爱拼才会赢 – Success only comes with Striving

June 7th, 2009 by Ah Doe

I received this email a week ago:

Hi ahdoe

Please can you help me look for the music score for this hokkien song “ai pia cia eh yia”.I am helping a friend who needs it urgently for her aged mum suffering from 3rd stage cancer.This old lady has been looking for it quite sometime.

Thanks

What will you do if you were me? This is a classic Hokkien song but I don’t really see any demand for it…

However, for the sake of helping some needy people out there, I have absolutely no time to ignore this request.

So, here you are…

Again and again, I have been creating so many by products from this drama. Some will be happy and sorry for those who don’t appreciate it.

This piano sheet has been requested by numerous people who are still yearning for songs from Boys over Flowers. Singapore’s U Channel is also airing this drama now and I expect more requests to come in soon.

All of a sudden I just wondered if the Boys over Flowers fans will be interested if I publish the whole set of piano sheets from this drama. I am serious!

I’d appreciate your effort to click on the survey on the panel at your right hand side with this title: “Are you interested in buying the Boys of Flowers piano sheets collection?

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – By Request

May 7th, 2009 by Ah Doe

I am pretty sure you guys are very curious what will be Ah Doe’s next project. So many songs to choose from and so many requests to fulfill. The filtering itself is already a big thing to do.

Trust me, while you guys are wondering what will be the next piano sheet, Ah Doe is also wondering the same thing.

Coincidently, this song is another song from Alexandre Desplat, the composer for soundtracks of The Painted Veil and Lust Caution.

And this time….The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, one of the best movies I have seen in year 2009.

To be honest, I was so into the movie that I neglected the music from this movie. The motivation to arrange this piano sheet is from my readers’ request. Other than that, it’s very simple to transcribe (Compared to some of my other works) and I don’t have to prepare the lyrics for it.

Yeah, I am lazy…

As usual, some information regarding this piano sheet:

1) Original key: D Major and a very very very small portion of Bb Major. (That small portion is less than 5 bars)

2) Chords included

3) Easy piano piece for piano players above Grade 3.

4) It’s a 3 count song, play it expressively like how a Waltz is supposed to sound like.

What else? I guess many of you would just probably look for this download link without going through all the details above…am I right?

Well…here you are…

Playing “Jai Ho” on your piano

April 24th, 2009 by Ah Doe

“Jai Ho” is so popular now that if you haven’t heard it before, you are seriously outdated.

There is this must-learn Jai Ho dance as well.

Jai Ho Dance

It’s so popular that even Pussycat Dolls can’t resist its charm.

Ah Doe also can’t wait to join them too.

The guy who keep singing “Jai Ho” in the background is A.R Rahman, who is a well-known producer in India. Without his voice, “Jai Ho” is no longer the Jai Ho we always listen to.

My Indian colleague told me that Jai Ho actually means “Victory” in Indian. With the election going on in India, some candidates paid for the copyright and played this song in their campaign. Wow!

I’ve designed this piano sheet with heavy bass at the left hand just to emphasize on the Indian rhythmic percussions. Other than its speed and beat counting, this piano sheet poses no significant difficulty.

Some information about this piano sheet:

1) It’s in B Major
2) Lyrics included, in English of course, excluding some Indian phrases like “Jai Ho” and “Bai La Bai La”
3) Chords included
4) Sample piano sheet demo available, please click the play button below to listen.

Have fun!

Nae Moriga Nabbaso/ Because I am Stupid (Korean Drama Boys over Flower) by SS501 – 韩版花样少男

April 20th, 2009 by Ah Doe

Another piano sheet from the Flower Over Boys Korean Drama.

Boys over Flower Poster

As I mentioned in my last post, this song represents Kim Hyun Joong’s (金賢重) character in Flower over Boys drama.

For those who didn’t know, Kim Hyun Joong is also the leader of SS501 boy band. Therefore one of the voices you hear in this song belongs to him.

In one scene of this drama, he openly sang the unplugged version of this song in front of the throng to raise money for his love one.

The main difference between this version and the previous instrumental version is their tempo and the bass. This version is generally the mirror of the original vocal version by SS501.

My summary is: This version harder (Ooops!) but more faithful to the original.

This piano sheet is designed in its original key, i.e. D Major. One thing good about the accompaniment is that its chords are repetitive. Other than this, the chords and romanized lyrics are included for your convenience.

How this piano sheet sounds like:

If you find it too hard to play, Ah Doe’s advice is to remove some notes from the rich harmonics so that you will can spare your fingers for a while.
