YAYYYYY!!! I love this song. I may not like the whole anime dancing and crap (I think it's freaky..), but I definitely love the music. I loved it so much that I asked one of my YouTube friends to make me a ringtone out of it, and I still have it as my ringtone to this day. :) Thanks, Justin!
I also have to thank Philip Walker -- without his sheet music, I probably would've been too lazy to make a video of this song. :)
There was only one BIG issue that I faced while I was recording this. I loved this song so much that I wanted as close to perfect as possible. I would not even accept one tiny mistake. Sure, I can learn a song by playing it a few times, but if I really want to get it perfectly, it takes much longer than just a few times.
You know how the song starts off with a black key glissando? Well, according to Philip's interpretation that I really liked, there is a black key glissando that starts off the piece. There is a "professional" way of executing a black key glissando, and that is by using the side of your index finger and sliding it either up or down, depending on which way the song tells you to go. I must be a noob at glissandos, but I ended up re-recording it so much that I ripped a chunk of my skin off in the area that I was doing the glissandos. Ouch, right? But that did not stop me from playing! I was really adamant about making a perfect recording by that day, or else my day would've gone to waste. So I tried different ways to do a glissando. I even tried my middle finger, but after a few times, I also ripped some skin off. -_____-; At this point I was injured and there was no way I would do another glissando with my left hand, now that I messed up two of my fingers.
I decided it was time to go the most unprofessional way possible to do a glissando -- with my palm. And that's what I did in this video. I'm surprised that it came out just fine, hahha. The real hardcore pianists would realize that I'm playing a glissando with the wrong hand, and playing with the wrong part of the hand, hahah. :)
Anyway, that is my little story of all the pain I went through (literally) to create this video. All in all, I hope you guys like it! :D
Holy crap!! You guys are seriously awesome..
