So, I've got a bit of a confession to make:
If any of you have seen my list of songs I plan on doing in the future
, you might notice that I want to do a lot of Pokemon Stadium songs. A lot
of Pokemon Stadium songs. The problem is, however, that arranging Pokemon Stadium songs for piano is really hard. There's quite a lot going on in these pieces, and it can be hard to keep track of everything going on while you're arranging.
However, after stumbling across this Youtube channel
, thanks, grandad
I've decided to do some of these harder songs in a sort of roundabout way. I'll initially start by doing what I call a transcription; that is, I will recreate the entire songs and their instruments in Musescore (sorry to those hoping for Finale files
). Then, since I have all the parts right in front of me, I'll use it to create a piano arrangement of the song. Is it needlessly more complicated than it needs to be? Perhaps. Do I really care? No. These "transcriptions" I'll keep separate from my main personal arrangement thread, since they won't be going up on site.
I actually had a fun time making this first one, so let me know what you guys think!
