I hope I don't sound rude or anything, but I wanted to point out a few of what I think are errors; I don't know if the score book is at fault, or if I have bad ears, or. xD

Hi Gitarisuto, thanks for the feedback. As the one who tabbed all three of those songs, I can guarantee that they are transcribed directly from the book (of course, there might be a typo so please feel free to point out whatever you think sounds wrong). In addition, I have found places where the score book differs a quite a bit from what the song actually sounds like--in most of these cases I have done my best to "correct" it and add a note explaining the difference.


I actually do think the Come With Me solo sounds correct. I'm pretty sure I hear a simple C major run in the actual track which matches what's in the score.

The Uki Uki New! My Way tab also matches the score book but I think you are right. The solo as transcribed sounds wrong. I'll update the score with the fix (and note).

For the Singing! solo, I'm pretty sure the ascending tones that you hear are meant to be represented by the "x" hammer-ons, probably indicating you should just slide your hand up the neck while tapping. It doesn't sound right at all in Guitar Pro. I'll add a note to that effect.

I've been listening to "Singing!" and noticed something missing from the tab. I'm away from my computer and can't tab anything out at the moment, but I could in a few days if needbe.

During the chorus, there's a fill in Yui's guitar part (during the F Major chord) that's not included in the tab. You can hear it at 1:08 and 2:14 in this video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4swDSNKkpWI

Also, in Azusa's guitar part, directly after the guitar solo is an arpeggiated chord progression that's not in the tab for some reason. You can hear it in this video at 2:44.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75dmyYT485E

I wonder why some parts don't get included in score books like these? I can understand some stuff not being included (like the doubling of Yui's rhythm guitar in Fuwa Fuwa time which plays arpeggiated chords instead of strummed chords during the chorus) but not stuff like this.

My understanding was that the score represents the way the songs were originally written, but the musicians improvised a little on the take recorded for the CD, which explains the differences. I'll see about updating the score when I get some time.

Alright, I've made a few edits to the tabs and wondered if I could get some feedback.

Here's "NO, Thank You," a couple rather insignificant changes here. A change of the chord at the end of the choruses from an out-of-key A Major to an A Minor. Also, in the final chorus, in Yui's guitar part, there's a pick slide and tremolo-picked octave part with wah, just a little different from the way it's done earlier in the song.

Spoiler:



Here's "Curry Nochi Rice." Azusa's octave/wah guitar part wasn't included the second time it comes around, so I copy/pasted it in the right place. In addition, I added the rhythm guitar for the solo, as best as I could hear it.

Spoiler:


Lastly, here's "Fudepen." I added the arpeggiated rhythm guitar part that shows up in the opening/middle/ending riff. I know there's an acoustic guitar part in that song, but eh... *Lazy* xD

Spoiler:






If there are any problems that crop up, things that don't really sound right, it's probably because I don't use GuitarPro, I use TuxGuitar and it has a tendancy to mess things up when converted to GPro. But the rhythm stuff should be OK...

I have started on "Singing!," adding in some of the left-out parts. I haven't finished yet.

Hope this helps. xD

Nice catch on the A Major chord, and I agree with the guitar change but I think it's for both Yui and Azusa's parts.

Ah, Curry Nochi Rice. As far as I know, the official score only includes the 4-nin version, and ChorpSaway tabbed it faithfully, so Azusa's part wasn't there at all. Later, I added it, but mostly for my own use, then I forgot about it and uploaded it.

Cool, I'll take a look a this later.

If you want, I can incorporate these changes into the tabs (with credit to you of course) since I have Guitar Pro. That might make it easier for you.

That would be great, thanks!

I've finished up the changes to "Singing!"

YUI'S PART

AZUSA'S PART

So, yeah. Um. That didn't go quite as well, and maybe it would be best to keep some of it the way the score says.

All in all the changes sound right and match what I hear. I'll integrate them in Guitar Pro.

Someone please fix "Hello Little Girl". In fact, just redo it. It's poorly done...
I would do it myself, but I don't have any resources.

Oh yeah, you're right, that sounds much better. I do still hear a C in the bass but it may be a mistake more than anything.

As for that Bm chord and the clashing, I was actually referring to the double-stops in the last chorus, right after the G chord.



The E and C should clash pretty badly with Yui's Bm chord. Mostly the C...

I just checked, by playing Azusa's part soloed, and Yui's part soloed, at the same time. It sounds pretty awful. xD But in the song, Azusa's part is so buried in the mix you can't tell.

