Man, it's some sort of perfect cover! ^______^
Hahha, thanks a lot!
I probably could have managed to do a better production, but I like the arrangement I came up with :D
It's not the highest quality render imaginable, but the performance is wonderful, and I like the choirs, as 'lazy' as they might be. :D My favorite part is the high part that starts around 02:10.
Hey again! Thanks for reviwing so much stuff of mine :)
I'd love to return the favor, but alas I lack the time at the moment. I'll make sure to take a deeper look at your things at a later point though :D
I'm glad you liked my performance and the instruments :3
The part at 02:10 is actually quite a bit different than the original, but I like it too XD
My favorite Final Fantasy game!
This was an amazing cover! Your arrangement was beautiful, did you do it all in one take? can you share me some of your piano skills? :)
I like how you didn't take some of the errors out this will make it sound much more humanized. (I didn't really hear any mistakes though)
you should do "Back to Zanarkand" aswell :D
Final Fantasy is a great series of games! FFX is my second favorite game from the series, without a doubt :D
I'm glad you liked my arrangement, and yes, I did it all in one take. There where a few small errors that just sounded so wrong I edited them out through the MIDI-file (I only did one recording of the piece, as I didn't have much time), but this track is mostly unedited (I ran the MIDI-file through the piano again once I had fixed it).
"can you share me some of your piano skills? :) "
=> Only if you share your amazing composing and mixing skills with me! :D
Yeah, usually I don't remove any errors at all. I think they're part of the playing, to the most part.
There are several mistakes, but it's always much more difficult for the listener to find them, I've noticed :p
You know, "To Zanarkand" is my favorite piano piece of all time, and the very first real piece that I ever learned, more than 5 years ago now. I can play it quite well, and I'm sure I'll record a version of it some day :D
Thanks again for reviewing and for being so awesome! ;)
Amazing. You're only getting better and better at piano.
"I kind of came up with the arrangement of(f) the top of my head while learning the chords and melodies." WHAT ARE YOU
I love the way you incorporate those beautiful arpeggios at places like 1:53. They seem a little bit off-tempo, but they sound so nice it's almost forgivable. :P
There also is a bit more reverb in this song than I'd like, but it's still great. While composition is important, rearrangement is another cool way to expand your musical abilities, and I think you're doing really well at that.
Great job! Loved it a lot.
That might be, but I'm not improving as fast as I'd hope to, as I barely have any time to spare for playing the piano :(
You know, if you keep correcting my grammatical errors in my descriptions (though I could swear I wrote it with two f's yesterday!), I'll just have to leave them there so that your reviews will make sense! XD
What am I? I dun knuw :3
When I began learning pieces I always looked up specific arrangements that I liked, and played pretty much exactly alike (from sheet music or a MIDI file for example).
As of late, I've been learning songs very loosely and played them kinda like I want. After a while I tend to stick with a certain arrangement of my own that has come from apparently nowhere. It's almost like writing your own piece, so learning is a lot faster, and playing the songs gets easier o.O
Those arpeggios are really fun to play (and perhaps not as difficult as some might think, although as you mentioned, the tempo is probably way off :p).
This is the result of me exaggerating my piano playing to the max :'D
The production after recording is less that half assed for sure :)
Might be that rearrangement is a good way to expand musical abilities, but I know I'd have a really hard time trying to come up with serious rearrangements of songs! If I try to put too much genuine thought behind what I'm doing, I'm destined to fail XD
Thanks again (I love your stuff a lot too!) XP
Beautiful playing. I'm kinda jealous of people who can play stuff like that on a piano.
Believe me - I'm jealous of people who can play better than me too XD
That is why I'm striving to get better :p
Btw, you make cool stuff :D
