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“Jai Ho” is so popular now that if you haven’t heard it before, you are seriously outdated.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

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.

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.

Because I am Stupid Piano Instrumental (Korean Drama Boys of Flower) – 韩版花样少男

April 13th, 2009 by Ah Doe

I am in love struck mood again…

This is the second “Boys of Flower” that I’ve watched since the Taiwanese version years back.

Boys of Flower

Koo Hye Sun (具慧善) is the Cinderalla who pairs with Lee Min Ho (李敏鎬) in this Korean Drama. Other than Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong (金賢重) is definitely the dream guy of every girl. Kim Sang-bum (金范) and Kim Joon (金俊) are the other 2 member of F4.

If you ask me, I will tell you that my favourite flower boy is Kim Hyun Joong…

This is also why I chose this instrumental piece which is very much connected to his role in this drama: The instrumental version of “Because I am Stupid” by SS501.

About this piano sheet:

1) It’s in original key: A Minor
2) Chords included
3) Purely instrumental

Let’s see how this piano sheet sound like on piano:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

If you’d noticed, this piano piece switches just between several chords and it’s highly repetitive – another recommendation for lower grade piano players.

Have you watched this drama? What do you think about it? Any other songs to recommend from this drama? Well, I am still in the mood to transcribe the songs from this drama, hope to receive more recommendations from you guys out there!

Red Bean – East of Eden (伊甸园之东) Korean Drama

April 7th, 2009 by Ah Doe

There are 56 episodes in this drama and I have neglected lots of my other routine work while rushing it through.

Oh dear, I have almost given up when I realized that the first few episodes are still telling stories about the casts’ childhood. It’s a bit draggy, but somehow due to some reasons that I don’t even know, I just finished it.

There are so many songs in East of Eden soundtrack and I really had a hard time to choose which song to transcribe.

In the end…I chose the song that represents Song Seung Hun (宋承宪) and Lee Yeon Hee (李研希) who acted as a pair of miserable and ill-fated lovers in this drama:

Dong Chul and Young Ran

Yes, this is the same song that Faye Wong (王菲) sang before – Red Bean (红豆), and it has been translated into Korean and fitted into this drama. In fact, the Korean singer Lee Bo Ram (SeeYa) managed to express this song in her own style. Therefore both Chinese and Korean versions are special in their own ways.

About this piano sheet:

1) It’s in original key: C Major

2) Romanized Korean lyrics and chords included

No matter you are Faye Wong’s fans or East of Eden Korean Drama addict, you are likely to know this song. Another good reason that you should try this piano sheet out is: It’s simple!
