Ewan Dobson is a Canadian that has really awesome skills with their hands and the guitar, and we bet your ears are going to be the judges.. but before hearing something, lets know a little about Ewan..

From Wikipedia we got that:

Ewan Dobson is a Canadian fingerstyle guitarist noted for the creativity and intensity of his playing as well as his use of extended technique. Dobson’s music borrows from bluegrass, classical music, folk, techno, heavy metal as well as trance. In 1993, he was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and mild Tourette’s Syndrome. In support of Tourette’s Syndrome awareness Ewan has performed at the Tourette’s Syndrome National Conference in Canada. As a classical guitarist Dobson won numerous awards such as the Grand Prizes of both the Burlington Rotary Fall Music Festival and the Pickering Rotary Music Festival (1996 and 1998) as well as the D’addario Scholarship from Kiwanis Music Festival which is given to the top classical guitarist in the competition. As a fingerstyle guitarist, Ewan placed first at the 5th Annual Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar Competition. Two month after this he competed in the 38th Annual International Fingerstyle Guitar Competition in Winfield, Kansas and placed third. Immediately following this he placed first in the Acoustic Category of the 4th Annual Montreal Guitar Grand Prix.


We have made a selection of 3 of tunes that like the most of this amazing guitar player.. Now let’s see what this is all about.. embrace the power of the classical guitar !! Feel how your face is melting!!


Time by Ewan Dobson – This REEEALLY goes great with a Megaman level!  Or Contra..!! Just use your imagination!! *PEWW PEWWW ARGG*


Time 2 by Ewan Dobson – A more techno tune.. will suit good with a fighting game maybe Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat (yeah he is dressed like Rayden but I don’t say MK because of that) or something futuristic like Metroid.


Level 5 by Ewan Dobson – Some adventure game, maybe Pokemon, Chrono Triger, Diablo or any other RPG, it’s a great music to explore the world.


Korobeiniki by Ewan Dobson – I think I don’t have to say anything else with here… just 1 thing.. F@KNG AMAZINGG !!! Bricks are coming down from the sky :D  TETRIS FTW !!!


Our opinion is that this amazing guitar player should fit incredible well in a video game, his 8-bit music styles is impressive!!! It’s an interesting twist of the 8-bit games music, imagine a cover of a Megaman song, or The Legend of Zelda Theme made by him (with the one from tetris we got amaze..) just awesome !!
