Genshin Impact Fans Are Playing Incredible Covers With The Windsong Lyre

Genshin Impact’s Windblume festival is in full swing, and players are loving the festival’s Ballads of Breeze rhythm-based mini-game challenges which must be completed using the Windsong Lyre.

Whilst the game has a number of pre-set tracks which you’re required to play in order to unlock rewards, some fans are taking things a step further by playing some of their own favorite songs using the Windsong Lyre, just for funsies.

Players have been busying themselves with creating covers of anything from Evangelion’s opening music, to Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up. But here are some of our most recent favorites, kicking off with a gorgeous rendition of Yu-Peng Chen’s epic Rapid Wildfires track from Genshin Impact’s own OST:

Next we have a dreamy duet specially for Zelda fans out there. A pair of Genshin Impact players got together to collab on Song of Storms from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and the result is charming to say the least:

Our third pick of the day is something slightly more comedic entitled Honking in the 90’s. If you’re an astute observer, you’ll immediately have an idea of what you’re in for just from the name. Take a look:

If you still need a bit more context after that, that was a cover of the iconic tune Running in the 90’s, which featured in the street racing anime series Initial D. The song played during the series’ very first race between Takumi Fujiwara and Keisuke Takahashi, as well as during the battle between Takeshi Nakazato.

And the goose thing is, well…your guess is as good as ours. No complaints here though.

According to a bunch of players, because a number of notes are missing from the Windsong Lyre, it’s difficult to accurately reproduce any songs which include those notes unfortunately. Still, that hasn’t stopped players from trying (and succeeding, evidently) using what they do have to create some really impressive song covers such as these.
