    Soarin' sheet music for piano!

    Hiya, folks! I'm absolutely in love the music Jerry Goldsmith wrote for Soarin' over California, every second of it. Starting in the last half of 2008, I started arranging it by ear for piano, as I am wont to do with music I love, and I posted a performance of it on YouTube in September:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HJ8W3l3m8M&feature=channel_page"]Soarin'[/ame]

    But my arrangements change over time, and I think I've vastly improved it since then, and I felt like writing it down so I could share it. So...yeah, here it is, for those of you who like playing piano and would like to play this particular score without having to figure it all out.

    FINAL VERSION (with loading music and title page)

    If you're a piano player, take a look, give it a shot if you want, let me know what you think. I suppose I'm more interesting in notation-related critiques than ones about the arrangement itself; I know some parts aren't terribly idiomatic, but it fits pretty well under the hands and it's fun to play and it sounds faithful to the original.

    Enjoy, and please don't try to redistribute this for money or anything! :P (Also, if you happen to have seen a similar post of mine on another unrelated board, I apologize for the partial copy-and-pasting...it just seemed more efficient than typing up a whole new message.)

    It's excellent! I already downloaded it, saved it to my computer, and listened to the track while following the sheet music. It's great! Way to go, my friend!

    Haha, thank you. It's not all that hard, though, Jordiekins. My approach to arranging is partially just instinctive, so the stuff I'm playing tends to be pretty...natural, I guess? It's supposed to be playable, because I wouldn't be able to enjoy playing it if it weren't.

    Sounds great! Thanks for doing that. I'm too out of practice to play it, but maybe I'll start practicing more again (after MANY years).

    Re: Soarin' sheet music for piano!

    Thanks, guys! Glad you like it. Another thing - if you happen to get a chance, I'd love to hear your renditions of it! I'm far from the best pianist out there, so it's quite possible that some of you could do a better job with my arrangement than I can.
