Unravel – Tokyo Ghoul OP [piano by Animenz]

By the brilliant Animenz!
Piano arrangement by Animenz

Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updated lately, I have been very busy in the last few weeks, and I couldn’t find the time to complete my new sheet.
But today, I finally managed to complete it! Here’s my piano cover of Unravel – the opening song of Tokyo Ghoul!

There are countless piano covers of Unravel on YouTube already, but only very few of them are full versions and until today, I couldn’t find a piano sheet of the full version yet – that’s why I decided to make a full piano cover. I might be a bit late to the party, but better late than never.

Anyway, unravel.
I am pretty sure it’s been a while since I made a transcription with such a high difficulty level. It belongs to my top 3 most difficult transcriptions I ever made, right after “My Dearest” and “Kuusou Mesorogiwi”, mainly because of the very fast speed and the fast jumps in the left hand.
This piece also requires very good hand coordination, because there are many complicated rhythms in this sheet.
It took me longer than usual to learn this piece, but I think it’s worth the effort, especially the “guitar-riffs” in the beginning sounds great on the grand piano.
Another fun fact: This is one of my few transcriptions, which is 99,9% completely true to the original song. I decided to not add any ‘original material’ because the song is amazing enough on its own.

Well then, that would be everything from me!

My next upload will be Kancolle related!
Until then –

(Btw, initially I wanted to upload this video on this Friday, but I since I am a bit superstitious, I decided to publish the video earlier to avoid Friday, the 13th.)

This Game – No Game No Life OP [piano]

Piano Music by Konomi Suzuki

This is probably the most anticipated piano covers of this anime season, because countless people have requested a piano cover of this song. Now, the time has finally come! Here’s my piano cover of the full version of “This Game” – the opening song to No Game No Life!

Initially I didn’t want to upload a piano cover, because there are countless piano covers on YouTube already
(I guess I am really late into the “game”, but better too late than never…)
But I realized that none of them has made a proper piano cover of the FULL version of this song (which was released on 21th may, 2014)

So in the end, I decided to make a piano cover after all, but a full version!

A few words about the transcription itself:
This piano cover are among my top 10 most difficult pieces I’ve ever written, because of the very fast speed and numerous two-hand arpeggios.
My left hand got extremely tired after I practiced this piece for 4 hours straight yesterday, prior to recording.

But I personally had a lot of fun playing this piece, because it has a very intense atmosphere: it’s like you are playing a rock-concert on the piano, especially the intermission part in 3:17.
I omitted the repeat of the chorus at the end, because I thought it was a bit redundant. Instead, I added the “intro-part” at the end to give it a proper closure.

By the way, a few days ago, I released a TV-size piano sheet for this song as well, you can also download it on sheet host, it’s only 1:50 minutes long, essentially an abridged version of the full version sheet.

Download it here:

Alright, this is my final piano cover upload for this spring anime season, I’ll see you in the next anime season again!

PS: You lost the game.

How to Look after your Piano When You Decide To Store it away

Learn to Play The Piano
Instruments are really an extension of ones body part.

Do you own an instrument, a large instrument like a piano? Do you need to store it away? Lot’s of questions would be going through your mind.

You own a piano you love and you find yourself needing to put it in storage for a while. How should you go about doing it?

All instruments and specially if you own a piano needs top care and an environment where moisture is minimized and constant air flows around it.

Experts will argue that you should avoid storing your piano in a locked up room or storage.
But what if you need to put it away, what do yo do? What are your options?

The best storage choice by far is a a climate controlled storage facility. The climate controlled environment will sustain a constant temperature that will be suitable for the wood in the piano and a relative low level of humidity.

Like everything other instrument, pianos are very sensitive to temperature and humidity fluctuations. Constant changes in temperature and humidity can damage the outer wood of the piano case. You can’t keep it too dry other wise it will start cracking and loose it’s shine and tune. Dry environments over a long time periods will crack the piano and warp if it’s too humid.

Furthermore, fluctuating temperature and humidity changes will cause the piano to lose it’s tune sooner or later. The wool cloth within the piano action will deteriorate as well.

If you don’t have a chose of storing your piano through a season it’s probably better to keep and try to maintain a cool summer and perhaps a mild winter climate inside the room.

Pianos do better in colder climates than summer. If a person has to choose between storing a piano in a place that’s very hot versus very cold, the piano will usually fare much better in the cooler place.

It is also wise to protect the the wood finish from small insects that can make a nest within the piano. We’re talking about moths and other little critters that can feed off wood or use it as home. Some experts suggest placing moth balls in the piano during the winter storage period. This will keep most insects at bay. Make sure if you choose to use moth balls that they don’t touch the finish of the piano. Remember to remove the moth balls when you’re back at using the piano.

An expert Pianist – Larry Fine says that a piano that has been kept for years in an area that was damp or unheated should never be moved to a dry location or a well-heated location. Pianos have a life expectancy and any care will increase its longevity. Larry Fine also points out that pianos life expectancy severely degrades by a big margin and will self destruct in a short period of time.

Do not move pianos from a cold climate directly into a hot climate and vice-versa. Keep the temperature leveled during the cold and the hot seasons. Make sure the humidity is kept at a reasonable level too.