Thanks for helping me out with this! Next I think I'll try and fix up "Fuwa Fuwa Time" and add the arpeggios in the chorus, and I'll at least attempt to add Azusa's part for "My Love is a Stapler," although that may be hard to hear.

@ AznAndy94: I'm primarily a guitar player, so my ears aren't as attuned to hearing mistakes in other instrument parts, but other than a few flat notes in the piano solo, Hello Little Girl sounds pretty darn close to me.





EDIT: Managed to finish the changes to Fuwa Fuwa Time tonight.

YUI'S PART
Spoiler:


AZUSA'S PART
Spoiler:


So, yeah. xD Lots of minor changes, and if something just seems off, keep it the way the score says. Take your pick. (Pun intended)

Does anyone still have the scans? I could take a look at this but I'd rather have the original in my hand before I start mucking around with it.

Edit: Singing! version 2 is up, with Gitarisuto's fixes. NO, Thank you! version 2 is also up.

Gitarisuto, regarding Fuwa Fuwa Time: What source are you basing your changes off of? Because there's a (Studio Mix) and a (Live Mix) and each of them is slightly different. In fact some of the changes you made are already present in one or the other of the two versions.

I was using the 5-person studio version tab, and this video singling out the guitar parts from the song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5sW8jehLDs




EDIT: I decided to tab out the short jingles that play in between the A and B parts of K-On!, "Kendama-kun" and "Tenpura-kun." Everything went well except for the drums... I'm not very familiar with transcribing drum parts, so there may be some bad errors there. Especially on "Tenpura-kun."

Figured I'd post this as well, it's a PDF of the piano part for "Hesitation," from the season 1 OST. I transcribed it a few months ago.

Gitarisuto, I was looking at your tabs to Fuwa Fuwa Time and during the arpeggio parts, I noticed there was a bit of a difference from what I hear. I used the same video that you used to change my tabs of the song a while back and I heard something more like this.

It's not much of a difference, but my OCD was bugging me a bit =w=. I could be wrong, but I can swear I'm hearing this instead.

That sounds good, yeah. Although that very first B in measure 37 should be a C (to go over the G#/C chord in the other guitar part).




BTW, I transcribed the piano part to "Snowy Morning" from the movie soundtrack, in PDF-form. I'm not sure if you can do grace notes in Garageband...

Edit: Here's "Hold On Your Love." I had only intended to do the guitar parts, but I decided to do the other instruments as well. The organ became increasingly difficult to hear as the song progressed...

Edit 2: In case I change title names or something, or the links don't work, go here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7kg3djtiwono3pz/FJxNIk-9m2

Nice work on Hold On Your Love. I covered that a while ago, and it'd have been a ton easier with a proper tab I had to get my teacher to help me work out a few bits of it. I also covered Stylish Mistake and Shiosai to Yuuhi. You can find the videos on my channel; they might help if you decide to tab those

Thanks! I've seen your videos on YT, you have an awesome guitar. xD I covered Stylish Mistake recently, so I know how to play that. I'll be tabbing that and "Pasadena FWY" out soon.

I transcribed "Coffee with Bossa" from the movie soundtrack... But I don't play piano and my chord voicings are just messed up (as with all my piano transcriptions). xD I got some help from my guitar teacher on a couple chords (jazz theory is fun), so I'll have that up soon.

Edit: I tabbed out Yui's solo guitar version of "My Love is a Stapler," from the first episode of Season 2. It was kinda hard to write out the rhythm in a way that worked and sounded any good, I didn't wanna write full chords the whole time in order to stress when the strums were lighter/shorter... xD

I had to listen very carefully on a few chords to get the voicings correct. For example, I didn't hear the thickness of the lower 5th in the B-flat Major 7 at the beginning that you would normally get with a 5-th string root position, and the sliding up sound after the F/C confirmed that the bass note is on the 6th string. There's a C9 before the first verse, I didn't hear the 3rd in there or the lower 5th (I also checked for an F, but couldn't hear one) and decided to leave the 4th string muted. The D-flat dim chord after the first C in the chorus took me a few guesses, I thought it was just an A/C# like in the original, but I found that I couldn't hear an A in there at all and could faintly hear a G (the flattened 5th).

I was kinda hoping that the Gm was actually a Gm7, but I was wrong on that. xD These voicings do differ quite a bit from the way it's played in the full song.





Edit: So, I started "Falling Reinforced Concrete" this evening. I got the rhythm guitar done without much trouble. The lead guitar... I kinda gave up. Slowing it down didn't help a lot past a certain point. The timing was very difficult to figure out in some sections, and once the pick-tapping began I just left it. I'll post what I've got so far, but I dunno if I'll be finishing this.
