We actually already have this over at :) The arrangement isn't as clean as it could be, but it sounds great. Have fun!

This is sounding awesome, guys! I'm so proud of you all. :-*

Well, you don't just need two note chords. In the D example, you can have A D A, D A D, etc. You don't just need it how you had it before. And also, I'm not saying it's necessary to have it this way everywhere. Just play with it. If something sounds wrong, try throwing in a "power chord," which is what I always heard them called.

I liked the three note one better. It just needs some tweaking.

It's called a staccato. :) Sadly, even with that, I think the same problem's still there. It sounds great, but it doesn't sound RIGHT. Try changing some of the chords into power chords. (1sts and 5ths only) Sorry I can't make some of these changes myself, but I don't have Notepad. :(

Hmm. That's more along the lines of what I'm looking for, but it could still probably use some fine tuning. Notice how some parts, with this version, sound really good, and close to the original, while others sound a little different. For example, take 11-14. Though the chords appear to be right, it sounds a little off regardless. In those places, power chords might be the better way to go. A couple other places sound a little strange, but as we ARE throwing around notes that aren't in the original, it's all up to everyone's personal preference. Play around with it, and see if you can get it a little closer.

Also, I'm not saying it's just 11-14, or that those four are particularly problematic. They just sound a little strange to me. I may or may not be wrong. Are you still working in whatever jazz scale this is in when putting in chords?

Lastly, try putting in the oom-pah in the bass. Let's see what that does.

This is sounding really good! Keep it up!

That sounds really good, Bloop, but I agree that we need some oom-pah on it. Not so much that the song isn't the same, but enough so that the strong drive is still there. Consider the "pah" to be the snare in the original song.

EDIT - Also, I definitely DON'T think it's too excessive. If anything, it's not enough. The song is hardcore, so it needs a lot to feel full. You might want to make some of the chords 3-note instead of 2-note, and work on the bass stuff, but you've definitely got the right idea. You guys are all doing great!

Bloop: I'm not saying we should REMIX it or anything. I'm just saying we should add in notes so it sounds more like the original, even if those notes don't actually exist. For example, with the brass sections, the music sounds like it has a lot of chords and parts, even though--technically--there's just a B, or similar. I'm saying we should add in other notes to capture the full effect.

This looks good. :) I'm thinking it would sound a lot better, though, with chords (in melody and bassline), and less staccato. Anyone here agree? Again, this song would be a lot better if, rather than trying to use just the original notes, we embellished on it, so it sounds just as good on piano as in a band.

What you have so far sounds really good. I never though about the bass going that way, but it seems to fit somehow. Bb is possible, but my key was based on what WIDI says.

Some parts of your arrangement sound a little questionable, but that could just be because we haven't embellished on the melody yet. Either way, your version is definitely better than mine, except perhaps for the key signature. (I hope I'm right about the key: 5 flats is evil)

Anyone else here have any ideas?

Hey guys. I whipped up a quick little sample of some stuff I've figured out. The timing is off (especially in the bass!) and some of the bass notes may be wrong, but it could help get some of you guys started. I'm fairly confident the song is in B minor... and it looks like it switches between 3/4 and 4/4. Also, later on, there IS a key change.

Good catch. I'm not just posting to advertise, though. That's evil. ;)

You know you're a music nerd when you run a music website. Sadly.

I love Psych, haha. It's definitely got a strange sense of humor, but it's hilarious. It's one of my favorite T.V. shows hands-down!

Haha, yeah, I always noticed that. Such a ridiculous song.

That's exactly what I meant when I said there's a difference between "arrangements" and "transcriptions." A transcription just copies down the notes, no matter how simple they may be, while an arrangement adds and removes parts to make the song better transfer onto a new instrument, band, et al.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out! :)
