Triplets being played on a guitar with heavy effects added, including light flanger and very heavy wah.

Like a lot of other lyrics from anime.

Sorry to hear that. But wow, i didn't know you will be banned for post a licensed song. Can't you write them an e-mail to tell them the situation (or make up something)?

You can upload the video to

www.megavideo.com

or

www.putfile.com

And you shouldn't have any copywrite issues.

But it does suck if they deleted your entire account for something like that with no warnings (there is a warning system)

If they gave me a warning, I'll be glad to remove it asap. But no, I'm striked out without knowing it.

Sorry mods for going out of topic. This'll be my last post about it.

Well, it's only six days to go for the quality realese anyway. Yes, you can find full version on Nico now too. But quality is a piece of shit.

I'll hold off on listening to the leaks, since it'll be much more satisfying when the actual CDs are out. Plus, the CDs will have B-sides that might be worth a listen.

"Happy!? Sorry!!" on the OP single, and "Sweet Bitter Beauty Song" on the ED.

I cannot wait for these. I very rarely import them, but these might be worth it!

Aww that sucks that your profile was deleted.
I hope they release an OST as well, because I like a lot of the background music.

Er, wait, am I listening to the right part of the song? All I can hear is the drums, keyboard and bass, so I just assume the guitar is hiding behind the bass by doing something similar. I mean, I'm sure you can get that kind of sound on a guitar, but....

.... doesn't leave Mugi with much to do now, does it? Poor gal.

Anyway, the ED is nothing to me without the actual animation and that leaked full still makes it seem like it's just the TV edit times two with that odd breakdown at the end. OP gets bonus points for me being able to listen to it without having to look at anything. And it gets more bonus points for having mini-solos. Mio's "RI~TSU!" was also way too cute.

Interested in hearing the B sides as I tend to like those more when it comes to most anime singles.

When they are showing the names, around 0:26 in this video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUKwH81csts

I suppose if they are going for consistency (and it appears they do, if I am correct that would be the only overdub in the entire song), that would actually be the keyboard playing.

The bass is playing a very low "2 0 0" type pattern, while the guitar is playing two consecutive chords followed by two mute picks (creating a chk-chk sound).

The problem with the consistency is that at the very end there is a keyboard "sweep" which would make it impossible for the effect we are hearing to be played by the keyboard (as it is obviously doing something else).

In summary, it's either the keyboard or guitar, but whichever it is, there is inconsistency as it creates the need for one of the instruments to play two things at once. This does surprise me, as the ED video does trick you into thinking that it is totally inaccurate, as it appears Mio isn't playing anything and has her hand off of the neck while the bass is still actually playing. However, upon a few more second of observation, you can see they are cleverly hiding her picking hand, and since the bass is only playing open notes, her hand doesn't need to be anywhere near the neck. The biggest problem I have is when Mio seems to have a deathgrip on the neck of her guitar. I suppose it is possible to have your hand located correctly that low on the neck so that you could play those high notes in the correct order and all that without moving it, but I find it highly unlikely. I'll find out tomorrow when I tab out the song for myself.

Of course, none of this matters anyway XD

As a final thought, let me just say that they seem to be very good at hiding the guitar in the final mix of the song, only having it apparent when they want it to be, yet letting be played through out the entirety of both the OP and the ED. It's very easy to lose track of if you don't have a keen ear for instruments like that.

I like the music and everything, the ending more than the opening, but I was hoping it would be better considering where the characters got their names.

Their family names all come from (mostly) former members of P-Model. (P-Model entry on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P-Model)

Taken from the K-On! article on Wikipedia (contains some spoilers so don't click if you want to avoid them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-on):

Yui Hirasawa = P-Model guitarist and founder Susumu Hirasawa
Mio Akiyama = former P-Model bassist Katsuhiko Akiyama
Ritsu Tainaka = former P-Model drummer Sadatoshi Tainaka
Tsumugi Kotobuki = former P-Model keyboardist Hikaru Kotobuki


Damn, beaten due to editing. :P
