Dong Yi, the Korean drama was not bad. Its insert song’s melody was simply too beautiful for me to resist from arranging it. The result is a beautiful piano arrangement. (At least I think so :p) After watching half way through the drama, I also started liking its end theme song.
The Naruto anime series is one of the best, and should be considered a classic. Of course, its theme songs are also up to par. There are a few songs that I especially like from the anime. I like Naruto and its theme songs so much that I’m arranging some of them on the piano as a tribute to all the wonderful people behind the Naruto project. This is actually my second Naruto theme song arrangement. The first one I did is Naruto Shippuden End Theme 2 – Michi~To You All.
I’ve seen some talented piano players play by ear on YouTube. Then, there are many more who comment on those videos and ask how they do it. There are different ways to play a song by ear or arrange it with more care. But here is a simple way to do it. First, you play the melody. Just like the time when you might have needed to perform a melody playback for your piano ear test. Then, you add the left hand.
