    Well done indeed. Pauses can be hard to manage so kudos on keeping everything consistent.

    Cheap plug alert! You might want to check out the Museum of Souls in off topic. Can show off any art you like there

    Sound pretty accurate. You should try playing other tunes from dark souls like the boss fights or different area tunes.

    Welcome to the forums and have fun posting.

    This is awesome. Very good work! ❤

    I saw your youtube comment about the transcription. Do you think you could post it here as well when you're able to? I'd love to do another 8-bit Dark Souls arrangement, but my ear isn't the best and I rely on sheet music. AFAIK Gwyn's theme is the only other thing transcribed so far.

    How do know you that? :shock: Are you a musician as well?

    During the long notes or silences, music has to keep "moving" so the line or flow is not broken. Took me many years to achieve that, glad someone notices!

    Is that a proposal to make an 8-bit arrangement of Firelink`s theme with my sheet music?...

    ...

    That would be EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!

    I`ll post my arrangement here ASAP.

    "Musician" might be too strong of a word but I dabble which you might have noticed judging by another post of yours. Sadly my ear outperforms my hands by a wide margin so I can come up with obscure compliments but couldn't play that without a few years hard work likely

    This would be awesome. I currently have your 8-bit rendition of Gwyns theme as my ringtone! big grin

    Done. Who needs a manuscript when you can have free musical notation software?

    mediafire.com ?agg1s0e34zb2do6

    There are some details I was not able to transcribe (free but not user-friendly software), and you need to know them in order to do the 8-bit piece:

    - Some quarter notes from bars 17 to 32 last longer than written, listen carefully to the original track.
    - The chords of the 1st and 3rd section have crescendos and diminuendos within themselves, this is impossible to do on a piano, but can be done with the 8-bit emulator.
    - There are small ritenutos at the end of every chord of the 1st and 3rd section. Don`t know if your software can emulate that, but hey, try!

    Just listen the original track really hard for those details, and maybe even more that I might have overlooked.

    Now, your turn. Praise the Sun

    BTW, send me a message if you have questions or doubts about the arrangement. Bow

    You did a really good job with this song. It seems similar to the moonlight butterfly/gwyndolin theme in terms of playstyle, and that's also a very fun piece to play.

    Awesome, thanks again! This is hugely appreciated.

    I'll be using the NES, so I'll likely have to take a lot of liberties (and probably use a lot of 'arpeggio effects') to condense everything down to 3 melodic voices, one of which doesn't even have volume control.

    Ritenutos are no problem. I'll get started!
