I've worked pretty hard on this [since late January/early February] and wasn't going to post up here until I got it just right. It's not perfect but I did my best. I listened to 'The Wreckage' & notated it as close as I could to the actual version, even adding my own flavour here & there. Comment to lemme know what you [whoever you are] think about it. I'm currently working on "Superhero" and will post it up here when I'm done w/ it. Wink

NOTE: To save you time you can download [and check out] the (attachments) down in the signature area. No having to go to any file-sharing sites or anything. Since it's hard work working on sheet music I like to usually work on one arrangement at a time. Smiley

These are very cool, thanks! You don't by any chance have any youtube vids playing it do you? It helps me when I'm learning to see/hear someone playing it.

That's great, thanks. I seriously admire people who can transcribe music because I have the melodic ability of a spoon, so cheers!

Thanx lots for commenting, I appreciate it. [Didn't think anyone would respond but I guess I'd have to wait, lol.] Wink Believe me, I've really wanted to for YEARS now, but unfortunately I don't have a webcam [and I won't be getting a laptop until after my birthday -- July 1st -- and I'll be sure to get one that contains one b/c my current PC is almost 5 years old and has that sorry Windows Vista]. But I'll be sure to do just that when I'm able.

As for 'Superhero' [it was pretty simple to transcribe which is why I got it done a lot quicker] I didn't add the lyrics b/c it was pretty difficult to do so and didn't want it looking sloppier or taking up more space. I figure y'all already know the words, anyhow. Moreover I might take down & put the pdf. & mid./midi. files after making minor adjustments.

BTW I use MuseScore [free notation software] to do sheet music. After going thru many programs this is the best (free) one. The ones that were better had only 30-60 day-trial periods and afterwards you either 1) lost the free benefits or 2) had to upgrade/pay for the extra stuff afterwards. MuseScore could use some boning up, but it's the best [it also looks the best].

I plan on doing more sheet music, but I haven't really decided what (we'll see). I was hoping to post this stuff on the official VC forums, but there's no such thing; I reckon they did away w/ it long ago and the only 'official' one (left) is this one.

Cheers. Smiley

Hey!

Thanks for all the efforts. Smiley I have stopped for a while in making sheet music, so the other quasi-archive of sheet music has not been updated recently. So, thanks for posting new stuff.

I just want to ask you if it's ok for you to add all of your work to my sheet music thread. Smiley

You're welcome. Smiley

Yes, you're most certainly free to do so... just one word of caution; I may [or may not] make changes/update certain things up there from time to time [I'm kind of a perfectionist]. But I'll let you know if I do.

As of current I'm working on the song 'Heroes & Thieves'; let you know when I'm done.

Peace. Wink

Here's "Heroes & Thieves"... a revised version of it w/ some improvisation on my part. I was gonna pattern my latest after Maag's but found that the note values [as well as the tempo] was in excess of ½, so I had to do away w/ the original copy/arrangement and redo it. I'd run into some roadblocks but took little more than a day to complete.

But I'd just like to add that Maag's & Phu's version(s) isn't obsolete b/c I've come up my my own; in fact if you want a simplified version some of you might find theirs more useful. Wink

C'est la Vie is next, tho' for some reason I never could get thru learning the entire song b/c I got bored. I plan to take the 'Harmonium' sheet music book version & Phu's version kinda put it together.

You're very welcome. Cool

But Phu, Maag, Pianobea [and others] deserve much of the credit b/c they created a template for me to make these sheets to start with. Moreover I'd also created these sheets in a way that they won't be too confusing to learn, on top of printing out as little paper (with as much on each page) as possible, myself included.

BTW, I'm good a learning stuff by ear, but only half way [or 50%]. I tried transcribing this stuff as close to the Real McCoy as possible, adding a few of my own licks, b/c that's what creative artists do. This is something I'd always dreamed of doing & it allows me to get my creative juices flowing. Hard work, but I love it anyhow. Grin

On top of working on C'est La Vie I'm also doing San Francisco, correcting the mistakes in the other version(s), especially the official.

Peace & cheers. Cheesy

Thank you VanessaPiana! Your transcription of "Heroes & Thieves" is excellent, especially the bridge. Smiley

You're very welcome; I'm glad you enjoy the H&Ts arrangement. Grin There's a mistake that I'm gonna have to correct (when I get the chance) & I have a feature on my computer wherein I can delete the voice out (it's mainly for karaoke purposes, but it's useful for transcribing as well) so I can hear the notes better.

I haven't been up here for a while b/c I've had desktop PC problems (I'm gonna need a new one, a laptop specifically) b/f long. I'm also (still) working on Swindler, SF [I came to a standstill on this one] & Annie as well. I think I'm gonna go to Papa & HAWBTW, as well.

Here's another [by Alicia Keys]. I know [and respect] that some of you aren't a fan of hers [and I don't think I am anymore, either based on her personal life; I haven't looked at her the same since], but I just had to share some sheet music I had of hers. (Isn't it ironic that I thought that VC was gonna be the one to fail big time, but it turned out to be AK... the one I least expected the whole time.)

Anyway it's a '70s-inspired neo-soul/jazz/R&B song (12th track) from her 2nd/sophomore LP The Diary Of Alicia Keys (2003) played w/ [not necessarily the Fender Rhodes like VC did w/ her 2nd/sophomore (on 'C'est La Vie' as well] but some sort of electric piano that sounds similar. The sheet music arrangement was kinda messed up so I tried my own hand at correcting the mistakes in there.

Hope y'all like it. Wink
