I just wanted to show you some insane piano playing skill. The soundtrack is from the Merovingian’s chateau fighting scene.

Here is the comparable scene:

Wicked Piano Playing

October 13, 2009

I love videogame musics, even the old ones. So naturally, I found myself searching for people playing videogame soundtracks in piano, which I have shown in this blog before. Recently, I found another really good one. It is from Star Fox back in the N64/playstation era. It used to be one of my favorite games, and I replayed it a lot. One of the soundtrack I really liked is the Star Fox boss battle theme, which is one of my favorite videogame and boss battle music ever. As you can see, she plays the extremely difficult piece very faithfully:

Comparison:

Now, I really want that sheet music, even if I will suck at it. ^_^

Oh, and if you check out her blog, she plays a whole lot more great videogame music.


Favorite Alternate Version of Pachelbel’s Canon in D

May 29, 2009

Update: The one I had didn’t allow embedding, so I got a different one.

…’cept this one is in C and on piano, by George Winston. This is my absolutely favorite music, so I am glad I found a good version of it.


Bach is Killing My Fingers

May 2, 2009

The piece I am trying to play with the piano the initial portion of Bach’s Toccat and Fugue in d minor, which is this:

I don’t really like this music, though. It sounds like someone is smashing on the organ keyboard all the time. But still, the initial part is neat. Even though it is just the begginning, the music is taxing. I swear, I am going to get carpal tunnel syndrome and my fingers are going to fall off. There is this part that is really fast, but at the same time it takes your fingers into a complicated movements. I know the movements now, but I have to synchronize it with my left hand, plus do it at a steady pace, and then go faster as it goes on. It is like this:

By the way, I suggest you check out his channels and website. He teaches piano in an accesible way without the hurdle of music sheets, and he always put up pieces of pop music or classical that you might want to learn. To get the complete parts for all the music in youtube, though, you have to register and pay in his website. After all, he has to make a living.


Ol’ School Videogame Music: Topman

December 20, 2008

Topman was a boss from the videogame Megaman 3. What, don’t you remember!? If you are a gamer, but never have played this one, shame on you! ^_^ Anyways, I found a nice video of two people playing the topman theme with the piano and saxophone.:
