Nostalgia (Only my Railgun – transcription)

biribiri

remember this pic? :3

Hello there, everyone!
Sorry for going MIA so suddenly, but I wasn’t feeling well lately and I lack any motivation so I couldn’t finish any transcriptions.

Therefore I decided to (finally) upload a video of my very first anime transcription:

The Opening of To aru Kagaku no RailgunOnly my Railgun
(see original post here)

Looking back at my very first sheet I published, I am quite surprised how much my  transcibing technique have changed.

I think TehIshter ‘s comment best sums up my progression:

Interesting to see the progress in your transcription style. Back then was more MIDI-like and constricted to the middle of the keyboard, whereas now you take advantage of all the 88 keys of the piano.

Here’s a side to side comparison of the Only my Railgun transcription – the 2009 and the current version: (Strictly speaking, I re-created the sheet from the scratch again because I lost the original sibelius file, so I ccouldn’t edit the old Railgun sheet anymore)

I just noticed I improved the note spacing a lot

I just noticed I also improved the note spacing

Did I mention that Girls und Panzer is still the best show of the fall season 2012?

10.000 Subscribers!!! I love you guys (Triple update)

Wow.

Just wow.

When I started my Youtube channel two and half a years ago, I would NEVER EVER have thought that I would gain so many subscribers. I mean, all I did was just some random piano videos, focusing on covering Anime Openings/Endings and occasionally Soundtracks. My only cool feature was the sheet I provided to everyone.

…th…thank you … everyone…

But still, 10.000 people…

from all over the world….

subscribing my humble channel…

… *sob*

….ahem….

Anyway, thank you everybody for your support, for watching my Vids and playing the sheets I made. Seriously.

And in order to celebrate that, I’ll present you something special.

Remember the post I made, when I had gained 1000 subscribers one and a half year ago? I played a piano medley of various different anime OP and ED, and said there will be sheets someday.

Well guess what, it’s about (fucking) TIME!

I’ll presend you, the  LONG-AWAITED SHEETS FROM MY PIANO MEDLEY!!!

– NOT, because I have only transcribed three of the seven pieces due to time constraints,…

… but don’t worry!  There will be sheets in the future… for sure…. I mean… I PROMISE!

And instead, I spent more effort than usual to transcribe the first three sheets.

So let’s begin with the TRIPLE UPDATE!

1. Shakugan no shana ED 1- Yoake Umarekuru Shoujo

Why didn’t anyone ever try to transcribe this absolutely gorgeous Ending of Shakugan no Shana? Seriously, it’s a mystery.

Anyway, the sheet I made is very similar to the version I played in the piano medley, only slightly improved in a few sections.

2. CLANNAD OP – Megumeru ~cuckool mix 2007~

There exists sheets of Megumeru already on Josh’s Anime sheets, but only the version played in the original Visual Novel of CLANNAD, not the anime remix version and I personally think the anime version is better than the original.

I also made a sort of “remix”, because I included a part of the CLANNAD After Story Opening Toki wo kizamu uta in the sheet.

Henceforth, this sheet should be called

CLANNAD OP – Megumeru ~cuckool mix 2012~  (okay it was a joke)

3. Eureka Seven OP 4 – Sakura

The infamous Fourth Opening of the epic mecha series Eureka Seven by Nirgilis. The OP is still one of my all time favorite OP, because the absolutely brilliant use of Amazing grace in a modern J-rock song.
So I extended the OP with the Amazing grace theme at the end, to give it a more proper finish.

Alright, I hope you enjoyed the sheets and let’s hope that I’ll finish the remaining sheets one day…

Well, enjoy those sheets for the time being, and see you next time!

Two years later, ARIA is still my all time favorite Anime

Christmas Special transcription: Lumis Eterne – Aria OST

Anyone still remember this scene from Aria?

Merry christmas everyone!

Because today is such a special day, I thought I would make something special for you, a transcription which fits perfectly to Christmas: Lumis Eterne from the Soundtrack of Aria.

Only a few of you people will know this piece, but I think every (true) Aria fan could  recognize it: It’s the Canzone of Alice Caroll, who sang it in the 11th episode of Aria the Origination.

By doing this, I think pretty much every track from the Aria Soundtrack is now  transcribed – it’s finally complete!

It’s one of my longest transcriptions (over 5 minutes) and, in my opinion, my most advanced transcription (not in term of difficulty, but transcription skill) . Because I’ve put every knowledge and transcribing technique I have learned so far in this transcription and I worked on this project with all my heart and soul, it’s a sheet made purely of love (for Aria), so I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.

Also, this will probably be the last classical-style transcription I will make (simply because it’s too time consuming). Starting next year, I’ll transcribe again in my “old style”, meaning, less “original material” and more accuracy with more frequent updates. (and less burnouts)

All right folks, that’s all I want to say, I wish you all a happy christmas and above all,

thank you for all your support and comments so far, everyone!

And yes, Aria is still my favorite Anime of all time.

I nostalgia’d (Digimon ED “Butterfly”)

remember when Digimon used to be awesome?

Guess what I just found in my “Transcription Drafts” folder: A completed Digimon anime music sheet!

I’ve written this a long time ago and have completely forgotten this one. I think it was originally transcribed for my little sister. (She also plays the piano, but not as good as me :P) Back then she was a huge Digimon fan and she really wanted to play this piano version of “Butterfly”.

I remember when the first season of the Digimon aired on the german TV,. Back then, I was so excited and thrilled with this great series so that I haven’t been able to keep one’s mind off Digimon. Ah, those were the days…. (and I still have some Digimon soundtracks on my mp3 collection)

Well, since it’s written for my little sister, you can guess it is designed rather easy, so the most of you can play it with ease.
