TTD Music with real instruments

Post by jayzhead » 16 Jul 2018 19:45

Hey TT forums! I'm a long time TTD fan, it was my favorite teenage game, and I kept playing it well into my twenties. I hadn't played it for a while (I do still play Transport Fever quite A LOT).

I'm not sure how off-topic this really is, but I made a video of Movin' On, my favorite TTD tune, with all live instruments, all played by me, because why not :D It's a bit of fun, and I figured some other TTD fans that grew up with that lovely soundtrack in their ears would like it too, so... here it is, my homage to TTD :D

Feel free to continue this topic with links to other TT tunes performed live, I think I saw a few over the years floating around youtube :)

Nice playing ! I never thought what instruments were TTD musics were played on, but that's definitely an interesting arrangenent :D


I personally liked the "Can't Get There from Here".

This is excellent stuff. I'm impressed with some of the playing here.

ok you've proven you can play as a band without a band, but can you also play the instruments without the instruments???

Oh my. For years have I been playing OTTD without any music at all. At first, I had a trouble recognising the tune. It didn't take long, astonishment came next :bow:
I guess if original music back in the days could be as robust as this rendition, I would've never switched it off ;)

I liked how the performers enjoyed the tune as well, great work!
