Rurou no Tami -Indonesian ver.-

Kimiboshi is not as easy as I first thought orz

This vocaloid soft ballad song by 40mP doesn’t seem like a technically difficult song on quick glance. Relatively normal range span, no fast tongue-twisting passages, no screams….

After several (desperate) tries, turns out that it’s not as easy as it seems. There are many difficult passages, not to mention the emotional expressiveness it demands.

I sing the melodies one octave lower than the original, which is too low for my light voice. It sounds too thin. If I transpose to match my sweet spot, I lose the higher notes (my upper limit is lacking compared to an average guy’s staple notes).

Seems that I have to bring higher notes heavier to match the lower notes on the leaping part before the reff (‘kimi no egao ga setsunasugite’). Then I need to lighten the first line of the reff (‘hokoreru hodo nanimo dekinakute’) or I’ll lose the highest notes. Once I’ve securely settled on the reff, I want to bring heavier voice for the last line (‘.. kiesatte shimatte mo..’). Easier said than done. It’s difficult to get that ‘free all-out climax’ like what I heard in good covers of this song.

Meh. I’m gonna try it and post it, no matter how fail it will be.

Baibi-Beibi Sayonara Lyrics ~improved romaji~

Due to an unexpected circumstances and misfortune, I have to cover this song. I was a bit disappointed when I checked the romaji lyrics transcription featured in a blog. Many mistakes in the transliteration, mostly it sounds just right but the writer jumbled many syllables,  many of them don’t form correct words since spaces are seemingly inserted at random. I wonder if the writer really has no knowledge in Japanese (at least, to chop up streams of heard syllables into words, and to tell which ones are root words and which ones are particles or inflections), or he simply wrote it that way on a whim.

Please give me your feedback if you find something wrong 🙂

Tsugai Kogarashi Vocal Sheet

Fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. At glance, it’s obvious that this is a demanding song, spanning a wide range of octaves. Another thing is, it has quite complex harmony parts for both male and female vocal. I really want to cover this song, but I don’t know when I am ready enough for it.

The harmony arrangement might be difficult for beginner vocalists (like me!) to sing by just hearing the song. After hours of searching, I found a video on NND with vocal score displayed in sync with the melody (forgot the link, sorry :p ).

Since I have nothing else to do, I rewrite the score, making small changes (such as rewriting Kaito’s part in bass clef).  And now I will share it with you, for those who need it 🙂

Working with Lilypond

Well, the first purpose I write this sheet was to familiarize myself with Lilypond. It is a unique score writing application. Take a look at this picture to see how a score is made (‘engraved’) with Lilypond.

Those code in colors are a part of source file which will be translated by Lilypond into PDF sheet music, which is seen behind. Due to a bug in the software, the PDF output is a bit flawed (something wrong with PDF anti-aliasing and the underlying TeX typesetting engine). If you want a better result, I recommend you to compile into PS output instead of the default PDF, and print directly from it.

Here’s the Lilypond source code if you want to compile it yourself.
