In case there are people who don't read the Double Fine news regularly or browse YouTube for Grim Fandango, check this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6EkarvQyjM) out. It's a video of a piece of GF music being played in the video games live concert. It's lovely!

Don't think so. It looks like his normal face, even if it is a bit blurry.

Just in case you weren't aware, that's Peter McConnell on the violin, composer of the Grim Fandango soundtrack.

Yeah, definetily Swanky Maximino, for which the piano sheet music is available here (http://www.grim-fandango.com/fan_sheet_music.php) and bass tabs are available here (http://bluecasket.grim-fandango.com/tabs.php?type=bass&sort=song_title) :)

Could you add more piano sheets to that page? I couldn't find any other songs

As far as I know no one else has created any piano sheet music apart from the three already on that page. I had a go at creating some sheets myself using the midis (http://www.grim-fandango.com/downloads.php#music) but it was too time consuming. Feel free to create some yourself though :D

I think I've just worked out the first part of what will be the guitar tab for Swanky Maximino, playing it from memory of course

That video was so awesome. I didn't think they'd ever play this music live.
It sounds good on the violin!

Love for GF swells inside of me everytime I see this.

I actually prefer the live version to the game version as this just seems to be that much more swanky.

Do you know if they played any other songs?
