end credits theme   Saturday, February 3, 2007 (10:25 p.m.) 

Does anyone one know if the end credits piano theme is available on sheet music?
I've tried locating the theme to find only this very simplified version.

Hi Claude,

I recently learned the end credits theme by ear. It took a while to work out but I can now play it. I too couldn't find any sheet music for it. I slowed the track down to make sure my transcription was accurate. I haven't written it down formally though. You can hear me playing it on my page at www.overplay.com/joshualeigh

Same here....I dont know quite how to "slow down" a track at the moment...soooo I too would be happy to fork over a few quid for sheet music.

One thought I had was to record it as a midi file and then it should be a matter of time before it can be converted to a score.

Also Claude, I did find a version on the musicnotes website. Search under "Over the Moon" and youll find it. It sounds close, not quite as close as Josh's but it sounds pretty good.

Thanks for that bit of info Rob. I checked it out. Doesnt sound too bad but i'm hoping that it sounds better than that computer generated piano sound.It sounded a little out of key not, sure why though,coz it should be the genuine music.

Claude,

The musicnotes version actually does sound pretty good when you experiment with it..its an "arrangement" not a score, but at least it gets you in the ballpark. In terms of trying to get started with the piece, its WELL worth the $5 download. That and the fact that there are zero other options!! As far as the "key" being off...in Josh's version (which is pretty much 99% there), he is (correctly) playing the right hand an octave higher than the "sheet music". Im in my second year of playing piano so my version is awkward at best but hey, that piece is also one of the reasons I started playing at all! Good luck, please post on your progress with it.

Rob

• Now Playing: nothing  

>Rob,
downloaded 'over the moon' from musicnotes.com.You're absolutely right about it being an "arrangement" and not the score. As i began practising it, i noticed that a few bars sounded not quite right.eg 4th bar, 2nd triplet sounds out of key..(aside from an octave lower).I actually changed the first note in the triplet from E flat to F. Also in the 3rd bar, the last note in each of those triplets end in F. After listening to Josh's recording, I reckon it may be D flat instead.

I tried confirming against the score but found it a tad difficult. Williams plays it quite fast.Playing those triplets against 2 quavers can be tricky.To play it at the actual tempo is going to be challeging.Still....i'l press on.

Claude

Rob,
How's the practise going Re:"Over the Moon" by J Williams?
Ive made some progress in both left and right hands although this 2 notes in the left to 3 in the right business is a bit annoying to grasp properly.
You?

Claude,

Seems to be moving along...I spend at least a few minutes on it every day. I know exactly what you mean about this 2 hands playing 2 different arpegio stuff. Its painful. That being said, Im at the point where I can manage the Db beginning section--but only hands separate. When I try to put both together things start falling apart. But the progress is slowly appearing...im better off than I was 2 months ago!!

Also, to try and tackle this, I am going to see how far I get with the "transcription software" that exists online...ideally it could solve a lot of our problems!!
