Title: Sheet Music - "For River"/To the Moon

Finally got the pack done! :)

Johnny's Version (Courtesy of AthenaADP): http://www.mediafire.com/view/?8h8a3dk1zzdrar6 (http://www.mediafire.com/view/?8h8a3dk1zzdrar6)


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:

Edit/Update:

Synthesia videos posted by Paul L. that might help!:

Hi, for those of you interested in playing For River - Johnny's Version, I've transcribed and uploaded sheet music for you here ([url]http://www.mediafire.com/view/?8h8a3dk1zzdrar6[/url]).

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 ([url]http://www.youtu.be/7T_hV3uyB74[/url])) 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 (http://www.4shared.com/zip/byQFPgMy/For_River__Easy_Bass_.html)

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.

First time poster here; loved the game so much, it haunts my mind. Especially the music. So I'm going crazy here; I want sheet music for all the songs, not "just" For River. What I'm wondering is basically; WHERE CAN I FIND IT!?  :-* I simply must have it for songs like Having Lived and Born a Stranger. Is there any site where I can get them all?

Hello there. So I did a cover of "Born a Stranger" and heard you guys wanted sheet music.

It's transposed three half-steps down, so it sounds a little less like the official soundtrack version and more how it sounded in the actual game. Sheets are in the description, but if you don't want to watch my cover of it, then the sheets are right below the link to the video. Also, if you want it transposed back to the original, talk to me and I'll see what I can do :D

i am looking around now for a few days (no kidding) and i found only one video of johnnys version that sounds exactly like in game. i cant find the sheets, but if someone is still interested, or able to confirm for sure that this is indeed the version we hear in game, please say so. heres the link

The sheets to Johnny's version are linked to in the youtube video description. For the less initiated, click here (http://code.google.com/p/quellatalo-nin-transcriptions) and navigate to transcription To the Moon ~ For River - Piano (Jonny's Version) r381.

You hear several versions in the game, that's why there's also several versions provided on the OST. I'm quite certain that's the one Johnny plays whilst at NASA in-game (and is probably used elsewhere).

Ah, thank you, I didn't see it the first time. I know there are more versions, but i was confused cause the ones Kan gave us on sheets aren't like any in game. Anyways, the version Johnny plays at NASA is the same one as his original "For River" so... It's all good :D Now i need to find the Sarah and Tommy ones... And a friend to play it with me :)

In case anyone is still interested, I took the sheets for Johnny's version of For River (props to AthenaADP) and transcribed them to a MIDI file. If you have Synthesia, this will be a great addition.

I have included the majority of the major tempo changes in the piece (as indicated in the sheet and the soundtrack song) and a few of the volume changes towards the end. All the arpeggios have been kept for accuracy, but you may find them hard to play in Synthesia. The performance is synthetic, unfortunately - as soon as I master this piece, I'll be sure to come back with a MIDI recording!

Here it is. Enjoy. (https://dl.dropbox.com/s/h3dgetm5n49s6hn/For%20River%20-%20Johnny%20V.mid?dl=1)


I have also found three errors in the transcription, so if anyone can edit the sheet, these would be something to think about:

Actually, The One Johnny Plays At NASA Is Still 'Johnny's Version.'
This One Is 'To The Moon - Piano  (Ending Version),' It Plays Over The end Credits.

Hope That Clears Things Up!

Is it just me, or is this version on a different key from one in the OST?

@Duodecim: You are quite right that the sheet music is arranged in a different key than the OST. Let me shift the discussion a bit to the music of the game (because that's what I am familiar with): Searching the web reveals that RPG Maker includes a pitch shifting option, and it seems to me that Kan used it liberally; some of the variations are not among the .ogg files included with the game. The game includes one variation of For River played in C major (called the "piano version") and three in D major. (intro, ending, "recording version"). However, I have heard versions in C sharp (the version you point to), B (the first view of the house interior within the game) and B flat (can't remember where this one was) played within the game as well. Some of these were slightly out of tune with my Roland E-16, indicating that they were pitch-shifted. Additionally, a cursory glance at the OST reveals an extended main theme/intro which modulates towards the end (the game version does not), sounding very pitch-shifty as well.

So it would be fair to say that this is only a matter of arrangement.

So I typeset it in Lilypond, resulting in http://zlkj.in/moon (http://zlkj.in/moon). The vocals aren't really correct, so I might update it with fixed rhythm and notes at some point.
