Description

The download contains sound files that can be used as custom songs for the great mod "Playable Instruments - Play and Bash" by planexuser (see http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=9375 ).
The remix sounds as if two musicians play together the pieces usually played solo by the bards in Skyrim. You can use them if You want to let Your Dovahkiin play music together with one compagnion. There are different combinations of two instruments (lute, flute, drum) in 21 instrumentals. Also included are 4 songs accompanied by drums (female singer, only in GERMAN).
