Nostalgia (Only my Railgun – transcription)


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

Well then, see you next season!


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

Transcription: Level 5 – judgelight – (Railgun OP 2)

I think it’s time for an update: My piano transcription of level 5 judgelight, the second Opening of to aru kagaku no railgun

Althought the second OP isn’t as catchy as the first OP, I still think it’s a enjoyable opening.

I’ve put quite a lot effort into this transcription, so please comment if you liked it.

Sorry, if the transcription is too hard to play (especially the octaves at the end). Therefore I’ve made a simplified version for those, who need it.

Transcription: Only my railgun (simplified) for piano

not satisfied

Ok, I just realized, that my first version was way too hard to play. (which means it’s crap, just forget about it)

So I made a modified version of my original transcription. Now it has an “average” transcription difficulty (so I assume)

Just check it out:   Only my railgun(easy ver.).pdf

Midi + mp3:   Only my railgun

However, if you are ready to accept some real challenge, here is the final (expert) version of Only my railgun

Have fun!


Transcription: “Only my railgun” for piano

So lets just begin! I just finished my first and newest work with the composer software:

Allow me to introduce my premier work of transcription:


To aru kagaku no Railgun Opening:  Only my Railgun by fripside

In my holy opinion this is pretty much the best OP of the current fall season. It has a catchy rhythm and some cool electronic voices. Especially the verse is well done because of the short piano solo part.

It wasn’t transcribed yet, so I thought I’ll just do it instead.

The music sheet : Only my railgun.pdf

The associated MIDI file: Only my railgun.mid

I might possibly post a video of me playing the piece but unfortunately I don’t have a good microphone. I’ll cover this later.

Anyway: Please give me some feedback and suggestions, what I should improve.

It’s my first work after all ^^
