So yeah I’m back (Durarara ED transcription)

Shizuo just kicks ass

First of all: Thank you very much for your kind words for my terrible misfortune with my HDD.

I’ve never thought that I have already gathered such a great readership, and because of you I will continue to provide you with the fastest, most accurate and best anime music transcriptions possible. I was thinking for a long time which anime music I should transcibe next and suddenly I remembered to finish the transcription of the ED of Durarara. I’ve already made the draft for the transcription when the first episode has been aired, but unfortunately it is lost now. Nevertheless I’ve found some time and inspiration (an important factor) and I just completed the transciption.

But before we start I have to make an announcement:

– I’ll only update my blog in the weekend because I’m still in the school and busy at the moment. I have only some spare  time  in the weekends. (you know, it’s not easy to transcibe something and actually write it down.)

-Due to this, I can only handle max. 2 transcriptions in a week. So if there are more requests, I’ll put it on the on-hold list.

– The ongoing requests… yeah sorry. I’ve actually accomplished 5 of the requests but they are all gone now -___- so it’s time for a restart. I’m going to delete all the old posts in the “request” section, but don’t worry, it doesn’t mean, I’ll never accept requests again. I want to filter the older requests, which nobody (probably) cares anymore. It’s no offense, I just want to make a new beginning. If you still demand for your request, you can repost it of course.

– Finally I’ve made some changes in the “Request” section. Wouldn’t mind if you read it 🙂

Okay now back to the actual content of the post: The transcription of the Durarara ED “Trust me” by Matsushita Yuya.

To begin with: Hands down for the best ED of one of the best Anime in this season. This ED was for me an instant hit, I put this ED in the list of my 10 favorite ED’s after I have listened it for the first time. I don’t know why but this ED sounds a lot like “western pop music”. And I listen regulary (besides J-Pop and classic) western pop. Damn this piece is stuck in my head, I’m listening this piece the whole time, it’s just too awesome, I love it.

I have to admit, this transcription is so far one of the most difficult transcriptions I’ve ever made. Due to the “bass” line you have to jump quite some gaps with your left hand. But there are some easy passages too.

As always there is an easier version available. (please just don’t ignore it, give it a try, it sounds really nice too. And it’s playable for the most of you )
