There's a normal version and an easy version, along with midi files for both. Feel free to post recordings if anyone makes one! c:

Hi, for those of you interested in playing For River - Johnny's Version, I've transcribed and uploaded sheet music for you here.

It's not an overly difficult piece, so even intermediate-beginner players should be able to handle it, I think.
However, I do recommend listening to it again from the soundtrack (or on Youtube) to get a feel for it. This is a very emotional piece, with many and subtle changes in both tempo and volume; the more obvious ones are marked in the sheets.
Anyway, enjoy!

Thank you so much for taking the time to post some sheet music!  I can't wait to sit down and play it.  If you ever get around to doing "Born a Stranger," I would be super happy.  I can play sheet music well, but I am lousy at playing by ear, so I have to sit down and figure everything out measure by measure and write it down which takes time I unfortunately don't have.

Hey, I just registered to come on here and tell you guys that I'm working on a bass duet transcribed from the sheet music. So, any of you that play bass will be able to play the music (it's in tab and standard notation, fyi). It's not the best thing ever, but I think it's a neat little side project for me.

Alright guys, I have the bass duet done for the easy version of the sheet music. Here's a link to a zip file that has the Guitar Pro 6 file, a .WAV file of the music, a MIDI of the music, a .WAV file of the bassline only, a .WAV file of the lead only, and a .pdf of the Guitar Pro file. Hope you enjoy it!:

For River (Easy Bass).zip

And I haven't recorded it myself yet but it should be completely playable. I know for sure the bass line is and I've skimmed over the lead and played parts of it to make sure it's playable also. I'll get on to recording it soon hopefully. If that doesn't happen, it's because I've moved on to other piano pieces.. :\

I can only play the C scale, and have no piano. Challenge accepted.

Luckily I'm fairly good at learning stuff like this so I should be ok with the easy version it once I learn how to play the piano to a decent amount, it's only coordinating my hands at the right time which will be the problem.
