Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

Well, I can when I get the time. I don't have a program like the one that was used for the other piece, but I know it well enough to tab it out myself. It's a duet though, so you'll need two people to get the full effect. It's actually a pretty beginner piece. The chord changes in the bass are the hardest part and their still pretty easy.

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

First off, I'll just say that I absolutely love anything in Classical Guitar. I would love to own an acoustic with pretty nylon strings. I would just love to.

You play it quite nicely, so I give you kudos!

I like the pieces you've arranged on guitar moreso than piano, but I think you mentioned that in one of your videos (right?). The fact that you made your own arrangement of a song is pretty impressive. Far better than anything I could wish to achieve.

I just have to say that upon listening to the paino of Song of Healing, is that some part of it sounds a little off. I'm not really sure. I could be totally wrong. But the bass part sounds like there's something off.

Overall, really awesome work!

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

Heh, you flatter me. Yea, song of healing was the first song on piano I ever tried to play, so more than likely there is a little something off. That, and the mic I was recording with sucked pretty hard.

But enough excuses . I'm glad you like it, I figured my primary instrument (guitar) would show better than any other. I'm also working on violin right now two, so much worse than piano heh.

Honestly, arranging these songs isn't particularly hard. I've only been reading music for upwards of four months. Of course, I've been playing guitar for much longer but that's not the point. Once you learn the basics well enough it's fairly simple to transfer them, at least from piano to guitar. I haven't tired any other instruments yet.

That being said, these Zelda songs, or I guess any video game songs really, are really good to work with when you're learning music and the notation, transcription, ect. This is for so many reasons. For one, they're songs that you (hopefully) like and can stand to listen to numerous times while practicing, for two, they can range from extremely easy to extremely hard (Koji Kondo is fairly versatile as it turns out) so you have your pick while you progress.

In all honesty, I can say that if it wasn't for Koji Kondo and the LoZ series, specifically N64 and up, I would not be able to do any of this at this point.

PS: Nylon strings rule The only negative thing is that they're really annoying to change.

Well, if that's the case, it's totally understandable - and you did a pretty good job for it being your first attempt at playing. (=

Yeah, I can definantly tell that the guitar is your main instrument. You play it well. And hey, at least you're trying new instruments, that's pretty respectable.

I actually know what you mean. The first couple of songs I learned to play on the piano, back when I did play it, were all from video games. They were easy to read and learn, but I didn't try making any new arrangements.

They do rule - and I have never had the chore of changing them.

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

Again, I appreciate the kind words, knowing that some actually listens to the stuff I put out really keeps my going in terms of music.

On another note, video!

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

Glad you like it, thanks for the kind words.

Heh, I have to say, I don't get many comments on my tut. besides "Geeze dude, how far south do you live?" And yes, that's a real quote from an e-mail I love my accent heh.

I do have some originals actually. I have one piano original that is completed composition wise, but I'm still perfecting it before making a video of it. I may have the sheet music up before the actual video. I have a few others on piano that are incomplete as of yet. In terms of Guitar I have a tendancy of writing awesome progressions and riffs and forgetting them five minutes later, so I'm working on that heh. There is one song I've got the music written for but I'm still working on lyrics, it'll be up sooner or later.

Thanks again for the kind words, keep an eye out for some new stuff.

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

Original!!!

Arrogance was really suppose to be much longer than just the one page that it is. I had to stop it not long after starting it because of college. I figured it was better to end it than leave it incompleted for the time being. I may go back with it later. Tell me what you guys think on my first piano original composition. Video will be coming eventually.

Arrogance:

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

Two originals of completely different genres.

Arrogance, performed in a minor with a string quartet.



RATM wannabe. I just made this to test out the new Fruity Loops program, so excuse the repetativness.



Opinions welcomed as always.

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

Well, I must say, these are all very great arrangements. Also, I did love the Arrogance song. Reminds me of a classic console RPG theme.

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

Thanks for the kind words

It's good to get feedback from fellow musicians. Considering my love of using video game music to practice my notation I take those as great compliments. I won't defend myself with the less complicated bass lines. I agree really, but I wrote that piece on and for the piano. Which is not my primary instrument, and I'm still kind of amateurish on it. But I appreciate the compliments. I've got that other original of mine (assumption) that I might try to do on a string quartet. It's bass is even less exciting

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

They work fairly well with effect. I just have a cheap casio but I love messing with the drums and more eccentric features. Most of the instrument sample sound horrible but they're a few that sound almost like the real instrument. Pitch bend helps heh.

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

I'm getting dangerously addicted to making these. Two of my favorite LoZ songs (both from MM) on a string "quartet" made on finale. Even though it's technically a midi it doesn't really sound like one to me, but that may just be my opinion.

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

UPDATE! WHOO! I put it to a vote and this is what came out. I liked doing this one, it was actually fairly challenging.

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

Up to the Date in the USA....sorry.

Yea, I'm actually really looking for opinions on this one. I put some serious work into it. What's up?

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

Thanks muchly. Like I said, I put some serious work into this one. I had the idea for it months ago and after a failed attempt to put it on guitar I decided to make it into a string piece. I appreciate the kind words, always nice to hear.

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

I'm not particularly proud of this video. It get's off time at one point but oh well. Turns out syncing a video is a lot harder then I originally thought.

Re: Sage Of Fire's Music Place

I do have an external mic actually. Not a good one, but an external. The program tweaked the old videos a bit and I think that's what screwed the audio. I really should've re-recorded one of them at least. I may still do that actually, when time permits.
