zelda be recognized more prominently on the musical stage. That is what Bad Hairline Productions is looking to do with the power of Zelda, as the artist just recently released The Zelda Guitar Collection, which is a record that features guitar covers of well-known tunes from the franchise.

The 22-track album features music from games in the series such as Majora’s Mask, Ocarina of Time, and The Wind Waker. In the comments section for the video above, the artist brings up how the original title for this album was going to be The Zelda 64 Guitar Collection. He even replied to a different comment, saying that he hopes to one day release a limited physical version of the record.

Suffice to say, BadHairlineProductions loves covering all kinds of video game music, as the message on his official YouTube channel is simple:

“I play music from videogames. All of them. All the music. All the games.”

The Germany-based artist has kept that promise too, as according to his X profile, he has tackled over 600 songs from 200+ games in the span of just over two years. And he doesn’t appear to be joking, as this musician has covered music from games such as PokémonFar Cry, Castlevania, Earthbound, Shadow of the Colossus, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, Super Mario RPG, Bravely Default, and more. The Zelda Guitar Collection isn’t his first record either, as he has also done cover albums for Chrono TriggerFinal Fantasy VII, Octopath Traveler II, and Hollow Knight.

Bad Hairline Productions’ The Zelda Guitar Collection is available now on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon Music, Qobuz, Pandora, Deezer, and Napster. You can even purchase the whole album on iTunes and Amazon (for $8.99 USD).

As for Bad Hairline Productions himself, you can follow him on Discord, Spotify, X, Instagram, Odysee, and Twitch. He even has a Google Doc where you can request video game music you want him to cover on his next Twitch stream.
