I have a love-hate relationship with Skyrim’s bards. They add a lot to the atmosphere of the game, but after a few dozen hours of questing, the handful of songs they sing gets old.
It might not be so bad if you could request they play instrumentals, like this.
Here’s a fantastic acoustic cover of Skyrim’s main menu theme from Rhys Ian Harris. Awesome to see this closeup guitar work. Definitely worth a listen, so check it out.
