A cover of “River of Life” from the video game Octopath Traveler.
Very glad I’ve been able to do another Octopath cover, as it’s one of my favourite games that’s come out in the past few years, and possibly has one of my favourite soundtracks of all time!
Admittedly, when I first heard this tune, I just thought it was a nice little piece of music that played once you arrived in Saintsbridge. However, the track definitely grew on me and I very quickly appreciated how beautiful this piece is.
I didn’t want to ruin that feel of this track with heavy guitars and drums, so I decided to keep this all mostly acoustic. The song itself is actually pretty easy to play, so I decided to throw in a bunch of other instruments I don’t usually get to play and help spice up the arrangement! That said, I’m primarily a bassist and guitarist, so don’t just me too harshly on the rest of this!
The Octopath Traveler soundtrack is one of my favourites of all time, so expect more covers in the future, and I hope you enjoyed this cover!
