  1. He's Strong, he's bold, and on a quest for gold! The best sea cap' around, or so I'm told! A real man of the sea!


    Another arrangement from Zelda I'd like to share with you today. Really happy with getting the "descending notes" parts going alongside some held notes (at 0:03 and 0:41). Some really awkward finger positions for this one too. Hope you like it.

  2. Dovahkiin, dovakhiin, naal ok zin los vahriin!

    A really fun, high energy song to play. Very happy with how this one came out.

    A song that brings back memories of my early Uni days. The game this song is from has been remastered and released consistently for the last 10-12 years on all major consoles, and as such the song itself is quite well known among the right crowd.

    Hope you enjoy, and I appreciate it if you take the time to give it a listen :)

  3. As it turns out, I've done a recording of Concerning Hobbits (The Shire) just recently. My video will be up on YouTube tomorrow, along with the sheet music on MuseScore. It's an Anglo Concertina, not English, but you might still be interested

  4. Papers, please! Cause no trouble! Glory to Arstotzka!

    Game synopsis: "In Papers, Please, the player takes on the role of a border-crossing immigration officer in the fictional dystopian Eastern Bloc–like country of Arstotzka, which has been and continues to be at political hostilities with its neighbouring countries. The game takes place at a migration checkpoint. As the immigration officer, the player must review each immigrant and return citizens' passports and other supporting paperwork against an ever-growing list of rules using a number of tools and guides. Tasks include allowing in those with the proper paperwork while rejecting those without all proper documents, detaining those with falsified information, and balancing personal finances."

    A very interesting game; trying to balance following the law with paying your families expenses, trying to help those in need, potentially letting in criminals if it means your family can survive another day, and avoiding the jackboot of the government. Sticks with you after playing for a long time. The theme itself is very marching, almost monotonous, representing the daily grind of the ultra-bureaucratic regime the player is living under.

  5. Drink up me hearties, yo ho!

    Not exactly an "interesting" arrangement; I played it with power-chords from almost beginning to end, not too much going on with the left hand. Still good fun though, and full of energy!

    Attached the sheet music for those interested, using Gary Coover's tablature system. Sheet music is also available here: https://musescore.com/user/37659330/scores/11384338

  6. Sorry if I misunderstood the situation. Tbh I don't know much about ABC notation other than seeing a few files here and there, but I have created some manual file conversion programs before. I was hoping the fix would be something similar, but if they're already converted, maybe an "ABC Repairer" type program exists somewhere?


    Still, if there's anything can do to help, please let me know. I'll probably still give a few files a look-see.

  7. I'm a programmer by trade, and this sounds like a perfect candidate for a little custom python script. I'll have a download of the database when it's uploaded, but if someone can manually fix a few (~3) of the files to give me a good comparison of what the conversion should be like, I can try write a small script to automate the process. No promises, but it's worth a shot; 25000 tunes is a lot to convert otherwise.

  8. A movie I watched many years ago, but remember enjoying very much. I hadn't thought too much about the soundtrack, but that song is bringing back memories.


    Reminds me of Yann Tiersen and the Amelie soundtrack. It's in the key of B♭, I wonder if it's also doable on a C/G Anglo...


    I would also really like to hear your arrangement :)

  9. After a year and a half of back and forth (the first video evidence I have of my attempting this song was back in November 2021) I have finally managed to finish my arrangement of the theme song to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!

    The key jumps around a fair bit, but the most challenging parts were in the key of A♭.

    Overall, very proud of this one. Very rewarding personally.

    Sheet music is included in post, and available here: https://musescore.com/user/37659330/scores/10749085

  10. Managed to get a semi-decent recording of Return of the Obra Dinn.

    I had to do a few changes from the original song, due to concertina limitations:
    * I opted for a lower Bb at the end of bar 27, as the higher octave Bb that is required does not exist on a 30 button Anglo Concertina. It sounds fine with the lower Bb here.
    * I edited the end of bar 48 as it requires a high Ab that we do not have. The lower Ab didn't sound right so this a bigger change to the original, but sounds ok.

    As always, sheet music attached, and big shout-out to the Gary Coover for his tablature system.
